Using SAMe for Osteoarthritis
S-adenosyl-L-methionine is commonly known as SAMe for obvious reasons, and has been used to treat a number of problems ranging from depression to liver cirrhosis. However, many people also use it to treat osteoarthritis, and while the initial reason for trying it as an anti-inflammatory are unclear, studies have indicated that it can reduce the swelling and pain associated with this joint condition.
That would indicate powerful anti-inflammatory properties, since arthritis is an inflammatory condition brought on either by an overactive immune system or an inflammatory response to damage or excessive wear to the bones and/or cartilage. Several controlled studies have shown that SAMe reduces stiffness and inflammation in arthritic joints, and then goes on to improve the overall health of the joints in the subject's body.
Although there is no evidence that SAMe has a similar effect on rheumatoid arthritis, it certainly appears effective with osteoarthritis, caused by damage to the bone or cartilage, even to the extent of offering the same or even more effective results than ibuprofen or naproxen.

Though discovered in 1952, the past six years have crowned SAMe as one of the most widely used supplements in today’s marketplace. As a natural line of support to the nervous system functions, it increases the synthesis and breakdown of certain neurotransmitters, thus enhancing the sensitivity of nerve receptors. It may also aid in the repair of myelin, the sheath of fatty material that surrounds the nerve cells. SAMe may support joint health through transulfuration, a process that takes a certain amount of sulfur from SAMe to create glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates. This enhances proteoglycan synthesis, the molecule responsible for keeping articular joint cartilage lubricated. Important for the production of glutathione, this powerful free radical scavenger defends the body from toxic agents and is necessary for liver detoxification.*
