    It's one step away from homocysteine. I wouldn't do it.

    SAM-e was mentioned in Freddd's discussion about his protocol, not in Rich's as far as I can remember. It's the "active" form of methionine if you will, and it's typically low in people with methylation issues.

    If you're already taking reduced folate and active B12, SAM-e is one extra element to experiment with, starting at a low dose of say 100-200mg.

    It can be useful to deal with histamine issues for under-methylators, helps supporting neurotransmitters balance, supports glutathione dependent enzymes, helps maintaining a healthy connective tissue.

    I've been on a and off of it for some time and I haven't seen or felt major differences. Other people have found it very helpful.

    At dosages of 100-400mg it's very safe (don't take without adequate methyl supplements or it could raise your homocysteine)

    cheers

    Yasko's Holistic Health All In One Multi contains some methionine along with many co-factors for methylation. I'm taking a ridiculously small amount, but doing well with it.
