WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY:
Below is a summary of the feedback we gathered from the product's ACTUAL customers:
* Great product that succeeded where over-the-counter pain killers failed! I am a 71-year old male who used to suffer from arthritis pain but thanks to SAM-e, for the first time in a couple of years, I slept and woke up from bed without feeling any pain at all! Plus, its mood-claming effect is also a nice plus!
* I love it because it helps to enhance my mood! Thanks to SAM-e, I feel a lot more cheerful and energetic than before! If you have mood or depression issues then definitely go for it!
* Seems like a well-made product that produces the desired results. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something beyond the typical "prescription drugs"!
* I have been fighting depression since a long time but after I started taking SAM-e, I realized that the stressful things that used to make me depressed in the past no longer bog me down!
* I am taking it for 8 months now and I can say that SAM-e definitely enhances my mood and helps me deal with stress! On top of that, I am able to think and act more clearly now! Highly recommended!
* This is a great antidepressant that helps with mood enhancement, does not have any side effects, is cheaper than most prescription drugs and can be easily purchased over-the-counter!
* I have been consuming SAM-e for a long time and I can definitely feel the positive effect it has on my mind and body! I would recommend it to anyone who suffers from mood-balancing problems!
* I purchased this product to treat my depression after a recommendation from Dr. OZ, and I can say that I no longer feel depressed! It does not work for everyone though; however, if it is going to work for you, it should show its effect within a week of its regular consumption!
* Product is good, but don't buy from this brand as it seems to be selling dubious supplements which are not potent enough! Try some of the other brands of SAM-e!
* This brand of SAM-e is ineffective compared to the other brands!
* I got stomach cramps (which resulted in frequent tips to the restroom) due to its use. Still, the positive result offered by this product far outweighs the negative side effects!
* I did not feel any mood enhancing effect after consuming the SAM-e sold by this brand. Therefore, I DO NOT recommend THIS brand!
* I take SAM-e regularly, but the effects of this brand's product are not as good as those gotten from the other brands!
* Big waste of money. I bought it after reading so many positive reviews. Oh well…!
* Buyer beware! This vendor seems to be a cheat and fraud!
* This brand's product seems to be counterfeit to me! I purchased SAM-e from another brand and it was terrific!
As I have benefited from its use personally (with varying levels), I cannot recommend SAM-e enough! I used it mainly for my depression, and let us face it, SAM-e's positive effects on mood enchantment is legendary, so do you really need a second opinion on this? However, I would not recommend this particular brand. It seems to me that the positive reviews were mostly left by those who used one or the other brands of SAM-e, and NOT necessarily this particular brand!
If you really want to buy SAM-e, buy the Jarrow Formulas's version. It is probably the most expensive of all the brands available but also the most effective in my own experience, not to mention that I was totally floored by the company's customer service (NOT Amazon.com's)!
Remember, as with anything else in life, you get what you pay for! I can understand if you are a cheapskate with food, gifts, clothing, housing, but if you are a cheapskate even when buying supplements, that too for your own treatment, then shame on you! You pay cheap, you get junk; there's no two ways about it!
