What does everyone think of using SAMe for mild anxiety and stress?
Hello Sandra - Personally, I don't think much of it at all. If you are dealing with "mild" issues... then perhaps a change in your routine, eating habits and types of food, changing your daily routine and sleep habits. I think changing things you can control might work better for you, in that instance, than supplements. You haven't mentioned anything about your daily routine, how you eat, do you exercise at all, walk or swim, do you give yourself time at time to unwind before trying to sleep. Stuff like that is also very important. For instance, it has been shown that doing things late at night that keep your mind active will interfere with quality of sleep. Doing such things as your checkbook, taxes, bills, arguing, talking on the phone, action movies and the like are things that shouldn't be done at least 2 hours before bedtime.
Just adding some stuff here and I answered your other question as well. I hope you find something that works for you and that you can stick with.
You know, it's worth a try. Different people respond differently to various medications and supplements. Everyone has a different genetic make-up. I thought that SAMe was an antidepressant more than for anxiety and stress. There are other supplements used for anxiety and stress also. My 'bible' is swanson vitamins.com, which has a very long encyclopedic research area about all the supplements. I would try there. they are also standardized, and very reasonably priced, and also natural.
