S-adenosylmethionine is said to have a calming effect on the mind and brain and may be effective in treating depression, osteoarthritis, cholestasis and liver disease.
Originally a component produced in the liver in the human organism and synthesised from methionine, it is actually found in high amounts in sake lees.
As liver disease and depression show low levels of this S-adenosylmethionine, it has attracted attention as a possible improvement by producing it in the body or by taking it from sake lees.
Functionally proven to be a platelet inhibitory factor, this supplement is also available in the USA, but the evidence is said to be insufficient in Japan and is basically used under the guidance of a doctor.
Sake cake is arguably the only food source of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) other than prescription drugs and supplements.
