In brief: A natural compound

Sam-e is a naturally occurring molecule found throughout the body.
It contributes to the synthesis, activation and/or metabolism of hormones, neurotransmitters, nucleic acids, proteins, phospholipids, and some drugs. The mechanism for the antidepressant effect is unknown, but same is associated with some of the same biochemical effects found with antidepressants. It can help with joint pain too.
