Supplement effectively enhances
mood, says a U.S. government report.
Report adds new data to existing pool
of U.S. and European research.
“MoodPlus will give you your punch again.” Life wasn’t always promising
for Debbie Bonick. Her moods were sometimes quite low, and other things
she tried felt like they were clouding her mind. Then she found out about
SAM-e, a nonprescription dietary supplement sold under the name Nature
“MoodPlus only took a week* for me. I was just really surprised that it
worked as quickly as it did. It was like the world opened up to me.”
Debbie isn’t the only one who has discovered the benefits of Nature Made
MoodPlus SAM-e. In a report recently released by the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services, SAM-e (pronounced “Sammy”) was found to be
an effective mood enhancer. 1
“This is a very important report because it has been commissioned by
the U.S. government,” said researcher and neuropharmacologist Teodoro
Bottiglieri of Baylor University’s Institute for Metabolic Diseases, co-author
of Stop Depression Now. “This report has not been commissioned by an
individual company or pharmaceutical interest. It’s totally unbiased.”

To enhance mood, doctors recommend taking a SAM-e supplement such as
Nature Made MoodPlus, which is the same pharmaceutical grade SAM-e
available and administered for over 20 years by doctors in Europe.
“We all go through life with fluctuations in mood,” said Michael Jacobs, MD.
“Nature Made Mood Plus SAM-e offers the benefits of a safe and effective
means to enhance one’s sense of well-being.” Patients describe a calmness
or peacefulness when using MoodPlus, said Dr. Jacobs.

What is MoodPlus SAM-e?
• Works fast: In clinical studies, some people reported their mood improved
in as little as one week, although results may vary.
• Few side effects: Side effects of SAM-e are comparable to those of a
placebo. Some other options are reported to be associated with damage to
the digestive tract, weight gain and sexual dysfunction.
• No known drug interactions—Numerous scientific studies of SAM-e
have not indicated interaction with drugs or other supplements. The proven
effectiveness and safety of SAM-e are why it has been popular in Europe
for decades and why it has been such a successful product in the United
States since 1999.
SAM-e is a natural substance that exists throughout the body—it’s not
a prescription drug or herb. However, the body’s level of SAM-e can be
depleted because of poor diet and other health conditions. People who are
feeling especially blue have been found to have lower levels of SAM-e.
