Jarrow Formulas Announces Passing ConsumerLab.com's Independent Testing of SAMe Products

LOS ANGELES — November 28, 2011 — Jarrow Formulas®, a formulator and supplier of superior nutritional supplements, announces the successful results of ConsumerLab.com®’s independent testing of its entire line of SAMe products; Jarrow Formulas met all the selected quality criteria of the comprehensive review.

The independent evaluation tested eight leading SAMe products to determine the accuracy of label claims.  All products were also tested to ensure proper disintegration (how they "break-apart") in the body. The evaluations yielded positive results, as Jarrow Formulas’ SAMe was found to contain the claimed amount of the SAMe key ingredient as well as proper disintegration of the tablet.

“ConsumerLab.com’s mission is to identify the best quality health and nutritional products through independent testing,” says Rory Lipsky, Jarrow Formulas Marketing Director.  “Needless to say, we’re pleased with the results of their lab tests

Jarrow Formulas’ SAMe is an amino acid derivative clinically proven to benefit brain, liver and joint function.*  Found in all living cells, SAMe is called “activated methionine” and is formed by the combination of ATP and methionine.  Improper handling of SAMe during the manufacturing process can cause degradation in just a matter of hours, as SAMe products degrade rapidly under high heat or humidity.  Thus, the manufacturing process for Jarrow Formulas SAMe is done under conditions of low temperature and low humidity, and the tablet is enteric coated and blister-packed to ensure product efficacy.

Jarrow Formulas’ entire line of SAMe products are available at fine health shops and vitamin stores nationwide.  For more information, please visit www.jarrow.com.
