I have some SAMe (Safeway brand, blister-seal packs) that got exposed to high temperature last summer when they were accidentally stored in a garage. I moved them inside after summer, but they were not refrigerated, just at room temperature. They have not passed their expiration date, but are they going to still be safe or effective to take? (They are a light beige color, and I can't remember if they are normally look like that.) Should I just throw them out?

Thanks.

According to Life Extension's Product Development Department:

Unfortunately, we cannot comment on the stability of another company's product. SAMe is an extremely delicate material that must be processed and handled carefully, as it is extremely hygroscopic and therefore sensitive to the effects of high heat and humidity.

A cool, dry and dark place is ideal for most.  Oil-based products might be better kept in the refrigerator.
