Naturally Vitamins - Histame Food Intolerance Support - 30 Capsules
Naturally Vitamins Histame Food Intolerance Support is clinically shown to regulate histamine levels in the body that cause food intolerance. Histame is the first dietary supplement in the United States with the pro-histamine Diamine Oxidase (DAO).
Histame naturally helps discomfort from:
- Processed/Smoked Fish
- Aged Cheese
What is food intolerance?
Countless numbers of people suffer from food sensitivity and intolerance - often without being aware of it. Effects can range from common digestive system problems including abdominal pain and spasms, diarrhea, constipation, and flatulence, to headaches, to skin rash and eczema - all due to the body's inability to thoroughly digest food caused by the lack of proper amounts of certain enzymes.
Many food intolerances are confused with food allergies and are caused by elevated levels of histamine in food. These elevated histamine levels can make eating foods, such as pizza, fish, wine, beer, and many other foods a miserable experience. Until now, one of the only options was to avoid these histamine-containing foods.
Histame is the first product worldwide that decreases histamine levels that cause food intolerance by replenishing the body's digestive enzyme Diamine Oxidase (DAO). This clinically shown dietary supplement regulates histamine levels in the body, unlike antihistamines, which only block the histamine.
Food Intolerance versus Food Allergy
It is important to recognize the difference between food intolerance and food allergy. Non-allergenic histamine food intolerance is mostly brought on by foods not processed properly in the intestinal tract.
Food intolerance is a digestive system response to the inability to digest particular ingredients in food that does not involve the immune system. In contrast, a food allergy is an abnormal response to food triggered by the body’s immune system.
Reactions to histamine found in foods are not food allergies, though the symptoms can look and feel the same. Furthermore, the severity of the food intolerance symptoms is dependent on the ingested amounts of histamine-rich food.
IMPORTANT: Allergic reactions can cause serious illness and, in some cases, death. If you have a food allergy, it is extremely important that you work with your health care provider to find out what food(s) cause your allergic reactions.
A biogenic component often found is processed foods, histamine is an amine (nitrogen) derived from the decarboxylation of the amino acid histidine. In the digestive tract (GI), Diamine Oxidase (DAO) breaks down histamine. Histamine can mimic the discomforts commonly caused by immune system-based food allergies.
Other common types of food intolerance:
- Food poisoning
- Lactose intolerance
- Gluten and nut intolerance
- Carbohydrate intolerance
Effects of Food Intolerance
Individuals who suffer from food intolerance often experience one or more symptoms. The symptoms may vary significantly in terms of severity and frequency.
- Minor abdominal cramps, spasms
- Occasional fatigue
- Skin rash, eczema
- Digestive system problems
- Running nose/ watering eyes
- Occasional constipation
Histamine levels will vary based on the maturation process and the degree of freshness. The longer food is stored or left to mature, the greater its histamine content and the more problematic it can be for individuals with food sensitivities and intolerance.
Fresh meat contains no or very little histamine. However, when meat is processed further, the maturation process results in the accumulation of biogenic amines.
The same is true for fish. Fresh fish contains no or very little histamine. However, fish spoils very easily and this leads to a rapid accumulation of histamine due to bacteria. Further processing, which includes salting, smoke-drying, marinating and preservation, may increase the histamine content.
Examples of foods/substances that may increase histamine levels resulting in symptoms including digestive problems, headaches and skin rashes are:
- Alcohol, particularly red wine and champagne. Also white wine and beer.
- Aged, smoked, canned fish and fish sauces. Tuna fish, mackerel, sardines, anchovy, herring, catfish, salmon.
Smoked and processed meats such as salami, ham, bratwurst and bacon
- Certain vegetables: tomato, spinach, eggplant, avocado, mushrooms and canned vegetables as well as commercially prepared salads
- Certain fruits: strawberries, bananas, papayas, kiwi, pineapple, mango, tangerines, grapefruits, red prunes, peas
- Red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar
- Soy sauce
- Sunflower seeds
- Coffee, black tea
- Some fruits: citrus, bananas, strawberries, red prunes, pears, kiwi, raspberries, papaya
- Bread and confectionery made with yeast
- Peanuts, cashews, walnuts
Drugs/Substances that may block intestinal DAO
- N-Acetyl Cysteine
- Amino guanidine
How to use Histame
Hundreds of thousands of Europeans have already been helped with the Diamine Oxidase ingredient in Histame. Already available and sought after throughout Europe, Naturally Vitamins’ new dietary ingredient (NDI), the Diamine Oxidase (DAO) enzyme, was acknowledged by the Food and Drug Administration in 2008. This breakthrough achievement offers hope to millions of Americans who suffer from histamine food intolerance.
Histame naturally helps discomforts caused by food intolerance
Histame is for people whose doctors have decided that their discomfort is caused by intestinal food intolerance, a non-immune system-based occurrence. Histame is the first product worldwide that regulates histamine levels that can cause food intolerance by replenishing the body’s digestive enzyme DAO.
Histamine is a widely distributed biogenic amine, found in many foods. DAO, the intestinal tract histamine-degrading enzyme, breaks down ingested histamine, thus helping to lower overall histamine levels. A deficiency of DAO can cause an increase histamine exposure inside the body, which may result in symptoms of histamine food intolerance including digestive problems. This dietary supplement is clinically shown to regulate the histamine levels in the body (lower intestine) unlike antihistamines which only block the histamine.
Who should take Histame
This product is for children (5 years and older), teenagers and adults consuming foods rich in histamine. Histame is not intended for those who have immune system-related food allergies.
Warnings and when to ask a health care professional
Histame is not effective with immune system-based food allergies, or with peanut or wheat gluten allergies. Ask a health care professional before use, or if you are taking antihistamines. Keep out of reach of children. Stop use and ask a health care professional if your food intolerance symptoms continue or worsen. Check with your doctor if you are pregnant or nursing.
