Supplements to Help with Histamine Intolerance- Histamine Support Pack
Histamine intolerance occurs when there is a buildup of histamine in the body. Drugs, medical conditions, the environment, nutritional deficiencies, and diet can lead to histamine intolerance.
Factors that lead to histamine intolerance cause the following:
- An increase in how much histamine a person’s digestion releases.
- A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of diamine oxidase, or DAO, the primary enzyme that breaks down ingested histamine.
- A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of histamine-N-methyltransferase, or HNMT, an enzyme that helps break down histamine within cells.
Common factors that interfere with DAO and HMNT levels include many prescription drugs, for example:
- airway medications, such as theophylline
- heart medications
- muscle relaxants
- pain medications
- gastrointestinal medicines
- nausea and gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD
- malaria drugs
- tuberculosis medications
The list also includes over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and painkillers, such as:
- acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin)
- indomethacin (Indocin)
- diclofenac (Voltaren)
Other influencing factors include:
- intestinal conditions or injuries that compromise the gut lining and affect digestion
- liver conditions
- vitamin B-6, vitamin C, copper, or zinc deficiencies
- extreme or chronic stress
- low oxygen states
- injury or trauma
- temperature extremes
Natural Supplements to Help with Histamine Intolerance, support DAO enzyme pathways.
HistDAO is a patented enzyme formulation supplying DOA (diamine oxidase). DAO is the primary enzyme responsible in regard to the degradation associated with ingested histamine contained in many foods that we eat.
This particular enzyme has been analyzed clinically and found to break down histamine derived from food within the digestive tract.
DAO isn’t absorbed and doesn’t possess systemic activity.
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS of HistDAO
- Supports the enhancement of the existence of diamine oxidase within the Digestive Tract
- Degrades in a healthy manner the histamine derived from consumed foods
- Supports histamine intolerance*
Suggested Use: Consume 1 to 2 capsules not exceeded by 15 minutes before eating foods rich in histamine, or as instructed by your healthcare professional.
Histamine Intolerance Support #2 Natural D Hist
Natural D-Hist is a targeted blend of flavonoids, antioxidants, proteolytic enzymes and botanicals designed to provide comprehensive support for seasonal challenges caused by common environmental allergens.
Natural D-Hist includes quercetin, a powerful flavonoid, to support healthy histamine levels. Bromelain enhances the absorption of quercetin and supports mucosal tissue health. Stinging nettles leaf balance hyper-immune response and N-acetyl cysteine clear the airways by promoting normal viscosity of mucus.
This powerful combination actively promotes healthy nasal and sinus passages for individuals with elevated histamine and respiratory irritation.
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS of Natural D Hist
- Supports Immune Balance in Hypersensitive Individuals
- Supports Sinus and Respiratory Health
- Promotes Normal Viscosity of MucusClears Nasal Passages
Quercetin is a biologically active flavonoid antioxidant that is widely distributed in plants including oak trees, onions and tea.
Quercetin has strong antioxidant activity and has been shown to support immune health by mediating the release of inflammatory compounds including leukotrienes and prostaglandins.
Quercetin is known for its ability to stabilize mast cells, diminishing the release of histamine, the compound known to cause hypersensitivity reactions during seasonal changes.
Stinging Nettles Leaf†
Urtica dioica, commonly known as stinging nettles, is a plant that has been shown to balance immune response, specifically in the airways and nasal passages.
Studies have shown that the extract of stinging nettles leaf balances a variety of inflammatory activities that affect respiratory health. Stinging nettles leaf controls mast-cell degranulation, prostaglandin formation, and histamine action all contributing to a balanced inflammatory response.
Bromelain is a plant enzyme naturally found on the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant.
Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that aids in in the breakdown of large protein complexes, including antigenic compounds, and has been shown to enhance the absorption of quercetin.
Bromelain has been shown to reduce circulating allergenic protein complexes associated with hyper-immune sensitivity and seasonal discomfort.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid precursor to one of the most important antioxidants in the body, glutathione.
Both glutathione and NAC help reduce the viscosity of the mucus allowing for clearing of the airways and improved respiratory health.
Vitamin C cannot be synthesized by humans and is therefore an essential nutrient that must be consumed in the diet. Among its numerous health-promoting properties, vitamin C is an essential vitamin that supports the immune system and is also a potent antioxidant.
When the body is under a significant amount of stress, both emotional and environmental, vitamin C is excreted rapidly. Vitamin C has many immune boosting properties, but is distinctively beneficial for individuals with seasonal discomfort because of its ability to deactivate histamine
Loading Dose: 2 capsules three times per day for 7-10 days or as recommended by your health care professional.
Maintenance: 2 or more capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
Histamine Intolerance Support #3 Mucosagen
The mucosal epithelium serves multiple purposes including allowing nutrients from the diet to be absorbed and digested while simultaneously serving as a barrier that protects against unwanted food particles, toxins and microorganisms from passing directly into the body. Supporting the gut lining is a key component of addressing Histamine Intolerance
Mucosagen includes a synergistic blend of ingredients that support the health of the GI lining while maintaining normal inflammatory balance and liver detoxification pathways to support overall health.
