Key Benefits and Actions*

  • May help support digestion of food-derived histamine in the digestive tract
  • Enhances the presence of diamine oxidase (enzyme) in the digestive tract
  • Patented material with optimized stability
  • May help support normal inflammatory responses in the digestive tract


Histamine Digest by Seeking Health contains a patented enzyme formula providing 10,000 HDU of diamine oxidase (DAO) - the main enzyme responsible for the degradation of ingested histamine - per capsule. Histamine is known as a biogenic amine, an organic nitrogen compound, involved in certain immune responses and found in mast cells. It may be involved in regulating healthy function in the GI tract as well as the nervous system. Histamine also plays an important role in triggering the body's normal inflammatory response. An excess of histamine can be problematic, however, leading to histamine sensitivity/intolerance, digestive concerns, allergies and more. Individual sensitivity to histamine varies, and some individuals may be more reactive to histamines and other biogenic amines in foods. Diamine oxidase (DAO) has been clinically tested and found to break down food-derived histamine in the digestive tract. DAO is not absorbed and does not have systemic activity. Histamine Digest does not manage or address antibody-related or IgE-related food allergies.*  

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule, as needed, just prior to consuming high histamine foods or drinks. Or, take away from food if wanting to support healthy histamine levels in the digestive tract. Use as directed by your healthcare professional.

Do not take Histamine Block and knowingly eat foods you are allergic to - it will not prevent allergic reactions.

Warnings

Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. This product contains an ingredient derived from porcine (pig). Avoid if allergic to pork or any other ingredient. Histamine Block is NOT EFFECTIVE for symptoms of immune-related food allergies, such as peanuts, shellfish, etc., or for gluten intolerance due to sensitivity or celiac disease. DAO is not absorbed and does not have systemic activity. Histamine Block does not manage or address antibody-related or IgE-related food allergies.

Storage

Keep tightly closed in a cool, dry place out of reach by children.

KEY INGREDIENTS IN HISTAMINE DIGEST

  • DAOgest® (Diamine oxidase): This patented enzyme supports the healthy breakdown of histamine in many areas of your body - especially the small intestine, colon, placenta, kidney, appendix, testis and prostate.

WHY HISTAMINE DIGEST WORKS

You have a gene called DAO. This gene makes an enzyme that digests histamine.

Your DAO enzyme is found in various parts of your body in order to maintain healthy levels of histamine.

The problem is many people, and possibly you, do not have a DAO enzyme working very well for a variety of reasons.

This is why you may need Histamine Digest.

Histamine Digest provides you with the patented, lab tested and pure DAO enzyme called DAOgest®.

After you take a small capsule of Histamine Digest, the capsule breaks open and releases its contents of the DAO enzyme in your small intestine. The released DAO enzyme immediately starts digesting histamine for you so your body doesn’t have to.

Histamine Digest works on digesting histamine from these main sources of histamine:

  1. Food and drink
  2. Your gut’s immune system
  3. Your microbiome

By using Histamine Digest, you’ll once again support healthy levels of the DAO enzyme. By doing so, you may notice fewer symptoms of histamine intolerance!

HOW TO USE HISTAMINE DIGEST

When taken with meals, Histamine Digest helps break down histamine found in foods and drinks. Histamine will be at a healthy level which helps eliminate feelings related to histamine intolerance.†‡

When taken on an empty stomach, Histamine Digest helps break down histamine produced from the microbiome or your gut’s immune system. 

This is a great idea to try: Take 1 capsule of Histamine Digest on an empty stomach to see if you feel better within 30 minutes.

Why would this be useful? High amounts of histamine are produced by an unhealthy microbiome, or an overactive gut immune system.

If you feel better, continue using Histamine Digest on an empty stomach as needed. Histamine Digest supports a healthy balance of histamine in the gut.

Histamine Digest may support healthy levels of histamine within the small intestine, colon, kidneys, uterus, appendix, placenta, prostate, or testicles. This is very important as unhealthy levels of histamine within these areas contribute to problems locally or throughout the body.

Children 4 years of age and older may use Histamine Digest. You may need to open the small capsule and mix in a bite of applesauce if they cannot swallow the small capsule.

Breastfeeding women may use Histamine Digest. Histamine gets absorbed from the gut and into breastmilk. If breastmilk has higher levels of histamine, the breastfeeding baby may experience colic. Infant colic is associated with higher levels of histamine. Support healthy levels of histamine in your breastmilk by taking Histamine Digest.

Pregnant women may use Histamine Digest if approved by their healthcare professional. Occasional nausea and vomiting of pregnancy is associated with high levels of histamine. Levels of histamine in a healthy pregnancy decrease below values found in healthy non-pregnant women. This is because the placenta is designed to produce a lot of the DAO enzyme. However, sometimes the levels of histamine exceed the ability of the placenta’s DAO enzyme to digest histamine.

In some complications of pregnancy, maternal blood histamine levels rise above those associated with a healthy pregnancy. Many of the complications of pregnancy, including preeclampsia, preterm labour, spontaneous abortion and hyperemesis gravidarum, are associated with increased levels of maternal blood histamine. Supporting healthy levels of maternal blood histamine levels during pregnancy, especially during such complications, may be helpful.

SUGGESTED USE

As needed, anytime, take 1 capsule before eating or drinking. Alternatively, as needed, take 1 capsule away from food or drink if wanting to support uterine comfort during the menstrual cycle, occasional nausea from pregnancy or healthy histamine levels in your digestive system. Capsules may be opened and sprinkled on a bite of food. Use as directed by your healthcare professional.

Do not take Histamine Digest and knowingly eat foods you are allergic to—it will not prevent allergic reactions.

WARNINGS

Consult with your healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not use if inner tamper seal is damaged.

DR. LYNCH'S TIPS

Important Note:

Histamine Digest is very effective for providing the DAO enzyme immediately to support your digestive system.

 

Histamine Digest is known as a palliative supplement. It helps you feel great but it doesn't solve the underlying problem. 

Ultimately, you want your body’s DAO enzyme to function well on its own. It takes time to figure out how to heal your gut, restore your microbiome and balance your immune system. Work with a naturopathic physician or integrative health professional to help you work through these areas.

It’s possible to experience relief now. Use Histamine Digest so you can immediately enjoy feeling healthy, instead of struggling, when consuming foods or drinks high in histamine.

Over time, as you work on healing your gut, restoring your healthy microbiome and balancing your immune system, you’ll likely need less Histamine Digest to support healthy histamine metabolism.

Change in bowel frequency may occur from using Histamine Digest.

High amounts of histamine in the gut are associated with loose stools or diarrhea. Low amounts of histamine are associated with constipation. Since Histamine Digest supports healthy histamine levels, if one takes too much, it may contribute to harder to pass stools.

If stools become harder to pass, only use Histamine Digest when eating foods or drinks with histamine.

If you continue having harder to pass stools, then stop using Histamine Digest and consume a histamine-containing drink like kombucha. If you now can pass stools normally again, then you know you may have taken too much Histamine Digest. Adjust your use as needed.

Note that your use of Histamine Digest will reduce as you restore a healthy gut lining and a healthy gut microbiome.

This is why it’s highly recommended to use ProBiota HistaminX each evening after dinner. Probiota HistaminX supports a healthy gut microbiome.
