Diamine Oxidase is an enzyme produced by the lining of your digestive tract to help control the amount of histamine that gets absorbed in your body. Diamine Oxidase is also known as DAO for short.
Histamine is a compound that is involved in digestion and supports the nervous system and the immune system. When histamine levels get too high, it can disrupt all three of these systems.
The DAO in our formula is an easy-to-swallow, high-potency gastro-resistant mini-tablet, which is essential for releasing DAO in the small intestine, where it breaks down both foods and histamine produced by SIBO bacteria.
Anytime you eat anything with more histamine than your body can neutralize, it will get absorbed into your body leading to excess histamine. When this excess histamine is absorbed, it can cause issues like abdominal pain, cramps, diarrhea, constipation, and can also cause brain fog, fatigue, anxiety, and even migraines.
Some of the more common foods that have a high histamine are avocados, spinach, fermented foods, cheese, alcohol, and smoked meats, just to name a few.
There are many medications which decrease DAO: aspirin, ibuprofen, blood pressure medications, and anti-depressants. When you combine Atrantil with a high-quality DAO, like the one we are using, it makes a huge difference in what you can eat, and significantly reduces the effects of too much histamine.
