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 Block 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 Block does not manage or address antibody-related or IgE-related food allergies.*

As someone with a cold constitution, I usually don't react well to nervines. This blend is the exception! This nervine blend is warming instead of cooling and it helps me relax. I love it and highly recommend it.
This vitamin is easy to swallow. I have been taking it for several weeks and it does not cause me to bloat nor does it upset my stomach. I love that it is vegan & non GMO. It contains what I need on a daily basis.
