1. Who is Histamine Block intended for?
Histamine Block is intended for those who experience sensitivity to histamine due to intake of excess histamine from non-allergenic food sources.
Excess histamine can be problematic, resulting in sensitivity or intolerance, digestive concerns, allergies, and more. DAO is clinically tested to break down food-derived histamine in the digestive tract, making it easier to tolerate histamine-rich foods. Histamine block does not reduce reaction to true allergies or IgE immune-driven responses.*
The purpose of Histamine Block is to break down histamine in foods with high histamine content (does not reduce reaction to allergies or IgE immune-driven responses). For additional defense against ingested histamines, try ProBiota HistaminX.*
