1. Who is Probiota HistaminX intended for?
Probiota HistaminX contains probiotic species and strains that have been carefully selected to exclude those that are known to increase histamine in the gut. The histamine-friendly species included in this formula are delivered in a delayed release (acid resistant) capsule to help ensure that the probiotics are delivered intact to the lower digestive tract. This formula helps to support the body’s microbiome and healthy digestion, and may help support healthy metabolism of ingested histamine.*
Histamine, a part of the body’s biological defense system, is also found in many common dietary sources: fermented foods, fish, meat, cheese, vinegar, alcohol, and some fruits and vegetables. Other foods contain histidine, which is converted to histamine during digestion by certain bacteria in the gut. At appropriate levels and in the right places, histamine is needed for a normal digestive process and sleep-wake cycle, and for a healthy immune system. On the other hand, too much histamine can cause unpleasant side effects like rashes, itching, stuffy nose, swelling, headache, and gastrointestinal complaints.*
Each person’s level of sensitivity to histamine in foods depends on the amount of histamine present and the effectiveness of the body’s natural breakdown mechanisms. It may seem like the only way to avoid the unpleasant side effects of histamine sensitivity is to eliminate high-histamine foods altogether—but such a restricted diet can deprive the body of balanced nutrition and make it difficult to enjoy meals. A healthy gut is a key factor in normal histamine metabolism and healthy histamine levels throughout the body.*
This product is for individuals who wish to support healthy histamine levels while also supporting good gut health. ProBiota HistaminX contains only probiotic species that are considered “histamine-friendly” and excludes those known to produce histamine in the gut.*
For those who prefer a broad-spectrum probiotic, try Probiota 12.
