What is Histamine?
Your body has a natural production of histamine – and this natural inflammatory compound normally serves many useful functions. However, too much histamine in your system creates an imbalance with a number of uncomfortable symptoms:
- your skin flushes
- your eyes water
- your nose erupts
- your stomach feels uncomfortable
These symptoms can often be mistaken as an allergic or inflammatory reaction. Your body has a natural counterbalance to histamine – the DAO enzyme (Diamine Oxidase).
