Supplements to Help with Histamine Intolerance- Histamine Support Pack

Histamine intolerance occurs when there is a buildup of histamine in the body. Drugs, medical conditions, the environment, nutritional deficiencies, and diet can lead to histamine intolerance.

Factors that lead to histamine intolerance cause the following:

  • An increase in how much histamine a person’s digestion releases.
  • A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of diamine oxidase, or DAO, the primary enzyme that breaks down ingested histamine.
  • A decrease in the effectiveness or abundance of histamine-N-methyltransferase, or HNMT, an enzyme that helps break down histamine within cells.

Common factors that interfere with DAO and HMNT levels include many prescription drugs, for example:

  • airway medications, such as theophylline
  • heart medications
  • antibiotics
  • antidepressants
  • antipsychotics
  • diuretics
  • muscle relaxants
  • pain medications
  • gastrointestinal medicines
  • nausea and gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD
  • malaria drugs
  • tuberculosis medications

The list also includes over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and painkillers, such as:

  • acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin)
  • indomethacin (Indocin)
  • diclofenac (Voltaren)
  • naproxen

Other influencing factors include:

  • alcohol
  • intestinal conditions or injuries that compromise the gut lining and affect digestion
  • liver conditions
  • vitamin B-6, vitamin C, copper, or zinc deficiencies
  • extreme or chronic stress
  • low oxygen states
  • injury or trauma
  • temperature extremes
