An option for amine/histamine intolerance available to ship now is Cozidase

Please note the DAO ingredient is of animal orgin
For a vegetarian and vegan option for DAO, please see our Cozidase product

For those that are deficient in the DAO enzyme, which can cause Histamine or Amine Intolerance which includes 'Asian Flush Syndrome'. This product contains the DAO enzyme taken at the time of the meal or drink.

Directions for use: Take 1 tablet just before the histamine containing meal or drink. Use a maximum of 3 tablets per day. Swallow tablet whole.

Each tablet contains: Diamine Oxidase (DAO) enzyme (range of 20,000-30,000 HDU per tablet from pig kidney protein extract) in a small 5mm tablet. Fillers: Microcrystalline cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose. Glazing agent: ethyl cellulose, potato starch. Stabilizers: sodium alginate, magnesium stearate, medium chain fatty acids. Glossing agent: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose. Stabilizers: oleic acid, stearic acid.

Please note this product is not suitable for vegetarians as each tablet contains 4.2 mg pork kidney protein extract which contains the 20,000-30,00 HDU DAO enzyme.  

How can you say that DAOfood contains 20,000 - 30,000 HDU per capsule or tablet, but the number of mg of pork kidney extract is always the same?

We can imagine that this may seem confusing! With enzymes, however, the number of mg does not say much about the effectiveness/strength of the enzyme. The exact number of HDU can differ per batch. Diamine Oxidase is a very difficult enzyme, which means that the same efficacy cannot be achieved every time per batch.
