DAOfood® Plus is a food for special medical uses that is used in the dietary treatment of Diamine Oxidase enzyme (DAO) deficiency when the predominant symptoms are digestive disorders as constipation, diarrhea, abdominal bloating, heavy digestions, heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome and cyclic vomiting syndrome, also dermatological disorders as atopic and dry skin, or for the dietary treatment of generalized muscular pain.
The Diamine Oxidase (DAO) content in DAOfood® Plus serves as a supplement to the enzyme found in the body, which is in charge of metabolizing histamine. Taking one capsule of DAOfood® Plus before each meal increases the amount of DAO in the small intestine and therefore also boosts histamine degradation. This accelerates the processing of the histamine found in different foods, histamine being the trigger of migraine symptoms.
How should DAOfood® Plus be used?
Take 1 capsule with a small glass of water twenty to thirty minutes before meals. The content of the capsule should not be chewed and the tablet should be swallowed whole. If you cannot swallow it whole, you can open it and ingest its content with liquid, without chewing.
What size packets does DAOfood® Plus come in?
DAOfood® Plus is available in packets containing 60 gastro-resistant capsules with pellets.
DAOfood® Plus cannot replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, nor can it serve as the sole nutritional source. Alcohol and drugs can greatly inhibit the action of the Diamine Oxidase enzyme (DAO). Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place.
What does DAOfood® Plus do?
Histamine is a vital molecule found in all foods in our daily diet and mediates many biological processes such as inflammation, gastric acid secretion, neuromodulation and regulation of the immune function.
Under normal circumstances, ingested histamine is degraded by the Diamine Oxidase enzyme (DAO) in the small intestine.
If the DAO enzyme is reduced, the ingested histamine cannot be degraded and trespasses the intestinal mucosa into the blood stream, causing the onset of the symptoms.
DAOfood® Plus provides the necessary exogenous ingestion of DAO to re-establish the metabolism of histamine, preventing the onset of the symptoms.
