DAOkids® is a food for special medical purposes that is used in the pediatric dietary management of digestive disorders, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and skin disorders induced by DAO deficiency.
The Diamine Oxidase (DAO) content in DAOkids® serves as a supplement to the enzyme found in the body, which is in charge of metabolizing histamine. Taking one capsule of DAOkids® 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 DAOkids® 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 capsule 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 DAOkids® come in?
DAOkids® is available in packets 30 and 60 gastro-resistant capsules with pellets.
DAOkids® 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 DAOkids® 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 migraine and other types of headache.
DAOkids® provides the necessary exogenous ingestion of DAO to re-establish the metabolism of histamine, allowing the dietary management of the symptoms.
