Commitment with excellence and innovation

The commitment of our scientists with excellence and innovation is essential to the discovery and development of new nutraceuticals and functional foods that are safe and effective for dietary management of diseases and physiological disorders.

We focus our therapeutic orientation in:

  • migraine and other vascular headaches
  • fibromyalgia, generalized muscle pain
  • gastrointestinal disorders, dysbiosis, irritable bowel syndrome, cyclic vomiting syndrome

  • Products of clinical diagnosis of the activity of the intestinal enzyme diamine oxidase.
  • Diamine Oxidase enzyme production of animal, plant and biotechnology origins.
  • Nutraceuticals and functional foods for dietary management of symptoms and chronic pathologies associated with the DAO deficiency.

DR Healthcare subscribe agreements with universities and scientific societies

DR Healthcare scientists play a key role in all phases of the research and development process, from the start of a new program of research to the sanitary registration of a new nutraceutical product.

Our team works using the most advanced technologies to meet the underlying mechanisms of each pathology associated with the DAO deficiency. This knowledge is applied in the identification, design and testing of new nutraceutical products with therapeutic potential and new diagnostic clinical tests.
