Histame is it right for you?
Wow I bet when Histame hit the market everyone suffering from histamine intolerance yelled out "hell yea", I can eat pizza, drink wine and generally make a pig out of myself as long as I take these puppies everything will be cool. Or will it?
Histame is manufactured in Europe and is currently out of stock (go figure). If you choose to utilize this product you may want to purchase several bottles at a time as they do run out of stock frequently. I have an order myself on back order at the moment. Histame works by breaking down the histamine in your body and should be taken 15 minutes prior to ingesting a food you know is going to wreak havoc on your body.
Can you eat pizza using histame? Most can, but does that mean eat pizza daily? No. Does it mean eat the ENTIRE pizza? No. A few slices after taking a histame will help most. I must admit there are times when I take my Histame and it doesn't do shit. Then there are times when it does help but then three days later I will swell. So I'm not sure if it COMPLETELY helps in the long term as much as it may for short term usage. It's extremely expensive and when the manufacturer is out any online store that still has some in stock will jack their prices up to over $100 per bottle (sloths, I swear!). If you patiently wait for the manufacturer to make their batches you can find it from $26-$45 per bottle. Quite pricey, considering you only get 30 pills. I treat mine like gold and save them for special meals LOL. Mainly when I want to drink which isn't often. So mine last awhile.
Histame or Diaosin (another brand of the same product) contain DAO, the enzyme we lack or are low in that breaks down histamine. They get this DAO from the kidneys of pigs. Yea pretty gross when you think about it and if you are a vegan good luck on finding anything else to use.
I sometimes feel that these pills aren't that great at least for me because like I already said I still react just on a later date. Sooo it's up to you whether or not you feel the need to pay the high price for this product or not.
I've even contemplated taking one pill per day just for the hell of it just to get a regular "flow" of DAO into my system but haven't yet decided if it would be cost effective, considering all of the other supplements I take and how much they're costing me.
So that's it for now....I've got some pretty cool low histamine recipes coming up so stay tuned!
