I spied this in the Allergy UK newsletter and thought it might be useful for some of you:
For a limited period only, Sciotec, the manufacturers of Daosin are supplying free samples to anyone who would like to try the product.
Update: this is now out of date, sorry, but I have left the post up because it contains some useful info on DAOsin itself!
Go and have a peek. Note: this is not TGF safe as it contains corn and rice-derived ingredients but is traditional gluten free from what I can tell. here are the ingredients, sent in by one of you who sent for some…
Stabilizer: microcristalline cellulose, Capsule: Hydroxypropymethyl-cellulose, Stabilizer: Sucrose, Vitamin: Ascorbic Acid, Stabilizer: rice Starch, Enteric Coat: Shellack, stabilizer: Hydroxypropylcellouse, pig kidney protein extract with 7% diamine oxidase (DAO) Thickener: polyvinlpolyyrrolidone, Seperator: Talc, Thickener: Acetylated starch, Thickener; Carboxymethylcellulose, colour: Titanium Dioxide, moisturizer: Glycerol
Here’s some info on histamine intolerance and DAO enzymes from Allergy UK:
What is histamine intolerance?
Put simply this is an imbalance of histamine and the enzyme DAO, Diamine Oxydase (sic) in the body. For someone with histamine Intolerance, this deficiency means that they are unable to break down ingested histamine quickly enough.
The consequence Ingested histamine is broken down significantly slower and accumulates within the body. The body then reacts to the accumulated histamine with similar symptoms as for allergies, for example, with rashes, itching, headaches, diarrhoea and vomiting or abdominal pain. It is important to know however that this does not point to an allergy, but to intolerance.
What is Daosin?
DAOSiN is the only dietary food in the world that treats food intolerances based on intolerance to histamine. It was specially developed for people with low levels of DAO, Diamine Oxydase but does not however replace a balanced diet or healthy lifestyle. DAOSiN contains DAO, which is responsible for breaking down histamine and supplements the natural occurrence of this enzyme in the body. By taking DAOSiN capsules before mealtimes, the amount of DAO in the small intestine is increased preparing the body for to breakdown of histamine. DAOSiN facilitates the processing of irritating histamine from food in the digestive tract and re-establishes the natural balance of histamine levels in the body. DAOSiN can reduce the occurrence of the above-mentioned reactions to histamine where intolerance to histamine is present.
How do you know if you have a lack of DAO enzyme? This simple test for histamine DAO.
