There’s nothing quite like a slice of pizza (or an entire pie – who’s counting calories)?
Unfortunately, those battling histamine intolerance can experience unwanted side effects after enjoying that cheesy-goodness.
Yes, numerous ingredients in pizza are either high in histamine or are well known histamine liberators (they trigger the release of histamine).
Pizza Ingredients High in Histamine:
Pizza Ingredients known as Histamine Liberators:
When the body receives histamine from eating a slice of pizza, the enzyme diamine oxidase (DAO) from the small intestine is supposed to break down the biochemical.
Those with histamine intolerance lack enough DAO to deal with the heightened histamine levels. The result of this DAO deficiency is a build-up of histamine that can result in symptoms like headaches, watery eyes, rashes, and heartburn.
If you are unsure if pizza is causing your symptoms, keep a food journal to record when your symptoms occur.
There are plenty of histamine-free pizza recipes that you can search for on the internet. But you shouldn’t have to sacrifice the pizza taste you enjoy. That’s where Umbrellux DAO comes in.
Umbrellux DAO gives your body the DAO it needs to break down histamine. Just take one capsule 15 minutes before your next slice.
