Red Wine Allergy: Symptoms, Testing, and Treatment

Red Wine Allergy

Red Wine Allergy Symptoms

Are you experiencing any of the following red wine allergy symptoms?

  • Blushing
  • Sneezing
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Watery Eyes
  • Congestion
  • Headache

Umbrellux™ DAO Supplement Can Help!

If you suffer any of these temporary but often embarrassing symptoms after a glass or two of red wine, you're not alone.

Many alcoholic beverages - especially red wine - cause trouble for many people.

And contrary to popular belief, it's not the sulfites. Well, not really...

Red wine - and to a lesser extent, sparkling wine, white wine and beer - actually contains histamine, the inflammatory compound at the heart of many allergic reactions.

You might even think you're allergic to the stuff. But if you flush, sneeze, itch or tear up when you drink red wine, it's likely not an allergy - it's a natural reaction to excess histamine.

Umbrellux™ DAO supplement provides the enzyme your body needs to combat the excess histamine found in wine and other foods and beverages. Just as those who are lactose intolerant can find relief with a lactase enzyme supplement, those sensitive to dietary histamine can benefit by taking DAO (diamine oxidase).

Allergic Reaction to Sulfites in Red Wine

And about those sulfites...

Studies have shown no causative link between sulfites in wine and headaches (or other reactions).

As reported by Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain:

“Sulfites were once linked to headache after wine ingestion. However, most of this belief is either speculative or in fact wrong, since the food and wine preservative sulfur dioxide (SO2), called generically sulfite, although present in wines, is much more existent in common foods that do not trigger headache attacks, such as dried fruit… Moreover, recently produced organic wines contain lower levels of sulfites or, indeed, have none at all, but the persistence of the headache triggering potential remains. In addition, published literature has not yet established any links between the presence of sulfite and headache.”

Sulfites do, however, trigger the release of histamine from mast cells within the gut. Plus, alcohol in any form blocks the action of DAO.

Thus, red wine presents a triple threat for those sensitive to histamine:

  1. It delivers histamine directly
  2. It triggers release of histamine
  3. It blocks the action of the enzyme (diamine oxidase) necessary to degrade it.

The answer is Umbrellux™ DAO Supplement

Just one to two capsules of Umbrellux™ DAO taken before consumption of red wine or other histamine-containing foods and drinks, can effectively stop histamine reactions before they start.

Try Umbrellux™ DAO yourself and find out if your red wine reaction is really a histamine sensitivity.

Order a simple Self-Evaluation Kit with a guide to histamine trigger foods and 10 capsules of DAO for just $9.99 (plus shipping and handling).

Once you know, you'll find that enjoying red wine can be as easy as taking a little DAO!
