Seeking Health Histamine Block
Key Benefits and Actions*
- May help support digestion of food-derived histamine in the digestive tract
- Enhances the presence of diamine oxidase (enzyme) in the digestive tract
- Patented material with optimized stability
- May help support normal inflammatory responses in the digestive tract
Histamine Block is now packaged in a moisture-controlled, desiccated bottle for enhanced product stability and potency. This new packaging delivers unparalleled protection for products that are sensitive to outside moisture. A desiccant sleeve surrounds the product creating an impenetrable barrier, contributing to greater product stability over time. Research has shown this container system to be more effective than standard bottles containing desiccants or even blister packs.
Histamine Block by Seeking Health contains a patented enzyme formula providing 10,000 HDU of diamine oxidase (DAO) - the main enzyme responsible for the degradation of ingested histamine - per capsule. Histamine is known as a biogenic amine, an organic nitrogen compound, involved in certain immune responses and found in mast cells. It may be involved in regulating healthy function in the GI tract as well as the nervous system. Histamine also plays an important role in triggering the body’s normal inflammatory response.
An excess of histamine can be problematic, however, leading to histamine sensitivity/intolerance, digestive concerns, allergies, and more. Individual sensitivity to histamine varies, and some individuals may be more reactive to histamines and other biogenic amines in foods. Diamine oxidase (DAO) has been clinically tested and found to break down food-derived histamine in the digestive tract. Note that DAO is not absorbed and does not have systemic activity. Histamine Block does not manage or address antibody-related or IgE-related food allergies.*

To help maintain your body's natural first line of defense against ingested histamine - your gut
Take 1 capsule no more than 15 minutes before the consumption of histamine-rich foods, or take as directed by your healthcare professional.
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. This product contains an ingredient derived from porcine (pig). Avoid if allergic to pork or any other ingredient. Histamine Block is NOT EFFECTIVE for symptoms of immune-related food allergies, such as peanuts, shellfish, etc., or for gluten intolerance due to sensitivity or celiac disease. DAO is not absorbed and does not have systemic activity. Histamine Block does not manage or address antibody-related or IgE-related food allergies.
1. Who is Histamine Block intended for?
Histamine Block is intended for those who experience sensitivity to histamine due to intake of excess histamine from non-allergenic food sources.
Excess histamine can be problematic, resulting in sensitivity or intolerance, digestive concerns, allergies, and more. DAO is clinically tested to break down food-derived histamine in the digestive tract, making it easier to tolerate histamine-rich foods. Histamine block does not reduce reaction to true allergies or IgE immune-driven responses.*
The purpose of Histamine Block is to break down histamine in foods with high histamine content (does not reduce reaction to allergies or IgE immune-driven responses). For additional defense against ingested histamines, try ProBiota HistaminX.*
Always talk to your doctor before considering the use of this product, especially if you have health conditions or diseases that need to be addressed or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
2. How do I take Histamine Block?
Take 1 to 2 capsules no more than 15 minutes before the consumption of histamine-rich foods or drinks, or as directed by your healthcare provider. Do not take Histamine Block and knowingly eat foods you are allergic to—it will not prevent allergic reactions.
