Umbrellux DAO - What You Need To Know

September 14, 2017

A little known enzyme, diamine oxidase (DAO) may hold the key to your seemingly unrelated symptoms. If your body doesn't make enough of this enzyme, you may experience food sensitivities, migraines, high blood pressure, tachycardia (rapid heart rate), and anxiety.  

The diamine oxidase (DAO) enzyme is responsible for breaking down histamine molecules. So, if you don’t make enough of this enzyme, your body will end up with too much histamine. High amounts of histamine cause multiple complaints that are usually recognized as “allergy-like” symptoms. Umbrellux DAO enzyme supplements mitigate the symptoms caused by a diamine oxidase enzyme deficiency.

If you experience any of the following symptoms that don’t seem to correlate with seasonal environmental allergies, you may benefit from Umbrellux DAO supplements.

  • Headaches
  • Congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Tight chest
  • Hoarse voice
  • Flushing
  • Hives

If you shop the internet for diamine oxidase supplements, you may end up very confused because some products contain the diamine oxidase enzyme and some do not.

The Apples and Oranges of Histamine

Umbrellux DAO is the only product currently available that contains actual diamine oxidase enzymes (DAO). It is also the most potent diamine oxidase supplement ever manufactured. It contains 10,000 HDUs active enzyme, while other products contain 5,000 HDU or even less.  

Some competing products don't even contain diamine oxidase at all. The competing products contain herbs known to reduce blood histamine levels. Umbrellux works in the gut to stop the release of histamine in foods, so the histamine never even reaches your bloodstream.

Herbal based products such as Histame and Histamine Blend are better suited to dealing with high blood histamine levels caused by seasonal environmental allergies, while Umbrellux neutralizes histamine released from certain foods.

So comparing Umbrellux DAO enzyme supplements to these herbal products is like comparing apples to oranges. They are completely different supplements which are used for different issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When should I take it?

A: It is best taken 20 minutes before a meal. It only assists foods that are being digested in the gut. If you take it prior to eating, you are ensuring that the DAO enzyme has reached the gut before any food arrives.

Q: Can Umbrellux DAO increase my overall body levels of diamine oxidase (DAO)?  

A: Unfortunately, the answer is no. All diamine oxidase supplements, including Umbrellux work locally in the gut. The enzymes act on the food that you eat and are not absorbed into the bloodstream.

Q: Will Umbrellux DAO enzyme supplements help with my seasonal environmental allergies?

A: No, not directly. An herbal formula, such as Orthomolecular D-Hist, will better address the histamine released due to environmental seasonal allergies. With that being said, using Umbrellux to control the amount of histamine released in your gut, will cause an overall decrease of your histamine load, and consequently your seasonal environmental allergy symptoms.

    Q: Will taking Umbrellux DAO cure my histamine intolerance?

    A: Histamine intolerance is the name for the symptoms you experience when you have too much histamine in your body. Using Umbrellux DAO enzyme supplements will help to decrease your symptoms, but will not cure the underlying reason that your body isn’t making enough DAO enzyme. There are various causes for DAO deficiency.

    Q: What can I eat if I am trying to avoid histamine-rich foods to stay on a low-histamine diet?

    A: Fresh protein and meat products. Fresh salmon has very little histamine whereas canned salmon has a significant amount of histamine. Avoid sausage and aged meats.

    Fresh vegetables and fruits instead of dried or canned. Sauerkraut has many notable health benefits, but if you suspect a histamine problem, then avoid it and other fermented foods.

    Raw organic pastured cream and fresh cheeses are low in histamine especially compared to fermented dairy such as kefir, yogurt, and sour cream.

    Umbrellux DAO enzyme supplement can be the missing piece of the puzzle for mysterious digestive problems. It is most beneficial when following a low histamine diet, and recognizing similar symptoms that may be caused by seasonal environmental allergies. Histamine is not your enemy. Over-production of histamine IS your enemy. Umbrellux DAO is your first-line defense for histamine created and released by your meal.
