Umbrellux™ DAO is indicated for those with intolerance to dietary histamine or histamine sensitivity.
Umbrellux™ DAO is the original diamine oxidase (DAO) supplement brand in the US. DAO is the primary enzyme responsible for the breakdown of histamine in the digestive tract. Umbrellux™ DAO is indicated for those with intolerance to dietary histamine, histamine sensitivity, and occasional digestive distress related to histamine-containing foods and beverages.
Umbrellux™ DAO delivers naturally derived diamine oxidase to the small intestine, where it acts directly on dietary histamine to defend against histamine-related reactions and digestive discomfort.

Histamine Intolerance is Real - Umbrellux DAO supplement can help.
Many foods and beverages contain histamine. Some trigger the release of histamine in the gut. Individuals who are sensitive or intolerant to dietary histamine react in a number of ways, from digestive disturbances to sneezing and congestion, red/watery eyes, flushed skin, even hives and headache.
Symptoms of Histamine Intolerance
Histamine Intolerance Symptoms
You've been there. Chatting at a party or picnic while sampling every delectable treat in the generous spread, when suddenly you're sidetracked by a sinus-shattering sneeze. Then another. And another. Next thing you know you have to put down your plate and excuse yourself - your itchy, swollen nose and fuzzy-feeling brain, that is.
What's causing your discomfort? Histamine has prompted an allergic response.
DAO Enzyme-Inhibiting Drugs
Histamine is a biochemical that sends red flag messages to your immune system, notifying your white blood cells to rally up against potential attackers that may be infecting your tissues.
Many common, tasty, nutritious foods contain histamine. And there are just as many foods that trigger the release of histamine and allergic reaction in your body.
Normally, your small intestine would come to the rescue. Its stocked with the powerful enzyme diamine oxidase (DAO) which breaks down and helps eliminate histamine to maintain your biochemical balance (and prevent uncomfortable reactions). However, when your DAO enzyme levels are low, or it's activity is blocked so it can't effectively combat excess histamine, you may find yourself fighting a histamine overload.
Why would your body act up like that?
A number of things can influence your DAO levels and activity. Some people are genetically predisposed to DAO deficiency. Evidence also suggests that both DAO levels and activity decline with age. Certain foods - especially alcoholic beverages and fermented or aged foods - are high in histamine and can stress an otherwise balanced environment. And finally, many common medications - both over-the-counter and prescription - can block DAO activity.
According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, approximately 1% of Americans have a histamine intolerance, and 80% of them are middle-aged. The prevalence of this imbalance has been inspiring research for decades.
Some of that research has led to the development of Umbrellux® DAO, a naturally-derived enzyme supplement that replenishes your DAO levels - so you don't have to give up the foods you love.
In addition to the common skin flushing, histamine rash, runny, stuffy or sneezy nose, watery eyes and churning gut, symptoms of enzyme imbalance vary. Because histamine also influences neurotransmitters, DAO deficient or histamine intolerant people may also experience:
If any of these tend to strike after you eat certain high histamine foods, you may have a histamine intolerance or DAO deficiency.
