Daohead from Dr. Healthcare, Dietary Management of Migraine.
- 87% of patients with diagnosed migraine have a reduced or greatly reduced activity of the DAO enzyme.
- Contains ENZYME DAO (Diamine Oxidase). It also contains vitamins B6, B9 and B12 and caffeine that act as adjuvants in the dietary management of migraine.
- It works by metabolizing the histamine ingested in the diet, preventing its accumulation and the appearance of migraines.
- Restores optimal levels of DAO activity thanks to its structural and functional equivalence with human DAO, preventing the absorption of histamine.
- The DAO enzyme containing DAOhead® has an enzyme activity of 0.45 mU per capsule (~ 22,000 HDU).
What is DAO?
DAO is the main enzyme in the metabolism of ingested histamine. It is mainly located in the intestinal epithelium, an area where it degrades the histamine ingested in the diet, preventing its passage into the sanguine fluid.
What is histamine?
Histamine is a vital molecule, a transmitter that belongs to the so-called biogenic amines and that is present in many foods naturally as well as inside our cells. Normally, the intake of histamine contained in food is rapidly processed and metabolized by the enzyme DAO.
What is the DAO deficit?
It is a deficiency in the activity of the DAO enzyme. Due to this, histamine is not sufficiently metabolized or degraded, passing into the bloodstream and triggering the different symptoms. The usual symptoms when there is a DAO deficiency are migraine and headaches. Although other symptoms may occur such as:
- Digestive disorders.
- Muscle discomfort and contractures.
- Dry or atopic skin.
How does DAOhead work?
The DiAminoOxidase (DAO) of DAOhead complements the body's own enzyme, which is responsible for metabolizing histamine. Taking a DAOhead capsule before each meal increases the amount of DAO in the small intestine and therefore the ability to break down histamine. This accelerates the processing in the diffusion tube of the histamine present in food, which is the trigger for the symptoms.
