Have you ever felt ill after consuming alcohol or sausage meat products? Then you could belong to the one percent of europeans, most of which are women, who suffer from a histamine intolerance. Histamine intolerance is a food intolerance which develops during the course of life and often becomes noticeable through pseudo-allergic reactions, such as skin irritations, stomach pains, diarrhea, vomiting, respiration problems, headaches or cardiovascular problems after the consumption of certain food products. Although histamine is a chemical produced by the own body, higher amounts can have a detrimental effect. The source of an increased histamine value can often be found in our diet.The consumption of products which are rich in histamine such as, for example, certain alcoholic drinks such as sparkling wines and red wine, sausage meat products, fish, sauerkraut, cheese, fruit and legumes can lead to an imbalance between the histamine and the enzyme that decomposes the histamine. As well as food products which release histamine within the body such as crustaceans and chocolate. If this imbalance occurs, then the enzyme production is not sufficient enough to degrade the increased histamine. The unpleasant symptoms stated above often tend to be the result. As the degradation product of the histamine, the methylhistamine in urine reflects the allergically triggered inflammatory activity.
