DAOhead is a food for special medical uses for the dietary treatment of migraine and other vascular headaches caused by DAO deficiency.
Recent clinical studies show that 87% of migraine cases are caused by DAO deficiency.
DAOhead has been formulated based on scientific and clinical evidence. It is not a supplement or food supplement, but a dietary treatment specially formulated and indicated for special medical uses, without adverse effects and suitable for diabetics, celiacs and lactose and histamine intolerant.
DAOhead is a migraine treatment recommended by the International Society of DAO deficiency.
It contains extract of Pig Kidney Protein with 7% Diamine Oxidase (DAO), vitamin B9 (folic acid), vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and caffeine that act as adjuvants in the treatment of migraine and other vascular headaches.
And its format in smart gastro-resistant capsules, guarantees its effectiveness, since each pellet in the capsule is removable, allowing treatment with or without caffeine.
Histamine is a vital molecule that is present in all foods in the daily diet and is the mediator of many biological processes and physiological functions, such as gastric acid secretion, immune system responses, sleep rhythm regulation, appetite control, and neuromodulation, as it acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.
Under normal conditions, ingested histamine is broken down by the enzyme Diamine Oxidase (DAO) in the small intestine.
If the metabolic activity of the DAO enzyme is reduced, the ingested histamine cannot be degraded and passes through the intestinal mucosa to the circulatory system, causing the appearance of symptoms. This can happen due to genetic, pharmacological and / or pathological factors.
DAOhead provides the exogenous DAO enzyme necessary to complement the body's own enzyme, preventing the appearance of migraine symptoms.
Thanks to its gastro-resistant pellets, the amount of DAO in the small intestine is increased and, therefore, the ability to degrade food histamine.
This accelerates the processing in the digestive tract of histamine present in food, preventing its accumulation in the bloodstream and avoiding the appearance of migraine symptoms.
Its Eficaps® technology allows the maximum effectiveness of dietary histamine metabolism per dose, since each DAOhead gastro-resistant capsule contains four pellets of different color, which carry out a delayed controlled release of their active ingredients in their places of maximum activity.
The first pellet is immediate release and contains caffeine. If you cannot take caffeine, you can open the capsule and remove the red pellet.
The second pellet releases the B group vitamins (B6, B9, B12) necessary for the proper functioning of the CNS and the metabolization of histamine.
The third and fourth pellets reach the intestine intact, after overcoming the attack of stomach acids releasing DAO of animal origin and ensuring maximum activity in the degradation process in the small intestine of ingested histamine, due to its greater structural similarity and functional with human DAO (its DAO activity is 22,000 HDU, similar to 100% pure DAO activity), compared to DAO of plant origin with insufficient levels of bioavailability and enzymatic activity in our body due to its structural differences and functional with human DAO.
