Here you can find many questions and answers about our DAOfood products.
The amount of the active Diamine Oxidase enzyme is the same for both products, namely 20,000 - 30,000 HDU per tablet / capsule. Do you only want to use the Diamine Oxidase enzyme? Then it is best to choose the DAOfood mini tablets . These are easy to swallow (5mm diameter). Would you also like the benefits of the additional active ingredients Vitamin C and Quercetin? Then choose the DAOfood Plus capsules . Do you want more flexibility with the amount of DAO per meal? Then DAOfood Plus is a better option. DAOfood Plus contains 2 tablets with the DAO enzyme per capsule. So 1 tablet can also be taken out here and later the rest of the capsule can be taken with the other 3 tablets. For example, you can do something with histamine 6 times a daydigest. The maximum intake of both products is a maximum of 3 capsules / tablets per day.
The DAOfood mini tablets contain only the Diamine Oxidase enzyme, packed in a small tablet (diameter 5mm). In addition to Diamine Oxidase, the DAOfood Plus also contains vitamin C and Quercetin, packed in a capsule. Both the DAOfood mini tablets and the DAOfood Plus capsules contain 20,000 - 30,000 HDU per tablet / capsule.
The active substance in DAOfood is the Diamine Oxidase enzyme. This is the same active substance as Daosin contained. In addition, DAOfood Plus capsules also contain the active ingredients Vitamin C and Quercetin. Basically the effect is the same, but DAOfood works even better, because it contains 20,000 - 30,000 HDU Diamine Oxidase per capsule or tablet and DAOSIN 10,000 HDU per capsule.
How can you say that DAOfood contains 20,000 - 30,000 HDU per capsule or tablet, but the number of mg of pork kidney extract and the number of mg of Diamine Oxidase is the same as DAOSIN. And DAOSIN contains 10,000 HDU of the enzyme Diamine Oxidase?
We can imagine that this may seem confusing. With enzymes, however, the number of mg does not say much about the effectiveness / strength of the enzyme. This is often available in different strengths. The pork kidney extract with diamine oxidase used for DAOfood contains more HDU per gram, making it 20,000 - 30,000 HDU per capsule. The exact number of HDU can differ per batch. Diamine Oxidase is a very difficult enzyme, which means that the same efficacy cannot be achieved every time per batch. The current batch (2006A) DAOfood Plus contains 27390 HDU and the current batch (2002) DAOfood mini tablets contains 28000 HDU Diamine Oxidase.
Why is the maximum number of capsules per day that I can take only 3 capsules? Was this higher at DAOSIN?
It is true that the maximum number of capsules that can be taken per day on the package of DAOSIN was more than 3 capsules. However, the European Commission has now determined that a maximum of 3 capsules or tablets per day may be taken, which is equal to 0.9 mg Diamine Oxidase.
Yes, you can. The handy thing about DAOfood Plus is that it contains capsules with 4 tablets in each capsule. 2 white / beige tablets with 20,000 - 30,000 HDU of the enzyme Diamine Oxidase, 1 green tablet with 38 mg Quercetin and 1 brown tablet with 20 mg Vitamin C. If you do not want to take Quercetin, but want to use DAOfood Plus, you can Remove the green tablet with Quercetin from the capsule. You can also choose to use the DAOfood mini tablets, these only contain the Diamine Oxidase enzyme (DAO) and no Quercetin has been added.
