Histamine Xmas Hayem

With the party season about to get into full swing, Christmas can prove to be a minefield for those with Histamine Intolerance (HIT)… 🍷

particularly because alcohol and the classic festive foods such as mince pies and Christmas pudding are high in histamine or act as histamine liberators. 😞

Here are 5 top tips for balancing histamine over the festive period:

  • Keep well hydrated to flush histamine out of the body.

  • Enjoy low histamine foods rich in natural antihistamines such as vitamin C and quercetin e.g. apples, blueberries, onions and broccoli.

  • Avoid eating Christmas dinner leftovers on Boxing Day.

  • Coffee and tea can both act as a trigger for symptoms so opt for a chamomile or peppermint tea instead.

  • If you do drink wine, experiment with a wine wand to lower histamine levels.

Do share with friends or family who might have HIT.
