#08 – The Histamine Leaky Gut Connection with Dr. Aaron Gardner

Histamine. It’s an important neurotransmitter found in the brain, in the gut and even in the food we eat. Commonly associated with allergic reactions, there’s more to histamine than meets the eye. In this episode of the podcast, we get into all things histamine. We discuss the genes that play an important role in clearing histamine from the body, the link between histamine intolerance and leaky gut, how to determine whether your histamine levels have gotten too high, supplements to consider for quieting down the immune system and keeping histamine in check, and whether low histamine diets are sustainable. You can view my histamine intolerance blog here and the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition article referenced in the podcast episode here.
