👉🏽 HAS ANYONE TOLD YOU WHAT HISTAMINE DOES IN THE BRAIN?
✅HISTAMINE KEEPS YOU ALERT AND AWAKE:
Histamine is considered one of the strongest Neurotransmitters in the brain to increase WAKEFULNESS and AROUSAL.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, it was demonstrated that in subjects with high fatigue scores and sleep disruption scores, ingesting L-histidine for 2 weeks decreased fatigue T-scores on the POMS questionnaire and decreased reaction times. Histidine ingestion also increased the sensation of thinking clearly and feelings of attentiveness (Sasahara et al., 2015).
💡LOW HISTAMINE SYMPTOMS (HISTAPENIA):
-Low stomach acid
-Free floating anxiety
-Low Libido (Delayed ejaculation), high histamine = Faster ejaculation time.
(Nitta, Kikuzaki & Ueno, 2007).
😵HOW LOW HISTAMINE AFFECTS THE BRAIN:
Low histamine is a A disturbing phenomenon leading to fatigue, paranoia, anxiety & scattered thoughts.
When histamine levels fall too low, your Norepinephrine levels rise to disturbingly enormous amounts. As a result, you become "locked-up" and constantly serious - embracing paranoia and a shallow look on the world, unable to relax. In this mindset, you are quickly seeking stimulants to wake out of a fatigue that has been eating at you all day...because the elevated norepinephrine levels end up stressing the adrenals
👇🏾WHAT LOWERS HISTAMINE:
-Green tea in high amounts can cause your histamine levels plummet (Nitta, Kikuzaki & Ueno, 2007).
-Chronic stress has been shown to increase the levels of histamine-degrading enzymes.
-Quercetin in high amounts
-Black seed oil.
-High dose Vitamin C
Histamine is an important neurotransmitter. However, it’s also not something we want to have insanely high all the time, as this can lead to adverse mental health. Balance is key. For more similar health hacks checkout the free courses in my bio!
