DAO includes products containing the Diamine Oxidase enzyme. The DAO mini tablets contain only the Diamine Oxidase enzyme (DAO). The DAO Plus capsules contain Vitamin C and Quercetin in addition to the Diamine Oxidase enzyme.
The amount of the active Diamine Oxidase enzyme is the same in both products, 20,000 - 30,000 HDU per tablet/capsule. If you want to use only the Diamine Oxidase enzyme, you should choose the DAO mini tablets. These are easy to swallow (5mm diameter). If you also want the benefits of the additional active ingredients Vitamin C and Quercetin, choose the DAO plus. If would like to spread out the quantity of DAO enzyme during your day then it's possible to open up your recommended dose of 3 capsules and just take the small beige DAO tablets multiple times a day. That way you can still adhere to the maximum dose of 3 capsules a day but are able to take smaller dosages of the DAO enzyme.
Our DAO capsules and tablets are safe to use several times a day. We do recommend that you stick to the maximum set number of capsules/tablets per day. For DAO plus and DAO mini, this is a maximum of 1 capsule/tablet per meal for a maximum of 3 times per day.
Yes, you certainly can. The convenient thing about DAO 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 don't want to take Quercetin, but still want to use DAO Plus, you can remove the green tablet with Quercetin from the capsule. You can also choose to use the DAO mini tablets, which only contain the Diamine Oxidase enzyme (DAO) and no Quercetin is added.
