A Two-Edged Sword
Histamine is an amine (a chemical which is made from an amino acid) that is involved in tasks within the immune and neuroendocrine systems, neurotransmission, gastric secretion, cell life and death, and development. It is part of a local immune response to cause inflammation. It performs several important functions in the bowel and acts as a neurotransmitter or chemical messenger that carries signals from one nerve to another. It is able to affect the immune, digestive and nervous systems by affecting cells in many different parts of the body.
