Vinami is a formulation of vitamins, minerals and plant extracts specifically designed to support the metabolism of naturally occurring compounds in wine to which people may be sensitive. These compounds are sulfites, aldehydes, phenols, prostaglandins, tyramine, histamine, and congeners (methanol, fusel oils, acetone). People who are sensitive to these compounds in wine commonly experience similar symptoms when exposed to them in foods and volatile aromatic forms.
Vinami is not a cure for sensitivity to these compounds. Sensitivity to these compounds is more likely in those who are genetically predisposed. Vinami is a nutritional formula that consistently increases tolerance to these compounds when used regularly.
The ingredients in Vinami are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) by the FDA and no prescription is required to use Vinami.
