Don’t Forget Your Family
Wine intolerance is typically due to genetic predisposition. This is why Vinami is not a cure for wine intolerance even though it is wonderfully effective for increasing wine tolerance when you take it regularly.
Don’t forget your family! If you have wine intolerance, it is very likely that members of your family have the problem too. Their reactions can be mislabeled as irritable bowel syndrome, depression, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, or fibromyalgia. That doesn’t mean that Vinami is a treatment or cure for these conditions. Vinami can be very helpful if the symptoms someone in your family is troubled by are actually due to sensitivity to the compounds common to wine and found elsewhere.

2. The problem appears to be more common in the US – probably somewhere around 12% in women and 8% in men – due to the higher baseline exposure to man-made chemicals from food and the environment in the US.
