Wine filter for Sulfites
Sulfites are a type of preservative commonly added to wine to prevent spoilage and oxidation. They are naturally occurring compounds, but many winemakers also add additional sulfites to stabilize the wine and enhance its shelf life. Some people are sensitive to sulfites and may experience symptoms such as headaches and dizziness after consuming wine that contains sulfites. The exact cause of sulfite-induced headaches is not well understood, but it is believed to be related to the way sulfites affect the body. These symptoms are thought to be related to the way sulfites affect histamine levels in the body and constrict blood vessels, leading to headaches. Corallina Officinalis, the main ingredient in the Wine Balanced filters, neutralizes sulfites in wine.

Wine filter for Histamines
Histamines are naturally occurring compounds that are found in many foods and drinks, including wine. They are produced by yeast during fermentation and can also be produced as a result of spoilage. Many are sensitive to histamines and experience symptoms such as headaches, nasal congestion, skin flushing, and stomach upset after consuming wine that contains high levels of histamines. Histamines can cause headaches in some people because they are known to dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow, which can lead to headaches. This is because their bodies are unable to effectively break down and eliminate histamines, leading to a buildup of these compounds in the bloodstream. The organic mix in Wine Balanced filters remove histamines without changing the chemistry of the wine.
Wine filter for Tannins
Tannins are a type of compound found in wine, as well as in other foods and beverages such as tea and chocolate. Tannins are responsible for the bitter, astringent taste often associated with red wine. They are derived from the grape skins, seeds, and stems and play a role in wine's texture and aging potential. In addition to providing the characteristic bitter taste, tannins can cause headaches in some people. Some research suggests that tannins may cause headaches by constricting blood vessels in the brain, leading to decreased blood flow and headaches. Others have suggested that tannins may cause headaches by increasing the release of certain neurotransmitters that cause headaches. Our wine filter sachets effectively remove tannins and other impurities from wine.
Wine Balanced was founded in 2019 by Mark Christiansen, an American-Norwegian entrepreneur, after he discovered the secret to enjoying wine without headaches while on a trip to Norway. Wine Balanced filters use an absorption process with coral algae, one of the ocean's oldest organisms, to remove histamines, tannins and sulfites without affecting the wine's flavor. Furthermore, many customers have reported a noticeable improvement in the taste of their wine when using the filters.
