How Dihydromyricetin Sobers You Up Quicker

Taking Dihydromyricetin after a long night of drinking doesn't just prevent hangovers, but also increases the rate at which you sober up after a night of drinking. [1][2] It does this through two primary methods:

Dihydromyricetin Helps the Liver Metabolize Alcohol Faster

After alcohol is consumed, it is quickly absorbed into the blood stream and reaches the liver. Once it reaches the liver, it is metabolized by the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH). The ADH enzyme breaks down alcohol at a constant rate, regardless of how much alcohol is consumed. When a person consumes too much alcohol, it builds up in their blood stream, raises their blood alcohol content, and affects their brain.

Scientists discovered Dihydromyricetin is able to enhance the ADH enzyme. [2] This means your liver can break down alcohol more quickly. When your liver can metabolize alcohol more quickly less builds up in your blood, and less reaches your brain.

However, DHM can only speed up the metabolism of alcohol by so much. It isn’t going to magically lower your BAC to 0. You should never drink and drive even after taking DHM and you should never use DHM as an excuse to consume alcohol in an irresponsible manner. It is unknown to exactly what extent DHM speeds up alcohol metabolism and it varies from person to person.

Also, it's important to keep in mind that you may still have a high BAC despite feeling sober. This happens because of the effect DHM has on your brain.

Dihydromyricetin dampens the effect alcohol has on the brain

DHM and alcohol both act on GABA receptors in your brain. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters are chemical signals used by your brain to control everything from emotions, movement, behavior, and thought processes. Inhibitory neurotransmitters such as GABA cause your brain to “slow down”.

Alcohol binds to GABA receptors in your brain and amplifies the effect a person gets from the GABA neurotransmitter. As the brain receives a stronger message from GABA you feel more relaxed and heart rate slows. As someone consumes more and more alcohol at one time the message is amplified more and more. Eventually speech begins to slur, loss of motor control occurs, and inhibitions are lowered. At dangerous levels breathing may slow down to the point of coma or death.

Dihydromyricetin also binds to GABA receptors and dampens the effect alcohol has on them. [1][2] This is why people feel more sober when taking DHM before consuming alcohol, and why you may still have a high BAC despite feeling sober.
