Dihydromyricetin Research

Unlike other hangover prevention products on the market which use very few ingredients shown to have any impact on hangovers and alcohol intoxication, Dihydromyricetin's benefits are backed by a large weight of research.

Countless studies have been performed on DHM, and they provide scientific evidence backing up claims that Dihydromyricetin:

Dihydromyricetin and Alcohol


Conclusions:

• DHM is safe, and does not cause intoxication, sedation, or any other negative side effects when taken at normal doses

• Hovenia extracts (Dihydromyricetin) ameliorate alcohol-induced liver injuries (Du et al., 2010), and relieve hangover, partly by promoting EtOH elimination via enhancement of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) activity. Acetaldehyde dehydrogenase is an enzyme responsible for breaking down acetaldehyde, a highly toxic chemical and one of the main causes of hangovers.

• DHM counteracts alcohol intoxication.

• Dihydromyricetin reduces alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

• DHM reduces voluntary alcohol consumption in rats.

Conclusions:

• Dihydromyricetin reduces existing intoxication and prevents drunkenness.

• DHM reduces Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)

• DHM reduces the amount of alcohol absorbed into the GI-tract.

• DHM improves the ability of the liver to metabolize alcohol and acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is produced when the body breaks down alcohol and is one of the main causes of hangovers.

Conclusions:

• Significantly reduces ethanol-induced inebriation.

• Reduces cancer risks

• Hepaprotective: prevents and helps repair liver damage.

• Neuroprotective: prevents and helps repair damage to brain cells. While no experiments have been done to test DHM's protective effect against damage to dendrites caused by chronic alcohol consumption, it's neuroprotective properties suggest it could protect against such damage.

Dihydromyricetin and Liver Damage


Conclusions:

• DHM (hovenia dulcis extract) has a significant protective effect against alcohol-induced liver damage.

Read Abstract

Conclusions:

• This study found an inhibitory effect of ampelopsin (DHM) on the growth of human hepatocellular carcinoma Bel-7402, which suggests it may help to prevent malignant hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common form of liver cancer.

Read Abstract

Conclusions:

• Dihydromyricetin prevents liver damage caused by oxidative stress.

Read Abstract

Conclusions:

• DHM showed significant hepatoprotective activity against CCl 4-toxicity in rats and D-galactosamine (D- GalN)/lipopolysaccharide-induced liver injury in mice.

• DHM significantly protected against CCl 4-toxicity in primary cultured rat hepatocytes.

Dihydromyricetin and Cancer


Conclusions:

DHM has an anti-proliferative effect in vitro on a few cancer cells

DHM can inhibit proliferation and invasion of MDA-MB-231 cells, and invasion inhibition may be related to the down-regulation of the expression levels of MMP-2/-9 proteins.

• DHM reduces the proliferation of existing prostate cancer cells
