Dihydromyricetin (or DHM) is an extract from the Japanese Raisin Tree that has been used for centuries as an anti-alcohol herb and hangover cure in Korean and Chinese traditional medicine. Recent studies suggest that DHM could lower your blood alcohol level and protect your liver from damage and disease.
DHM is a flavonoid most typically extracted from Vine Tea but it also can be extracted from the bark of the Holvenia Dulcis tree. And most importantly, Dihydromyricetin has a long history of being taken specifically for the purposes of treating headaches and hangovers.
What is Dihydromyricetin?
Dihydromyricetin, also know as Ampelopsin, is a flavanonol, a type of flavonoid. It is found in the Ampelopsis species japonica, megalophylla, and grossedentata; Cercidiphyllum japonicum; Hovenia dulcis; Rhododendron cinnabarinum; some Pinus species; and some Cedrus species, as well as in Salix sachalinensis.
Dihydromyricetin extract powder, the main active ingredient is flavonoids. With the functions of scavenging free radicals, antioxidants, antithrombotic, Tumor, anti-inflammatory and other peculiar effects; Dihydromyricetin is a special flavonoid compound. In addition to the general characteristics of flavonoids, it also has the ability to relieve alcohol poisoning, prevent alcoholic liver, fatty liver, and inhibit liver cells. Worsening and reducing the incidence of liver cancer. It is a good product for protecting the liver and hangover.
DHM main benefit is the prevention and reduction of hangovers, to protects your liver and brain. This is achieved by the enhancement of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH), which are the main enzymes responsible for breaking down alcohol and acetaldehyde within the body.
Acetaldehyde in particular is a highly toxic chemical and one of the main causes of hangovers. When these enzymes are enhanced, alcohol and acetaldehyde can be broken down faster than normal.
DHM has many cellular health properties that lend themselves to promoting cognitive health. This occurs because DHM promotes heme-oxygenase-1 (HO-1), an enzyme that catalyzes the degradation of heme and confers cellular health properties. Dihydromyricetin can also promote liver health.
The other dihydromyricetin benefits
1)Dihydromyricetin can Clearing the free radical in body and antioxidation
2)Dihydromyricetin can Antibiotic Action
3)Dihydromyricetin can Protecting the Liver: Dihydromyricetin has the strong inhibitory action of the rise of ALT and AST in the blood Serum. It can low the total bilirubin in the blood serum. So it has the strong action of lowing the aminotransferase and jaundice.
4)Dihydromyricetin can Reducing the levels of blood sugar and blood fat: Dihydromyricetin can reduce the blood fat levels in the mouse. It can decrease the damage to liver cells caused by the high blood fat levels and improve the antioxidation ability. At the same time, it can low the levels of high blood sugar.
5)Dihydromyricetin can Anti-inflammation
6)Dihydromyricetin can Anti-tumor: Dihydromyricetin extract powder has effective restrain to cell proliferation of some tumor cells.
Dihydromyricetin side effects.
Overall there are only a few studies to date looking at DHMs side effect profile and so far no adverse problems have been reported.
A quick search on Amazon will show thousands of reviews. Looking through them, there are some reports of abdominal discomfort, nausea, and diarrhea. However, there aren’t many customers that report these side effects.

Dihydromyricetin research in Anti-Cancer
In fact, there is some pretty compelling research showing that dihydromyricetin has potential to assist with a non-alcohol related condition called Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). HCC is a condition which exhibits one of the highest incidences of morbidity and mortality worldwide, and presents the predominant subtype of primary liver cancer. As DHM exhibits a protective ability on the liver (it’s a hepatprotective) the results revealed that it significantly inhibited cell proliferation and induced cell apoptosis in the HCC cell lines, indicating that DHM is a promising candidate for the treatment of HCC.
