Dihydromyricetin, a natural, reputable compound
Described by some researchers as a miracle hangover cure, dihydromyricetin is a natural compound that has been much-studied in recent years. Also known as ampelopsin, this molecule is found in many plants of the Ampelopsis genus such as Ampelopsis grossedentata, Ampelopsis japonica and Ampelopsis megalophylla. This natural active principle has also been identified in Hovenia dulcis, a renowned medicinal plant of the Asian pharmacopoeia. Used for centuries in China, Japan and Korea, this plant is recommended for a number of situations, both for its laxative properties as well as for treating fever, parasitic infections and liver problems. It was this latter aspect that drew researchers to investigate the potential of dihydromyricetin for mitigating the unwelcome effects of alcohol. In addition to protecting the liver against alcohol-related damage, it can help avoid that ‘morning after’ feeling. Significant benefits for fighting alcohol’s damaging effects
Recent studies suggest that dihydromyricetin is highly effective at reducing the damage caused by excessive alcohol consumption. They show that this molecule can not only protect vital organs such as the liver and brain, but also counteract some of the side-effects of getting drunk including loss of coordination, decreased reaction time and communication difficulties. Researchers suggest that dihydromyricetin works at different levels within the body:
Dihydromyricetin, a natural, safe molecule
- - preventing alcohol-induced damage via its antioxidant power;
- - promoting the elimination of alcohol by stimulating activity of the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase;
- - combatting alcohol-induced toxicity by protecting and detoxifying the liver.
These recent discoveries have led to dihydromyricetin being hailed as a ‘miracle hangover cure’. Because of its antioxidant and liver-protective properties, this flavonoid is also used to treat certain liver diseases and to support withdrawal from alcohol. Derived from plants, this natural active principle has the added advantage of being completely safe, with no side-effects reported to date from using this product. The benefits of dihydromyricetin are now available in the form of vegetarian capsules.
