DHM (Dihydromyricetin), also known as Ampelopsin and Ampelopsin grossedentata, is a flavonoid of the Japanese Raisin Tree, Hovenia dulcis (3). DHM may reduce the effects of hangovers and may assist the body in alcohol metabolism.
DHM Dihydromyricetin Capsules Benefits
- May decrease acetaldehyde (the toxic metabolite of alcohol) in humans (ref)*
- May improve lipid metabolism (ref)*
DHM is emerging as a subject of interest in the medical community, but thus far, there has not been a large amount of research or trials conducted with humans, except for those studies referenced above.*
The following are examples of dynamics associated with DHM through the animal model:
- May lessen the effects of alcohol consumption (in rats) (ref)*
- May reduce oxidative stress on the liver after alcohol consumption (in mice) (ref)*
We’re sure you love to enjoy yourselves on occasion as much as we do… and we’re also sure you hate the next day effects that alcohol can have, especially on your brain and performance levels.
How does this happen?
And more importantly, can we stop it?
To answer the first question we must answer the second.
In short, when we drink more alcohol than our livers can safely process (which is around 1 unit per hour, in other words nothing close to a party), the amount of alcohol in our blood builds up and causes a backlog waiting to be processed.
Once the liver gets round to it, it produces toxic compounds which linger in our bodies and cause the dreaded feelings we experience the next day – sluggishness, anxiety and fast-beating hearts.
This happens because our livers only contain a certain amount of the enzymes necessary to break down alcohol and the toxic compounds it produces.
Which is where DHM comes in. DHM increases the amounts of these enzymes in the liver, meaning we stress our body for less time when we drink, and also ensuring our symptoms the next day are bearable or non-existent.
This product is a must if you’re looking to maximize your performance long term, or if you’re simply getting older and wondering how you can have that after work beverage without sacrificing your next morning for it.
Pure Nootropics’ DHM Dihydromyricetin provides 300 mg per 1 capsule. Suggested use for adults is 1 capsule by mouth in the morning after consuming alcohol, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
