Dihydromyricetin benefits to our body

1.Dihydromyricetin has the effect of detoxifying alcohol and protecting the liver. It can accelerate the decomposition of ethanol metabolite acetaldehyde and reduce the damage to liver cells, thus playing a role in protecting the liver. At the same time, it can also improve the increase in serum lactate dehydrogenase activity caused by hepatocellular injury and inhibit the formation of collagen fibers in hepatic M-cells, which further protects the health of the liver.

2. Dihydromyricetin has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. It can have a significant inhibitory effect on a variety of test bacteria, including cocci, bacilli, Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, as well as a certain inhibitory effect on yeasts and molds. As the concentration of dihydromyricetin increases, its antimicrobial power increases. Therefore, it can be used as a natural antibacterial agent.

3.Dihydromyricetin has antihypertensive, lipid and blood sugar level lowering effects. It can inhibit platelet aggregation in vitro and thrombus formation in vivo, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. It also increases SOD activity, further protecting cells from oxidative damage.

Is Dihydromyricetin safe?

It’s safe, but long term use has to be considered,the reasons are as follows:

First of all, although dihydromyricetin has a variety of health benefits, it is still a drug or nutraceutical ingredient with certain adverse reactions and side effects. Long-term use may aggravate the burden on the liver and adversely affect liver function. In addition, different people may have different health conditions and reactions, and some may experience allergic reactions or discomfort.

Secondly, Dihydromyricetin preparations need to be used appropriately under the guidance of a doctor. Doctors will formulate a suitable treatment plan and dosage according to the patient’s specific conditions, such as illness, physical condition, age and other factors. Patients should not buy and use it on their own, not to mention overdose or long-term use.

so how about its dosage?(dihydromyricetin dosage)

For drunks, we recommend that most people take 800mg – 1,200mg of Dihydromyricetin before bed to help you look your best the next day.
That said, heavy or light drinkers may need more, so depending on whether you’re up for doing some math, we recommend taking 400mg for every two drinks, or 200mg for a glass of wine.
If this doesn’t work for you, increase the amount in moderation.
