Dihydromyricetin (DHM) Benefits and Uses


Dihydromyricetin (DHM) is taken by mouth for its purported antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. More recently, research has pointed to its potential use as a supplement to help reduce the symptoms of a hangover and to protect the liver. It has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to help reduce the effects of inflammation in the body.


Research in animal studies suggests several important mechanisms of action relating to DHM’s ability to protect against hangovers:

-       It triggers the production of the enzymes alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH)

-       DHM appears to improve the efficacy of both ADH and ALDH

-       It helps to reduce fatty acid accumulation in the liver

-       DHM reduced the expression of inflammation markers in the liver, including IL-1β, NF-κB, and TNF-α.




DHM is known by a number of alternative names including:





Hovenia dulcis






Scientific Consensus:


DHM is likely safe when taken by mouth. It is taken commonly to help reduce the symptoms of hangover and protect the liver against inflammation, especially caused by alcohol use. As an oral supplement, the recommended serving size of Dihydromyricetin is 400 mg. Take 1-2 servings up to twice per day.


There is still a need for further research into the significance of DHM’s benefits and adverse effects. Nevertheless, Dihydromycetin appears safe for use at the recommended serving size, with only mild side effects very rarely being reported.


There is insufficient research to support the use of DHM (Ampelopsin) supplementation during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
