Vine tea extract Dihydromyricetin (DHM) is found all over Asia. As a deciduous tree, it grows up to 12m tall, and bears a berry-like fruit that tastes similar to raisins, from which it gets it’s name.
It has been used in traditional Japanese, Chinese, and Korean medicines to treat fever, parasitic infection. It is used for preventing hangovers and protecting liver and brain from alcohol.
Should I take it before or after drinking?
When you take Vine tea extract dihydromyricetin really depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. So, for example, researchers found that taking a relatively large dose before drinking it reduced the circulating levels of alcohol in the blood. For most people however, we recommend taking it immediately after drinking which works very well to reduce the hangover symptoms usually felt the next day and stops the GABA rebound effect that will often wake you up in the middle of the night or give you anxiety the next day.
Will DHM stop me getting drunk?
Not really. Vine tea extract Dihydromyricetin (DHM) will reduce the impact alcohol has on your central nervous system (by down-regulating GABA transmission) which means you may be more co-ordinated and less likely to have slurred speech if you take Vine tea extract Dihydromyricetin when consuming alcohol.
