What it is and how it works on the liver - dihydromyricetin(DHM)Failure and cirrhosis of the liver are very serious conditions that concern for both patients and doctors. Scientists have recently turned attention to the new plant, which probably helps the liver. This plant is a Japanese Raisin Tree. Includes dihydromyricetin (DHM), and it was she who raised hopes among professionals.
Our liver is an organ that has the amazing ability to repair itself. However attacked lifelong toxins, drugs, chemical food additives, various types of pollution, just have the right to rebel. Sometimes (especially when it is destroyed by virus diseases) can not keep up with the reconstruction and repair of cells.
From cosmetics to ... liverDihydromyricetin (abbreviated DHM) - a flavonoid that has been found in the leaves and flowers howenii. So far, it mainly used in cosmetology, because:
inhibits hair growth, and therefore part of the hair removal creams;
part of some slimming lotions and designed to combat cellulite.
Also enhances the decomposition of body fat, but also makes it impossible to rebuild. According to some, it also has the ability to inhibit proliferation of adipocytes - fat cells.
DHM and ... rats after alcohol play worseWhat is the relationship between dihydromyricetin and liver?
Researchers in California conducted an interesting experiment, which dealt with alcohol poisoning symptoms and reduced under the influence of dihydromyricetin. The tests have been rats and observed that animals treated with alcohol and DHM, then began to lose control of the body, than those who received only alcohol.
In addition, rats treated with DHM previously ceased to present symptoms of intoxication.
This may indicate that the metabolism of alcohol, which takes place mainly in the liver occurred in them much more efficiently.
We can assume that dihydromyricetin supports the work of the organ.
However, according to some, the DHM mechanism of action is based primarily on blocking the effects of alcohol on GABA receptors that are found in the brain and are responsible for the symptoms of alcohol intoxication.
Currently, clinical trials are planned that will involve the use of DHM in the treatment of alcoholism. Scientists live in the hope that this will be effective substance dependent patients and help them overcome this addiction.
