Where does DHM (Dihydromyricetin) come from?
DHM is derived from the fruit of the Japanese raisin tree (Hovenia Dulcis), which is native to Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia and now commercially grown in the USA but has been used for over 500 years.
What DHM does for your body (specifically the liver)
The unpleasant feeling you get from a hangover is due to ethanol like properties, such as, acetalhyde. When combined with dehydration, this can cause headaches, nausea, and vomiting. Your liver meabolizes alcohol at a constant rate. When too much alcohol is in your liver, the excess will overflow into your bloodstream unil the liver has enough capacity again. DHM can help with this. Your liver will continue at its normal processing rate and DHM will take care of the rest. DHM acts as a tool; it is there to assist your liver while you're drinking. If your liver was damaged before CYOH came to the rescue don't worry! DHM has been shown to help damaged livers as well.
How to eliminate my hangover by using DHM
Most people have hangovers after drinking to the point of intoxication. The unpleasant feelings from a hangover are from the ethanol properties like Acetaldehyde which paired up with dehydration causes headaches, nausea, and vomiting. Your liver metabolizes alcohol at a constant rate, but when too much alcohol is in your liver the excess flows into your bloodstream until the liver has more room to metabolize the remaining alcohol.
Now because DHM helps the liver process alcohol faster, it allows the liver to do its normal job while DHM handles the rest. DHM is a protective tool for your liver while drinking, but also useful for liver damage that might have taken place years ago as well.
