What is Dihydromyricetin?
Dihydromyricetin, also known as ampelopsin, is a flavanonol, a type of flavonoid, a Chinese herbal tea that had been taken for more than 2000 years as a hangover remedy. In 2008 dihydromyricetin was approved by the Korean FDA for use as a treatment for alcoholism. Dihydromyricetin has also been shown to be effective in treating oral ulcers, and antioxidant properties.
Dihydromyricetin is credited with hepatoprotective effects observed in rodents. Use of Hovenia species in traditional Chinese herbal medicine as a hangover cure has led to research into the potential action of dihydromyricetin in counteracting the effects of alcohol in the brain.

Botanical sources: Dihydromyricetin in Nature
Dihydromyricetin is found naturally in a plant named Hovenia Dulcis, also called the oriental raisin tree. Dihydromyricetin can be found in Cedrus deodara or in the Japanese raisin tree (Hovenia Dulcis). It is also found in Erythrophleum africanum and vine tea extract. This hardy tree occurs from Japan, Korean, Eastern China to the Himalayas.
