Problem: Toxins get in your liver
Acetaldehyde is a toxin formed through the breakdown of alcohol in our liver, and it builds up when we drink more alcohol than our liver can process. It causes cellular inflammation, resulting in effects like sweating, nausea, and vomiting. Sound familiar?
How it Works:
Alcohol undergoes a two-step process of metabolism in our liver
First, our liver enzyme Alcohol Dehydrogenase (ADH) converts Alcohol into a metabolite called Acetaldehyde through oxidation. Acetaldehyde binds to proteins, and causes cellular inflammation; resulting in sweating, nausea and vomiting.
Luckily, our body is equipped with enzymes like Aldehyde-Dehydrogenase (ALDH) and glutathione that convert this toxic chemical into Acetic Acid that gets safely flushed out of our body.
The Remedy: DHM
Dihydromyricetin (DHM) works by increasing the ability of two key enzymes to function (ADH and ALDH), which speeds up the breakdown of Acetaldehyde into Acetic Acid.
Limiting Glutamate rebound in the brain
Alcohol also inhibits glutamate production; our body’s natural stimulant. When we stop drinking, our body undergoes a rebound effect to produce more glutamate than it needs. This results in fatigue from poor sleep and anxiety.
In our brain, alcohol affects two neurotransmitters: Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) and Glutamate.
Alcohol binds to GABA receptors, and increases GABA production, an inhibitor that causes relaxation, lowered inhibitions, slurred words and loss of motor control.
This, in turn, suppresses the release of Glutamate, an excitatory neurotransmitter that increases brain activity and energy levels. When you stop drinking, there's a rebound effect of glutamate production, which is why we fall asleep easily at first, but often wake up tired with anxiety.
The Solution: DHM
Dihydromyricetin (DHM) binds to GABA receptors and helps mitigate the effects of alcohol consumption on our brain. This helps you wake up feeling great the next morning!
