DHM May Be Used to Treat Alzheimer’s Disease and Heart Attacks
Research published in Neurochemical Research suggests that dihydromyricetin (DHM) may restore GABA synapse functionality to improve memory and learning abilities. Thus, it has the potential to treat neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Not only that, DHM may also help in recovery from heart attacks by reducing the area of damage and improving heart function. It may also alleviate oxidative stress.
DHM is an active ingredient found in the plant Hovenia dulcis, also known as the Japanese raisin tree or Oriental raisin tree.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the leading progressive neurodegenerative disorder afflicting 35.6 million people worldwide. There is no therapeutic agent that can slow or stop the progression of AD. Human studies show that besides loss of cognition/learning ability, neuropsychological symptoms such as anxiety and seizures are seen as high as 70 and 17 % respectively in AD patients.

What is Dihydromyricetin?
Dihydromyricetin, or DHM, is a bioflavonoid. Flavonoids are chemicals produced by the metabolism of plants, with a vast variety of functions. These functions include protecting plants from stress, as well as contributing to the smell and colour of fruit and flowers. As a natural flavonoid, DHM is produced in unique plant species, including the Japanese raisin tree (Hovenia dulcis) and Ampelopsis grossedentata. Both plants are used in East Asian traditional herbal teas and remedies, with many reported health benefits.
