Dihydromyricetin – “Soft Gold in Flavonoids”
What is Dihydromyricetin?
Dihydromyricetin, a special flavonoid extracted from Ampelopsis, is known as “soft gold in flavonoids”.
This kind of substance has many peculiar effects, such as scavenging free radical, antioxidation, antithrombotic, anti-tumor, and anti-inflammatory. And dihydromyricetin is a more special kind of flavonoid. Besides the general characteristics of flavonoids, it has the following characteristics:
1, the general flavonoids are basically insoluble in water, soluble in ethanol, and dihydromyricetin
is easy to dissolve in hot water, that is to say, as long as the dihydromyricetin in rattan tea can be soaked with open water, the efficacy is better.
2, in addition to the general effect of flavonoids, HMP also has the effect of relieving alcoholism, preventing alcohol liver, fatty liver, inhibiting the deterioration of hepatocytes, and reducing the incidence of liver cancer.
3, Dihydromyricetin has a small molecular weight, which is easier to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and work faster.
Dihydromyricetin is a more special kind of flavonoid. In addition to the general characteristics of flavonoids, it has the effect of relieving alcoholism, preventing alcohol liver, fatty liver, inhibiting the deterioration of hepatocytes, and reducing the incidence of liver cancer. It is a good product of protecting the liver and protecting the liver and relieving alcohol and sobering up wine.
The physical and chemical properties of dihydromyricetin are white needle-like crystallization (ethanol), soluble in hot water, hot ethanol and acetone, soluble in ethanol and methanol, extremely soluble in ethyl acetate, insoluble in chloroform and petroleum ether.
Micro herb studies showed that the thermal stability of dihydromyricetin was better, but with the increase of temperature, the irreversible oxidation reaction of dihydromyricetin was more than 100 degrees. Dihydromyricetin is stable under neutral and acid conditions.
Although the role of dihydromyricetin is so extensive, the content in the Ampelopsis is not high. It is understood that: the highest content of dihydromyricetin is Ampelopsis Rubra. However, it is also the main form of dihydromyricetin.
What is Dihydromyricetin used for?
Dihydromyricetin has been demonstrated to show antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antimicrobial, cell death-mediating, and lipid and glucose metabolism-regulatory activities.
