The liver’s response to alcohol
When alcohol is consumed, the liver uses enzymes (ADH and ALDH) to break it down at a speed of one drink per hour. So when you drink more than what your liver can handle, a chemical called Acetaldehyde rapidly builds up in the bloodstream.
“Korean pears act on the key enzymes involved in alcohol metabolism, alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) to speed up alcohol metabolism and elimination or inhibition of alcohol absorption. In particular, reductions were seen in blood acetaldehyde levels, the toxic metabolic thought to be responsible for the hangover symptoms, with pear juice consumption.”
Acetaldehyde. The chemical byproduct of alcohol that has been shown to be responsible for many of the symptoms accompanying a hangover.
This nasty chemical is 30 times more toxic than alcohol and is the chemical cousin of formaldehyde, a chemical used to preserve dead bodies. Reducing the amount of this chemical in the body is the smarter way to drink.
Give the brain a good night's sleep
Dihydromyricetin (DHM for short) is an ingredient contained in the Oriental Raisin Tree.
When alcohol passes through the brain, it wipes out a stimulant called glutamine. Afterwards, when sleeping, the brain goes into overdrive producing more of the stimulant, glutamine. That’s the reason why you can often wake up early the next morning, feeling restless and anxious.
DHM helps to regulate the brain’s production of glutamine, keeping it level and reducing those feelings of dread the next morning.
