A Vitamin/Antioxidant for Tinnitus

Vitamins/antioxidants are essential to hearing and prevent/treat tinnitus

Ringing in the ears – tinnitus – bothers millions of persons all over the world. Often it is caused by noise trauma, especially among the military.

Free Radicals, the Waste Products
In the past, treatments were directed at increasing circulation to the inner ear. Now studies show how free radicals cause death of ear cells following excessive noise. Hence the use of antioxidants for hearing and tinnitus is backed by years of study. Hearing is not only the ear, however. The nerves and brain are essential too.

One fact is evident; when the total hearing system is treated, when the brain is engaged, the benefits of therapy are increased.

When The Whole Person Takes Charge
This is not a new concept. In any medical syndrome, when the patient follows the full program – diet, exercises, reducing stress, taking medications as directed – in other words, taking charge, healing factors are increased.

The Role of Antioxidants
The more the metabolism of hearing is studied, the more complex chemical changes are identified. What is clear is that there is no single vitamin or drug that can eliminate tinnitus. In the body, after a chemical reaction takes place, certain products, similar to waste are produced. These are called oxidative products or free radicals. Since they are waste, there is a system for removal or blocking them from causing harm. But in excess noise trauma, the free radicals may be in excess and harms delicate cells of the inner ear.

Therefore there are rationales for taking certain products for tinnitus therapy. It is clear that an excess of oxidative product in the cochlea causes damage. So, antioxidants make sense. But, which one?
Vital Elements for Hearing
N Acetyl Carnitine (NAC) has been studied extensively. Tests have demonstrated that this product protects hearing damage due to excess noise. In some tests, administering NAC days after noise exposure also protected against damage. NAC protects the hearing cells in the presence of excess oxidative products.

Acetyl L-Carnitine is a nutritional ingredient related to B vitamins. Part of its function is to help generate mitochondria in the inner ear. Another function is to effect auditory transmission.

N-acetylcysteine has been shown to protect against various hearing toxins (ototoxicity) including cisplanin. It works with other products in ear metabolism.

Alpha-lipoic acid is a natural antioxidant that has general antioxidative functions. It has been particularly studied in eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, where it is shown to help capillaries that diabetes may damage.

The B complex vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B12 support the hearing mechanism.

B2 or riboflavin and magnesium have been shown to have properties of protecting nerve function and nerve health.

In one study, magnesium plus vitamins protected test animals from damage due to noise.

Selenium in combination with other vitamins protects against toxic products

When These Work Together
The complete mechanism of hearing turns out to be highly complex. For a complete nerve transmission to take place, multiple chemical reactions must take place. Thus it is necessary to combine several products that work better in synchrony with others.

This is the advantage of the tinnitus caps at www.drgrossantinnitus.com . The combination works better because one product supports the other. Think of an automobile, you can add motor oil, but it runs best if you add gasoline , brake fluid and your battery is charged.

The Tinnitus Caps –www.drgrossantinnitus.com work best when combined with the Whole Person Tinnitus Relief Program that is here at https://grossaninstitute.com//?p=466. That way you have all the elements for good healing, including your brain.
