You don’t have to suffer from hearing loss - even if you’re around loud noises every day

Did you know that your blood levels of certain nutrients can protect your ears and prevent hearing loss? In fact, a new study suggests that you can boost your levels of these nutrients and see significant improvement in hearing if you've already started to lose it.

A recent study exposed people to hazardous noise levels. They wanted to see if their blood levels of magnesium affected how much hearing they lost due to the noise.

The researchers had already done experiments on animals and found that the magnesium was protective and even healing. They wanted to see if the mineral had the same impact on humans.

To measure hearing thresholds, the researchers used a test called noise-induced permanent hearing threshold shifts (NIPTS). This test helps reveal any changes in hearing.

According to the report, the researchers followed "300 young, healthy, and normal-hearing recruits who underwent two months of basic military training. This training necessarily included repeated exposures to high levels of impulse noises while using ear plugs. During this placebo-controlled, double-blind study, each subject received daily an additional drink containing either 6.7 mmol (167 mg) magnesium aspartate or a similar quantity of placebo (Na-aspartate)."

They found that the "NIPTS was significantly more frequent and more severe in the placebo group than in the magnesium group, especially in bilateral damages." In fact, the researchers found that the NIPTS was directly related to the amount of magnesium the people had in their red blood cells. The more magnesium they had, the more resistant they were to hearing damage. The less magnesium they had, the more likely they were to have damaged hearing.

The researchers concluded: "This study may introduce a significant natural agent for the reduction of hearing damages in noise-exposed population." It definitely is worth considering. But it's not the only nutrient you should consider taking to help your hearing. There are several other nutrients that have protective and healing abilities for your ears. These include luteolin, alpha lipoic acid, n-acetyl-l-cysteine, and many others. You can find all of these nutrients, along with magnesium in Advanced Hearing Formula from Advanced Bionutritionals.
