any vitamins that improve hearing?

Post  shaftless on Sun Oct 09, 2016 7:05 am

There are natural reasons why our hearing goes as we age. But are there any vitamins or foods/herbs that may help? Probably not but just curious.

For preventive hear-loss measures Vitamin B3 works well, I recommend non-flush version called Niancinamide. B3 increases SIRT3, as does Resveratrol. Don't overdo Resveratrol, you should aim for 100-200 mg daily.

Rationale:
"They found that deleting the SIRT3 gene in the mice cancelled any protective properties of NR. Additionally, the researchers demonstrated that a new strain of mice that were engineered to express high levels of SIRT3 were naturally resistant to noise-induced hearing loss, even in the absence of NR."

From this, the researchers observed that NR successfully prevented damage to the synaptic connections in the mice, preventing both long- and short-term hearing loss.. NR is a precursor - protected cochlea nerve cells from being injured.

Thanks for the replies. It's not for me but for my mom. She in her 80's and it's obvious that with age everything goes. The trouble is she doesn't like hearing aids. So was just wondering if certain foods or herbs might help. Might get her to try the vit 3.

gingko is good for tinnitis, and tinnitis(ringing in ears) is likely a contributing factor for hear loss in aging.

At that age it may be a drop in aldosterone levels, this affects the ability to hear.

Or, it maybe a decline in IGF-1, which could also effect hearing.

Would suggest she go on zinc and hope for the best. To look into the first, would need to test for aldosterone.
