Prevent the Need for Hearing Aids with this Natural Supplement

In All Health Watch, Featured Article, General Health by INH Research6 Comments

Short of walking around wearing ear plugs all the time… there aren’t many ways to avoid noise induced hearing loss.

Loud noises cause free radical cell damage.1 The free radicals then cause damage to the inner ear – resulting in loss of hearing.

But what if there was a way to minimize the free radical damage?  Researchers in Taiwan set out to see if it was possible.

Researchers tested a certain antioxidant on 53 male workers at a steel manufacturing plant.2 The men had been exposed to at least 90 decibels of noise every day for an average of 16.3 years. Prior to the study the men gave blood samples and took a hearing test.

After the study, researchers took another round of blood samples. And the men took follow up hearing exams.

Sure enough, the antioxidant helped. It reduced the noise damage to the ears during the workers’ daily shifts. And they were able to hear better following work.

So what is this natural hearing aid?

It’s an amino acid called N-Acetyl cysteine (NAC).

This isn’t the first time it’s been studied either. Or proven to maintain hearing after loud noise exposure.

In another study researchers followed 363 volunteers.3 One group received an oral dose of NAC, the other a placebo. They gave a hearing test pre and post noise exposure.

Following the noise, researchers found a significant difference in the NAC group. So once again, NAC showed protective effects when it came to noise-induced hearing loss.

NAC offers much hope for the millions of people who suffer from hearing loss, and for anyone who may be in an environment that increases that chance. Such as men and women at war, plant workers, and construction workers. Or even people who live in a busy city… heavy city traffic can reach 85 decibels.4 That puts you at risk. According to the National Institutes of Health, steady exposure of 85 decibels or higher can result in hearing loss.

NAC is safe and effective. And it’s easily found at your local health food store or online. Just make sure to read the label and that you are getting N-Acetyl cysteine. There’s another supplement that goes by the name NAC. It might just stave off a pair of hearing aids and years of yelling and frustration.

  1. N-Acetyl Cysteine is also very good for minimizing viral infections, especially of the lungs.

  2. How much of N-Acetyl cysteine do you take for hearing loss?

  3. Acetyl Carnitine, mixed with Co-Q10, and Omega-3 oil, such as flaxseed oil,is used for macular regeneration, but it would work equally well for other circulatory problems, such as hearing loss!

  4. I also work with my clients with Bloodfruit a combinations of Anti-Oxidants with polyphenols and cell membrane circulation helpers in a Liquid complex that you drink a small amount each day..any circulation problem helps..Ears and kidneys are connected..Blood flow to these organs is essential, to also elminate dizzyness and offbalance issues
