I am sure many of you have come across various unconventional treatments for hearing loss advertised on the internet. Hopefully, you would be wary of these advertisers' claims. It would be wise to do your research and to talk to your doctor before deciding to participate in these supposed treatments.
I recently came across an advertisement claiming that their supplements can treat hearing loss by improving how the nerves in the ears transfer sound. It also claims that these supplements can prevent "dangerous molecules" from coming into your ear after being exposed to loud sounds. They did not specify what these dangerous molecules can be.
Their ingredients are supposedly supported by clinical research. Their studies have shown that 95% of users have experienced positive results.
When looking at the ingredients, I noticed that many of them can be found in other supplements and drugs that are thought to improve memory and brain functioning. Some of the ingredients are antioxidants and vitamins such as magnesium, alpha-lipoic, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12.
Their research claims that many people who took the supplement experienced positive results, which is very likely. If the supplements mainly contain ingredients that are supposed to improve brain functioning and memory, it makes sense why users will experience positive results with hearing or listening. When we are in a better mood and alert, it will appear that we hear better because we are able to concentrate well. If we are tired, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or not feeling well, we will have a harder time hearing due to lack of focus and concentration.
If you want to improve your hearing or listening abilities, rather than take these supplements, you could do it by exercising, maintaining a healthy diet, and getting plenty of sleep and rest. In addition, you could take vitamins or certain supplements that have the same ingredients found in this supplement. But, I would recommend to talk with your doctor first before taking any supplements, especially if your are taking other medications and supplements.
Please be wary of certain treatments that claim to prevent or improve hearing, especially those that claim to cure hearing loss or deafness. It is important to do the research and get the facts especially from primary sources.
