Antioxidant and Magnesium Prevent Hearing Loss

Antioxidant vitamins and magnesium and the risk of hearing loss in the US general population  [Am J Clin Nutr. 2013] – PubMed – NCBI

Man Sad

The number of Americans with hearing loss has nearly doubled over the last 30 years. 3 out of 10 people over the age of 60 have hearing losses and those from 41-59 nearly 15% have a hearing problem. That is why it is exciting to see that a nutritional approach can be effective in hearing loss prevention.

This study looks at magnesium and the antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C and Vitamin E and their effects at preventing hearing loss.

The researchers found that while the individual nutrients helped when all combined together they have even a greater or a synergistic effect. The intake of these nutrients was associated with lower risks of hearing loss.
