A person with tinnitus will hear a sound, without there being an actual sound to make the noise. While it most often manifests as ‘ringing in the ears’, a person with tinnitus will report hearing a variety of sounds like buzzing, clicking, whistling, swooshing or hissing.
Nearly 50 million Americans are affected by tinnitus; it's also considered one of the most common disabilities reported among U.S. veterans of recent wars.
While the cure for tinnitus can be elusive, this formula represents a unique nutritional approach for alleviating the symptoms. Made of the most clinically studied and researched nutrients for tinnitus, it offers some hope for relief.
Niacin (Vitamin B3) has the effect of creating vasodilation, or opening of the peripheral blood vessels. This allows it to increase blood flow into the inner ear; niacin has been used for a long time in the treatment of tinnitus and Meniere’s disease.
N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) is the amino acid precursor of one of our most powerful antioxidants, glutathione. The inner ear is especially sensitive to free radicals (reactive oxygen species) - providing NAC to bolster glutathione levels can inhibit damage in the inner ear.
Vinpocetine A is a substance derived from a chemical in the periwinkle plant; its main use is to improve blood flow in the brain, thus helping with cognition. A set of older studies from the late 80’s point to vinpocetine’s ability to improve hearing and tinnitus in study subjects.
Bioflavonoids: Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone, Rutin and Quercetin are essentially plant pigment compounds with a variety of clinical effects. They can also improve circulation into the inner ear and have been used as a treatment for tinnitus.
Magnesium Citrate serves to protect the nerves of the inner ears - one idea is that glutamate (a toxic amino acid) may contribute to inner ear damage, and magnesium can powerfully inhibit glutamate.
Tumeric (Curcuma longa) contains very powerful anti-inflammatory compounds (curcuminoids) that inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), prostaglandins and the leukotrienes.
Pine Bark extract is a rich source of procyanidolic oligomers (OPCs), which have strong antiviral, antioxidant, antimicrobial and antioxidant functions. The OPCs in pine bark also prevent leaking in blood vessels while other compounds (catechin and taxifolin) stimulate the production of nitric oxide, a major vessel relaxer.
Ginger Root contains several active ingredients with anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and analgesic (pain relieving) properties.
BioPerine® Black Pepper is a patented extract of black pepper fruit that helps with absorption and increased bioavailability of nutritional ingredients by a minimum of 30%.
Tinnitus formula provides a research-based nutritional formula for the symptoms of tinnitus. The first formula of its kind, each ingredient was included based on its anti-inflammatory effects and prior use in tinnitus treatment. If you suffer from tinnitus, it’s well worth giving it a try!
