Combat hearing loss with vitamins

If you think your hearing is mostly affected by external things, like loud noises, you wouldn't be all wrong. Your ears are very sensitive to sounds and vibrations, and they can easily be damaged. But hearing loss can also come from the inside, especially if you're deficient in these vitamins.

Vitamin A. Studies show when you don't get enough vitamin A, your ears become extra sensitive to sound. This doesn't mean you hear better, you just hear louder. This intensified noise increases your risk of severe ear damage.

Vitamin A is found in many foods. Egg yolks, butter, and liver are good sources. For a lighter twist, get your vitamin A from oranges, limes, cantaloupe, prunes, and pineapple.

Fish are a good source of vitamin A, but salmon, mackerel, and tuna are especially high in this important nutrient. Fish are also high in vitamin D, which helps prevent bone loss and may help strengthen the bones in the ear's hearing mechanism. That could mean sharper hearing as you get older.

Vitamin B12 and folic acid. Most people think getting a little hard of hearing is a natural part of aging. Recent research suggests this might not be the case. A study at the University of Georgia revealed that women over age 60 who had hearing loss also had lower blood levels of vitamin B12 and folic acid.

Vitamin B12 and folic acid work together to maintain blood flow and to keep your nervous system in good working order. Some researchers think not enough blood flowing to the inner ear can affect the electrical impulses from the ear to the brain. This could cause hearing loss.

Liver, sardines, crab, salmon, beef, and cottage cheese ate excellent sources of vitamin B12. If you want more folic acid, eat oranges, avocado, papaya, liver, spinach, pinto beans, lentils, asparagus, and beets.

Although these vitamins play a vital role in preserving your hearing, they won't reverse hearing damage you already have.
