Nutrition, vitamins, and health are top of mind for many these days. The right foods and nutrients can give us more energy, reduce our risk of cancer, protect against heart disease, promote healthy sleep, and so much more. If you listen to the headlines, there even seems to be a perfect combination of vitamins and minerals for everything, whether you want to boost heart health, reduce anxiety, see better, run longer, or even stave off those pesky undereye circles and creases.
What about when it comes to hearing health? Is there a perfect combination to hear better and prevent hearing loss? The short answer is possibly, but the verdict is still out.
What should I eat for hearing health?
While more studies are beginning to explore direct links between vitamins, minerals, and hearing health, they are still limited and haven’t always agreed on what the best choices may be. Whether the studies were small and did not reflect larger populations or the results of animal studies did not hold true in human studies, there’s no doubt that more research, on a larger scale, is needed before concrete links can be made.
With that said, there are still some nutritious choices out there that are showing promise in reducing the risk of hearing loss and promoting healthy hearing. Consider adding these options to your plate today, even as you wait for more answers from the nutrition and hearing health experts.
The verdict may still be out on how effective these vitamins are for our hearing and preventing hearing loss, but don’t let that stop you from savoring them as part of your healthy diet.
