Diet For Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus often occurs in our daily life and the reason of this is because of the illusion of the auditory system. Some people always feel the buzzing sound in their ears and they should pay more attention to their daily life particularly with respect to the diet. Tinnitus experts said that it is important for patients to develop some good habits, and consume some suitable food in the treatment of tinnitus.

It is well known that abundant vitamins are contained in milk like vitamin a, vitamin d, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin e, and beta-carotene which can improve the nervous system of the body. Also, some food which can promoting blood circulation to dilate blood vessels is also a good choice. They can effectively improve the blood viscosity and help to maintain a small blood vessels in the normal ear micro-circulation. These food mainly include black fungus, leek, red wine, rice wine, and so on.

Iron deficiency is also easily to make red blood cells harden and thus weaken their ability to transport oxygen and other nutrients to ears which impair the cell functionality and result in hearing loss. Iron supplements are effective in preventing and delaying the occurrence of tinnitus and deafness in the elderly. For both men and women over 45 years old, the daily iron intake should not be less than 12 mg.

There are many factors leading to tinnitus and deafness in the elderly, and zinc deficiency could be one important one. Generally, zinc level within the cochlea is significantly higher than other organs. For older persons over 60 years old, the zinc content within the cochlea is significantly reduced which may affect the functionality of the cochlea and thus lead to hearing loss. So, zinc-rich foods such as fish, beef, chicken, eggs, seafood, apples, oranges, walnuts, cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbages, carrots etc should be added to their daily diet.
