May 31, 2019 is National Save Your Hearing Day. This is a day when it is important to take some time to learn ways to protect your hearing and that of your family. Our hearing is vital, and there are ways that hearing loss can be avoidable. Frankly, this cause is near and dear to my heart as I had hearing loss in one ear. I made some significant improvements in my ear health saturating with ReMag and eventually had surgery to complete my process. I now can hear very well out of both ears.
Magnesium and Hearing Loss
For those who are looking for alternatives to improve the structure and function of their inner ear(s), I highly recommend reading Chapter 10 of Magnesium in the Central Nervous System. You can download a free PDF of this report by using the link. Here is the introduction to the article:
According to the World Health Organization, 278 million people worldwide have moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears. Besides pathologies of unknown
origin, such as sudden hearing loss and Meniere’s disease, hearing loss has so many
known causes; it would be arduous to list them all. Briefly, it can be due to the aging process, exposure to loud noise, certain medications, infections, head or ear trauma, congenital or hereditary factors, diseases, as well as a number of other causes. In noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL) or iatrogenic hearing loss (ototoxicity), sensory cell death involves metabolic processes. Pharmacological intervention to prevent or ameliorate the evolution of these hearing impairments, as well as susceptibility factors, have been studied for a number of years in animal models or in humans. Among them, magnesium seems to play an important role. Magnesium therapy is well documented because it is usually prescribed in other pathologies. Its side effects and contraindications are few and it is cheap. Magnesium, which easily crosses the hematocochlear barrier, presents neuro-protective and vasodilatory effects, and is able to limit cochlear damage. These observations have led to many investigations, the aim of them being to evaluate the pertinence of magnesium administration in prevention or treatment in such a hearing impairment. This article presents some arguments that emphasize the interest of magnesium therapy in some forms of hearing loss.
For those who wish to do more research on hearing loss and magnesium, I highly recommend you read the complete article and then reports mentioned in the references.
When I distill down my research and experience, what I can say is that magnesium accomplishes the following:
- decalcifies the small bones in the ear over time (For more information on calcification and magnesium, CLICK HERE.)
- reduces inflammation
- improves the structure and function of the cells in your ears and central nervous system
We have had many customers report that they have improved their auditory wellness by using magnesium, including subsidence of tinnitus (as a magnesium deficiency).
