Zinc for Hearing Loss

beans zincSSNHL (sudden sensorineural hearing loss) is an idiopathic condition that causes people to have a sudden loss of hearing without explanation. Though doctors cannot fully explain why some people get this condition, zinc has been shown to enhance the hearing recovery of SSNHL patients. Zinc contains powerful anti-viral and immune-boosting properties that assist the body in fighting off viruses. Research has shown that when patients were given zinc, their recovery was much higher than those who did not receive the supplement. [1]

Get your allowance of zinc by stocking up on protein rich foods such as meats, fish, milk, raw cheese, beans, and yogurt. Be careful with taking too much in supplements as it can affect your body’s ability to absorb other minerals.
