Tinnitus is a condition where individuals experience a whistling in the ear, or constant ringing or squealing noise. It’s very off-putting and makes hearing challenging. The most common cause for tinnitus is damage to hearing nerves located in the inner ear. This can be triggered by stress from excessive noise exposure or other factors, including various diseases. As a result there is often a decline in blood flow throughout the ear, causing in a reduction in oxygen and nutrient supply.
Since citrus flavonoids have anti-inflammatory properties and also lower blood lipids, taking these compounds can help protect the vessels of the sensitive inner ear. Similarly, vitamin E also helps to safeguard the inner ear cell walls from free radical damage and lowers lipid levels.
Studies have shown that a combination of citrus flavonoids, coenzyme Q10 and the amino acid L-arginine is particularly effective for supporting the treatment of tinnitus, hearing loss and dysfunction. L-arginine is especially beneficial for improving blood circulation, reducing blood pressure and supporting the flexibility of arteries. Regularly taking a quality supplement containing these natural compounds can help to minimise the effects of tinnitus, as well as supporting overall health and well-being.
