How to Reverse Hearing Loss

By Tuesday, 28 January 2020 04:24 PM Current | Bio | Archive

One of the major causes of hearing loss is aging. There is some evidence that the damage is not only in the auditory (hearing) nerves, but also in connections within the brain stem. Inflammation and excitotoxicity play a significant role in this condition, called presbycusis, and are often triggered by poor circulation within the inner ear and brain stem.

By improving blood flow through the tiny arteries of the nerves and brainstem, vinpocetine helps protect these delicate neurons.

Animal studies have shown that vinpocetine can prevent damage to the hearing mechanisms within the brainstem.

Studies using people with hearing loss and tinnitus (persistent ear ringing) caused by trauma found that 50 percent of those given vinpocetine within one week of the injury had a complete disappearance of the ear ringing.

A significant improvement in hearing occurred in 79 percent of these patients, and 66 percent had a significant decrease in tinnitus no matter how long after the injury the treatment was started.

A recent study found that vinpocetine could protect the hearing of animals given high doses of one of these antibiotics.

In most studies, the dose for hearing loss ranged from 10 mg twice a day to 20 mg twice a day. But because vinpocetine has a high degree of safety, even in higher doses, a dose as high as 30 mg twice a day is safe for most people.
