VITAEAR

PROMOTE NORMAL CLEAR HEARING
Over 15% of people worldwide experience some form of tinnitus

MECHANISM OF ACTION

This comprehensive formula provides key nutrients and herbs that specifically help to relieve symptoms of tinnitus, especially acute and chronic tinnitus related to poor cerebral circulation, adrenal depletion, nutrient deficiency and congestion.

The nutrients included are essential for healthy functioning of the inner ear (where tinnitus typically originates). The herbal extracts contained in this formula are specifically recommended for tinnitus and are based on current clinical research findings as well as traditional Chinese Medicine concepts.

Whilst the focus of VitaEar™ is to support individuals experiencing tinnitus, it may also assist with symptoms of vertigo and hearing loss.

Ginkgo biloba is a herb that is known to promote circulation to the head area. Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) tonifies the blood and is traditionally recommended for patterns of ‘blood deficiency’including tinnitus. Rehmannia (Rehmannia glutinosa) is traditionally used for tinnitus, it is an adrenal tonic, adaptogen and promotes blood production.

The nutrients included in VitaEar help to provide support to the inner ear. In particular, Thiamine (B1), Ribofl avin (B2), Niacin (B3), Pyridoxine (B6) and Cyanobalamin (B12), Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc. Supplementation with B vitamins has shown to improve tinnitus, particularly the use of B12, B6 and B5.

Magnesium supplementation has been shown to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. Iron deficiency may contribute to the onset of tinnitus.

Antioxidant nutrients in this formula (vitamins A, C, E and the minerals, Zinc and Manganese) help to prevent any free radical damage that may contribute to cellular aging possibly occurring in the inner ear and surrounding areas. Folate, vitamins B6 and B12 in this formula help to support methylation reactions. Methylation reactions are required to ‘recycle’ cells as we age and, together with antioxidants, help to slow down cellular aging that may be occurring in the inner ear and surrounding areas.

CLINICALLY EFFECTIVE

Healthy circulation to the ear is just as important as correct nutrition. Theories as to the cause of tinnitus in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) show that ‘blood deficiency’ or ‘stagnation’ or ‘congestion’, in combination with nutrient depletion is linked with chronic tinnitus. Specific Chinese herbs that ‘nourish the blood’, strengthen the body and improve its nutrition are traditionally used for tinnitus related to problems with circulation. Scientific research with Ginkgo biloba also supports this theory, with research generally agreeing that Ginkgo is an option for tinnitus that has occurred as a result of cerebral vascular insufficiency, or problems with circulation to the head area.
