Most of us take our overall health and well-being for granted most of the time, unless we meet someone who has lost the ability to use one of their senses. We do not tend to think about the fact that our eyes, ears, nose, and other senses require various vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and support just like the rest of our bodies do.
The sense of hearing is a great example of that. Very few people realize that the sense of hearing relies on getting the right vitamins and nutrients, just as our hearts do.
Vitamins and minerals associated with ear support and hearing function include folic acid, zinc, and magnesium to name a few. Like most organs in the body, there are nutrients that support optimal function and there are nutrients that can aid in restoring lost function.
If you are merely looking for good ear support, then a supplement that contains zinc, folic acid, and magnesium may be sufficient. On the other hand, if you are looking for a supplement to help you restore lost hearing, then supplements containing resveratrol have been shown to actually improve hearing loss and restore ear function.
Since resveratrol is found in things like red wine, this news should be music to your ears. But seriously, it is time we stopped taking our senses, like hearing, for granted and invested in supplements that support hearing as well as supporting overall health.
