How what you eat affects your hearing

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As you age, experiencing hearing loss becomes more likely. One in three Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss. That increases in those older than 75 to one in two.

Because diet protects against high blood pressure, inflammation and other conditions, researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital wondered whether certain dietary patterns might affect hearing.

It turns out that there is a relationship between what you eat and how well you hear.

The research team used the reports of food intake to calculate scores for three healthy dietary patterns:

1) The Alternate Mediterranean diet (AMED) — The AMED diet includes extra virgin olive oil, grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and fish.

2) The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) — The DASH diet is high in fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy and low in sodium.

3) The Alternative Healthy Eating Index-2010 (AHEI-2010) — The AHEI-2010 diet is a blend of the AMED and DASH diets.

It didn’t matter which diet the participants were following — just by following an overall healthy diet, participants had a lower risk of moderate or worse hearing loss.

The three healthy diets all have one thing in common: plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, which are some of the very best sources of antioxidants.

Antioxidants are compounds that neutralize free radicals. They’ve been shown to help prevent hearing loss and help slow its progression. Some of the best antioxidants you can get come from superfruits like acai, goji berry, Hawaiian noni, mangosteen and pomegranate.

But if keeping on top of superfruits isn’t easy for you, you can find all you need in a supplement like Peak ResV+ Superfruits to get your maximum dose of beneficial daily antioxidants.
