Omega-3's Protect Against Hearing Loss

Increased intakes of omega-3 fats may reduce the risk of age-related hearing loss, says a new study.

High omega-3 intake was associated with a significant reduction in the risk of age-related hearing loss (presbycusis) in people over the age of fifty.  Hearing loss is the most common sensory disorder in the U.S.

NutraIngredients reports:

“Other micronutrients have been linked to reducing the risk of age-related hearing loss. In 2007 scientists from Wageningen University reported that folic acid supplements delayed age-related hearing loss in the low frequency region ... Another study ... indicated a role for beta carotene and vitamins C and E, and the mineral magnesium in preventing prevent both temporary and permanent hearing loss in guinea pigs and mice.”
