Ring­ing in the ears?

National Post (National Edition) - - FINANCIAL POST -

Tin­ni­tus is a con­di­tion linked to hair cells in the in­ner ear. These cells vi­brate in re­sponse to sound and then sig­nal our brain. But when the cells be­come dam­aged, through in­fec­tion or loud noise, the cells send a con­stant stream of sig­nals to the brain, which are in­ter­preted as ring­ing. The prob­lem can ac­cel­er­ate over time and ul­ti­mately cause deaf­ness.


Re­cent stud­ies have shown, that although tin­ni­tus is con­sid­ered non-cur­able, there is some re­lief to be found, and it’s linked to blood and nu­tri­ent flow. 1. MAG­NE­SIUM is needed to help main­tain nor­mal nerve func­tion in the ear. Stud­ies have shown good re­sults in the re­lief of tin­ni­tus when high enough amounts of mag­ne­sium were avail­able. In a pub­lished 2011 study sci­en­tists found that at 532 mg of mag­ne­sium a day, the “tin­ni­tus sever­ity im­proved sig­nif­i­cantly”. * 2. GINKO BILOBA & PINE BARK are known plant in­gre­di­ents that help en­hance blood - and nu­tri­ent flow to the in­ner ear, some­thing that, when lack­ing, is a com­mon cause of tin­ni­tus. Pine Bark es­pe­cially, is show­ing strong re­sults in re­liev­ing tin­ni­tus. A 2010 study found that pine bark at high dosages low­ered tin­ni­tus by be­tween 41 and 62% in just 4 weeks.** New Nordic’s Ear Tonetm prod­uct is a nat­u­ral sup­ple­ment that con­tains these three im­por­tant nu­tri­ents in the ben­e­fi­cial dosages, shown to help re­lieve the per­cep­tion of tin­ni­tus in the ears. Ear Tonetm is avail­able at par­tic­i­pat­ing phar­ma­cies and health food stores. For more in­for­ma­tion or to pur­chase on­line, please con­tact us at 1-877-696-6734 or visit www.newnordic.ca
