Other foods rich in the nutrient include dark green leafy vegetables, brown rice, beans, nuts, meat and fish.
A study of more than 300,000 Americans found a link between iron deficiency and hearing loss.
Genetic epidemiologist Kathleen Schieffer, of Pennsylvania State University, said: “An association exists between IDA (iron deficiency anemia) in adults and hearing loss. The next steps are to better understand this correlation and whether promptly diagnosing and treating IDA may positively affect the overall health status of adults with hearing loss.”
The study examined the link between sensorineural hearing loss and conductive hearing loss.
It is believed antioxidants in the Guinness, similar to those in fruits and vegetables, are responsible for the health
