Tinnitusis a common condition. There are many causes for this condition. This is because many separate conditions can affect the intricate structure of the ear. The most common cause of tinnitus is excessive exposure to loud noise or age associated tinnitus. When you experience tinnitus (especially when you were not exposed to loud noise) it is highly recommended to have a visit with your doctor in order to exclude (or confirm) more serious causes. Here are tips on how to get rid of tinnitus, or ringing in the ears.
With respect to age related tinnitus one of the most common causes is inadequate blood flow to the inner ear. The primary reason for this is atherosclerosis (i.e. fatty cholesterol plaques) and calcification (i.e. hardening due to calcium deposits) of the small arteries supplying the inner ear. Therefore it makes sense to take measures that would increase the blood flow to the ear. This can be achieved by Ginkgo Biloba, magnesium, pycnogenol, resveratrol and omega 3 fatty acids (i.e. EPA and DHA) found in fish oils.
Ginkgo. The mechanism of action with respect to tinnitus is inhibition of platelet aggregation. Platelets are small structures in blood that cause blood clotting. By inhibiting them, Ginkgo makes blood flow more smoothly and thus supply more blood to the inner ear. This brings in more oxygen and nutrients which makes the inner ear function more efficiently; thus reducing or eliminating the tinnitus.
Magnesium. Relaxes the smooth muscle that makes up the wall of arteries. This has the effect of dilating blood vessels which in turn also brings more blood to the inner ear. This is not only helpful for arteries that are narrowed by atherosclerotic plaques but also for arteries hardened by calcium.
Pycnogenol. A substance from pine bark is a powerful antioxidant. Its primary role in the context of tinnitus is that it increases the level of a substance called Nitric Oxide. This is the primary molecule in the body responsible for dilation of blood vessels. It is also the primary molecule responsible for genital erections both in men and women. Pycnogenol does this by inhibiting the degradation of Nitric Oxide and also by stimulating Nitric Oxide production. This quality can also be very beneficial in athletes for improved physical performance (dilating blood vessels brings more blood with oxygen and nutrients to muscles) as well as for individuals with erectile dysfunction.
You can find all three of these ingredients in the product Ear Tone by New Nordic.
Resveratrol also stimulates Nitric Oxide production and inhibits platelet aggregation.
Finally, fish oils containing Omega 3 fatty acids are potent anti-inflammatory agents, thus they inhibit atherosclerotic plaque formation (these plaques has a strong inflammatory component).
These are some tips on how to get rid of tinnitus, or ringing in the ears.
