Reduce the volume on personal music devices to under 70% of the maximum.
Noise-induced hearing loss can occur gradually over time by listening to loud music or being exposed to loud environmental noises. Next time you are using your earphones on a high volume, remember that you are damaging your ears!
Eat certain nutrients into your diet for optimal hearing health.
Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D: Usually found in fish, both can have positive effects on hearing loss.
Antioxidants and folic acid: You can find this in spinach, beans, broccoli, asparagus, eggs, nuts and liver.
Magnesium and potassium: Bananas, potatoes, artichokes, and broccoli are rich in magnesium and potassium..
Zinc can be found in dark chocolate and oysters. It is important to include zinc because it boosts the body’s immune system and is responsible for warding off germs that cause the common cold and ear infections.
Vitamins C and E and glutathione: Vitamin C and E can increase your overall health by reducing the chance of getting an ear infection. Vitamins C and E can be found in vegetables and in fruit.
