Foods that Help Prevent Hearing Loss
No matter what may think, if you are in the presence of too much loud noise, you WILL eventually lose your hearing. However, there are certain nutrients you can eat to help maintain your current state of hearing.
-Magnesium: In a recently conducted study, 300 participants drank a magnesium-rich drink to supplement their daily diets. After two months, their ears stayed sharper than their counterparts, even though they all worked in a job that involved loud noises. Foods rich in magnesium include peanut butter, almonds, brown rice, and halibut; As far as Miami favorites go, plantains have a lot of Magnesium, and black beans are extremely high in Magnesium content.
-Folic Acid: In another major study, people who took 800mg of Folic Acid for 3 years stopped age-related hearing loss in its tracks. Foods rich in Folic Acid include enriched grains and cereals, dark green leafy vegetables, and strawberries. South Florida favorites rich in folate include orance juice and oranges, black beans, and avocadoes.
