Antioxidants help against Hearing Loss
A recent study done by the University of Floridahttp://www.ufl.edu, along with researchers from the University of Wisconsin, revealed that antioxidants could help protect against hearing loss. The test identified a protein that appears to be the key cause of oxidative damage to cells, which results in hearing loss. One way to protect yourself from this oxidative damage is to eat foods rich in antioxidants.
One popular theory related to aging says that damage to oxidative cells caused by free radicals harms the mitochondria, the energy center of cells. After months and years of continual damage, proteins in the mitochondria are released and cause cells to die. This essentially leads to a host of physical effects associated with aging — including hearing loss.
Make sure to visit your local professional audiologist to see if you or a loved one suffers from hearing loss. It is important to catch the symptoms of hearing loss and treat it before its too late.
