It's much easier to protect your hearing at an early stage than it is to restore it later.
(PRWEB UK) 27 February 2013
Resveratrol, a chemical found in red grapes and red wine, has been found to have a protective effect against hearing loss.
Red wine is already said to protect against heart disease and dementia, but scientists at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, US, have found that Resveratrol could reduce damage to ears caused by loud noise.
They found that healthy rats were less likely to suffer noise-induced hearing loss when given Resveratrol before being exposed to loud noise for a long period of time.
The study found that Resveratrol reduced noise-induced hearing loss in rats exposed to potentially deafening sounds.
A spokesperson from Hidden Hearing said:
“In an ideal world, we'd deal with something before it became a problem. It's much easier to protect your hearing at an early stage than it is to restore it later. The awareness of the need for hearing protection is growing and we always recommend protecting your hearing in noisy environments”.
