Can Seafood Help Your Hearing?

It’s no secret that most hearing loss occurs as we get older. As a result, research is always being done to examine how to preserve our hearing as we age. One of the big questions is what types of foods can help prevent hearing loss; and for us today, the main question is, “Can seafood help your hearing?”

Hearing Loss and Diet

Many studies and reports have been done on how to prevent age related hearing loss. Those studies usually show that a healthy diet in general will help stave off hearing loss by keeping you in good health, specifically relating to healthy blood flow. However, a recent study that focused on women and seafood showed some interesting results that might have you running off to the fish market more often. The results of the research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which involved assessment of the diets of over 65,000 women in the U.S., found correlation between women who consumed 2 or more servings of fish per week and a lower self-reported concern of hearing loss.

Does Seafood Reduce Tinnitus?

Further results relating to hearing and diet involve tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. This is a frustrating problem that is prevalent among people with hearing loss. However, studies show that eating a diet rich in zinc or taking zinc supplements can help, especially in cases where a zinc deficiency is present. There are different foods rich in zinc, but seafood is one of them, particularly cooked oysters.
