It might be strange to think that eating the right foods may help your ears, but certain vitamins and minerals may help to prevent hearing loss, or at least delay it. The healthy-diet foods on this list should be paired with plenty of mental activities and physical exercise for best results.

Antioxidant-rich foods, such as broccoli, nuts, spinach, and asparagus may help to cut your risk of hearing loss by as much as 20%. Antioxidants reduce the amount of free-radicals in your body, malicious little organisms that can damage the tissue of your inner ear.

Magnesium may help to protect against noise-induced hearing loss, although it’s not a replacement for protecting your ears from extended loud noises. Magnesium can be found in bananas, broccoli, and potatoes, among other foods.

Omega-3 fatty acids may help to strengthen the blood vesicles in your ears, delaying age-related hearing loss.

Eating a well-balanced diet is the cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. In general, a healthy lifestyle will help to keep your ears healthy and your hearing strong for years to come. If you want to learn more about how to improve your hearing either naturally or via a hearing aid, contact the ear professionals at Orlando ENT.
