Tinnitus symptoms can improve with Pycnogenol antioxidant therapy

Tinnitus is the medical term for an aggravating condition where sound is heard that’s produced from within the ear canal rather than from outside of it. Over 44 million Americans suffer with this disorder.

This internal sound is often described as ringing, buzzing, humming, swishing or whistling. The sound may be continuous or intermittent.

While tinnitus is not completely understood, it is frequently correlated to some type of injury to the ear. Common culprits are loud or prolonged noise exposure or ear infections. Meniere’s disease is a more serious condition which has tinnitus symptoms accompanied with extreme vertigo.

Antihistamines or antibiotics often relieve tinnitus or Meniere’s symptoms. However, millions of people have not experienced relief from those treatments.

Several studies using antioxidants have shown promise for tinnitus symptoms:

  • A 2007 study found idiopathic tinnitus significantly improved after 18 weeks of using a mix of oral antioxidants (including Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and beta-carotene).
  • A pilot study observed that tinnitus suffers with low levels of CoQ10 had reduced symptoms after supplementing with CoQ10 for 16 weeks.
  • In 2003 a study of 25 volunteers with Meniere’s found 91% had fewer vertigo episodes & 44% experienced improved hearing after 2 months of antioxidant use.
  • A 2010 study of 92 people with mild to moderate tinnitus noted significant improvement after 4 weeks of consuming 150 mg. of Pycnogenol® daily. Pycnogenol was observed to enhance blood flow to the cochlear. Higher amounts of Pycnogenol produced greater results.

Inadequate amounts of antioxidants can prevent or impede healing. Use of oral antioxidants can improve cellular function and enhance overall health. Antioxidants and nutrients are much easier to absorb if they are in an isotonic state because they don’t require lengthy digestion. Isotonic supplements provide up to 95% of their value in minutes versus the average 10-20% nutritive value which makes it to the bloodstream by the time tablets or capsules are digested.

Isotonix® has the only form of isotonic capable trademarked Pycnogenol® on the market. As an antioxidant Pycnogenol® is 50 times more potent than Vitamin E and 20 times more potent than Vitamin C. Isotonix OPC-3® is a synergistic blend of Pycnogenol®, Grape Seed, Bilberry, and Citrus Bioflavonoids.

All of the Isotonix® products are powders that, when mixed with the appropriate amount of water, become delicious drinkable isotonic solutions.

    I’ve suffered from Tinnitus for about 25 years. Recently my symptoms have all but disappeared. I am grateful, but was curious as to why after all these years, I have relief. After reading about this study, it was apparent to me that it has to be the OPC-3. Not only has it helped with these symptoms but my Plantar Fasciitis that I had for 5 years has disappeared. It’s also great for my arthritis with it’s anti-inflammatory proprieties. It’s a GREAT antioxidant! What sets it apart is its isotonic delivery. Can’t beat it! The proof is the science behind it. Along with “feeling” the results, it’s busy repairing all the cellular damage that we aren’t even aware of as we face our daily living. All of the ISOTONIX supplements are backed with science. I’ve tried A LOT of different products and ISOTONIX by far, have delivered like no other! Discover for yourself the AMAZING results. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

    It is normal for anyone to experience having their ears ringing at some point, for short periods and at an infrequent rate. But if someone experiences hearing a buzzing ear sound as a continuous and everyday occurence, then that might be tinnitus. The person suffering from such must visit the ENT specialists to determine if it can be healed with proper therapy or with other tinnitus treatment.

    I am of a different opinion. Be swift to hear, slow to speak. 🙂
