Folic Acid / Vitamin B12 - Age-Related Hearing Loss Prevention
A 2017 Study showed that when a person has high homocysteine levels it affects hearing loss. It also found the role for nutritional supplements as a potential way of preventing age-related deafness. Subjects included elderly who was found apparently healthy following repeated examination by physicians.
Studies have also shown that hearing loss is as much a nervous system condition as it is an ear condition. High homocysteine levels have been found to be associated with blood-vessel and nervous system damage.
Folic Acid is a B vitamin necessary for cleaning homocysteine from the blood. Studies have found that people over 60 years old who had normal hearing had normal homocysteine levels and those with hearing loss had low folate levels. This suggests that reducing homocysteine levels with Methyl Folate could potentially reverse ongoing hearing loss.
In another study involving about 3,000 people over the age of 50 years; those with high homocysteine levels were 64% more likely to have hearing loss than those with low homocysteine levels.
Lowering homocysteine levels can also help prevent conditions like Strokes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
CONCLUSION: Serum folate was significantly lower among the elderly with ARHL.
