Researchers evaluated the intake of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, and magnesium to see if there was a relationship to hearing loss. Those with better antioxidant and magnesium intake had significantly better hearing.

The research involved 2,592 participants aged 20 – 69 who were part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Those with higher intake of these nutrients could hear tones and frequencies better. 

Antioxidants as well as magnesium are potent defenders of healthy body structure, which includes the ears. Since many of us have a history with loud noise or loud music this study gives another reason to be adequate in these important nutrients.
