Bananas are a wonderful superfood which should be a staple within your diet. Potassium is a key part of the proper function of your inner ear and your potassium levels naturally deplete as you age.

Broccoli is packed full of vitamin C which promotes healthy skin as well as vitamin K and fibre. The free radicals which can cause diseases and break down our cells can be stopped by eating broccoli, including those that cause hearing related diseases.

Dark Chocolate can increase the magnesium levels of the body which will maintain blood flow to the ear. It also contains antioxidants and vitamins that aid digestion. Go ahead and grab a piece!

Garlic eaten regularly reduces blood pressure and improves circulation. It can reduce inflammation and lower cholesterol. Overall, it is not only healthy for your body but also tastes great!

Legumes such as beans and peas contain a lot of zinc, which can be helpful against tinnitus sufferers who have normal hearing. Studies have suggested that 69% of tinnitus sufferers have a zinc deficiency.

Fish is a lean, often recommended food to consume on a weekly basis. Fish is high in Omega 3 and 6 as well as vitamin D. Vitamin D can strengthen your bones to prevent ear diseases such as otosclerosis and Omega 3 is fantastic for maintaining the proper brain function for processing sounds and speech.
