Hear Loss Formula is an exceptional supplement which combines the best compounds for slowing down age-related hearing problems and helping to improve hearing, now available to buy at Supersmart.
Based on the latest scientific studies, its formulation includes molecules that promote blood vessel dilation in the inner ear, increase the production of the most effective endogenous antioxidants and combat the free radicals that affect the auditory system.
This supplement is for anyone who wants to protect themselves against hearing problems, particularly those related to age (presbycusis).
It is also designed for those who have existing hearing problems:
Age-related hearing loss is the result of inevitable deterioration of the auditory system. Over time, the 30,000 hair cells of the inner ear (those that detect sound) become damaged and are permanently lost. Like presbyopia (long-sightedness), this process starts to develop after the age of 50, with high frequencies particularly affected as it is this type of frequency which is processed by the most sophisticated hair cells.
The best way of lessening the intensity of this process is to combat the formation of free radicals in the ear. These harmful molecules, which can alter the ear’s cells, are generated by numerous factors such as smoking, excess weight, poor diet, the majority of the most popular over-the-counter medicines, and above all, noise, whether chronic or occasional (1). A number of studies have shown that excessive noise mechanically and irreversibly alters hair cells in the cochlea throughout life.
If the noise is sufficiently loud, the free radicals will cause many cells to die, producing vasoconstriction (narrowing of blood vessels) in the ear, which in turn leads to the generation of yet more free radicals (2-5), as is the case during a heart attack. After several decades, the accumulation of these cell deaths manifests in incapacitating hearing loss, though it is after the age of 50 that this all speeds up.
To counteract these processes and delay ageing of the inner ear, Hear Loss Formula draws on four strategies:
This supplement has been formulated to incorporate all the nutrients beneficial for combatting hearing problems. Strengths have been selected to ensure balance and encourage the best possible synergy between compounds.
Magnesium (in the form of magnesium aspartate) is the formulation’s most important compound. It increases the production rate of superoxide dismutase (a major antioxidant), promotes vasodilation and prevents too much calcium from being released into ear cells following acoustic trauma.
A two-month double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial has demonstrated the benefits of a daily 170mg dose of magnesium for reducing damage to the auditory system in soldiers exposed to high levels of noise.
Ginkgo biloba acts in two ways against hearing problems.
The flavonoids it contains, grouped under the name ginkgo flavonglycosides, work primarily on all aspects of the circulatory system (13). Once absorbed by the body, they help relax capillary resistance, increase blood flow to the inner ear, and combat platelet activating factor which promotes blood viscosity and inflammation of blood vessels (14-15). They also act as ‘flak-jackets’ against the oxidants that cause our hearing to deteriorate, and improve blood flow (16-17). For their part, terpene lactones (particularly bilobalides) help to consolidate the neural circuits involved in hearing. They help increase mitochondrial energy production in neurons and prevent oxidative elements from escaping.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial (18), ginkgo biloba supplementation (240mg a day) helped subjects with partial hearing loss to recover auditory capability.
The body produces an extremely efficient antioxidant for protecting against free radical-induced damage to the ear called glutathione. Unfortunately, however, production of this antioxidant is reduced by a number of pathological and environmental factors (oxidative stress, diabetes, cataracts, atherosclerosis, pollution, smoking …).
Glutathione has low bioavailability when taken orally, which is why SuperSmart has added two compounds that help the body produce more of it: alpha-lipoic acid and N-acetylcysteine.
Vinpocetine is a derivative of vincamine, a natural compound found in the leaves of the lesser periwinkle as well as in the seeds of certain African plants. It is used to treat memory loss but can also be helpful for sudden hearing loss. It acts in the same way as quercetin, by increasing blood flow in the brain (19).
In its acetylated form, carnitine helps improve nerve deterioration (20) [this property is also used to combat Alzheimer’s disease (21)].
These four vitamins are increasingly rare in modern Western diets, yet they are essential for good hearing and for preserving the integrity of the auditory system. They are also involved in a great many physiological processes, especially in the brain. Deficiency in vitamin D (which is very common during winter) can result in cochlear dysfunction in particular.
If you’re looking to make this formulation even more effective, you can take these additional measures:
1) Eat a healthier diet throughout the supplementation period.
2) Substantially increase your level of physical activity. The resulting metabolic changes will optimise brain function including that of the auditory system. To obtain these benefits, you need to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week.
3) Avoid high noise levels as much as possible and fully engage in social interaction.

Vinpocetine is derived from the natural alkaloid vincamine, extracted from the small vinca minor. It has virtually no side effects or contraindications, and has been the subject of more than 700 scientific publications in recent years, of which 200 report results from animal and human studies.
Vinpocetine's main benefit is that it supports brain metabolism, and therefore alertness, by increasing synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal energy molecule. It's also frequently used for its vasodilatory properties in sensory, hearing and visual problems of vascular origin (vertigo, tinnitus, buzzing in the ear, noise pollution, retinopathies).
According to Dr Jack Vernon, American tinnitus expert, “vinpocetine is a very promising substance”.
