Hey Everyone, 

I've recently begun researching supplements that aid in the treatment of H, T, and Hearing loss and have come across one manufacture named Advanced Bionutritionals that has a product called Advanced Hearing Formula. It has some of the stable supplements we normally hear about (Like NAC, and Ginko Biloba), as well as a few others: 

These are the main ingredients:

#1: N-Acetyl-LCysteine: NAC supports the body's production of an important antioxidant called glutathione.

#2: Alpha lipoic acid is both fat and water soluable and can penetrate the blood/brain barrier. It also "recycles" other antioxidants back to their active states.

#3: Acetyl-l-carnitine is an amino acid that supports energy production in the mitochondria.

#4: Gingko biloba has compounds called flavones and ginkgolides, antioxidants that help support the inner ear hair cells and auditory canal.

#5: Luteolin is a powerful antioxidant that also crosses the blood/brain barrier. It helps support mitochondrial function too.

I checked out 2 years of reviews on their website. The most recent year is filled with stellar reviews... People who's H, and T have been nearly eliminated, and even some users who's hearing has improved. The second year tells a different story however :/  Im not sure what changed, whether the positive shift is a product of an ingredient upgrade, or a branding one (or paid reviews).  

I'm curious if any of you can speak to the efficacy of this particular brand / supplement?

No clinical trials exist which prove these supplements alleviate hyperacusis, tinnitus or hearing loss.  In my view this is a waste of time and money.

Mg supplements are demonstrated as being helpful to reduce damage prior to exposure to loud noises (gunfire).  I tried it and experienced no change (after the fact).

Taurine is an interesting one to consider. This clinical trial concludes it has the potential to reverse tinnitus and hearing loss after noise induced trauma. I tried it but did not get any help with H.

Hello Everyone
My HAnd T begin in December 2018 and it was so severe that I was having panic attacks and depression and was suicidal
4 months ago I started taking B-Folcin a tablet brought from india by Mo mom for ulcers in mouth and I this medicine. Helped me previously so I started taking it and guess what after 30 days my tinnitus was getting bearable and sometime totally gone, my hyperacusis improves too , for the first time I went to see a movie with my Son and then last month I took a flight too with out any pain or increase in tinnitus.
Unfortunately I ran out of medicine and I tried very hard to find that medicine here but no luck and in one week of not taking that medicine my HAnd T stated going up
I have ordered the medicine from india and my friend is going to bring it with him next month and I will try it again
Also on another note my Dr prescribed me manganese oxide tablets and fluoride tablets for ear health and those two also increases my HandT so I stopped it and it went down to medium range now
