What Is Tinnitus?

Your inner ear is a delicate instrument.

Sound waves hit the eardrum. The speed of the waves determines the frequency or pitch as well as its volume.

  • A piccolo, for example, will vibrate quickly.
  • The bass cello will be much slower.
  • Soft sounds move the eardrum gently.
  • Louder sounds are more forceful.

The eardrum movement causes a chain reaction through the tiny bones of the inner ear. They travel to the cochlea, a fluid-filled chamber lined with hair cells,  tiny hair-like nerves that receive and send electrical impulses to the brain. Different pitches hit different nerves, like piano strings, which our brain interprets as sound.

Loud sounds can damage the little hair-like nerves. They either quit sending messages to the brain (hearing loss) or send corrupted data (altered or sustained sounds without an external source). Your brain interprets misfiring nerves as the ringing in your ears.

Arches Tinnitus Formulas, a leader in natural tinnitus dietary supplements offers a suite of natural herbal and vitamin supplements for persistent ringing in the ears.

Celebrating 24 years in business, Arches Tinnitus Formula remains the ENT doctor-recommended product for tinnitus relief.

Dementia, Memory Loss and Tinnitus

Hi Barry,

I have been reading things about damage to the brain causing memory lost. I have tinnitus in my left ear for several years. I am 72 years old, and I am experiencing some memory loss. Is there some truth in this diagnosis, and if so what can I do to stop this damage to the brain?

Frank S.

Dear Frank,

Yes, there is some truth to this. Tinnitus does not specifically cause dementia or memory loss,  hearing loss can cause cognitive decline. Since hearing loss is the primary cause of tinnitus it can also affect memory loss and dementia.

This happens because the brain needs input from all senses. If the auditory cortex doesn’t have enough sound input it begins to shrink.

Ways to prevent or slow the progression of cognitive decline are to increase the auditory environment to keep brain cells healthy. Hearing aids will be helpful as well as Arches Tinnitus Formula.  The ingredients in ATF has been shown in clinical studies to prevent hearing loss and even restore some degree of loss over time.

Wishing you quiet times,

My ENT Says My Condition Is Permanent; How Can You Help?

Different branches of medicine have varied training. And while there is no replacing a quality ENT for many conditions, our science-backed formula takes a different approach to tinnitus treatment than you’ve experienced in the past.

As yet, it is impossible to physically repair the tiny hair cell nerves through manipulation or surgery. Instead, we use supplements for tinnitus relief and help you make any adjustments to your lifestyle that will lessen the symptoms. This holistic approach helps our clients sleep more comfortably, concentrate better, and engage in their favorite activities again.

How Will Supplements Help My Tinnitus?

Without your knowledge or prompting, your body is actively making repairs to hair, skin, organs, muscles, or bones. By taking the right supplement for ringing in the ears, you provide the optimal conditions for your body to heal itself. The extent of the damage determines how well the body will succeed, but our clients almost always see improvement.

What Are Supplements For Tinnitus?

Creating the optimal environment means giving your body all the tools to handle the physical repairs to your ears and the physiological changes you experience during extended periods of stress.

The basic building blocks of the body come in our food. If you aren’t getting enough of the proper nutrients to make the repairs, your immune system cannot fix the problem. Certain processes also burn through specific nutrients faster, so replenishing essential vitamins and minerals is vital for your success.

Supplements and Vitamins for Ringing In Ears Include:

  • According to the National Library of Medicine, ginkgo biloba extract has been documented as “an evidence-based treatment option” for tinnitus. High-quality Ginkgo Biloba increases blood flow to the cochlea, is a powerful antioxidant that can help repair the damaged nerves, and calms the over-excited “ear hair” nerves to lessen symptoms.
  • Vitamin B-complex and B-12—Stress is a significant tinnitus trigger and quickly burns through your B Vitamins. They are also water-soluble and pass through your system quickly, so replacing them daily is necessary to combat stress and aggravated tinnitus symptoms.
  • Zinc is another of our vitamins for tinnitus. In a study by the Ankara Human Research and Education Hospital, Ankara, Turkey, 31% of their tinnitus patients were zinc deficient. 82% of those given zinc saw a measurable decrease in the noise level of their tinnitus
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids reduce inflammation, another trigger of tinnitus symptoms.
  • N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a powerful antioxidant proven to help many patients recover if given shortly after the event that caused the ringing in their ears. It can prevent increased tinnitus due to noise exposure or ototoxic medications. It is less effective with long-term tinnitus.
Can I Buy The Supplements Separately?

All of these ingredients are available over the counter. Unfortunately, quality and concentration varies from brand to brand. This is especially true for Ginkgo Biloba Extract. The leaves of the amazing Ginkgo tree are expensive to process into an extract. To increase their profit, many companies dilute it or use ground leaves rather than give you a full-strength product.

Consumer Labs reported in 2007 that 75% of Ginkgo Biloba products on the market failed to meet the minimum requirements of a standardized extract. That article was updated in 2022 reporting some improvement, but 60% still failed the minimum requirement. They were diluted with less expensive ingredients.

Arches Tinnitus Formula, on the other hand, is dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality product possible. Not only did we meet the market standard, we exceeded it.

Ginkgo Max 26/7 is a higher potency, higher concentrated extract than other ginkgo extracts. It is so unique that Arches Natural Products, Inc. was granted a registered trademark by the FTC. It’s clinically proven to lessen tinnitus symptoms, giving most clients much-needed relief.

We want our customers to experience excellent results. Consequently, we give them only the highest quality supplements to help free them from the torment of tinnitus.
