Magnesium rich foods are important for hearing! It is important to know what it can do for your hearing.

Magnesium helps with preventing and treating hearing damage – particularly noise-induced hearing loss.  It helps treat ototoxicity and sudden hearing loss damage to the ear. It protects the inner ear from  damaging free radicals.
