HERBS FOR HEARING
Eat herbs for hearing health! Make sure to include plenty of herbs in your meals to keep ears and hearing sharp. Use the power of foods & nutrition to maintain good hearing.
Include these herbs for healthy ears and hearing:
Basil: A magnesium-rich herb. Our ears rely on magnesium to function correctly. Magnesium helps prevent inner ear damage and keeps blood vessels healthy for the inner ear to work properly.
Dill: Rich in Zinc, this herb aids your immune system. Zinc can increase our inner ear’s resistance to age-related hearing loss. *Important for boomers!
Oregano: High in anti-oxidants, this herb helps to control free-radical damage to our nerve tissue in our ears and brain.
Tumeric: High in potassium – an herb vital for our ears. As we age, our potassium levels may drop and can contribute to age-related hearing loss. Potassium is important for converting sounds into signals for the brain to interpret
Herbs are easy to add to your meals:
> Mix with other greens for a nutritious salad
> Sprinkle into soups or stews
> Add to your favorite marinade or sauce
> Sauté with vegetables.
