A study published in the American Journal of Medicine suggests drinking coffee may help diminish the annoying ringing in the ears that one in five people experience. A report in the Institute for Natural Healing described research atBrigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston tracked over 65,000 women over the course of 18 years. Researchers foundthat women who drank the most coffee lowered their chance of developing this common problem by at least 15%.
Tinnitus is a symptom of other ear conditions that include circulatory disorders, injury, and age-related hearing loss.
“Researchers found that women who drank at least 150 mg of caffeine a day—roughly the amount in a single cup of coffee — were 15% less likely to develop tinnitus after 18 years. Women who drank 450 mg of caffeine — about three cups of coffee — or more daily reduced their risk by 21%.2 But researchers can’t explain why,” reports Natural Healing.
