Wouldn’t that be great? Tinnitus relief with a prescription for red wine? Give her 30cc’s of vino STAT! haha… Well, the truth is, it’s the Resveratrol in wine that has these healing properties. Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound with anti-oxidant properties produced in plants like grapes and blueberries.
Resveratrol is naturally produced in plants when under attack from pathogens like fungus and bacteria as a form of self-preservation.
Interestingly enough, the pathogens that prompt their production also attack humans and because Resveratrol is not produced by the human body, their ingestion as a food supplement has been shown to benefit us in more ways than we could imagine.
Recently there is speculation that using this supplement could be a great addition to the diet for tinnitus, possibly repairing ear function and helping with tinnitus relief. Though there is no hard evidence one could make a case that it would certainly be worth a try. Learn more at resveratrol.org.
And, go home and have a nice glass of red wine after dinner
