Bel Marra Health Weighs in on Study that Suggests Eating Fish Helps Seniors Maintain Hearing

Bel Marra Health weighs in on new research that suggests eating fish can help seniors maintain their hearing.

Bel Marra Health (www.BelMarraHealth.com), a company that offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional products, is weighing in on new research that suggests eating fish may help seniors maintain their hearing.

According to research recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a study of 65,000 women over the span of 18 years showed a 20% lower risk of hearing loss if at least two servings of fish were included into the participants’ weekly diet. In addition, those who continued to eat fish maintained sharper hearing.

“The fact that eating fish has been shown to prevent the onset of hearing loss is a great discovery,” says Dr. Marchione, spokesperson for Bel Marra Health. “Often, hearing fades with age, making it increasingly difficult for seniors to catch full conversations without having to ask the person to repeat certain parts.”

The study also found that eating both fresh and canned fish produced positive results for hearing loss; fish contains essential nutrients that improve hearing. Eating deep fried fish, however, could actually cause more harm than good since deep frying fish removes some of the nutrients and adds unwanted trans fat.

Hearing loss affects one in three seniors—double that amount for those over the age of 85—and can have a negative impact on their social life. This problem becomes exacerbated when seniors are in crowds or trying to listen over another device such as a television set.

“Getting checked regularly by a doctor and listening to the television or other devices at a comfortable level are just a few ways seniors can maintain their hearing,” Dr. Marchione concludes. “While there hasn’t been conclusive research to show that specific foods can completely stop hearing loss from occurring, being able to slow the process by eating fish can make a big difference in adding to the quality of life for seniors.”
