Lipoflavinoid is a dietary supplement sold over-the-counter as a treatment for tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and Meniere’s disease. It was first created by the New Jersey-based company DSE Healthcare Solutions. Lipoflavinoids are comprised of the bioflavonoid eriodictyol glycoside (found in lemon peels), along with vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12 and B6, vitamin C, panthothenic acid, inositol, choline, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin.
The vitamins and minerals in the supplement are found naturally in many foods. However, it can be difficult to get the necessary amount of them from a regular diet. Vitamin deficiencies can also be caused by pregnancy, illness or poor nutrition. That is where a supplement comes in to deliver the necessary dosage levels to help combat tinnitus and other health conditions. Foods that are rich in these supplements include citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, limes, nectarines and peaches.
Lipoflavinoids can be very beneficial in helping to combat tinnitus. The key ingredients in the dietary supplement work to block the histamine production inside your inner ear, which potentially causes inner ear disturbance. The other ingredients help to prevent excess fat deposit accumulation in the blood vessels, in particular the inner ear’s small capillaries. This helps to improve circulation by keeping the inner ear’s microscopic hair cells flexible, which allows them to properly transmit sound waves. It also helps improve the flow of fluids in your ear canals. Enhancing circulation is the major benefit that these supplements have because is one of the main causes of tinnitus.
These nutrients normally come in caplet form, but can also come as liquids, capsules, tablets or even injections. They are an over-the-counter non-prescription supplement that is furnished by several different manufacturers. Before starting to take lipoflavonoids, you should consult with your doctor and disclose your medical history, any other vitamins or supplements you are taking along with informing him of any heart condition or high blood pressure. Always follow the directions provided in terms of dosage amounts and frequency.
