For a long time, weâ € ™ ve heard that there is less and exercise more beneficial to our health, weight and fitness. Now researchers from the University of Florida and the University of Wisconsin found that limiting the amount of food you eat can also save your hearing.





Scientists have long known that the whole life span of an organism can be extended with a calorie-restricted diet. But a new study published in the latest issue of the journal Cell, has discovered a new protein, called SIRT3, which is produced when the body gets fewer calories than usual. This protein reduces the destructive action of free radicals have on the human body, including the ears thin membranes, and thus may slow age hearing loss.



Age related hearing loss is caused by the death of nerve cells and the hair in the inner ear, and these cells do not regenerate themselves, which means that hearing loss is constant. This study not only provides some guidelines on how we can take better care of your health and your hearing, but also provides a new target for anti-aging drug therapies and potential drugs and supplements to slow age-related loss of hearing. The â € œIf we can find drugs, or dietary measures that activate SIRT3, we can slow the aging process in mammals, the â €, study author Thomas Prolla said. in the auditory system, resveratrol, which is found naturally in plants such as grapes and nuts, as has been shown, to effectively reduce the noise-induced hearing loss in rats, and is another area of research continues. Research projects such as the ongoing value, with millions of people around the world affected by hearing problems, such as single-sided deafness and tinnitus.
