Hearing Loss, Lipoic Acid and CoQ10

Very interesting research in this article: "One of the most surprising findings was that these two — alpha lipoic acid and coenzyme Q10 — were very specific in their protection against apoptosis and hearing loss,"

"Becoming "hard of hearing" is a standard but unfortunate part of aging: A syndrome called age-related hearing loss affects about 40 percent of people over 65 in the United States, and will afflict an estimated 28 million Americans by 2030.

"Age-related hearing loss is a very common symptom of aging in humans, and also is universal among mammal species, and it's one of the earliest detectable sensory changes in aging," says Tomas Prolla, a professor of genetics and medical genetics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "

Geronova Research offers a unique R-lipoic Acid (much more effective than alpha-lipoic) and CoQ10 combination in one convenient, easy to swallow capsule.

Along with all the other benefits lipoic and coQ10 provide, you should be thinking of daily lipoic therapy as a nutritional supplement insurance policy.
