The Science ofProactive Daily Ear Health

What it is

Lipo Flavonoid Proactive Daily Ear Health is a daily supplement formulated to mitigate the risks of future ear health issues such as loss of hearing, balance issues, ear ringing (tinnitus) and ear infections.

Nutrition plays a key role in the health of your inner ear but beyond reacting to ear health issues and working to treat the symptoms there hasn’t been much that healthcare professionals can do to proactively prevent them—until now. We have developed a supplement to get your ears the nutrients they need in a cost effective, over-the-counter once daily supplement with all the key ingredients ears need limit future ear health issues.

How it Works

B Complex (Vitamins B1, B6, & B12)

A Vitamin B Complex made up of B1 (thiamine), B6 (pyridoxine), and B12 (cobalamin), which are essential for maintaining a healthy nervous system. These neurotropic B vitamins act as coenzymes and protect nerves from damage, helping ensure the different auditory, balance and special signals ear needs to transmit reach the brain. Deficiencies in these vitamins can lead to neurological diseases or malfunctions, but even without a proven deficiency, supplementing them can even improve certain neurological conditions.

L Methyl Folate

L Methyl Folate is important for our ears because it helps prevent premature hearing loss by improving cochlear homocysteine metabolism and reducing oxidative stress by increasing nutrient delivery and absorption in the cochlea. A lack of Folate in the body is often caused by the liver being unable to properly process it from the food we eat. But this ingredient does not need to be converted in your liver, bypassing it and going directly to the bloodstream instead; ensuring you’re not missing essential nutrients.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba is the workhorse of this formula because it helps potentially inflamed areas of the head and ear improve blood flow, helping inner ear functionality and ensuring the other ingredients are able to reach the areas they need to in order to be effective. It is believed to improve blood flow throughout the inner ear by dilating blood vessels and reducing blood viscosity, which can enhance circulation to the small capillaries and hair cells in the ear. It also has antioxidant properties that can protect against oxidative stress and reduce inflammation in the inner ear, which may contribute to hearing loss and other inner ear disorders. Additionally, Ginkgo Biloba may improve neurotransmitter function in the brain and enhance cognitive function, which can help with processing sound and improving overall hearing ability.


Bioflavonoids have over 60 years of clinical use in relieving vertigo and tinnitus symptoms. The eriodictyol glycoside found in bioflavonoids can improve microcirculation and prevent fatty deposits in the inner ear, while also potentially blocking histamine production. Additionally, hesperetin, a derivative of eriodictyol, can prevent neurodegenerative diseases by reversing the factors that cause them, such as oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. Its ability to inhibit apoptotic cell death makes hesperetin a promising drug for preventing and treating neurodegenerative conditions.

Particularly vitamin B1 (thiamine), B6 (pyridoxine), and B12 (cobalamin) contribute essentially to the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. Their importance is highlighted by many neurological diseases related to deficiencies in one or more of these vitamins, but they can improve certain neurological conditions even without a (proven) deficiency”.
