Coffee May Help Alleviate Annoying Ringing in The Ear

Tinnitus is the bothersome condition of ringing or noise in the ear. It affects approximately 1 in 5 people. A recent study suggests that drinking coffee daily could lower incidences of tinnitus in women.

Participants in the study included more than 65,000 women between the ages of 30 and 44 who did not have tinnitus at the onset of the study in 1991. The participants completed a lifestyle and medical history questionnaire every two years and food frequency questionnaires every four years.

After the 18 years of follow up, 5,289 cases of tinnitus were recorded. When the researchers examined the data on coffee drinking, they found that women who drank between 450 and 499 mg per day (or approximately five 8 oz. cups), the reported incidences of tinnitus were 15% lower than women who drank less than 150 mg per day (approximately one and a half cups).

Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on March 6, 2014 in the American Journal of Medicine.

Previous studies have shown that coffee has a number of health benefits. These benefits are generally attributed to the powerful antioxidants found in coffee called polyphenols and include reducing the risk of developing diabetes, prostate cancer, cirrhosis and oral cavities.

One note to coffee drinkers: be careful how you take your coffee. A double latte with whipped cream and three sugars may provide the health benefits seen here, but the high fat and sugar content can have other negative effects.
