      Tinnitus Since:
      I have been suffering from T on and off for years, I have tried a number of solutions, and Just looking for silence, not sound generating machine to mask it.

      I have tried taking magnesium 25 Mg, and that did make it much better for a few weeks, but it seems to come back with a vengeance.

      Has anyone heard about any nutrition suggestions. I am game for anything!
      Thanks, I am glad to have found this site

      Hi, Jack, and welcome!

      There are many people on this forum who have tried a number of supplements and nutritional approaches for their tinnitus. We're all different, so what may work for one person may not work for another, but here is a list of some things you can try. Some of us have experimented until we found something that seems to work for us:

      - Limit caffeine (coffee, colas, teas, chocolate).
      - Limit sugar in your diet.
      - Limit gluten in your diet.
      - Limit sodium in your diet.

      Supplements to experiment with:
      - Gingko biloba
      - Magnesium (you might try different types of magnesium; I use magnesium chloride, which works for me).
      - Fish oil
      - Vitamin B-12, or try taking a vitamin B-complex combo pill
      - Niacin
      - Vitamin D
      - Zinc
      - Vinpocetine
      - Pharma GABA
      - Holy basil
      - Pycnogenol
      - Moringa oliefera

      These are all worth a try, to see how they affect you. It's best to just introduce one new supplement at a time, to see what works. Others on this forum may have additional suggestions.

      For some people, however, it doesn't seem to make much difference what sort of diet they have, or what supplements they try. We're all different, with different causes for our tinnitus.

      I'll be interested to hear if any of these suggestions work for you.

      Best wishes,
