Are You One of the 26 Million Driving Your Partner Nuts? The Common Health Issue Destroying Too Many Relationships
Bob (not his real name) is driving Debra crazy. He retired a few years ago. But Debra (also a pseudonym) wasn’t bothered. She still had a few years to go before her retirement. So she saw Bob evenings and weekends mostly.
She hardly noticed when Bob started raising the volume on the TV. Or when he asked, “What?” to half the things she said to him.
Then Debra retired. And they spent every day together… all day. That’s when she realized Bob didn’t understand a lot of what she said to him. Even with the volume way up, he missed a lot of what was said on TV. And when they went out to eat, Debra almost always had to explain to the server that Bob was “a little hard of hearing,” so the server didn’t get too frustrated.
Before long, Bob noticed Debra was growing impatient. She snapped at him more and seemed stressed out most of the time. What neither of them realized at first was that Bob’s hearing problem wasn’t just Bob’s problem. It was slowly driving Debra to her wits’ end.
Countless Millions With Perfectly Good Hearing Suffer From Hearing Loss
University researchers estimate 26 million Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 suffer with hearing loss.1 Plus millions more aged 70 and up – where the rate of hearing loss is even higher.
But these people aren’t alone in the suffering. Studies show spouses and families also suffer. Hearing loss lowers the quality of life for sufferers… their spouses… their friends… and other family members.
And that doesn’t count the friction hearing loss causes for retailers, restaurant staff, public servants, and the millions of others those with hearing loss encounter every day.
A recent review from Britain’s University of Nottingham points out how serious the problem really is. Some 300 million people suffer the direct consequences of hearing problems. But those around them – especially their partners – suffer, too.
Missed phone calls… misunderstood conversations… shouting… social awkwardness. Plus, partners of people with hearing problems report feeling guilt for growing angry or impatient with their spouse.
Like Debra, most partners of someone with a hearing problem report communicating leaves them feeling “drained.”2
But this is hardly the first study to reach this conclusion.
Way back in 2004, a study published in The Journals of Gerontology found “Spouse hearing loss increased the likelihood of subsequent poorer physical, psychological, and social well-being in partners.”3
That’s right. The partners of those with hearing loss suffer physically, psychologically, and socially.
A small 2008 study also echoed this study’s results.4
The bottom line? Your – or your spouse’s – hearing problem affects a lot more people than you may realize.
Which is an especially good reason we developed Tympanol.
Build Your Defenses Before Trouble Develops
Almost everyone is at risk of hearing loss. Did you attend dances or concerts in high school or college? Did you work at a noisy job – such as factory or construction work – during your career? Have you ever commuted through normal traffic?
If you answered “yes” to any of these, you’re at risk of hearing problems. And they’re just a handful of causes. Military service could damage your hearing. So can frequenting sports events. Have you ever listened to music through headphones or earbuds? You’re probably at risk, too.
If you’re one of the lucky few who haven’t noticed hearing trouble, congratulations. But keep in mind this change can be so gradual, you may not notice your hearing issue until it’s too late.
The best time to defend against hearing problems is before the trouble reaches the stage it affects your quality of life.
And that’s exactly why Tympanol may be the easiest, most effective option for defending your ears’ delicate hearing mechanism.
Because Tympanol’s unique formula helps defend against the most common causes of hearing problems.
Turn Your Circulatory System Into a Nutrient Superhighway
Good circulation means you can deliver oxygen and key nutrients to delicate tissues. Opening up your arteries is like going from a rural road to an Interstate highway. And Tympanol delivers the goods in this department.
Ginkgo biloba is well known as a circulation booster. Especially for your brain and head. Tympanol gives you the Ginkgo boost… plus the proven power of vinpocetine.
Now, you may not be familiar with vinpocetine. But it’s a name worth remembering. It has a remarkable effect on circulation.
Vinpocetine is an extract of the vinca minor plant. Also known as periwinkle. That’s right. Gardeners use periwinkle, as a groundcover anywhere there’s enough shade. It’s cheap and attractive.
And it has an amazing ability to boost circulation… especially in your head.
Just look at the results of these studies:
- 2004 – Mexican doctors show vinpocetine defends against damage to the cochlea – a key organ of your inner ear.5
- 2007 – A review of studies found vinpocetine boosts oxygen, improves circulation, and raises mental capacity after circulatory problems in the brain.6
- 2007 – A Hungarian study finds vinpocetine boosts blood flow to the brain enough to improve overall cognitive function.7
- 2008 – An animal study suggests vinpocetine may defend against hearing damage at remarkably low levels.8
- 2011 – Doctors in India find vinpocetine is effective… and safe for long-term use.9
- 2013 – University study shows vinpocetine improves oxygen status in brain.10
In simple terms, vinpocetine is the defender you’ve been looking for. Studies show it boosts circulation to key areas of the brain… defends against nerve damage… and helps deliver key nutrients.
Vinpocetine alone might make Tympanol a winning formula for hearing support. But we didn’t stop there. We also included key nutrients often missing from your daily diet.
The “Hearing Nutrients” the Mainstream Overlooks
Has your doctor ever mentioned magnesium when he or she talked about hearing? If you’re like most people, the answer is “no.” Yet magnesium – a mineral critically short in many diets – is key to healthy hearing.
For example, look at a 2006 French study. The study found magnesium is often overlooked… but plays a key role in maintaining hearing. It both boosts circulation and defends sensitive nerve cells against damage.11
Chinese doctors discovered magnesium levels are linked to your risk of hearing loss. The lower your magnesium levels, the greater your risk of hearing trouble.12
And a whole range of studies show antioxidant vitamins lower the risk of hearing problems.
For instance, a 2015 U.S.-European study found antioxidant vitamins and magnesium boost blood flow and lower the risk of hearing trouble.13
Truth be told, antioxidant vitamins and minerals can have a potent effect on your hearing. And it’s easy to boost your intake of these key nutrients. Yes, the mainstream won’t make a lot of extra money from these cheap nutrients… but they could help save your hearing.
A 2014 Korean study of U.S. vitamin and mineral intake was revealing.
The study looked at 2,592 adults aged 20-69. Those who had higher intakes of magnesium and antioxidant vitamins also had a lower risk of hearing problems.14
Could hearing protection be as simple as getting more antioxidants? Well, maybe not, but that certainly appears to be an important step. Meanwhile, less common options – like vinpocetine – appear to offer the biggest bang for your buck.
And here’s where the really good news comes in.
Unusual Doesn’t Mean Expensive
You won’t find vinpocetine in most hearing health formulas. But that doesn’t mean it has to break the bank. Unlike the mainstream, we don’t charge an arm and a leg just because an ingredient isn’t common.
That means Tympanol is well within everyone’s reach. Even better, you can prove it for yourself with zero risk.
That’s because Tympanol comes with our full-year satisfaction guarantee. We promise you’ll love the results, or we’ll buy it back.
How can we make this kind of promise? Because we take them ourselves. We use the latest science to develop every one of our formulas… and we update them as the science grows.
So we’re confident you’ll get the best results available from Tympanol… and from every formula we offer. Or we'll buy it back.
Plus, the more you buy, the more you save… up to 20% off the single-bottle price. Or save even more with our Smart Ship option.
And it’s all covered under the same satisfaction guarantee. So you never face any risk.
Unless you don’t act. Because studies show hearing problems cause serious problems in most relationships.
Don’t wait until your relationship is on the rocks. Get the maximum natural defenses for your precious hearing… order Tympanol today.
Yours in continued good health,
