5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), magnesium citrate, Ginkgo biloba extract, melatonin, zinc and vitamin B.
TINNITAN® DUO from Laboratorios Salvat is a dietary supplement.
Some common disorders, such as hearing loss caused by trauma to the ear, tinnitus, etc. are related to damage of the small auditory nerves due to a reduced blood flow and an increase in oxidative stress, which may alter their function and cause or worsen the symptomatology.
Providing neuroprotection can be of great help in terms of minimising the damage in the affected nerve in these conditions.
In this respect, several studies (1,2,3,4) describe the mechanisms of action of compounds like magnesium, Ginkgo biloba and melatonin and have found them to have beneficial properties for people with disorders affecting the auditory nerve, when taken as dietary supplements.
Due to its content in melatonin, TINNITAN® DUO contributes to the reduction of time taken to fall asleep, and due to its content in magnesium it contributes to the normal function of the nervous system.
TINNITAN® DUO also contains 5-HTP, an aminoacid precursor of serotonin and melatonin; it also contains vitamin B5 and B6 which help to accelerate the transformation of 5-HTP into serotonin.
Box of 30 capsules.
1 white capsule in the morning with breakfast and 1 blue capsule before going to bed.
