Indications

Tinnitan® Duo from Laboratorios Salvat is a dietary supplement.

Some common disorders, such as hearing loss and tinnitus can be caused by trauma to the ear. These conditions are related to damage of the small auditory nerves which reduce blood flow and increase oxidative stress. This cascade of events disrupts functioning and causes a worsening of symptomatology. Providing neuroprotection can be of great help in minimizing the damage to the affected nerves in these conditions. In this respect, several studies (ref. 1, 2, 3, 4) describe the mechanisms of action of compounds like magnesium, Ginkgo biloba and melatonin. These compounds have  been found to have beneficial properties for People with disorders affecting the auditory nerve when taken as dietary supplements.

Tinnitan® Duo contains melatonin which reduces the time taken to fall asleep. It also contains magnesium which 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.
