Tinnitus is commonly referred to as "Ringing in the ears", a condition where the unfortunate sufferer experiences a constant whining noise that changes in pitch, or sometimes noise that is described as a roar, which can't be heard or measured by anyone else. Over a long period, the noise can become very upsetting or annoying to the patient, leading to lack of sleep and depression, and it may even interfere with the person's hearing.
Researchers discovered that a substance extracted from lemons, grapfruit or oranges, know as "citrus bioflavonoids" contained a compound known as eriodictyol glycoside, and proved to be helpful for tinnitus patients. Theses bioflavonoids, combined with vitamin B6 and B12 (B complex), vitamin C, niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, choline, inositol and panthothenic acid has been shown to aid in maintaining inner ear health and improving microcirculation in the ear.
One scientific study looked at eriodictyol glycosidase in people with Meniere’s Syndrome. An overwhelming majority of the 122 people said it relieved their dizziness and the ringing in the ears. In another study, 1,220 people with hearing loss were given bioflavonoid complex along with a multiple vitamin. Forty percent of the people studied claimed that their hearing improved significantly. Hearing also improved when 160 people with Meniere’s Syndrome were given citrus bioflavonoid, ascorbic acid, and vitamin B in another study.

When the circulation in the inner ear is improved, the microscopic hairs responsible for transmitting electrical impulses of sound to the brain stay flexible and fluids within the ear canals flow better.
