Tinnitus 911 is said to be a "cure all" to tinnitus, but is it really? Will this supplement really perform miracles and get rid of that annoying ringing sound in your ears... or is true what some people are saying... that Tinnitus 911 is a scam?
They say that 90% of tinnitus treatments out there do not work, but will this one finally do the trick? Is this the treatment you have been waiting for like they tell you?
Well… In this review I'm going to be going over everything you need to know about this particular supplement. Will it work? It might, it might not. There is no doubt that this is a very overhyped product that isn't the miracle is claimed to be, however there are some upsides to it and some users will likely see positive effects after taking it.
In this short review I'll cover what exactly it is, some of the claims made and red flag is raised, I'll go over each of the ingredients, what real users are saying about it, complaints and more.
What Is Tinnitus 911?
So as you are probably already well aware, Tinnitus 911 is a supplement that is intended to treat tinnitus.
What is tinnitus? It's is something else you are probably well aware of, or at least I would assume so, but it is a condition that involves ringing in the ears when there is not any auditory sound present. Basically it is your ears playing tricks on you and in some cases can be incredibly hard to deal with.
The reason I am reviewing Tinnitus 911 in the first place is because there are very bold claims made about this supplement. It is promoted as a sort of "cure all" and this is very hard to believe since tinnitus can have many different causes.
Overall, based on my research I think that this supplement does have the potential to work for some people, but it is not something that I am recommending and you will see why throughout this review.
There are probably several different video presentations out there promoting Tinnitus 911. Maybe you came across one or maybe you didn't.
The promotional video I came across was presented by some guy named "Charlie Gaines" who supposedly suffered some tragic story about how he lost everything and then stumbled upon some 100% natural cure to tinnitus. He tells you that everything in the story is true, but this is a lie in of itself.
I'm not going to discuss the entire sales pitch and everything that was said in the ridiculously long video presentation, but basically he claims that this 100% natural cure you came across works flawlessly and can even work with in a few days.
Also, in addition to fixing your tinnitus problem, it also reduces or even eliminates degenerative brain problems such as dementia.
But as I said, when he tells you that the story is true he is lying.
There are a heck of a lot of red flags throughout the promotional video and if you watch to yourself I am sure you agree with me on this. It just seems a little bit too good to be true and is definitely a bit unbelievable.
Also, I did some thinking around and found out that "Charlie Gaines" himself is actually not who he says he is. I've reviewed similar overhyped products with ridiculous sales pitch is in the past, so I knew what to look for. I ended up doing a reverse Google image search for the man showed in the video presentation and found that is actually nothing more than a stock photo that anyone can purchase online…
In other words, this is NOT "Charlie Gaines".
After figuring this out for myself, I found that they actually tell you this in the disclaimer at the bottom of the sales page. As you can see below, they actually tell you that Charlie Gaines is just a pen name…
So what can you believe and what can you believe? Or the ingredients in this supplement even going to do anything for you?
Well… Let's take a look…
A Look at the Ingredients
You can see a screenshot I took off the ingredient label below…
Will these ingredients fixture tinnitus once and for all? I'll go over each of them individually… One thing you will notice is that pretty much all of these ingredients are packed with antioxidants. This is good because tinnitus is sometimes caused by damaged structural and functional cellular components due to free radicals, which antioxidants fight against.
- Vitamin C (60mg)
- We have all heard of vitamin C before, but is it going to be the cure? Well, I did find a reference to study that shows patients taking an antioxidant rich cocktail of natural ingredients, including vitamin C, was able to reduce tinnitus.
- Vitamin C is needed for a lot of things in your body, some of which include the formation of blood vessels, muscle and cartilage. It is also a powerful antioxidant and its antioxidant powers may be what make it somewhat effective as a tinnitus treatment.
- Vitamin B--6 (5mg)
- Vitamin B-6 it is important for cognitive development, immune system function, protein metabolism in the heck of a lot more. According to the National Institutes of Health it is involved with over 100 enzyme involved reactions
- There is some controversy surrounding whether or not it helps. People on the Tinnitus Talk forum claim that it can possibly make some people's tinnitus worse. It it is rare, but I guess some people can have negative reactions if they take too much and have to limit themselves
- Niacin (2.5mg)
- This it is just a fancy name for it vitamin B3, which helps with healthy cholesterol levels, is good for your skin, and is important for proper brain function.
- The reason this could be an effective treatment for tendinitis is because it helps to increase blood flow to small areas like the inner ear.
- Folic Acid (100mcg)
- Folic acid helps in the production of new cells and is very important for red blood cell production.
- I did find a bit of information about how this benefits tinnitus, but the source was not very reliable and seemed to be too focused on promoting another tinnitus supplement. But of course this doesn't mean that it does not work or help.
- B-12 (100mcg)
- Vitamin B 12 is something that I was able to find some scientific information on relating to tinnitus. There was a study of 139 elderly patients, of which 58.3% had tinnitus. Of those who had tinnitus there was found to be a significantly lower amount of vitamin B12 levels, suggesting that deficiency in this vitamin could lead to this horrible condition.
- On the downside, this only provides you with 100mcg per dose, which although is more than the daily recommended value, really isn't all that much because this vitamin is verily poorly absorbed. Some people recommend taking as much as 1000mcg per day just so that you can absorb the recommended value.
- Garlic (150mg)
- The idea behind putting garlic in this supplement is that it will help improve your condition by increasing blood flow to the cochlea, which could be the cause of your tinnitus
- Hibiscus Flower (100mg)
- Hibiscus is packed with loads of antioxidants, it helps lower blood pressure, boosts your liver health, however… I can't find anything directly related to how can help with tinnitus
- That said, the fact that is packed with antioxidants alone should have a positive effect
- Olive Leaf 18% Extract (125mg)
- Olive leaf extract can help boost your immune system, worked as an anti-inflammatory and then antioxidant, and is even said to help fight herpes
- One of the referenced articles I looked into was on MedlinePlus.gov, where it was suggested that it could help treat tinnitus. However, they suggested that it be applied topically and I don't know how well it would work being ingested.
- Hawthorne Berry 1.8% Extract (175mg)
- While I can't find any direct evidence on this ingredient relating to tinnitus, it does have a lot of antioxidants in it so it does have potential
- Buchu Leaves 4:1 Concentrate (25mg)
- Buchu leaves can be used to treat inflammation, urinary tract infections, and even STD's.
- There it is definitely a lack of scientific information on this particular ingredient, so there is not all that much I say.
- Uva Ursi 4:1 Concentrate (15mg)
- I wasn't able to find any good information on this ingredient either, but one thing, which was rather fondly, that I came across was that taking too high of doses can actually cause tinnitus. I found this information on ScienceDirect.com
- Juniper Berry (15mg)
- another ingredient common in folk medicines - used in treatment of a variety of conditions - infections, digestion issues, skin deformations, joint pain, etc
- often sold in the essential oil form and did find some information on how it can possible help to relieve tinnitus
- Juniper Berry is in ingredient that is common in folk medicines. It is used to treat a variety of conditions including infections, digestive issues, skin deformations, joint pain, and more.
- This it is often sold in the essential oil form and that did find some information on it being able to relieve tinnitus, but I'm not sure how well it will work being digested.
- Green Tea 50% Extract (15mg)
- We all know what green tea is and you are probably well aware of its powerful antioxidant benefits, which are often said to help fight against aging and can even promote a healthier mind.
- With lots of antioxidants this ingredient is something that is nice to see and could potentially have a positive effect
Will These Ingredients Work?
While most of the ingredients included in this supplement are either proven to work to some extent, or at least have potential, this is not the "cure all" miracle supplement that is promoted as.
One thing that you have to realize is that many people, who are suffering from tinnitus, are already benefiting from many of these ingredients. Vitamin C, vitamin B6, niacin, folic acid, vitamin B12, garlic, and green tea are all things that many people probably already get enough of… Yet you still might have tinnitus. So what's the deal?
I'm not saying that this supplement is not going to work, but I am saying that it is overhyped and isn't going to be a sure way to cure tinnitus.
Luckily there aren't really any side effects that are going to have to worry about. This is a 100% natural supplement and there are no "crazy" ingredients included that are going to make your body wonder what the heck is going on.
All in all, this is a very mild supplement.
Of course I do have to say that you should always talk to your doctor first before taking something like this however.
What Real Users Are Saying
What are people who have actually taken the supplement saying about it? Are they all saying that it has cured there tonight is in that is the greatest thing ever?
Unfortunately… The answer is no.
This supplement is actually sold in a number of places, including on Amazon. On Amazon I skimmed through the reviews and found that many people are saying to avoid it, calling it things like a scam and an "expensive hoax"…
There are some people that claim that has worked for them, but all in all… The reviews are not that great on this product.
Beware of Fake Reviews!
Which brings me to my next point… Beware of the fake reviews!
I came across quite a few different fake reviews out there claiming that this is the greatest tonight's cure to ever exist. However, the people making these reviews are just promoting it so that they can make a quick buck.
Take for example the YouTube video I found below. The woman in this video claims that Tinnitus 911 is the greatest and that it cured her tinnitus, yet she is actually a paid actress that is available for hire on the website Fiverr (a digital freelance marketplace)…
And this is just one example… There are plenty more out there.
Scam or Not?
Is it a scam like some of the other tinnitus products I've reviewed?... like for example Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol?
I would not call Tinnitus 911 an outright scam, because I do believe it has the potential to work for some people. It is packed with a lot of good ingredients that are very high in antioxidants among other things that could possibly have a positive effect on tinnitus.
The "scammy" part about it all is how it is being promoted. It is promoted in a very misleading way and giving people false hope. That is why I am warning people about it. It depends on how you look at things but in some ways this is a scam in my opinion.
Why I Don't Really Recommend It
Not only do I not really recommended because of the deceptive promotion going on for this product, but it is also rather expensive and without a doubt overpriced.
For example, on the official website it costs $69.95 for one bottle, but when you order four bottles the price per bottle drops down to $49.95.
How is it even possible that they have this much room to move the price around… Dropping it down from $69.95 to $49.95? The answer is that it was massively overpriced in the first place.
That said, if you are desperate and want to give Tinnitus 911 a chance and see if it works for you, you can purchase Tinnitus 911 on the official website here.
