This study evaluated the effects of magnesium against acoustic trauma.
Tests were performed in two groups of noise-exposed guinea pigs treated either with magnesium or placebo.
The results showed that permanent threshold shifts (permanent hearing loss) were significantly lower in the magnesium than in the placebo group.
Further details can be found in the study.
