Ring Relief Ultra$69 per bottle
Don’t waste your time and money trying Ring Relief Ultra by ‘Rick Franklin’ because it is a scam! In this review, you’re going to find out what this supplement is, who created it, and why you should keep your distance from it. So without wasting much of our time, let’s begin!
Ring Relief Ultra claims to be the ‘breakthrough’ that will ‘quickly silence’ your tinnitus ‘at the source.’ According to the author Rick Franklin, Ring Relief Ultra helped his war veteran father to ‘quickly and permanently’ eliminate his tinnitus. He says that his supplement cures tinnitus by ‘quickly fixing a little-known nerve malfunctioning inside the brain.’ He then finishes off by claiming that ‘99% of ear doctors’ either ‘don’t know’ about this nerve, or they are deliberately withholding this info from you ‘because it doesn’t help them sell you expensive hearing aids.’
Franklin also claims that his supplement cures any type of tinnitus no matter your age and how severe. He claims that the old Buddhist monks in Thailand have been using this miracle remedy for over ‘2000 years’ to get rid of their tinnitus and as a result, many of them ‘in their 70s, 80s and 90s’ have been living a tinnitus-free life.
Well we’ll see about that later but let’s briefly talk about the backstory, shall we?
Backstory of Ring Relief Ultra
Mr Franklin tells us a sad story of how his son almost drowned in a pool because his tinnitus-stricken war veteran father, who was tasked with watching the boy, couldn’t hear his cries for help. Happily though, Franklin was able to intervene in the nick of time to save his son and understandably, the boy’s grandfather felt very bad for almost letting his grandson die. But Franklin places the blame for the near tragedy on his dad’s tinnitus and swears to get the cure for it. Apparently, he got this motivation not just because of the near tragedy but because his dad was threatening to kill himself because of what his tinnitus is doing to him.
As a PhD holder in botany who has worked in healthcare, doing research isn’t a problem for Mr (or ‘Dr’) Franklin. First, he experimented with the traditional audio training programs and stuff … only to find out that whenever his dad ‘missed a day’ of listening to the training programs, ‘his tinnitus came back with a roaring vengeance’, putting his poor dad into more misery. Angry and frustrated, Franklin resolves to use his expertise on researching ‘exotic’ plants to ‘eliminate it for good.’
Franklin contacts his ‘old colleague … Mr Kim Lee’ who tells him that the elderly people in Thailand don’t suffer from tinnitus because of one particular fruit that they consume daily as tea. According to him, the people of Thailand have been using this fruit for ‘2500 years’ to treat tinnitus. Now what’s this wonder fruit? Pomelo (Citrus maxima).
Long story short, Franklin and Kim Lee move to Thailand to research on the miracle fruit and with the help of one ‘biochemist’ named ‘Dr Hemsworth’, they manage to come up with a formula that eventually completely cured Franklin’s dad of his tinnitus. He then tested it on other tinnitus-stricken veterans, who all got completely cured. Now they want you to get cured too by buying their miracle formula packaged into a supplement called Ring Relief Ultra.
Science Behind Ring Relief Ultra
According to Franklin, the reason why you have tinnitus is because one ‘little known nerve’ in your cochlea (inner ear) has been damaged. He then blames inflammation as the culprit behind the ‘nerve’ being damaged.
Franklin goes on to claim that this inflammation damages the ‘little known nerve’ (which is actually the cochlear nerve) by blocking blood supply to the nerve. This is the same claim made by Ryan Shelton in his scam Zenith Hearing X3.
So what’s the solution? According to Franklin, all you have to do is to stop the inflammation and boom … your damaged nerve will be restored and your tinnitus gone. And achieving this feat is as easy as popping a capsule of Ring Relief Ultra supplement once or twice a day.
So what’s inside this supplement?
Ingredients of Ring Relief Ultra
According to Franklin, Ring Relief Ultra contains the following ingredients:
- Pomelo fruit (Citrus maxima): This is the main ingredient of Ring Relief Ultra. According to Franklin, this fruit contains chemicals known as citrus bioflavonoids, which will supposedly reverse the cochlear inflammation causing your tinnitus.
- Gingko Biloba
- Thai garlic
Now gingko biloba and magnesium have been shown to have some benefit to those with tinnitus. However, the available evidence is unreliable and most of those who reportedly saw improvements were in the early stages of the disorder.
Now to the fun part. Why is Ring Relief Ultra a scam?
1. Rick Franklin Does NOT Exist!
Rick Franklin says that he’s a PhD holder in botany with 30 years of experience working in healthcare and research. He also tells us that he lives in Raleigh, North Carolina USA with his wife and two children. Of course, there’s no way of verifying this information because ‘Dr Franklin’ is nowhere to be found on social media or in other scientific websites where research papers are published.
Anyway, don’t bother yourself finding looking for him because he does NOT exist. Why? Because his supposed ‘colleague … ‘Mr Kim Lee’ is just a still image from a stock video from Shutterstock.com!
Since Mr Kim Lee does not exist and given the sparse info about ‘Dr’ Franklin, there’s no way I’ll ever believe that we are dealing with a real person. Oh, and by the way, this finding completely rubbishes the backstory I described above. The backstory never happened!
If you still don’t believe me, I have more:
Rick Franklin’s Father Does NOT Exist
Recall that in the backstory, Rick Franklin told us that his father was a retired Army Ranger who served in the Korean and Vietnam wars. To prove it, he showed us this photo supposedly of his father and his team:
Unfortunately for him, this photo was actually taken during World War II in Los Negros Island, Papua New Guinea. On top of that, the soldiers in the photo were not Army Rangers, but Alamo Scouts … and they were fighting the Japanese, not the North Koreans or North Vietnamese forces. Add this to what we are told by Rick … and you’ll realize that we’re dealing with a liar!
If you’re still not convinced, here’s another one:
‘Dr Hemsworth’ Does NOT Exist
Remember ‘Dr Hemsworth’, the so-called ‘biochemist’ who helped Franklin and his ‘colleague’ Kim Lee to develop Ring Relief Ultra? Well he’s just a stock photo you can buy from Adobe Stock.
So yeah, Rick Franklin definitely does NOT exist!
2. Fake Testimonials With Stock, Stolen Photos
All the testimonials featured in Ring Relief Ultra are fake because they are all made using stock and stolen photos. Here they are:
- ‘Steve V.’ from Idaho is actually a man named Lester Slate (the photo has now been removed though)
- ‘Pam W.’ is actually a stock photo you can buy from Dreamstime, Fotosearch, Adobe Stock and 123RF;
- ‘Gerald F.’ is actually a stock photo you can buy from Adobe Stock, Panther Media, Dreamstime, Big Stock Photo and iStock.
Anytime you see stock photos or stolen photos being used as testimonials, then rest assured that you are dealing with a scam. Enough said!
4. The Scientific Basis is Nonsensical
Franklin tells us that the reason why you have tinnitus is inflammation. Well if that is true, then it’s good news because it means that tinnitus will be easily cured. Unfortunately, inflammation is only a factor in early stages of tinnitus … and most people with this condition are already in the chronic stage.
Inflammation is a body defense mechanism that may help your cochlear hair cells to heal before something bad happens like, for example, your cochlear hair cells dying (which is irreversible). So one can argue that inflammation is actually a good sign that your body is putting up a fight to stop tinnitus
Also, no research exists which shows that Pomelo fruit helps those with tinnitus. Yeah, research has shown that the fruit can fight inflammation, but that doesn’t translate to fighting tinnitus.
Finally, tinnitus is a highly complicated condition that requires expertise from trained healthcare specialists. Mr Franklin is, by admission, a botanist … and botanists are not known for researching and treating specialist-level conditions like tinnitus. So it’s unwise to fall for it, especially after learning that this ‘botanist’ doesn’t even exist in the first place!
Final Conclusion: DON’T BUY Ring Relief Ultra. It is A SCAM!
If you have made the mistake of buying this supplement, ask for your money back by filing a credit card dispute with your bank. Don’t bother contacting ‘Dr Franklin’ for your refund because you’ll never get it as scammers never issue refunds!
For now, there is no cure for tinnitus, and the available medical remedy proposed by your doctor remains the best option for now. I’m constantly on the lookout for tinnitus remedies that can help and once I see one, I’ll definitely let you know. So stay tuned!
