Don’t waste your time and money trying Zenith Hearing X3 by Dr. Ryan Shelton of Zenith Labs because it is a scam! This review is going to be very revealing and interesting so if you’ve stumbled upon it, then thank God (or whoever shared it with you) because you have just spared yourself from losing money and time on a completely sham product. So sit down, grab your reading glasses (if you use one) and let’s begin!
Zenith Hearing X3 was launched in December 2019. It claims to be the ‘all-natural’ solution to your hearing problems. According to Shelton, Hearing X3 is ‘the perfect herbal cleanse that rejuvenates your cochlear hair cells,’ thereby restoring your impaired hearing.
Shelton says that if you’re over 40 and ‘can’t stand another day suffering from straining to hear everything around you’, then you should thank your stars because his Zenith Hearing X3 has now come to your rescue. He continues, ‘If you’re sick and tired of asking friends and family to repeat themselves, if you get frustrated when background noise drowns out a personal conversation, if your TV and lack of communication are driving your spouse NUTS … I think you’ll love what Zenith Hearing X3 has to offer.’
Before we go to the fun part of this review, let’s briefly talk about some of the claims and other facts about this supplement, shall we?
What Zenith Hearing X3 Will Supposedly Do For You
According to Ryan Shelton, here is what Zenith Hearing X3 will supposedly do to improve your hearing:
- ‘Increase blood flow to your cochlea and inner ear hair cells so they could conceivably pick up more vibrations during a conversation even at a whisper’
- ‘Reduce oxidative damage from loud noise exposure’
- ‘Help wash out the toxins that can stiffen or kill inner ear hair cells reducing your ability to detect noise below a certain decibel point’
- ‘Increase glutathione levels which helps shield you against oxidative cell damage and blood vessel inflammation created by homocysteine and cytokines’
- ‘Help those over 40 fill the nutritional gap leading to age-related hearing trouble’
- ‘Improve the health of your blood vessels by increasing the repair function of your genetic code and DNA synthesis’
So how does this supplement work in order to achieve these claims above?
Science Behind Zenith Hearing X3
Dr. Shelton was just all over the place when it comes to explaining the science behind his hearing supplement. But I’ve managed to put in order what he’s saying about how Zenith Hearing X3 works:
According to Shelton, the reason why you’re experiencing hearing problems as you grow older is that ‘noise and toxins’ are damaging your inner ear hair cells. Then somewhere later, he claims that actually, your hair cells are dying because of reduced blood supply to your inner ear (cochlea), which houses your hair cells.
For those who do not know, hair cells are the structures in your inner ear responsible for detecting sound signals. Without them, no sound signals will be detected, let alone be transferred to the brain for interpretation.
To put it simply, Zenith Hearing X3 supposedly works by restoring the blood flow to the inner ear, which will then supply the hair cells with the nutrients required for good hearing. Oh … and when it comes to the said nutrients, his supplement’s got you covered on that one too.
Speaking of nutrients, what are the ingredients of Zenith Hearing X3?
Ingredients of Zenith Hearing X3
Dr. Shelton dedicated a significant chunk of his presentation to describing the ingredients of Zenith Hearing X3. I’m not going to bore you with too many details so here is the list of all the ingredients, beginning with the active ones:
- Gingko Biloba
- Gotu Kola
- L-5-MTHF (a form of folic acid)
Other ‘supporting’ ingredients include:
- N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)
- Vitamin C
- Zinc Citrate
- Acetyl L-Carnitine
- Alpha-lipoic acid
- Vitamin A
Dr. Shelton quoted all manner of scientific studies to prove the effectiveness of each of the ingredients listed but as I said earlier, I won’t bore you with all that. Besides, none of these ingredients have any direct effect on your hearing. Most of them are touted to have effects on your cardiovascular system which, as far as I know, has no direct influence on your hearing health.
Moving on now to the fun part. Why is Zenith Hearing X3 a scam?
1. Dr. Ryan Shelton is Fraudulent and Untrustworthy
Dr Ryan Shelton, ‘NMD’ calls himself a ‘primary care physician’ and a ‘leader in anti-aging medicine’ who practices in Hawaii. But there’s a big problem with the qualifications and trustworthiness of this doctor, which we’ll discuss below:
You see, Dr. Shelton has been caught lying about being an MD physician (like me) while actually, he’s not. A Contra Health Scam reader sent me evidence of Dr. Shelton posing as an MD on the website of his health products. Then when he got caught, he changed his qualification to ‘NMD’ (Naturopathic Medical Doctor), which is not a thing. Apparently, he wants the word ‘Medical’ in his qualification so badly…
Anyway, check out the evidence below:
Also as you can clearly see above, Dr. Ryan Shelton is also involved in birthing one of the biggest health scam empires the web has ever seen. More on that later but first:
2. Zenith Labs is a Shady Company
Zenith Labs claims to be ‘a team of health professionals with a revolutionary approach to natural supplements.’ Among other claims, Dr. Shelton says in the video presentation that Zenith Labs is ‘NSF certified.’ On top of that, he claimed that all the supplements manufactured by his company are made in an FDA and GMP-certified facility using the strictest methods of cleanliness and what-not.
However, all those claims are false. In fact, a Contra Health Scam reader went as far as emailing FDA and NSF to confirm these claims, and below is what they said:
So as you can see, Dr. Shelton is lying through his teeth. Can’t say I’m surprised, especially when the next thing we’ll talk about next is true:
3. The People Behind Zenith Labs Were Also Behind Scam Empire Spark Health Media
Perhaps the most damning evidence that we’re dealing with a scam is the fact that Dr. Shelton’s Zenith Labs is the direct successor to the now mostly-defunct scam empire called Spark Health Media.
For those who don’t know, Spark Health Media was the company behind some of the biggest health scams on the web. Contra Health Scam has been credited for being instrumental to the eventual demise of this empire, as my reviews of their numerous popular scams (eg Vedda Blood Sugar Remedy, Outback Vision Protocol, and Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol) went viral and got shared far and wide. Speaking of Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol, you can see Dr. Shelton’s mug prominently displayed on the checkout page of the program’s website, indicating that the good doctor was indeed the mastermind behind Spark Health Media. Also, you can see his face proudly displayed, fake MD title and all, on the older version of Spark Health Media’s website.
So believe me when I say that Dr. Shelton is not the kind of ‘doctor’ you can trust. He’s a crook whose products must be avoided at all costs!
4. Sparse, Untrustworthy Testimonials
Zenith Hearing X3 features only one testimonial on its website. Even though the photo used in the testimonial is untraceable, it’s still not enough to prove that this supplement works. I tried searching online for testimonials, only to be bombarded with obviously fake reviews from paid shills and/or review websites run by Zenith Labs to promote their product. The feedback I got on my Facebook page concerning the product, however, is overwhelmingly negative. Again, I’m not surprised, and you’ll soon know why in the next section.
5. The Scientific Basis of Zenith Hearing X3 is Rubbish
As I mentioned earlier, Dr. Shelton claims that impaired blood supply to the ear is the main cause of hearing loss and tinnitus, and his supplement will restore that blood supply to your inner ear hair cells and subsequently improve your hearing. But there is a problem: To date, there is no evidence proving that reduced blood supply to the inner ear hair cells causes hearing loss or tinnitus. However, this hypothesis is still popular because it makes logical sense. But objectively speaking so far, I haven’t seen any demonstrable evidence that supports it.
Dr. Shelton also claims that ‘noise and toxins’ also cause the death of hair cells, thereby leading to hearing loss. Specifically, he claims that noise actually generates the toxins that damage your ear:
That’s a lie. Excessive noise doesn’t create harmful toxins. It just bends the hair cells … and the hair cells always need to be straight for you to hear properly [CDC]. Also, isn’t it hilarious that a ‘primary care physician’ doesn’t know that the cochlea is NOT the same as the eardrum? For those who do not know, the ear drum is the membrane that separates your external ear from the middle ear. Ear wax usually collects on the side facing outside, while the inner part is connected to the malleus, one of the three bones present in your middle ear collectively called the auditory ossicles.
I can’t believe that I have to explain this elementary stuff to a licensed primary care physician!
