Do Reishi Mushrooms help with Tinnitus?

I tried CBD but it didn't help. Someone mentioned I might have more luck with Reishi Mushrooms or Lion's Mane for tinnitus, but how true is this? 

Joel Taylor (Wednesday, July 07, 2021):

Unfortunately, there is extremely limited research into the use of Reishi Mushrooms, Lion's Mane, or any other medicinal mushrooms in treating tinnitus. Some individuals suggest that, since Reishi Mushrooms are supposed to improve microcirculation, they might reduce inflammation in the middle and inner ear, improve oxygenated blood flow, and potentially assist in tinnitus treatments.

However, there currently isn't any concrete evidence about this, and so the use of Reishi Mushrooms and Lion's Mane for tinnitus is not necessarily advised. If it works for you, then that's great, but you shouldn't look into it as a treatment for tinnitus specifically.

Tinnitus can not be cured. However, it can be temporary or persistent. Reports on Reishi mushroom curing tinnitus because of their (scientifically unproven) properties to fight inflammation are for scientific and educational purposes only. If you have tinnitus, you should always check with your physician, as they will be in the best place to help you through this journey.
