Quietum Plus is a dietary supplement for the treatment of tinnitus, which is a condition that causes ringing in the ears. The manufacturer describes the supplement as a “natural blend” that “supports a peaceful life.”
But does Quietum Plus contain research-backed ingredients for the treatment of tinnitus? Does it even make sense to take a dietary supplement for tinnitus? Does Quietum Plus contain any unhealthy additive ingredients? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of this supplement?
In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we review the ingredients in Quietum Plus based on medical studies to give our take on whether or not the supplement is likely to be effective.
We’ll also share real, unsponsored Quietum Plus customer reviews and share some of our concerns about how the product is marketed.
Quietum Plus contains 18 active ingredients, some of which are shown above. As you’ll note in the above image, there is no ingredient dosage listed. There is also no ingredient dosage listed in the Amazon product listing.
It’s a sign of a low-quality supplement brand in our opinion when the ingredient doses are unlisted, because this information is necessary for consumers to ensure the efficacy and safety of a supplement. Supplement manufacturers are also required by the FDA to list ingredient doses.
We are unable to identify any clinical trials showing the above-listed ingredients to be effective for the treatment of tinnitus. We can’t even find any studies testing them for this purpose, and the manufacturer of Quietum Plus cites no medical studies proving them to be effective.
Vitamin A may be effective for the treatment of tinnitus, especially in those with a vitamin A deficiency, according to a medical review on tinnitus treatments published by the National Academies Press. However, the researchers noted that it’s unsafe to supplement with vitamin A at high doses because it’s a fat-soluble vitamin so there is a risk of overdose, and there are no dosages listed in Quietum Plus.
Zinc is included in Quietum Plus and is frequently included in tinnitus supplements but we can’t find any evidence of its efficacy. A 2016 medical review on zinc supplementation for the treatment of tinnitus concluded the following: “We found no evidence that the use of oral zinc supplementation improves symptoms in adults with tinnitus.”
Quietum Plus not only fails to publish ingredient doses, but also fails to publish an inactive ingredients list. Inactive ingredients include things like the capsule material, preservatives and flavoring agents. As we discussed in our review of another supplement that fails to publish inactive ingredients called Quantumind, it’s a consumer safety issue to omit this.
Consumers may have allergies to certain inactive ingredients and may wish to avoid certain inactive ingredients like added sugar for health reasons. We urge the manufacturer to publish this vital information, and we recommend that consumers avoid supplements without a clearly-published inactive ingredients list.
Overall we consider Quietum Plus to be potentially effective for the treatment of tinnitus due to the inclusion of vitamin A. However, we would not recommend this supplement due to the questions over ingredient doses and inactive ingredients.
But there’s another, potentially more important reason why we would recommend avoiding Quietum Plus which we’ll discuss in the next section.
Our Concerns About ClickBank Products
Quietum Plus uses an affiliate marketing platform called ClickBank to promote their products. This platform allows essentially anyone to sign up and promote health products without any pre-approval process.
A TikTok user named “connor_auld” shows how easy it is below to start promoting a health supplement on ClickBank:
@connor_auld Follow for more side hustle ideas!🔥 #sidehustle #entrepreneur #hustle #workfromhome #debtfreecommunity #smallbusiness ♬ Sunroof - Nicky Youre & dazy
This creates an incentive structure that is harmful to consumers in our opinion, because it allows people with zero medical or scientific qualifications to promote health products and make specific health claims that may be untrue.
As we noted in our review of another ClickBank product called Glucotrust, every Illuminate Health review we’ve published on a product promoted on ClickBank has been negative. We recommend consumers be wary of ClickBank products. You can scroll to the footer of a page to determine if it’s a ClickBank product or not, because the disclaimer shown above is required in such cases.
Real, Unsponsored Quietum Plus User Reviews
Quietum Plus is sold on Amazon, which is a more objective resource for customer reviews than a brand’s website in our opinion.
The product has been reviewed over 75 times with an average review rating of 2.6 out of 5 stars, which is one of the worst average Amazon ratings of any brand we’ve reviewed on Illuminate Health.
The top positive review from a verified purchaser comes from a user named “David Donnelley” who gives the product a 3-star rating and claims it’s somewhat effective:
“Have not noticed much....but today 4 I detect a lower level of tones. God I pray this goes away....”
The top negative review from a verified purchaser is written by a user named “Deanna Rebetti Moody” who claims the supplement is entirely ineffective:
“I developed tinnitus a couple of months ago. A friend of mine said she saw this video with somebody who claimed to be a doctor, he probably wasn't LOL, claiming that this stuff works and she thought well it's worth a try. So I agree and tried it. It hasn't worked in any way shape or form it has done absolutely nothing. Do not waste your time do not waste your money this stuff does not work! It's really sad that so many people are out for a buck and they will deceive and lie people and make them think that something will work when it actually doesn't just to make a buck”
Quietum Plus also has a highly negative rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, with a 1-star out of 5 rating. All eight total ratings at the time of publishing this article are negative, with several reviewers claiming the brand is a scam that doesn’t work.
Unfortunately, we can’t identify any unsponsored video reviews of this supplement from real users on YouTube or TikTok, but will update this article with any if they emerge.
Can Ginkgo Biloba Help With Tinnitus?
The only herbal supplement we can find significant medical backing for in regard to tinnitus is ginkgo biloba.
A medical review published in the International Tinnitus Journal found that “ginkgo biloba may somewhat improve tinnitus.” Ginkgo can improve blood flow to the brain, so it potentially improves ear health and function by improving circulation, but the exact mechanism of action is still unclear.
Illuminate Labs sells a Ginkgo Biloba Extract Supplement which is third-party tested to ensure label accuracy, potency and purity, and which contains no questionable additive ingredients. The subscription price for our ginkgo supplement is only $15.
Several vitamins were shown to be associated with improved tinnitus outcomes in the medical review on tinnitus cited in the ingredient analysis section of this article. Therefore, it may be worthwhile for consumers wanting to support ear health to take a multivitamin, especially if they eat an unhealthy diet.
Our top multivitamin pick is Future Kind Vegan Complete Multivitamin, because it contains an effective dose of various vitamins and minerals and is entirely free of questionable additive ingredients.
Because tinnitus is multifactorial in nature, we would recommend speaking with a doctor prior to any treatment (either via medication or supplements). Sesame is an online health platform that can quickly and conveniently match patients with doctors, and a doctor may recommend bloodwork that can help get to the root cause of the issue.
We’re not suggesting that either of the supplements in this article should be used for the treatment or prevention of any disease; rather, simply sharing clinical trial data that may be useful for consumers.
