There is no evidence that any supplement can help treat hearing loss. Deficiencies in some vitamins and minerals (including folate and vitamins B-12 and D) have been associated with greater risk of developing hearing loss, but supplementing with these nutrients has not been shown to prevent hearing loss related to aging, although there is preliminary evidence that some supplements may help prevent noise-induced hearing loss.

Supplements that have been evaluated to prevent hearing loss include alpha-lipoic acid, magnesium, N-acetyl-cysteine, and vitamins C and E.
