It’s so disheartening to see how many ineffective and downright suspicious products there are for tinnitus sufferers. How do you wade through the fake product to find something that actually works against tinnitus symptoms?
Unfortunately, Silence Complete looks like it was another scam. All official Silence Complete website have since shutdown and it doesn’t look like the product is sold anymore. But was there any benefit behind Silence Complete for tinnitus sufferers?
What was Silence Complete for tinnitus?
This story is incredibly interesting and may sound very familiar.
Silence Complete was created by Lloyd Greenfield, a 56-year old medical librarian from Stanford, California. As many of the other origin stories, Greenfield suffered from tinnitus himself. After trying to get help from doctors, he did his own research on tinnitus and found that tinnitus is not just ringing in the ears but a problem in the brain.
Greenfield then worked with a “genius ear specialist” Dr. Steven Campbell who revealed to Greenfield that he was working on a “secret” product that very few people know about. The two decided to band together to create this formula that gets to the root cause of tinnitus and share it with the world.
Does this sound familiar?
This story is almost identical to the story behind Quiet Mind Plus. The creator of Quiet Mind Plus Gregory Peters (who suffered from tinnitus) worked with Dr. Campbell to create an all-natural supplement which claims to completely eliminate tinnitus within three weeks.
It’s unclear if both Silence Complete and Quiet Mind Plus were created by the same people, as it seems all the names used were false. However, it’s incredible that both stories are so similar, even using the same doctors name.
How does Silence Complete work?
As with many of these sketchy tinnitus products, it’s unclear how the supplement works exactly. Silence Complete claims to fix damaged brain cell networks and calm the nervous system. It also claims that it takes hardly any time to see improvement and continues to work by repairing damaged cells in the brain. Somehow, the Silence Complete promises to also protect the user against brain disorders, although no research is provided.
Customers were told to take two capsules every day and it would “heal your tinnitus completely.” No side effects were noted in any of the Silence Complete reviews. It seems the product was only ever available online through their website and wasn’t sold through Amazon or other similar websites. It was also difficult to find any honest reviews of the product that weren’t negative.
A bottle of Silence Complete was sold for $69 and contained 60 capsules. An order of three bottles was $177 and an order of six bottles was $294. This is a great tactic to get the customer to buy more.
Silence Complete Ingredients List
Niacin or B3
You may also recognize these ingredients as they were found in both Quiet Mind Plus and Silencis Pro supplements for tinnitus. While there is debate that some of these ingredients may help, such as garlic used for some pain relief, there is no solid research or evidence that these ingredients can work to reduce tinnitus symptoms.
Was Silence Complete a scam?
There are numerous red flags around Silence Complete that it’s nearly surprising this product was once on the market.
When you search for Silence Complete Tinnitus, various reviews come up that all use similar, if not exact language. Unfortunately this is a sign that the reviews were written by the same person.
One review states: “Silence Complete is an ultra secret anti-tinnitus formula and a product of thorough medical research. The natural pill can be taken by anyone without prescription. Aside from treating tinnitus, it also protects users from other more serious problems such as Parkinson or Alzheimer’s. It is made of natural ingredients that are carefully processed to ensure quality and effectiveness.”
This is a classic example used in numerous tinnitus pitches, such as Tinnitus 911 and Silencis Pro. All of these products, and others reviewed on this website, follow a similar format:
The creator of the product claims to have suffered from tinnitus but has cured himself with his own product
Claims the tinnitus product is “ultra secret” or that the government doesn’t want you to find out about this “cure”
Usually claims their product will cure tinnitus, although currently there is no recognized cure
A natural solution that can be taken by anyone
Many also claim to “protect” users from serious conditions such as Parkinson or Alzheimer’s diseases
No clear research or trials are included. No scientific explanation as to why certain ingredients are chosen
What is also interesting is that when you read “reviews” on Silence Complete, when you try to click the Buy Now button, it directs you to a website selling a different tinnitus product, Tinnitus 911. It seems that the makers of Tinnitus 911 has since bought those links, or the company makes both Tinnitus 911 and Silence Complete. It’s worthwhile to note again that Tinnitus 911 and Silence Complete have nearly identical origin stories as well.
Tinnitus sufferers have commented online that many believe this product is another tinnitus scam and recommend others not waste their money. Even if there is a money back guarantee, it’s not worth the hassle.
One reviewer noticed that the address customers could send back their Silence Complete product in order to receive a refund was the same address as Silencis Pro: 37 Inverness Drive East, Suite 100, Englewood, Colorado, 80112.
Other than that review, all other reviews found regarding Silence Complete were written in the same language and with the same points. Many of these fake reviews also claimed that there are many reviews of Silence Complete online which share real testimonies from customers who claim that they are happy with the product. “There are users who report experiencing many of the benefits advertised, including the relief of their tinnitus symptoms and improved brain functions.” Unfortunately, we were unable to find any of these reviews, if they ever existed.
There are almost too many red flags to count surrounding Silence Complete for tinnitus. It’s upsetting to see what certain companies are willing to do in order to sell a product, especially for a debilitating condition like tinnitus.
One saving grace is that this supplement is no longer available on the market, so tinnitus sufferers won’t be wasting their money. As always, customers should be wary of any tinnitus product that claims to “cure” tinnitus while not providing any solid proof or scientific research to back their statements.
