Uterine fibroids are a health condition that can affect the quality of life of up to 80% of women by the age of 50, because of the high occurrence of moderate to severe symptoms. Therefore, new medical research is constantly in development, with the goal of finding safe and effective treatments for this common condition. In particular, in the last few years, clinical studies have shown how natural remedies can effectively reduce both the size and volume of uterine fibroids, while also reducing symptoms. According to this scientific evidence, some natural remedies such as Vitamin D and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), have proven safe and effective for uterine fibroids management.

Alternative treatments for uterine fibroids: natural remedies 

Vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients for the human body, because of its many beneficial effects. It is mainly produced by our body through sun exposure, but we can also get it through our diet. In fact, it is present in high amounts in foods such as marine fish and fortified foods. 

According to recent studies, Vitamin D has a high level of influence on immunity and it can help reduce the risk of chronic illnesses and malignancies. Vitamin D has also been shown to help stabilize and inhibit the growth of uterine fibroids, while also reducing associated symptoms.

Another important natural element that has shown impressive results for the treatment of uterine fibroids is green tea extract. In particular, green tea contains a catechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which has also been proven beneficial for the management of uterine fibroids. EGCG has biological characteristics such as anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative (anti-growth), and antioxidant effects, which influence uterine fibroid growth and related symptoms. In fact, it has been proven that EGCG can stabilize and even reduce the size of uterine fibroids. According to clinical studies,  patients treated with oral EGCG supplementation for a period of four months had a 30% reduction in fibroid volume and a 30%+ improvement in symptoms. As a consequence, green tea extract and, more specifically supplements containing high amounts of ECGC, have become a trusted natural remedy for uterine fibroids.

Based on the scientific evidence, dietary supplements containing both EGCG and Vitamin D are highly effective. In particular, the unique combination of EGCG (300mg), Vitamin D (2,000 IU) and VitaminB6 (Delphys, Lo.Li. Pharma International), dosed twice a day for four months, has been shown to reduce the size and volume of uterine fibroids, improve symptoms, and improve overall quality of life.

Thanks to constant research and ongoing clinical trials, natural remedies for uterine fibroids are being recommended by physicians more often, especially early on in the course of the disease, giving patients a safe, non-surgical treatment option.
