Combination Supplement May Aid Uterine Health

Uterine myomas, also known as fibroids, are an accumulation of numerous benign, nodular growths or tumors, consisting of muscle and connective tissue, that may form in or on the uterus. A recent study suggests that supplementation with vitamin D and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) (a polyphenol found in tea) may help reduce the volume of uterine myomas.

Participants in the study included 30 symptomatic women with uterine myomas. They were given 25 micrograms of vitamin D, 150 mg of EGCG, and 5 mg of vitamin B or a placebo twice daily for 4 months. The researchers assessed the volume and number of uterine myomas via transvaginal ultrasonography. They also administere4d questionnaires to evaluate severity of symptoms and quality of life.

Participants in the supplement group saw a 34.7 decrease in total uterine myoma volume, compared to a 6.9% in the placebo group. They also saw a reduction in severity of symptoms and improvements in quality of life.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Messina. It was published in the March 2020 edition of the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences.
