Breakthrough EGCG and Uterine Fibroids

Uterine Fibroid - non surgical alternatives & interview with Ayman Al-Hendy, MD, PhD

Uterine Fibroids and Green Tea extract, EGCG

 The symptoms of Fibroids can vary from barely noticeable to life-threatening. Uterine Fibroids are benign tumors in and around the uterus. The quality of life can vary greatly. In principle, fibroids can be treated by medication, surgery or newer procedures such as embolization or focused ultrasound. In the case of young patients, surgeries are usually performed with the aim of preserving the uterus.

As an alternative a change in diet and the intake of EGCG may eliminate the need for drug treatment or surgery. EGCG contains two mechanisms that can support an alternative natural therapy for fibroids. It works as an anti-inflammatory and combats inflammation in the body. In addition, it inhibits the estrogen in the growths. As a result, fibroid growth may be stopped and the tumors could shrink.

What exactly is EGCG? 

Green tea contains many beneficial ingredients, including catechins. They belong to the group of polyphenols and give the green tea its bitter taste. One of the most interesting catechins is Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).

Interview and Science

The interview with Prof. Dr. Al Hendy gives an insight into possible nonsurgical Uterine Fibroid therapeutic options. Learn about the details of a successful study with Uterine fibroids, using EGCG from Green tea Extract.
-What was the size of the fibroids and what were the symptoms at the end of the study?

-Does vitamin D plays a role in combating Uterine Fibroids?
-Why are women with darker skin more likely to develop fibroids?
-What about Pregnancy and Fibroids?
-Can you take EGCG for your Fibroids?  If yes, how much and how often.
