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).

Reviews for Tigovit Green Tea Complex
I have now taken the capsules regularly, as prescribed, and was totally happy when my gynecologist found out at the last appointment that my fibroid had gotten smaller! So I can highly recommend it!
Sandra Zavaglia, Germany 2018
A long path of suffering with endometriosis and fibroids lies behind me. After 2 operations, the pain became so severe almost a year ago that my doctor promised me that I would soon beg for the total operation. The green tea capsules from Tigovit were my last chance. I have been taking 3 capsules a day for almost a year (in conjunction with turmeric) and after just four weeks I was about 98% symptom-free. The endometriosis and fibroids have shrunk extremely since then. I’m excited. I am also not so tired anymore and have a lot more energy.

Uterine fibroids occur in 80% of women over 45 years old- most of us don’t know we have it and live with excessive bleeding, lower back and abdomen pain, bloating without knowing we have uterine fibroid(s). I had ultrasound and they found 10cm uterine fibroid. BOOM! OB suggested right away hysterectomy as he was offering me side of fries with my burger! After refusing such invasive solution he mentioned ECGC ( green tea) could help. I’ve researched for days until I found this gem! I chatted with the seller ( who is the distributer for this German company) and she explained all about this product and company. Not your regular seller chasing $$! She is super passionate about this product and very knowledgeable. I have been taking 1 pill 3xday and after 4 months ultrasound showed the fibroid have shrunk to 7.1cm. That is 30% smaller in just 4 months!!! My OB was in shock and couldn’t believe such success with natural product wventhough he was the one to suggest it. You have to remember that caffeine is a big offender for UF and this one has the smallest amount of caffeine in the market. Plus has better absorption due to including Bioperine.
Another benefit is that I lost 15 lbs in 4 months which is added benefit of ECGC! No excercize – just this product.
Remember, great effective products don’t need ads, so when you see products pop up on top of your search, the seller paid for it. Also, you have to carefully read reviews hopping they were written by real people. I was not compensated in any way and just hoping I can help other fellow sufferers as I know how debilitating this can be.
This is made in Germany, and you all know how big they are on homeopathy and healthy healing! Additionally, their product has to pass more strict EU quality control then here so you know for sure you are getting the best product.
I will continue taking this for life even after I completely get rid of my uterine fibroids as this is a great immune booster and did I mentioned you will lose weight?! 🙂
Update 2.16.2023- Had my ultrasound and fibroid shrunk to 6.3cm!!! So from 10.1cm to 6.3cm in 1 year! …It works!

Unfortunately for some time now, I have been suffering from endometriosis. For this reason, my desire to have children remained unfulfilled for a long time. At the beginning of 2017 I started taking Tigovit 3 times a day. My general well-being improved quickly, my period pain subsided, and my cycle stabilized. I became pregnant at the end of 2017. I am enthusiastic about Tigovit and would recommend it to everyone.
Linda, Germany 2018
I’ve been taking TIGOVIT for over a year. My gynecologist recommended it to me because I have a large fibroid on my uterus. Before I took it, I often had labor-like symptoms. I already had an appointment for surgery, but I didn’t keep it. Because a few weeks after I started using Tigovit, my symptoms went away suddenly and have not reappeared since.
Amazon Customer, Germany July 2021
Yesterday I had another ultrasound to see if the fibroids had shrunk. The largest one has! I’ve been taking Tigovit on and off for awhile, but I’ve really been keeping up with it for about the last three months, knowing I had a scan coming up.
Lisa Rader Sarasota, FL 2021
Last year I was diagnosed with endometriosis during a laparoscopy after my desire to have children remained unfulfilled for a long time. However, I was advised against a complete surgery in the endometriosis center. Instead, I should try to fulfill my desire to have children with the help of reproductive medicine. In addition, I found out how I can of do something natural about endometriosis. In October 2020 I started taking Tigovit, Tigosol and Omega 3 regularly. My cycles lengthened and my period pains became less. My digestion got going too. I got pregnant naturally in May 2021 which is just amazing !! I was able to cancel the IVF that had already been planned :).
