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

Tigovit Green tea capsules
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.
Eva, Germany 2021, Amazon verified
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!
Kokoloverified Amazon Customer
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 :).

Skincare with Green Tea benefits

by November 2, 2023

Skin Care with Green Tea Extract/EGCG

Green tea extract is a popular ingredient in skin care products for a reason. It has a wide range of benefits for the skin, including:

  • Antioxidant protection: Green tea extract is rich in antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells, leading to premature aging and other skin problems.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties: Green tea extract also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe and calm irritated skin. This can be beneficial for people with conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
  • Oil control: Green tea extract can help to control sebum production, which can help to reduce acne breakouts and make the skin look less oily.
  • Skin hydration: Green tea extract can also help to hydrate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.

Green Tea Skincare Tips

In addition to these general benefits, green tea extract has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of specific skin problems:

  • Acne: Green tea extract can help to reduce acne breakouts by killing bacteria, reducing inflammation, and controlling sebum production.
  • Rosacea: Green tea extract can help to soothe and calm the skin, reduce redness, and improve skin tone in people with rosacea.
  • Sun damage: Green tea extract can help to protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. It can also help to reduce the appearance of sun damage, such as wrinkles and age spots.
  • Eczema: Green tea extract can help to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin in people with eczema.
  • Psoriasis: Green tea extract may help to reduce the severity of psoriasis flares and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Green tea extract is a safe and effective ingredient for most people. However, it is important to do a patch test before using any new skin care product. Do this especially if you have sensitive skin.

To use green tea extract in your skin care routine, you can look for products that contain it as an ingredient. Green tea extract is commonly found in cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and masks. You can also make your own green tea extract toner. Steep green tea bags in hot water for a few minutes, letting it cool, and then applying it to your skin with a cotton ball.

Additional Green Tea Skincare tips:

Here are some tips for incorporating green tea extract into your skin care routine:

  • If you have oily skin, use a green tea extract cleanser to help control sebum production.
  • If you have dry skin, use a green tea extract moisturizer to help hydrate your skin.
  • If you have acne or rosacea, use a green tea extract serum to help soothe and calm your skin.
  • If you have sun damage or eczema, use a green tea extract mask to help improve the overall appearance of your skin.

No matter what your skin type or concerns are, green tea extract is a beneficial ingredient to add to your skin care routine.

5 Questions about Green Tea for Dr. Fautek

by September 22, 2023

Five Green Tea Questions for Dr. Fautek

Green tea has a potential for miracles: It strengthens the immune system, makes you fit and lively and may even help to prevent cancer. But what about the good image of green tea?

We asked Dr Jan-Dirk Fauteck, founding member and scientific director of the training academy for doctors interested in preventive medicine ea3m, European Academy of Preventive and Anti-Aging Medicine, five questions about it.

Dr. Fautek about green tea

How does green tea affect someone’s overall health and well-being from your medical perspective?

“Green tea and/or high-quality green tea extract has many positive effects on our well-being and ultimately also on our health. Thanks to its many active ingredients, above all EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), it supports and contributes to many physiological processes in our body This ensures that these processes do not get out of balance, because it is precisely this balance that is the basic requirement for our body to feel good and stay healthy or become healthy again.”

Are there any scientific studies that confirm the health benefits of green tea? What are the key insights?

“Over the past two decades, there has been a steadily increasing number of scientific papers that have clearly demonstrated the benefits of EGCG or green tea extract. On the one hand, it has been shown that green tea extract is a potent antioxidant to treat so many diseases at the beginning of their respective On the other hand, it also influences other pathogenic processes in such a way that, for example, certain cytokines are not produced in excess, thereby stopping or at least dramatically reducing the inflammatory process, a process that is considered a basic prerequisite for many diseases. It can be proven that the regular intake of high-quality EGCG, for example, prevents the growth of a wide variety of tumors and that the size of the tumors can even be reduced over time in some cases.
Other clinical studies have shown that the local application of EGCG creams containing lasting improvement in the appearance of the skin. The latest studies also indicate that neurodegenerative processes are also positively influenced.”

Can the Antioxidants in Green Tea Offer Protection Against Age-Related Diseases? How and to what extent could this be the case?

“Both the so-called subliminal inflammation and the increased production of free radicals are the main causes of many age-related diseases. As already mentioned, the green tea extract has a high effectiveness in both cases in reducing, if not stopping, these processes. It is therefore not surprising that that EGCG also has a preventive effect in keeping age-related diseases under control.Certainly, this effect is both dose-dependent to a certain extent and the earlier one starts prevention, the more effective it is.Ongoing long-term studies will confirm that early and long-term supplementation of EGCG can reduce diseases such as the metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular problems, neurodegenerative processes of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s as well as oncological changes, if not even partially prevent them. Findings from the preliminary short-term studies and animal studies give hope for positive things.”

What benefits might regular consumption of green tea have for patients with certain diseases or conditions?

“Basically, one should distinguish whether one wants to use the green tea extract as a preventive measure or whether one wants to use it under certain clinical conditions, e.g. as an add-on. In the first case, consumption should take place regularly, as early as possible and for a longer period of time. Suitable here Slightly lower dosages are probably also possible, such as up to 180 mg three times a day. If certain diseases are already present, EGCG can also be used in the short term, in slightly higher dosages for medium-term supplement periods. In this case, the green tea extract should often be combined with other phytochemicals and/or or combine with other dietary supplements to achieve an increased effect.”

How would you classify the consumption of green tea compared to other health-promoting measures such as exercise or a change in diet?

“In the so-called preventive medicine or orthomolecular medicine, there is not one super product that is suitable for all needs. Rather, it is the combination that counts and here two things are unavoidable: in order to achieve a certain long-term success, the The lifestyle of the respective person can be improved. In most cases, an optimization of the nutritional habits is essential for this. At the same time, healthy exercise or sporting activity is required. Both together, nutrition and sport, support each other in order to maintain health If you then supplement these measures with the supplementation of vital substances such as green tea, the successes in terms of health promotion can be increased again. The sole supplementation with poor nutrition and too little physical exercise, on the other hand, is ineffective and the desired effect remains unachieved..

Is Menopause the End of Uterine Fibroids?

by September 9, 2023

Do Uterine Fibroids End With Menopause?

Menopause is the natural end of a woman’s menstrual cycle. It occurs when the ovaries stop producing eggs and estrogen levels decline. Menopause typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.The decrease in estrogen levels during menopause can sometimes cause fibroids to shrink. However, in some cases, fibroids may actually grow larger during menopause.


Estrogen can be stored in fat cells. This is why women who are overweight or obese tend to have higher levels of estrogen than women who are at a healthy weight.The storage of estrogen in belly fat is a complex process that is not fully understood. However, it is thought that estrogen may promote the accumulation of belly fat by increasing the number of fat cells and by making it harder for the body to burn fat.The increase in belly fat that occurs with menopause is also thought to be related to the decline in estrogen levels. Estrogen helps to regulate the metabolism of fat, and its loss can lead to an increase in belly fat.The link between estrogen and belly fat is important because belly fat is a major risk factor for chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes even breast cancer. Therefore, it is important for women to maintain a healthy weight and to manage estrogen levels to reduce their risk of these diseases..

More Health Tips

Reducing belly fat after menopause can be challenging, but it is possible with the right approach. Here are some tips:

  • Make gradual changes to your diet. Don’t try to overhaul your entire diet overnight. Instead, start by making small changes, such as eating more fruits and vegetables and less processed foods. You can also try to reduce your intake of sugary drinks and unhealthy fats.
  • Get regular exercise. Exercise is one of the best things you can do to lose weight and reduce belly fat. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
  • Strength training. Strength training can help to build muscle, which can help you burn more calories at rest. Aim to do strength training exercises two to three times per week.
  • Get enough sleep. When you’re sleep-deprived, your body produces more of the stress hormone cortisol, which can promote belly fat storage. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
  • Manage stress. Stress can also lead to belly fat storage. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, or spending time in nature.
  • Talk to your doctor. If you’re struggling to lose weight, talk to your doctor. They can help you develop a personalized plan to reach your goals.
  • Take a natural estrogen blocker like EGCG in Green tea extract

Additional Uterine Fibroid Tips that may be helpful:

  • Set realistic goals. Don’t try to lose too much weight too quickly. Aim to lose 1-2 pounds per week.
  • Be patient. It takes time to lose weight and reduce belly fat. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results immediately.
  • Find an exercise buddy. Exercising with a friend can help you stay motivated.
  • Make changes to your environment. Make it easier to make healthy choices by keeping healthy foods on hand and avoiding unhealthy snacks.

Remember, everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another. The most important thing is to find what works for you and stick with it. With time and effort, you can reduce your belly fat and improve your overall health.

If you are experiencing symptoms of uterine fibroids during menopause, talk to your doctor.
