Dietitian Tips For Managing Endometriosis
5 Ways Your Diet Could Help Ease Symptoms of Endometriosis
Sip on Green Tea
Swapping out a sugary soda for a green tea is a simple and cozy recommendation that clients are often happy to follow. If you have a diagnosis of endometriosis, a component found in green tea called EGCG is a secret weapon you want to keep in their back pocket. In a study published in Human Reproduction, EGCG was shown to prevent new endometriotic lesions from forming, therefore suggesting that it may be a therapeutic agent for the disease.
Not a fan of green tea? White, oolong, and black teas also contain EGCG, as do foods like pears, cranberries, and pecans.
