A good way to start is with vitamins and supplements. Vitamins and supplements give your body the help it needs when it comes to producing more nutrients. Sometimes the body doesn’t produce the number of nutrients it needs and that’s where taking supplements come into play. Three vitamins/supplements that help alleviate pelvic pain are vitamins A,C & E.
Vitamins A, C & E have antioxidant properties and these properties help with fighting off bad molecules in the body. These molecules can cause tissue damage, so taking these three vitamins can help prevent more tissue damage (you know, the fake endometrial tissue).
It’s also been shown that vitamin E has inflammatory properties. Adding this supplement to your daily routine (with the right dosage) could ease pelvic pain for people living with endometriosis, which is caused by inflamed tissue.
Other Supplements That May Help When Symptoms Are Too Much
Zinc is another supplement that shows it could be helpful for those experiencing painful endometriosis symptoms. It decreases the oxidative stress markers and increases the antioxidant markers.
Vitamin D is also a great vitamin/supplement to implement into your daily routine if you experience painful endometriosis symptoms because it helps decrease the rate of development.
Curcumin is also beneficial for reducing pelvic pain because of its anti-inflammatory properties (turmeric) that hinder endometrial cells by reducing estradiol production.
To simply put it, vitamins and supplements have a lot more benefits than just making you “healthier”. They help alleviate pain and prevent growths and disorders over time. Have a talk with your doctor about what would be the most beneficial supplements and vitamins to take. A healthier and better feeling you is just one vitamin or supplement away.
