20 Jan Women Talking: Vitamin D and uterine fibroids
The presence of vitamin D in our body is necessary to help maintain healthy bones. Clinical studies have also shown that women who maintain an adequate vitamin D level are less likely to develop heart disease or uterine fibroids.
Sources of Vitamin D:
- Fatty fish, like salmon and tuna
- Beef liver
- Vitamin D3 supplements in capsules
If there is a family history of fibroids in your family, consider doing the following:
- See your specialist doctor at least once a year to find out how your uterus is
- Check your hormonal levels
- Increase your intake of Vitamin D to reduce the risk of developing them
- Watch your weight and daily diet
- Get a regular physical activity for at least 30 minutes
