Irregular periods

Explanation

It is believed that antioxidants have the ability to prevent cells from mutating. In other words, they prevent cells from becoming ‘abnormal’. This is extremely important if you have been diagnosed with thickening of the womb lining (endometrial hyperplasia) because you don’t want the cells to mutate. Antioxidants include vitamins A, C and E and the mineral selenium. Their effects have been proven: women with womb tumours have been shown to have less of both selenium and vitamin E than women without them so make sure you are getting enough of these valuable nutrients

Foods

Goji, blueberries, dark chocolate, pecans, cranberries, raisins

 

Important: Always read the directions and consult with your doctor before embarking on a vitamin regime.
