Glutathione and Endometriosis: Research Links Symptom Improvement with Antioxidants
Recent studies have reported a possible link between antioxidant functioning and improvement of the chronic disease, endometriosis. It is widely accepted that many chronic health conditions can be improved when diet is changed to a balanced nutritional one, with dietary antioxidants and the use of daily quality supplements. For women who are diagnosed with endometriosis, this research may point to alternative non-invasive therapies that may offer symptom relief and improvement.
What is Endometriosis?
A painful condition for women, endometriosis is a chronic disease that impacts over 6.3 million women and girls in the United States. The condition occurs when tissue (endometrium) begins to rapidly grow outside of the uterus into other reproductive areas, as well as nearby organs, including the bladder and bowel. In severe cases, endometrium can grow unchecked into other areas including the lungs, arms and legs. The pain experienced by individuals who have endometriosis can become debilitating when the endometrium spreads to other areas of the body, causing a build up of blood and tissue which may not be able to be expelled. Endometriosis is frequently a worsening condition that can result in loss of fertility, surgery and some studies have reported a possible link between endometriosis and reproductive cancer in women.
Some of the symptoms of endometriosis are:
- Fatigue (from iron loss).
- Painful elimination.
- Increased risk and frequency of infections.
- Internal bleeding.
The frequency of cycles and the associated pain that women experience make endometriosis a condition that can impact health in other ways, including obesity, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, and it has been theorized as a possible precursor to Type 2 Diabetes in women.
In a medical research report published in 2009, doctors revealed a link between reduced symptoms of discomfort and significant improvement for endometriosis patients, when antioxidant levels were raised in the focus group. The research revealed that a high antioxidant diet (HAD) reduced peripheral oxidative stress markers, and increased antioxidant functioning.
Read: “Women with endometriosis improved their peripheral antioxidant markers after the application of a high antioxidant diet.” This is encouraging news for women who have endometriosis, as it offers therapeutic nutritional options that may help to alleviate some of the discomfort, and progression of the chronic condition.
