Best Foods for Fibroids

Recently, a study in the journal Nutrients reviewed more than 200 previous studies to find the foods you can eat to reduce your fibroid risk and to help manage your existing fibroid symptoms. Here are some of their top recommendations:

  • Adding more organic foods, since certain chemicals can increase fibroid risk
  • High fiber foods such as broccoli or other crunchy veggies.
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Beta-carotene rich treats such as carrots and sweet potatoes that may also boost fertility!
  • Legumes, grass-fed beef (in moderation) and lean poultry for the iron content
  • Quinoa, flaxseeds and other whole grains
  • Citrus fruits such as oranges, grapes and apples
  • Berries, pineapple and kiwi
  • Green tea
  • Omega-3 fatty acid rich fish

You may also wish to add fibroid-fighting supplements to your diet, including B-complex and D vitamins.) But make sure to clear any new supplements with your healthcare provider before adding them to your routine.

Fibroid Relief That Goes Beyond Your Diet
