Women in their middle ages often suffer from fibroids in the uterus. This condition causes serious health problems such as vaginal bleeding, excessive loss of blood leading to anemia and loss of energy.
The current effective cure involves the surgical removal of the uterus (hysterectomy). Many women suffering from this condition are looking for alternatives to surgery.
A newly published study showed that green tea extract may be the solution. Researchers found that green tea extract significantly reduced the number and size of fibroids in the rats uterus. This positive result will ensure that the next step is taken in conducting human studies.Green tea is known to contain many active chemicals that have health benefits such as lowering high cholesterol and high blood pressure, treating ovarian cancer, preventing Parkinson's disease, and possibly preventing breast cancer.
