During the last stage of the menstrual cycle, normally a layer of endometriosis lining on the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood, instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body to cause endometriosis. Endometriosis also react to hormone signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, by building and breaking up tissues and eliminating them through menstrual period.
The Vitamin E
Vitamin E, best known for its powerful antioxidant property is a fat soluble vitamin and can be stored in our body. We don't require to take it regularly.
1. Immune system(209)(210)
Since vitamin E is an antioxidant, it helps to increase liver function in fighting the forming of free radicals(212), abnormal cells and cancers(211). In endometriosis, it prevents the growth of abnormal endometrial cells to form implants and adhesion in other parts of the body excluding the endometrium.
2. Cell protection(213)(214)
Since vitamin E protects the fatty acid against degradation in the human body(210) that helps to prevent against the oxidation in cell membranes and cellular regions resulting in protecting against the breaking off of the capillary wall causing heavy blood flow(215) during menstruation.
3. Red blood cells(217)
Deficiency of vitamin E in women with endometriosis were also found to have anemia(218). It is caused by the faster than normal aging of red blood cells because of oxidative destruction of red blood cells(216).
4. Nervous system(219)
Since we already known that vitamin E is essential for increasing the ability of red blood cells to carry oxygen in the circulation system, it helps to nourish the brain cells fighting against symptoms of endometriosis such as mood swings, anxiety, and depression.
5. Hormone imbalance
Deficiency of vitamin E also interferes with normal functions of thyroid(220)(221) and pituitary(222) glands causing the decrease of levels of fatty acids resulting in endometrial menstrual cramps(223) which in turn result in the over-production of certain prostaglandins hormones.
