While you can and should consume these foods throughout your cycle, they are especially good for supporting your body through menstrual phase. This “group” of foods has a few things in common to make that possible:

  • Fiber – crucial to excess estrogen detoxification. Excess estrogen is thought to be one of the causes of uterine fibroids.

  • Iron – Many women with fibroids experience anemia or low iron. Anemia can lead to lethargy and low energy, as well as fogginess.

  • Manganese – This trace mineral is believed to reduce inflammation and pain associated with inflammation. It also serves as a cofactor for several other nutrients.

  • Vitamin K – Aids in clotting to reduce excessive bleeding that may result from fibroids.
