Abstract: This literature review analyzed the evidence on nutritional aspects related to the pathogenesis and progression of endometriosis. Diets deficient in nutrients result in changes in lipid metabolism, oxidative stress and promote epigenetic abnormalities, that may be involved in the genesis and progression of the disease. Foods rich in omega 3 with anti-inflammatory effects, supplementation with Nacetylcysteine, vitamin D and resveratrol, in addition to the increased consumption of fruits, vegetables (preferably … Show more

“…A phase II randomized controlled trial demonstrated that oral intake of melatonin was associated with improved sleep quality, reduced pelvic pain levels, and decreased brain-derived neurotrophic factor level in endometriosis women with chronic pelvic pain and dysmenorrhea [114]. Other natural antioxidants include curcumin and resveratrol [174,175]. While only few studies were done, the results showed significant reduction in serum ROS and lipid peroxidation and an increase in total antioxidant capacity [174,175].…”

“…The respondents have understood that fast food is not a good food and will affect the health. One of the effects of consuming fast food is women will have the pain or dysmenorrhea during menstruation (Halpern, Schor, & Kopelman, 2016).…”

“…Moreover, in the last two decades, organochlorines, including polychlorobiphenyls and pesticides/insecticides, that can be ingested through various nutrients have been proposed as risk factors for the disease 10. In addition, the shift to a Western-style dietary pattern, characterized by a large intake of refined, processed, and canned foods, plenty of colorants, pesticides, preservatives, and stabilizers in theory may have generated an imbalance in the body, favoring a proinflammatory state and increasing circulating free radicals and oxidative stress 11. Despite these premises, the role of diet on endometriosis risk remains elusive, eg, in a systematic review of the literature by Parazzini et al8 of eleven studies, the results were characterized by extreme variability, and strong or definitive information could not be provided.…”
