Study shows that women with endometriosis during menstrual cycle found to be deficient in some vitamins listed below:
1. Vitamins A
Women with excessive blood flow during the menstrual cycle caused by endometrial implants or adhesion in the abdomen found to have low levels of vitamin A in there bloodstream. Together used with vitamin E will help to relieve menstrual bleeding and keep hormone balance in the body. Beta carotene is another form of vitamin A that also helps to enhance the immune system and protect against growth of endometriosis.

2. Vitamin B complex
High levels of estrogen in the body of women with endometriosis usually is a best indication of vitamin B complex deficiency causing menstrual cramps, hormone imbalance of prostaglandins, and stress.

3. Vitamins C
Besides helping to strengthen the immune system, vitamin C also helps to make the small veins more elastic and not easy to break off during menstruation resulting in preventing heavy blood flow. It also helps to relax overactive uterus muscles by increasing the production of of good prostaglandins that binds the bad prostaglandins causing high level of estrogen produced by the body.

4. Bioflavonoids
Bioflavonoids are found in conjunction with vitamin C in food, together they help to improve the absorption of the digestive system, strengthen the capillary walls and increases blood circulation as well as reducing bleeding during menstruation.

5. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is essential to women with endometrosis, because it not only helps to restore and repair the internal and exterior membrane damage of cells but also strengthens the capillary walls and increases production of red blood cells.

6. Vitamin K
Vitamin K besides making osteocalcin that helps to attract calcium for a strong bone density, it also helps in blood clotting. Deficiency of vitamin K is said to be one of the causes of heavy bleeding.
