Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gynecological diseases are a group of diseases of the female reproductive tract. These diseases include benign and malignant tumors and pregnancy-related, inflammatory and endocrine diseases that can occur in the female reproductive system, including the cervix, ovaries, uterus, vagina and vulva. There are different risk factors and etiological mechanisms involved in the development of gynecological diseases. Numerous studies have shown that nutritional factors and dietary habits play a significant role in the development of gynecological diseases. Therefore, the exploration of effective chemopreventive and therapeutic approaches to gynecological diseases is critically important for women’s welfare.

This Specific Issue, “The Role of Nutrition in Gynecological Diseases”, will focus on advances in our understanding of the association between nutrition, dietary habits/interventions and gynecological diseases and will discuss how nutrition and dietary intervention can help to improve disease prevention and treatment efficacy in major gynecological diseases.

The role of minerals in female fertility, particularly in relation to the menstrual cycle, presents a complex area of study that underscores the interplay between nutrition and reproductive health. This narrative review aims to elucidate the impacts of minerals on key aspects of the reproductive system: hormonal regulation, ovarian function and ovulation, endometrial health, and oxidative stress. Despite the attention given to specific micronutrients in relation to reproductive disorders, there is a noticeable absence of a comprehensive review focusing on the impact of minerals throughout the menstrual cycle on female fertility. This narrative review aims to address this gap by examining the influence of minerals on reproductive health. Each mineral’s contribution is explored in detail to provide a clearer picture of its importance in supporting female fertility. This comprehensive analysis not only enhances our knowledge of reproductive health but also offers clinicians valuable insights into potential therapeutic strategies and the recommended intake of minerals to promote female reproductive well-being, considering the menstrual cycle. This review stands as the first to offer such a detailed examination of minerals in the context of the menstrual cycle, aiming to elevate the understanding of their critical role in female fertility and reproductive health.
