Vitamins and calcium boost cervical health

Women with chronic human papillomavirus (HPV) infection are more likely to develop cervical dysplasia—precancerous changes to cells inside the cervix.

In one study, doctors compared supplement use in 162 HPV-positive women with cervical dysplasia to 166 HPV-positive women without cervical dysplasia. Compared to those who did not take supplements, those who took multi-vitamins, vitamins A, C and E, or calcium were 65 percent to 89 percent less likely to have cervical dysplasia.
