7 Food Items That Make for a Happy & Healthy Vagina
As much as we bother ourselves with our external hygiene, it is imperative we focus on internal hygiene as well. No, we are not indicating that you consume veggies and herbs that help you poop twice a day. Ok, maybe you should focus on that too. But right now our eyes are solely fixed on your vaginas, ladies.
Did you know that all sorts of infections and vaginal complications: stuff like yeast infection, urinary tract infection, bacterial infection, irritation and more such, can be kicked to the curb if you consume a few extremely easy to find food items on a regular basis?
Let's go through them one by one:
Perhaps the best hack to keep the mucous vaginal membranes hydrated, and to maintain it's natural lubrication, and also, to diminish unwanted odour.
Cranberry juice's acidic nature has some major positive effects on the bladder, and helps balance the pH levels of your vajayjay, in turn, warding off or relieving the symptoms of urinary tract infections.
Probiotics maintain vaginal pH levels of the vagina, adding good bacteria to your system and keeping your gut healthy. They also do a great job of warding off yeast infections.
Nuts and seeds
Nuts and seeds, including walnuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, and almonds, contain high levels of Vitamin E, which helps in preventing vaginal dryness. Zinc, which is also found in abundance in these items, helps regulate menstrual cycles.
Well, not the most appetising gastronomic element, but you'd be surprised what these bulbs can do for your vagina. Given its antifungal and antimicrobial properties, eating raw garlic can kill yeast, which can be helpful for women who are prone to yeast infections. It can also ease the symptoms, should you already be suffering from one.
Fresh fruits and veggies
Veggies like cabbage, spinach, and kale help with blood circulation, and prevent vaginal dryness. Citrus fruits are important for their high levels of Vitamin C.
Filled to the brim with Vitamin A, sweet potatoes make uterine walls super strong, as well as produce hormones that help stay energized.
