8 Foods That Will Make Your Vagina Healthier

Your lady bits will thank you for eating these.

A A A

The state of one’s vagina depends more than personal hygiene. Do you know that the food you eat also has an effect on what’s going on down there? It’s nice to know that you can improve the health of your lady bits by eating the right food.

So if you want clean and sweet-smelling vagina, make these foods part of your diet.

Salmon

Salmon and other fatty fish are rich in omega 3 fatty acids. As Staci Small, RD, owner of The Wellness Philosophy in Indianapolis says:

“Essential fatty acids are found in the membranes of every cell in our body. They’ve been shown to help improve vaginal dryness in menopausal women.”

Indulge in yummy salmon and other fatty fish twice a week. If you’re not fond of eating fish, you can try other foods that are rich in omega 3. You can also take fish oil supplement.

Strawberries

Vitamin C is good for the vagina and strawberry has loads of them, even more than oranges. “I find women aren’t often getting enough vitamin C,” says Small. She added that “the vitamin is needed for your adrenal glands, which produce both sex hormones and the stress hormone cortisol.” She points out that “C plays a pivotal role in collagen synthesis, which is essential for muscles and tissue elasticity.”

Yogurt

Our gut and vagina needs healthy microbes, which is something that yogurt, which is rich in probiotics, can give you. You should stick to plain yogurt instead of sugared ones, since sugar feeds bad bacteria in your system and produce an imbalance in the body. You can add fruit to make your yogurt taste yummy.

Avocado

Avocado is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, which helps the body produce more sex hormones. Lack of hormones can make the vagina feel drier than usual, which makes sex less pleasurable. You can also try nuts and olive oil, which are also rich in healthy monounsaturated fats.

Kale

Kale is rich in calcium and magnesium. “These two minerals are needed for proper muscle tone and function, including the vagina. However, many women find it difficult to get the amount they need,” says Small.

If you’re not feeling the taste of kale, you can opt for dairy for your calcium and beans and nuts for magnesium.

Whole grains

Whole grains such as whole wheat, farro, and barley are also rich in probiotics. According to Small:

“Their healthy fiber feeds good bacteria in our bodies so it can flourish.”

Other good sources of probiotics are artichokes and bananas.

Kimchi

Kimchi and other fermented foods are chock-full of healthy bacteria, which makes it good for maintaining gut flora in your body, including the vagina. Other fermented delights you can try are miso, pickles, and sauerkraut.

Eggs

Lack of Vitamin D in the body makes you prone to a vaginal infection called bacterial vaginosis. Eggs can give you the dose of Vitamin D you need. If you are not keen on taking supplements, including eggs in your diet is a great idea.

We all know that processed foods can be bad for us, but just how bad are they? New research recently published in the British Medical Journal supports the link between highly processed foods and certain cancers. This means that your favorite sausages, potato chips, biscuits, and canned sauces can be detrimental to your health.
