No one likes to experience redness or the itching and burning sensation down below. This can be caused by any number of things and is always an unpleasant experience.
Did you know that by incorporating certain foods into your diet you can prevent getting any of these discomforting symptoms? You can also help promote a strong reproductive system and prevent menstrual cramps, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and vaginal dryness.
Here is a grocery shopping list for your Vagina: (for you to eat and drink!)
Yogurt with live active cultures (probiotics) helps maintain your vagina’s pH levels. Your body is a host to all sorts of bacteria, good and bad. Body-friendly bacteria are known as probiotics. As physical benefits of probiotics are becoming more well known, food companies are adding them to their products, making them easier to find, and that is great news for women.
Cranberry juice is well known for its ability to prevent and relieve symptoms of urinary tract infections, it also helps balance pH levels. The recommended daily intake is eight ounces, and is the simplest way to keep your vagina pH well balanced.
Plenty of nuts, fresh fruits, and vegetables
These foods do not only apply to weight loss, a healthy diet goes a long way toward a healthy body and a healthy vagina.
Vitamin E found in olive oil, nuts, seeds, and avocados helps keep skin in good condition and helps prevent vaginal dryness. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables could help prevent menstrual cramps.
Water helps all functions of your body run smoothly, especially where muscles and bodily fluids are concerned. Mucous membranes found in your eyes, nose, mouth, and vagina rely on a well-hydrated body to function properly. Drinking the recommended eight glasses of water per day not only aids with natural lubrication but can also create a milder vaginal scent and taste.
Pineapples might make your vagina smell and taste better, but it’s not scientifically proven.
Also note that: Caffein, alcohol, chocolate, and artificial sweeteners can irritate your bladder. These foods are bladder-irritating foods and may have you going to the bathroom more often than you like. Eliminating these foods from your diet will help reduce the urge to urinate as often.
Your bladder and vaginal health not only depend on a healthy diet but proper hygiene, breathable undergarments, and practicing safe sex are essential factors in your vaginal health.
Your body is the most precious possession you will ever own, and you should love and care for all of it, vagina included. You definitely won’t regret it, and your partner won’t either!
