Well, here are some healthy foods that will keep your vagina in great condition, all-day, everyday
Your vagina contains large amounts of “good” bacteria that help protect you from “bad” bacteria that may enter your body. You can help increase levels of helpful bacteria by eating foods such as yogurt. The good bacteria in yogurt may also help by balancing acid levels in your vaginal fluids. For the best benefit, choose yogurt brands that contain live, active cultures such as Lactobacillus.
2, Fermented foods
There are certain fermented foods contain helpful good bacteria. These include some types of sauerkraut and pickles, kimchi, kombucha, and kefir. Common fermented foods from local staples in Nigeria include cassava products (garri, fufu, elubo, abacha, akara akpu), maize products (ogi, agidi, soy‐ogi), millet products (ogi‐baba, kwunu, tuwo, fura). For processed foods, check food labels to see if the product you’re buying contains live, active cultures.
3, High-fiber foods
High-fiber foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains contain compounds known as prebiotics. Prebiotics are a favorite food of good intestinal bacteria, which help keep your entire body, including your vagina, healthy and in balance.
Aim to eat at least 28 grams of fiber or more per day. As a bonus, eating a high-fiber diet also helps keep your bowel movements regular and may reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
4, Cranberry juice
You’ve probably heard that drinking cranberry juice reduces your chances of developing urinary tract infections, but it also wards off vaginal infections. Compounds in cranberries could balance the vagina’s pH level, and its acidic property helps fight bacteria that cause infections.
Just read the label and buy pure cranberry juice without added sugar.
OK, it’s not a food. But water can help your vagina by keeping tissues hydrated and helping your body eliminate wastes effectively.
You may not realize it, but following a balanced, nutritious diet and drinking plenty of fluids are both key to reproductive and vaginal health. In fact, it is really effective in treating its health problems.
