Vagina health: 5 foods to make the vagina happy and healthy

The vagina uses natural secretions, immune defences, and “good” bacteria to keep itself healthy. Eating a healthful, balanced diet might also further prevent infections and improve vaginal conditions.

Ladies, for a healthy, feel-good, orgasm-rich vagina, it starts with your diet. This healthy diet allows your vagina to sensitive when it needs to be and be healthy inside and out for you and your partner. Here are some 5 foods you need to be eating:

  • Spinach

Spinach is rich in magnesium, a mineral that decreases inflammation in blood vessels and increases blood flow. Increased blood flow drives blood to the extremities, which, like Viagra, can increase arousal and make sex more pleasurable.

  • Carrot

Researchers found that women who consumed flavonoid luteolin (found in carrots, cabbages, and peppers) saw a 34% reduced risk of ovarian cancer.

  • Water

This shouldn't come as a surprise to you, but guzzling down H2O is probably one of the best things you can do to your vagina.

Hydration is key for overall health, but also for proper functioning of the vagina which has its own self-cleaning system. Adequate water intake will increase lubrication, allow secretions to be released and proper PH balance of vaginal tissues.

  • Garlic

We're not telling you to consume it in raw form (unless that's your thing), but adding garlic to your meals can provide much protection to your vagina. Thanks to its anti-microbial properties, garlic can help fight yeast infections.

  • Coconut oil

Coconut oil is yummy to eat, but this product really shines when you introduce it to your sex life. Adding coconut oil down there doesn't only get your vagina more lubricated, but its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties do a great job at preventing yeast infections. And improve things in the bedroom with these foods to increase your sex drive.
