Foods you need to eat for a healthy, good-smelling vagina

Health - By Esther Muchene | June 5th 2018 at 11:10:00 GMT +0300

  • Did you know what you eat can affect how you smell down there?
  • If you eat strong-smelling foods such as onions and garlics, it can lead to a pungent smelling vagina.
  • It is popularly known that cranberries and cranberry juice offers a myriad of health and beauty benefits on account of its high nutritional value known to be an effective treatment for UTIs.
  • Pineapples are also said to help with how you taste down below.

However, these are not the only foods that are good for your vagina. Here are some foods you need to keep in your diet for the general health of your vagina.

  1. Green tea

Green tea contains polyphenolic catechins which usually kill the E. coli bacteria, that is responsible for causing UTIs. The caffeine in the green tea is also helpful in easing PMS. Just make sure not to over do the green tea as it can lead to liver complications.

  1. Yoghurt

Yoghurt contains probiotics that are great in promoting healthy vaginal microflora. This in turn helps prevent infections such as bacterial vaginosis, UTIs and yeast infections. Yoghurt also contains calcium that can help with improving PMS symptoms.

  1. Whole grain, legumes and vegetables

Legumes, vegetables and whole grains are foods rich in fiber. Taking sufficient amounts of fiber helps foster good bacteria in your bowel. Since most of the bacteria that comes in contact with your vagina is from the colon, it is important that you keep your vagina healthy by keeping your colon healthy.

  1. Apples

An apple a day leads to better sexual function in women. This includes your ability to get aroused, your ability to orgasm and sexual satisfaction. All this is made possible by a phytoestrogen found in apples known as phloridzin.

  1. Oily fish

Vitamin D and omega fatty acids are nutrients that are crucial for your general health and the health of your heart. Taking foods such as salmon will give you a healthy dose of these nutrients. Food that is good for your heart is also good for your sexual health as it helps with arousal and promotes the flow of blood to the area below the belt.

It is important to stay hydrated in order to maintain a moist and lubricated vaginal area. This will generally help you in getting and staying more aroused.
