The foods that we eat are a direct link to maintaining good health. Nowadays, people will go to great lengths to make sure they are getting the proper nutrients from the food they eat. Normally, we avoid carbohydrates and increase our protein intake if we have a very active lifestyle. However, when it comes to the food we eat, women tend to neglect their vaginas and the things that we should eat in order to be sure that they are as healthy as possible.

There are a ton of foods that we should be eating to avoid any vagina-related ailments. Here is a list of foods that will help keep your vagina happy and healthy.

Soy – to avoid vaginal dryness

Nobody wants a dry vagina. It can cause discomfort and even be painful. If a woman has lower levels of estrogen in their body, their vaginas will tend to be drier. Low estrogen levels are usually caused by childbirth, menopause, and certain medications. The natural remedy for vaginal dryness is to eat foods like tofu or edamame. These foods make the tissue inside your vagina moist. They even contain isoflavone which is a plant hormone that resembles estrogen.
