5 foods your vagina wants you to eat
  • Eat more sweet potatoes for fertility

Couples who want to conceive should add sweet potatoes to their diet. Rich in beta-carotene and vitamin A, it helps strengthen and protect uterine walls. Beta-carotene and vitamin A have been studied to have direct effects on fertility and reproduction in both men and women, as well as healthy fetal development.

  • An apple for orgasms

An apple a day keeps you away from aphrodisiac. A study in 2014 suggested that women who eat an apple daily are active in bed. Apples promote better sexual function, arousal, lubrication, and ability to orgasm. Women who consume two or more servings of citrus fruit per day are less likely to develop uterine fibroids.

  • Soy to help decreasing estrogen levels

Soy contains phytoestrogens; compounds that mimic estrogen in the body are good news for vaginal health, especially in people with reduced estrogen levels. Minimally-processed soy products are hydrophilic (which allows your muscles to retain more water) and contain isoflavones (a plant-derived phytoestrogen) that have been studied to be beneficial for the skin in postmenopausal women.

  • Avocados for your womanly walls

Popularly known for its beauty and health benefits, adding avocados to your diet promotes better sex. Avocados are ample in healthy fats, vitamin B-6, and potassium — all of which have positive effects on your libido.

This libido-boosting fruit (yes, it’s a fruit!) can enhance lubrication and estrogen levels, strengthen vaginal walls, and may even increase IVF success due to its unsaturated fats. Funny enough, the avocado tree was actually loosely named the “testicle tree” by the Aztecs.

  • Leafy greens help decrease vaginal dryness

Leafy greens are good for the whole family and women of age should consume it more because it is good for their vaginal health.

Dark leafy greens are blood-purifying and enhance circulation due to their many nutrients, including dietary nitrates. This can help prevent vaginal dryness and increase stimulation, which is never a bad thing.

These greens are also rich in vitamin E, magnesium, and calcium, all of which are beneficial to muscle health — including vaginal muscles.
