With rise in awareness about sex people are also paying more attention to their bodies and personal hygiene. Healthy genitals are also an important factor for a good sex life and overall well being.

While lotions and other medication for a healthy vagina are available in markets, diet is also an important part of maintaining the well being of private parts. Here are few foods which can help you achieve that.

 

Sweet potatoes

Rich in vitamin A, sweet potatoes are good for vaginal and uterine walls. They also lead to hormones which keep people vibrant and help them maintain energy.

Yogurt

Live and active probiotics in yogurt are crucial for vaginal health as the good bacteria lead to healthy pH levels.

Guava, oranges and green peppers

These foods are rich in vitamin C which is needed for a good stamina and promoting sexual health by increasing sexual drive.

Garlic

Yeast infections are a major concern when it comes to vaginal health and hygiene. Eating garlic raw helps tackle this issue thanks to its antimicrobial properties.

 

Pumpkin seeds

Zinc is important for normalising the menstrual cycle and regulating hormones; and pumpkin seeds are a rich source of this mineral. They are also crucial for boosting mood and strengthening the immune system.
