Nutrition and your vagina

  1. When it comes to your vaginal health, good hygiene is one of the most important conditions to keep it optimal. But what you put on the table also matters. Some foods help to balance the vaginal flora and fight infections. This is how you eat your vagina healthy.

  1. Vaginal infections, cystitis, vaginal discharge. As many as 80 percent of women sometimes suffer from annoying vaginal complaints. The vaginal flora plays an important role in this. If it is out of balance, you have a fungal infection. Healthy bacteria called lactobaccilli are important: they keep the pH of your vagina in balance and the mucous membrane healthy and flexible. This reduces the risk of a candida infection and infection by, for example, streptococci or trichomonas.

Prebiotics

  1. By paying close attention to your diet, you help the lactobaccilli to maintain the balance. For example, prebiotic foods have a good influence on your intestinal flora (also called microbiome), which 'communicates' with the other mucous membranes in the body via the intestinal wall. A healthy intestinal flora warns the good bacteria in other mucous membranes when there are intruders. Prebiotics are nutrients that stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Think of sweet potatoes, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, onions and leeks. Asparagus, bananas and oats can also be counted as prebiotics, as well as apple, cocoa, linseed, pumpkin, sauerkraut, oily fish and seaweed. Finally, yoghurt, biogarde and similar products also ensure that the bacterial flora remains in balance.

So what is probiotics?

  1. A probiotic is a living microbiological food supplement that can improve the microbial balance in the gut. Probiotics can be used in case of a disturbed intestinal flora, but they are also used preventively to prevent a disturbed intestinal flora, for example due to antibiotic use. The best-known probiotics are lactic acid bacteria such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium. Probiotics are available in supplement form, but also as a dairy drink.

Nutrition for vaginal dryness

  1. When the estrogen level in your vagina is on the low side, you will have a somewhat drier vagina. Estrogen ensures that the vagina remains elastic and moist. Estrogen production declines during pregnancy, breast-feeding and menopause, but allergies and cold medicines can also lower estrogen levels. Vaginal dryness not only causes pain during sex, but sex often causes minor wounds. Some foods contain ingredients known as vegetable isoflavonoids or nonsteroidal phytoestrogens that mimic the body's own estrogen. These include soy products such as soybeans, tofu, miso and tempeh. Other phytoestrogen-rich foods include: Edamame beans. Linseed and sesame seeds. Whole grain products such as wholemeal bread, bran and oats (malt) Bell pepper Red grape juice and cranberries. Green beans, chickpeas and kidney beans Broccoli. Celery Nuts such as almonds, walnuts and pistachios

Nutrition and vaginal odor

  1. What you eat affects the smell of your vagina. For example, pineapple would provide a finer smell and taste (also for men, by the way). Citrus fruits, watermelon and strawberries are also said to improve vaginal odor. Herbs, onions, garlic, red meat, dairy, asparagus, broccoli, and alcohol can negatively affect the smell. Water not only helps your vagina stay healthy and well-hydrated. Hydrated vaginal mucous membranes also reduce an unpleasant vaginal odor. The same goes for green tea.

An apple a day ...

  1. Apples are also good for your vaginal health. Research shows that the vagina of women who eat an apple every day is more moist. Apples contain something that mimics the female hormone estradiol. The fruits also contain polyphenols that stimulate blood flow in the vaginal tissue. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are also good for your vaginal flora (especially tomato, grapefruit and lemon). Many fruits and vegetables - and nuts and seeds too - contain vitamin E. This can help with vaginal dryness and menstrual cramps.

Rather not With healthy food you maintain the natural balance of the vagina. Unhealthy food actually disrupts that balance. Sugar in particular has this effect, often resulting in a vaginal yeast infection. Eating low in sugar is therefore recommended if you regularly suffer from vaginal fungi. Of course, this not only applies to refined sugars, but also to sweeteners such as honey. Moreover, alcohol and caffeine feed the fungus, so don't use them if you already have an infection. Also on the 'prefer-not' list, but not all scientifically proven: yeast-rich products (bread, rusk), ham and sausages ( pork anyway), old and mature cheese, mold-containing foods such as mushrooms and blue cheese, milk of animal origin, fatty meats and overripe fruit.
