Feminine health is an important aspect in maintaining a woman’s overall health which can be affected by daily activities and/or products such as medications, diet, clothing, exercise, and even stress. But did you know that there are 5 Common Foods That Tackle both Energy + Women’s Health?
When it comes to wellness, there are so many factors that play a role. Just from a ‘body’ wellness standpoint, there are many foods that help the body to function at it’s best in every area. However, when it comes to women’s health, there are specific foods and nutrients needed to ensure that our vaginas and reproductive system are at their optimal health, much like when it comes to boosting our energy on a daily basis. But did you know that there were a small number of ‘common’ foods that can achieve both at the same time? Yup. I did a bit of research and found a few everyday foods that can help us out ladies!
But don’t worry–our vaginas are pretty good at protecting and cleaning themselves. However, by following best practices (such as good hygiene, safe sex, and regular OB-GYN visits), you can ensure that your feminine health remains in tact and your PH balance is awesome! Here are the 5 foods you should eat to help with this…..
Ok, so this doesn’t sound like a bad idea right? I know. I’m thinking the same thing. I absolutely love sweet potatoes so this is easy! Haha. But the best part—not only do they taste great, but they are also great for boosting energy due to their presence of fiber and complex carbohydrates. Plus, they contain Vitamins A and C, which work with boosting your immune system. But did you know that they are amazing for your vagina too? The Vitamin A that they contain are linked to fertility. In addition, the nutrients in sweet potatoes help to strengthen the tissues of vaginal and uterine walls. Who knew?

Probiotics (ex: Greek Yogurt)
As you may know, probiotics are good for the gut since they provide good bacteria. However, did you know that they are great for our lady parts and energy as well? For one, they balance our PH levels and help to ward off infections such as yeast infections (really common among women). Plus, the calcium that is present in foods like Greek Yogurt help with PMS symptoms.
Plant Fatty Acids: Omega-3 (ex: Salmon, Spinach, Walnuts, Omega-3 Eggs, Red Lentils)
These plant fatty acids are super effective in boosting your energy! Packed with B-Vitamins (especially Vitamin B-12), foods such as Salmon, Walnuts, etc. help to ward off fatigue and boost energy naturally. When it comes to eggs, eating the whole egg (yolk included) helps to level out your blood sugar level and keep it stable. Whereas, foods like Spinach and Lentils which both contain a great source of iron, helps your body to not only make energy, but also boosts your energy by keeping the flow of oxygen in the brain and throughout the body. As it relates to feminine health, these fatty acids help to effectively treat menstrual cramps (even better than medication), promotes circulation and help to relieve vaginal dryness, and is good for your sex drive too. Who knew?

‘A’ is for Apple! But more importantly, apples help to keep your metabolism revved, your blood sugar leveled, and energy at it’s peak. Plus, they contain phytoestrogen phloridzin and antioxidants which help to stimulate vaginal blood flow and keep things functioning correctly down below! But did you know that apples are good for a women’s sex drive? Yup. They promote better sex function, lubrication, and increases your ability to have an orgasm. Crazy stuff! Need I say more?
Here is a delicious Apple Cinnamon Crumble Pull Apart Bread recipe which is vegan and the perfect sweet treat to enjoy after or in between meals if you please.

Last but not least, we have the very popular—Avocado! While this fruit has been a top trend since 2017, it definitely has some great benefits outside from just being versatile and tasting good. They are full of fiber and healthy fats, which are digested slower, which in turn provides our bodies with sustainable energy. However, when it comes to women’s health, this food’s presence of healthy fats, Vitamin B-6, and potassium, all have a positive effect on our libido. How? Well, for one, they enhance lubrication and increase our estrogen levels. Secondly, they strengthen our vaginal walls. Double win! So be sure to slap on a few spoons of guacamole the next time you eat something that goes well with Avocados.
