Eating a healthy diet strengthens your pelvic floor and ensures it is properly repaired. Eating foods high in natural estrogens also helps.
Such foods include:
1. Carrots, berries and apples
These fruits are rich in natural estrogens, which are also found in fenugreek, sesame, pomegranate, soybean and its products.
2. Whole wheat and oats
It’s easy to find in bread and pasta products, but make sure the label says “100 percent whole wheat”. Oats are particularly rich in avenanthramide, an antioxidant that protects the heart.
These natural products contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antipruritic, anti-irritant and antiatherogenic activities. Oat kernel extracts with standardized avenanthramide levels are ideal for skin, hair, babies and of course your vagina.
Corn can be extremely healthy for you when whole. Whole grains are good sources of B vitamins, magnesium, and phosphorus. It is also believed to promote healthy intestinal flora, which can fight off diabetes, heart disease, and chronic inflammation.
Like the type we have in Nigeria, yellow corn is also high in antioxidants.
Fish, especially small fish including salmon, mackerel, and sardines, are omega-3 anti-inflammatory foods that are correlated with better brain, hormone, and nervous system health.
They help fight cancer and also help tighten the vaginal wall and muscles again.
Small, perfectly portioned, cheap and super practical. There’s a reason bodybuilders eat eggs by the dozen.
With 6 grams in a large egg, they pack the perfect protein punch. They are also one of the few foods that are considered “complete protein” as they contain all 9 essential amino acids as well as vitamins A, B, E, calcium, zinc and iron.
