When you’re not 100 percent confident, worry can take you right out of the moment when it comes to sex — especially when you’re worried about the state of things down there.
As long as you’re healthy, everything down there should be good to go. But knowing that you’ve gone the extra mile to make things down there amazing can give you an additional boost of confidence. That boost can come from these foods that have a great reputation for helping you smell and taste great. But don’t just have them for dinner the evening your significant other comes over. Try to work these foods into your diet as often as you can for the best results.
Stock your refrigerator with probiotics. A cup a day has a great reputation for keeping your vaginal ecosystem from getting imbalanced, which can make things smell and taste “off.”
It’s the salty base that makes miso soup so great, and it’s as good as yogurt at keeping things balanced thanks to its probiotics. Be sure to order a bowl the next time you order sushi. You can also buy the paste online or at the store and try it in your own recipes.
“Strong” is never a word you want associated with the smell of your lady parts. Drinking eight glasses a day keeps things flushed and diluted.
You can sprinkle flaxseeds on everything from yogurt to salads. They have a mild, nutty flavor and they’re great for increasing vaginal moisture to keep things flowing when dryness is a problem. Need an easier option? There’s always flaxseed oil.
There are no scientific studies to back this one up, but we’ve heard so many women swear by pineapple so often that we didn’t see a reason not to include it.
In fact, most sweet-smelling fruits have a reputation for lending you their smell and improving the taste of things down there, so go ahead and make the most of that pineapple you just bought.
Because it’s a great antioxidant, green tea can help balance things out after a yeast infection.
Physicians say that you can’t ignore the evidence that sweet-tasting vegetables keep things sweet down there, too.
This sweet herb can tone done the sharp notes in personal flavor and bring out sweetness. For the best results, have whole mint leaves chopped in a fruit salad, blended in a smoothie or used to make tea.
Stay away from processed and fried foods that are notorious for giving you a tang. Your diet will help to give you the confidence you need to relax and have fun.
