The habit of eating fruits frequently can help to keep the body system normalised and healthy. Nutritionists report that certain fruits can help enhance the wellbeing of hormones in the human body, which in turn, caters to some organs.

The vagina is not left out. Natural lubrication of the vagina is highly driven by the hormone oestrogen and functions as an important factor in both intimate intercourse and vaginal health.
However, the vagina is a self-protector and cleanser of its insides, which means the vagina is good at cleaning and protecting itself from external factors that can lead to vaginal dryness.
When the oestrogen levels of the female genital are low, it can result in making the vaginal tissue fragile, thin and dry, making sexual intercourse painful and less enjoyable.
The usage of lubricant products can help with vaginal dryness, but elements found in some lubricants can take away the natural moisture and make the dryness worse. Therefore, it is highly recommended to use lubes that enhance vaginal hydration.
Nonetheless, taking natural healthy measures to maintain vagina wellness is recommended.
