Anxiety, dehydration, stress, hormonal imbalances can all cause vaginal dryness collectively. This also happens when a woman is going through menopause and her estrogen levels drop.

Vitamin E

Research studies have shown that Vitamin E is beneficial for increasing vaginal lubrication and reducing vaginal dryness. There was a research study among 52 women for about 12 weeks that took Vitamin E, and the result is they improved lubrication in their vagina and had less dryness.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is known for impacting bone health. But research studies have shown it can also improve vaginal lubrication. There was a review in 6 studies that Vitamin D supplements can decrease vaginal dryness and improve vaginal tissue and health during menopause. There was another study on 44 postmenopausal women that used Vitamin D daily for 8 weeks. And the result is it decreased vaginal dryness compared to the control group.

Another study in 200 older women that took Vitamin D increase improvements in their vaginal moisture.

Fish Oil

Fish oil is a supplement that is used to increase your Omega 3 fatty acids. It is considered a heart healthy fat. Research studies have shown that getting your Omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil has increased your estrogen levels and the result is preventing vaginal dryness.

DHEA

There are some older studies that have shown that DHEA supplementation increases estrogen levels. And multiple studies have shown that vaginal administration of DHEA can improve female lubrication and reduce dryness.
