Major deodorant brands often give sweat a bad rap. Their advertising campaigns are full of big wet armpit stains. The familiar mark of shame caused by excessive sweating. They want us to believe women and men are unattractive just because they sweat.
In truth, sweating is good for us!
It’s a natural detoxification for the body. According to Wikipedia; we need to sweat in order to control body temperature and prevent overheating.
Sweating also flushes toxins from the body. This is important as a major cause of kidney stones is a buildup of too much salt and calcium in the body. Sweat helps our body get rid of excessive salt.
The National Academy of Sciences is also researching how sweat carries microbes that prevent cold, flu and other viruses. Researchers have found natural antibiotic substances in sweat. Thanks to this research, we’ve discovered pesky viruses are no match for our ninja sweat glands.
Sweat cools us down, protects us from illness and lowers our risk of kidney stones. If this isn’t enough to convince you sweating is good, let’s cover one more benefit:
It helps get rid of zits. That’s right.
Sweat opens your pores and helps to unclog dirt and grime. However these benefits lose their effect for people suffering from hyperthyroidism, a condition know as excessive underarm sweating. If you have concerns, seek a medical professional.
While it’s important to sweat naturally; it’s also important to feel confident not worrying about odors. I recommend trying Fresh Pits Spray a natural deodorant with a lavender scent. The formula has no harmful chemicals and 100% vegan, but you don’t have to be vegan to love it!
