How To Kill All Unpleasant Body Odors With This Natural Drink
Do you ever wonder why you smell bad? The bacteria on your body and the sweat mixed together are what makes you smell bad.
Body odor is a smelly result our bodies give off when the bacteria that lives on the skin breaks down sweat into acids. It is the result of bacteria breaking down proteins into certain acids from the body that gives off that stinky smell. People who have diabetes, obese, or people who sweat too much tend to put off body odor. When we sweat it usually does not have a smell, the smell is created when bacteria break the sweat down into acids.
There are two types of acid that are present when there is body odor:
- Propionic acid: propionic acid is found in sweat, the propioni bacteria breaks down amino acids into propionic acid. The bacteria live in the ducts of the sweat glands of adults and adolescents. Some people may say that they smell a vinegar smell that’s because the acid that the body is putting off is similar to acetic acid, which gives vinegar its sour taste.
- Isovaleric acid: this is another source of body odor because of the bacteria Staphylococcus epidermis, which are present in several types of cheese that give them their distinct smell.
There are two types of sweat glands in the human body:
- Eccrine glands are a simple sweat gland that is located in all areas where there is skin on the body. These sweat glands produce sweat that reaches the skin’s surface because of the coiled ducts. When the sweat evaporates from the skin the body is cooled off, and the Eccrine glands are responsible for regulating the body’s temperature.
- Apocrine glands: these sweat glands are found in the breasts, genital area, eyelids, armpits, and the ears. Most apocrine glands are found in the breasts, groin, and armpits. The apocrine glands are responsible for body odor because the sweat they produce is high in protein so bacteria can break down easier.
