Strong or offensive body odor is a sensitive topic, and an embarrassing problem that affects many people.
The way to eliminate body odor is not to mask it with unhealthy deodorant products, but rather to clean up your body from the inside out. The human body has many systems that are constantly at work, and waste byproducts are just a natural part of that process. Each person's unique body odor can be influenced by diet, gender, health, and medication. Body odor usually becomes an issue when a human reaches puberty - 14-16 years of age in females and 15-17 years of age in males.
It is important for the body to be able to sweat, as the function of our sweat glands is to excrete toxins from your body, which makes sweating an important part of maintaining optimum physical health. People who sweat too much (hyperhidrosis) may also be susceptible to body odor, however, often the salt level of their sweat is too high for the bacteria to break down, so it depends where the excess sweating is occurring and which type of sweat glands are involved. Sweat itself is virtually odorless to humans, but the rapid multiplication of bacteria in the presence of sweat and that they break sweat down into acids, that eventually causes an unpleasant smell. A less common condition known as hypogonadism is caused when males have abnormally low levels of testosterone due to improperly working testicles.  This can result in similar side effects to menopause, including hot flashes.
Lesson number one in when it comes to Body Odor is that what comes out of your body, reflects what you put in.
What we eat plays a significant role in not only body odor, but foot odor and bad breath as well.
Foods commonly associated with odor issues include red meat, seafood, egg yolks, garlic, onions, beans, asparagus, cabbage, and spices such as mustard seed and coriander. Over consumption of these foods can lead to increased body odor. Foods rich in the amino acid carnitine (found in beef and pork) are known to leave residues in the intestines which have to be worked on by the natural digestive flora.
Red meat causes stagnation in the body because it putrefies in the digestive tract and releases toxins into the bloodstream through the large intestine.
Manufactured foods, such as those yummy items that are lacking fiber and made with refined white flour, added sugars, hydrogenated oils and other processed ingredients are the big culprits.
This happens because a plant-based diet is an internal deodorizer, as chlorophyll and other phytonutrients will cleanse you from the inside out.
This is pretty much a "no brainer." Bathing at least once a day can help limit the bacteria population on your skin, which is the source of most body odors.
Vinegar is a natural antiseptic and can help kill bacteria and fungi on the skin's surface. Researchers since the 1960s have known about the antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties of the medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil. Many deodorants and antiperspirants are made with aluminum to stop perspiration of the sweat glands, but aluminum is suspected of accumulating in the nervous system and contributing to disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. Remember that your armpits have an important health function, which is to get rid of toxins.
Various herbal and crystal deodorants are marketed as all-natural and can effectively control your body odor. Tablets containing chlorophyll are available, and are made from plants like kelp, barley grass, and blue-green algae (Spirulina & Chlorella). Many individuals complaining of body odor do not completely digest particular foods because of enzyme deficiencies or digestive problems. Eating fresh citrus, such as lemons, limes and oranges, can also help limit musky smells that can linger on the skin. The acids in citrus fruits help flush water through the body, and because they also contain fiber, they flush out toxins that contribute to body odors.


Antioxidant-rich tea is the wonder drink du jour and, it's also good at keeping stinky feet in check.
Tea also benefits your oral cavity as well, because it controls inflammation, fights bacterial infection and are also rich in antioxidants. Green tea has been associated with better-smelling breath because it kills the microbes that create a foul odor. If you take off your shoes at the end of the day and noticed they smell, that's because closed-toe shoes can hold in odors, and provide a breeding ground for bacteria.

Although commercial chemicals and artificial-scent sprays may help to temporarily control body odor, they won't eliminate the underlying cause.
In other words, if your armpits have a horrible raunchy smell, that's an indication your diet needs some adjusting. Understanding some of the causes of body odor will help provide you with a highly effective approach to treat this common problem.
People who are obese, as well as individuals with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, are more susceptible to having body odor. You have to give your body a chance to get rid of various toxins through a variety of metabolic processes which include urination, passing fecal matter, exhaling carbon dioxide and other toxins through the lungs, and, of course, eliminating toxins through the skin. Yeast conditions such as candida can produce a beer-like smell since yeast can turn sugar into alcohol quickly within the body.
Specific enzymes in the body break the residues down to an odorless state ready for excretion, but if levels are low, missing, or bowel flora is disturbed, a “fishy” body odor can result. People who consume a large quantity of red meat on a regular basis tend to have much stronger body odor than those who avoid it. When you eliminate these from your diet and shift to a meal plan made of whole grains, leafy green vegetables, fresh fruits, non-gmo soy products, supergreens, sprouts, raw nuts and seeds, healthy oils and other similar healthful ingredients, your body odor will all but disappear in a matter of weeks.
Some of the best foods for that include parsley, cilantro, celery and all of the mint species, as well as sage, rosemary, thyme and oregano. Spritzing, rubbing or dabbing on white or apple cider vinegar on odorous areas, then wiping the area dry can help to eliminate offensive smells.
Research has shown that microorganisms that are inactivated include bacteria, yeast, fungi, and enveloped viruses.
Crystal deodorants are formulated from ammonium alum are especially popular, however, scientists at the Argonne National Laboratory warn that there's no government regulations or rules regarding the use of the word "natural," and all products can be labeled as "natural." Organic products are usually the best choice, so if you're wishing to avoid a specific chemical or ingredient, check the ingredient list. Green, leafy vegetables are rich in chlorophyll, and have a powerful deodorizing effect on the body. Parsley is also credited with anti-odor properties, and making parsley tea is also very helpful. Now, this has a very strong taste, and some people may feel nauseated the first time they try it. Check the label for the dosage recommendation, and most effective when taken internally, these items have the unique ability of binding to various odor causing compounds in the body.


So for regular support, persons with body odor should consume more probiotics to help boost intestinal flora. The strong oils they contain help to overpower offensive odors by acting like a mouthwash, and leave behind a pleasant aroma. The tannic acids found in both green and black teas will help keep your feet dry, thus preventing the root of your foot odor problem which is perspiration. The University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Dentistry measured the level of smelly compounds in people’s mouths after they were given green-tea powder or another substance that supposedly helps with bad breath. It's normal and natural for feet to perspire, and tight, unbreathable shoes trap sweat that eventually causes a smell. If you feel that you have a medical problem, you should seek the advice of your Physician or health care Practitioner. It is best to learn about more natural remedies and lifestyle changes to manage this problem and provide a fresher and cleaner scent. The digestive process results in waste, our skin sweats to excrete waste, and the cells in the body are constantly replacing themselves. Body odor is most likely to occur in our feet, groin, armpits, genitals, pubic hair and other hair, belly button, anus, behind the ears, and to some lesser extent on the rest of our skin. Medical tests at Imperial College in London has shown that some people with body odor have ‘friendly bacteria’ imbalances. Items like sulfides and other organic compounds have pungent odors and as food is broken down, these compounds are absorbed into the body and released through the skin and sweat.
Some people have argued that fact, and stated that vegetarians stink because they run around wearing no deodorant, but in my experience, if a vegetarian has noticeable body odor, they aren't following a healthy diet even though they are avoiding meat.
Start by steeping a teaspoon of chopped fresh parsley in a cup of boiling water for five minutes. Cornstarch is a good fix for the problem because the powder absorbs excess moisture and neutralizes odor. Dangers can arise when we use 'antiperspirant' deodorants as these block the pores and do not allow the toxins to come out. Often times vegetarians eat very processed foods that are chemically altered and manipulated to taste, look like animal products.
As an added bonus, the granules are soft and more comfortable on the feet, so beat stinky feet by sprinkling cornstarch into your shoes. Since the tannins in tea are less drying than the acids in vinegar, you can try this remedy once a day. Note: Tea leaves may stain skin, but a quick wash with soap and water will remove discoloration.
