Did you know that scientists are just discovering that people smell with their entire bodies! It turns out that humans have more than a trillion olfactory sensors all over the body. These smell sensors contribute to every aspect of our internal life: from directing sperm towards an egg, regulating metabolism & blood pressure by guiding the good bacteria (microbiota) in your gut, to helping your lungs sense and respond to inhaled chemicals floating in the air.
What science has also proven is that each of us has a unique “odor world” in the sense that we each smell a completely different world. The smell receptors in your nose are influenced not only by genetics but also by your smell experience, exposure and general health & well-being. How you perceive a smell and its overall intensity is, in fact, as unique as your own fingerprint.
It may, however, also be ethnocentric. It turns out that only 80% of the world actually experiences what we commonly think of as BO. People from China, Japan, Korea and other parts of northeast Asia simply do not secrete the odorless precursors that bacteria loves to bond to and produce the smells associated with ripe armpits.
So what to do for the 80% of us that experience the occasional BO funk inevitable with athletic excellence? Antiperspirants and deodorants provide temporary relief, but RAW APPLE CIDER or RAW BANANA VINEGAR are natural remedies for body odor among their many amazing properties.
Raw fruit vinegars neutralise the alkaline environment and balance the pH levels of the body creating a hostile environment for the formation of the bacteria that makes your sweat stink. The enzymes in raw, unfiltered vinegar also help control excessive sweating and remove toxins from the body. The buildup of toxins in the body slow the functioning of the liver and kidneys, which in turn results in foul body odor. Raw vinegars contain many essential enzymes, trace minerals, pectin and beneficial bacteria that aid in proper digestion. Ingesting these vinegars helps to detox the body thereby preventing body odor by nipping digestive disorders in the gut.
