Thanksgiving in upon us! Monray Antiperspirant wants to provide several sweat survival tips to help you avoid foods that can increase sweat. November 20, 2015 17:07

Potent-smelling food sticks with you. If you suffer from excessive sweat, that cheddar-and-onion-burger-on-a-garlic-and-jalapeno-bun will rise again, in the form of dangerously potent body odor. While you might not smell exactly like the pungent food you enjoyed a few hours ago, the powerful aroma molecules which made your meal so smelly in the first place will happily do the same for you.

Avoid These Stinky Foods to Avoid Smelly Sweat:

GARLIC

A bundle of garlic may wart of vampires… Unfortunately, it won’t do your breath or sweaty pits any favors. Avoid garlic to reduce the scent of your body odor. If you can’t keep yourself from the garlic, substitute dry garlic.

ONIONS

Raw onions, though tasty, pack quite the punch. Go for the cooked variety when possible and choose white onions over yellow and purple onions when shopping. The darker the onion, the stronger the scent.

FATTY & FRIED FOODS

Odors bind to fats and oils. When these are expelled through your apocrine glands, the odors bind to you. So, unless you want to smell like the local burger barn, keep away from the fried and fatty.

 

CURRY

A double threat! Not only will spicier curries induce thermoregulatory sweating, they’ll stink it up too.

You don’t have to give up everything on the list–some of the foods listed may not even affect you! Everyone’s body chemistry is different, so it’s important to be mindful of any correlation between what you’re eating and how you’re smelling.

There are others as well. Cabbage or leaf veggies: Collards, Mustards. Stay away from cured meats. They can spike your heat index as well.

Happy Eats.
