Many people think that excessive sweating causes body odor. That’s not true.Approximately 99% content of sweat is pure water that does not cause odor. Bacteria and fungi that break down tertentulah sweat and release chemicals that easily evaporate and spread the odo.


Body odor in medium levels are common. We just feel annoyed when levels are excessive. Any imbalance in the body can cause excessive body odor:

Dietary imbalance. Magnesium or zinc deficiency and eating too much meat, many foods that contain choline (eggs, fish liver, and beans), onion, garlic, jengkol, certain spicy foods, coffee and alcohol, fried and fatty foods can cause bad body.
Emotional stress. Sweat glands in the armpits and groin issue a viscous substance that causes body odor. Substance that contains proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids are generally more outgoing when she was experiencing emotional stress (anger, fear, excitement). If not immediately take a bath, the bacteria will break down the substance that causes body odor.
The fluctuation of hormones. Bad body odor can also be triggered by hormonal fluctuations such as in children who are undergoing puberty and women who are experiencing menopause.
Genetic disorder. Certain people are genetically inclined to have a strong body odor.A rare genetic disorder called trimetilaminuria (or “fishy odor syndrome”), cause someone has a fishy odor on the breath, sweat and urine. This syndrome is caused by defects in the enzyme that breaks down the trimethyl-amine, a byproduct of protein digestion released by bacteria that exist in the gut.
Disease. Some diseases can cause bad body odor. One of the most common diseases that can cause body odor is a diabetic. This is especially true when the person is poorly controlled blood sugar, so develop a condition called ketoacidosis.These conditions not only cause bad breath body odor but also typical. Bad body odor can also be a sign of kidney disease or severe liver where the body is unable to process and release of certain toxins. This condition can be confirmed by blood tests that measure kidney function and liver. Sometimes, an overactive thyroid can also cause body odor problem because of the tendency of patients to excessive sweating.
