… That human beings are the sweatiest of all mammals? The remarkable temperature regulation and cooling capability provided by our sweaty skin has enabled the human brain to evolve to it’s modern size and processing capability.
Sweating has many benefits to it. One of the most efficient ways to detox your body — without the juicing — is to sweat. Sweating can flush the body of substances of alcohol, cholesterol, and salt. The body releases toxins by using sweat as the conduit. Not only that. Prolonged sweating that is expected during an intense workout or even brisk walking in the sun will increases the level of the “feel-good” endorphin hormones that are naturally released during physical activity.
The benefits don’t stop there. Sweating can be an effective way to sweat out the salt and retain calcium in your bones. This limits the accumulation of salt and calcium in the kidneys and urine, which is where the stones come from. It is no coincidence people who sweat tend to drink more water and fluids, which is another prevention method for kidney stones.
Perspiring can actually help fight tuberculosis germs and other dangerous pathogens. Dr. Diane De Fiori, a dermatologist at the Rosacea Treatment Clinic in Melbourne, Australia, told Medical Daily in an email: “Sweat contains antimicrobial peptides effective against viruses, bacteria, and fungi. These peptides are positively charged and attract negatively charged bacterial, enter the membranes of bacteria, and break them down.”
So next time you exercise think about all the good things you do for your body. But please also consider others and when you move don’t spread the sweat 😉
