New Delhi: Body odour is mainly caused due to excessive use of deodorants, but sometimes, it can also be of food items. The food we eat also influences our body odour like our breath. The impurities and toxins in the body from improperly digested foods results in body odour.
But one can easily get rid of body odour by avoiding certain food items.
Here are some foods which you must avoid to get rid of body odour:
Eating too much spicy food leads causes bad odour because of the sulfurous gases produced when digested. One should eat a well-balanced meals that aren't too heavy on chillies, garlic, onions or piping hot curries.
Red meat causes stagnation in the body and also putrefies in the digestive tract and releases all sorts of toxins into the bloodstream through the large intestine. This in turn is ejected as flatulence and sweat that reeks.
Excessive consumption of alcohol causes body odour as atleast 10% of it will be left unprocessed causing perspiration.
Baked and fried foods
Consuming too much of baked and fried foods causes poor digestion, excessive belching and flatulence because they contain fats and oil which becomes rancid with the passage of time.
Too fibrous food
When you eat too much foods that contain soluble fiber like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans and legumes, gases like hydrogen, carbon dioxide and methane are released. These food items can give rise to pungent body smell.
