5 Foods That Could Secretly Be Giving You Body Odor

We tend to associate body odor with a lack of hygiene or excessive sweating. But there are actually several other factors that can contribute to an unpleasant bodily smell.

This awkward condition may also be associated with health problems like diabetes, liver problems or even your eating habits. In today’s video we’re going to show you a few foods that can contribute to your body odor:

Legends say that garlic can scare away vampires, and that’s because it can actually scare off humans. Sulfur has a terrible smell that manifests itself through our sweat after it’s been digested. Bell peppers, radishes, onions, and cabbages are other foods that are rich in sulfur. All of these foods have health benefits, but you have to limit their intake if you want to avoid bad odors.

Milk products
Cheese is very hard to digest, and can end up altering your body odor. Furthermore, cow and goat’s milk, due to their slower digestion, causes fermentation progress that may make you sweat more than usual. It's the perfect combination for body odor.

If you observe the tomato closely, you'll see that it almost smells like sweat. This is due to some compounds called terpenes that can, in fact, alter your body odor, making it worse.

Red meat
Just like milk, red meat is digested slowly in our stomach, and our intestines have a hard time absorbing it. So, when it begins to decompose, it can negatively affect both your flatulence and your bowel movements. If you're opposed to the idea of not eating red meat, then you should at least reduce your intake to a maximum of twice a week.

Eating fish can also cause bad body odor. Trimethylamine oxide, the compound that gives fish their smell, is released through our breath and sweat, altering the smell of both.
