6 Foods that Reduce Sweat
Tips to Stop Excessive Sweating with Diet
Do you sweat too much? If so, it may have something to do with what you’re eating OR not eating. In a past blog post, we highlighted which foods cause you to sweat… Now we’ll cover some of the foods that can actually help reduce excessive sweating:
The easiest and simplest trick on how to stop sweating (or reduce sweat) through diet is to stay hydrated with plenty of water. When your body is properly hydrated, it won’t have to work so hard to regulate your body temperature, and therefore, stop or reduce sweat.
2) Low-fat or Skim Milk
As much as you may love pouring whole milk all over your cereal in the morning, you may be adding to your sweat problem. Skim milk can get some getting-used-to after switching from high-fat milk, but it will be worth it when you start seeing less sweat under your arms. Not only is low-fat milk good for reducing the amount of sweat you produce, but it’s also good for your figure.
3) Calcium-rich Foods
Calcium, like other essential nutrients, keeps the body healthy and can help you sweat less. Calcium acts as a temperature regulator, so the more you eat, the less you will sweat. Here are just a few foods that are rich in calcium: low-fat yogurt, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, almonds, baked beans, and calcium fortified milk.
4) Fruits and Vegetables
You’ve heard that eating fruits and vegetables is good for you your whole life. These fresh foods not only are good for you, but they are also good at helping you reduce sweat. Fruits consist of about 80% water, which is great for keeping your body hydrated and they are easier for your body to digest. Grapes, grape juice, and tomato juice are all natural ways to combat sweat, along with any other water-rich fruits and vegetables.
5) Olive Oil
Unlike vegetable oils, olive oil works with your digestive system, letting your body use almost no effort to process it. Whenever your body has to work harder at digesting certain foods, you will almost always sweat more. Not only can olive oil help reduce sweat, but it also promotes healthy blood pressure and cholesterol. Olive oil is delicious and can be substituted pretty much anywhere you would normally use vegetable oil.
6) B vitamins
In order for you body to efficiently carry out important processes such as metabolic functioning and inter-nerve communication, it needs eight essential B vitamins. Together, these B vitamins are known as the B-complex vitamins. If your body doesn’t enough of these B-complex vitamins, it has to work harder, causing you to sweat more. Here are just a few vitamin B rich foods: whole grains (breads, cereals), proteins (fish, eggs, nuts, meat), and vegetables (avocado, sweet potato, carrots, peas).
