What to eat to help with body odour
Sweet smelling choices
Eat more Zinc and Magnesium. These minerals play an important role in our biological well-being, they are the natural perfumes of our body and help us to smell good.
- Zinc is found in our body fluids, so if you cry or sweat, you lose zinc. Deficiency increases bad breath and body odour. Eat more: sesame and pumpkin seeds, almonds, brazil and pine nuts.
- Magnesium helps to balance the metabolism and control excessive sweat. Eat more: spinach, broccoli, fish, beans and lentils.
- Chlorophyll-rich greens, like spinach and water cress, act like an internal deodorant to freshen up the body. Mint and parsley will help too.
