(www.extremisimo.net) Have you ever wondered, why do humans sweat? The transpiration in our body is a physiological function that allows to regulate its temperature in a value of approximately 37º, allowing the body to cool with sweat from the sweat glands, responsible for producing it.

Why is there a bad odor in the sweat? We tell you why

Under normal conditions we perspire 1 liter daily which can be increased to 10 liters per day if we suffer from hypertrichosis or also known as "werewolf syndrome" from excess hair.

The most common cases are perspiration due to physical exercise or as a consequence of warm weather. Another type of transpiration is the one produced by the emotions that in many cases is usually superior to the one produced by the physical activity (especially when we are nervous).

Because we sweat with bad smell?

This type of perspiration is mainly produced by the apocrine glands, they are activated at puberty, whose composition includes lipids and amino acids, which produce the bad smell as these substances are decomposed by the bacterial flora of the skin, ie the bacteria of the skin .

This type of perspiration is identified with the sweat produced by the emotions.

In the sweat produced by physical activity only the eccrine glands are involved and generally there is no bad smell.
