Why it’s good to sweat
Our skin is the largest organ in the body. Sweating is the easiest way to remove toxins and metabolic waste from our body, but also regulate our body temperature. But sweating can also help us to protect our skin against ultraviolet radiation.
When you body can’t sweat properly and have lack of movement, it will cause an accumulation of toxins in the body over time will be part of body’s natural function and elimination process and this can lead to many different diseases. When toxins in the body build-up, it can also drive production of more free radicals through the body which can lead to harmful effects like advanced agings, contribute to the development of the cancer and degenerative conditions. All kind of waste in the body can cause inflammation and we don’t want that to happen. When you sweat, you breathe faster, your heart works more, your circulation improves and your metabolism accelerates, all in an effort to resume your normal body temperature.
Our skin is a great message sender with any issues with our body. So when your body is doesn’t have elimination is needs, your skin will show signs. It will be shown as eczema, acne, oily or dry skin etc. Signs of proper elimination and detoxified system is soft, clear and hydrated skin. So get sweaty and let the pores of your skin open, so all the dirt will have a chance to exit. This process also strengthens your immune system.
“On the other hand, a fit person will start sweating earlier and easier. It may sound strange at first but as someone becomes fit, the body becomes more efficient at regulating the body’s temperature. When you start sweating earlier the body cools down faster, which releases extra body heat and allows you to work out harder for longer. Another theory suggests that during exercise, the body needs to pump more blood to the working muscles, which also stimulates the eccrine and apocrine glands.”
