Benefits of Sweating

Boosts Endorphins: Exercising increases the level of the “feel-good” endorphin hormones that are naturally released during physical activity. A  study published in the journal Biology Letters found group workouts actually increase endorphin levels and cause less pain for those who work out together than those who train alone. Sweating it out during a group exercises like Jazzercise or hot Yoga can help put a smile on your face.

Detoxifies Body: One of the most efficient ways to detox your body — without the juicing is to sweat. Sweating can flush the body of substances such as, cholesterol, and salt. The body releases toxins by using sweat as the conduit. Sweat eliminations the body of toxins that can clog pores and plague the skin with pimples and blemishes.

Lowers Kidney Stone Risk: Sweating can be an effective way to sweat out the salt and retain calcium in your bones. This limits the accumulation of salt and calcium in the kidneys and urine, which is where the stones come from. It is no coincidence people who sweat tend to drink more water and fluids, which is another prevention method for kidney stones.  Sweating helps flush out the system more efficiently because it demands more hydration from the body.

 Prevents Colds and Other Illnesses: Perspiring can actually help fight germs or sickness.  Dr. Diane De Fiori, a dermatologist at the Rosacea Treatment Clinic in Melbourne, Australia, told Medical Daily in an email: Sweat contains antimicrobial peptides effective against viruses, bacteria, and fungi. These peptides are positively charged and attract negatively charged bacterial, enter the membranes of bacteria, and break them down.

Sweating does have its pros and cons when it comes to your health. To avoid sweating profusely, avoid triggers such as caffeine and wearing natural materials. 

Remember, it’s OK to sweat it out when you dance or workout.
