Body odor can often be a problem and even be embarrassing in certain situations. It is often associated with excess sweating, but the truth is that it is not the sweat that causes body odor.

Ginger can help to eliminate these toxins so that you can you can reduce your odor as well.
What is Ginger?
Ginger is a spice that can be used for many medicinal purposes such as a pain reliever, stomach problems and reduce inflammation. It is grown commercially in the warmer climates of the world, but you can also grow it in pots indoors or in greenhouses if you live in a cooler climate. However, you can also purchase fresh ginger in most grocery stores year round.

This causes all the released toxins which are in your body to be removed from your body through your sweat. Thus you will see an increase in your body odor temporarily, but once the ginger wears off you will notice a reduction in your the odor.
To take advantage of this you can drink ginger tea or add ginger to your foods. It will take a while before all of your toxins are eliminated from the body, so that you will no longer have to worry about the foul odor.
Another way that ginger can help you to fight body odor is by using it in your bath water. Simply grate about 1/4 cup fresh ginger and add it to your hot bath water. The ginger works together with the hot water to promote sweating and eliminate the toxins from your body.
