The Benefits of Sweating

Tuesday, 03 Sep 2013 09:21 AM

Recent studies indicate that with a minor name change, the band Blood, Sweat & Tears could have toured as the cleanest rock 'n' roll group ever! You see, Blood, Sweat and Urine are three major vehicles for moving potentially harmful toxins out of the body (tears do clear out toxins, though just a small amount).

Your blood carries impurities to the lungs, where some are exhaled; urine washes impurities out through the kidneys; and sweat - it pours out of two to four million sweat glands all over your body and helps to clear out some of the most dangerous toxins you ingest.

New studies reveal that hormone-disruptors in plastics called BPA and phthalates in everything from shampoos to soaps and detergents appear to be preferentially excreted through sweat. And you're lucky to get rid of them: They're linked to everything from abnormal testicular development to obesity, ADHD and cancer.

To get the cleansing benefits of sweat:
  • Enjoy a sauna, steam bath and/or a hot bath. You'll detoxify while you de-stress - another great boost to your health.
  • Go aerobic. Aim for at least 10,000 steps a day; some at an intense, sweaty pace; take a spin class or play tennis. Any activity (almost every day, please!) that makes you perspire for at least 20 minutes is beneficial.
  • Get passionate! You can lower your risk for heart disease, improve your mood, fuel your muscles and break a sweat with regular tumbles in the hay (try for 20 minutes here, too).
