Sometimes good hygiene isn't enough to eliminate body odor. Here are the foods to watch for.

Body odor causes

Body odor is caused by the combined action of your sweat glands and the skin with volatile compounds you generate and bacterial activity. Many people think that sweat is the main cause of body odor but, believe it or not, sweat itself is completely odorless. Eating foods with certain chemical elements can seriously intensify that odor to an almost unbearable level.

David Pariser, M.D., a dermatologist, explains:

"Your body has two types of sweat glands. Eccrine glands produce the relatively stink-free watery sweat that covers your body after a tough workout. Apocrine glands, on the other hand, live in your underarms and groin, where they secrete oily substances that account for most of your body odor."
