Taking good care of your health is a daily routine that you should always strive hard to achieve and make sure you look healthier, smell good, smart and perfect all the time. Apart from daily upkeep, there are a lot of things that you need to put in mind when it comes to maintaining your health. The armpits are usually seen as sensitive regions where bacteria hide and thrive. The type deodorant and antiperspirants you use will tell much more about your health and body maintenance. Are your armpits telling you something about your health? Yes, you can learn more about your health by carefully observing your armpits.
Recent research indicates that your health is determined by a lot of things that can be traced deep inside your gut. This affects your general body health and there is a need to be very careful with the type of foods you take as this also affects your armpits. According to the research, there is a new body bacterial obsession that should be keenly observed. The armpits are highly affected by deodorant or other antiperspirants that we use on a daily basis. These modern deodorants and antiperspirants can easily predict the kind of bugs that live and at the same time breed in your armpits. A research done by Time Reports indicated that the bacteria can easily affect your gut health by simply causing some disruption to your microbiome.
According to Julie Horvath, a scientist and head of the Genomics and Microbiology research lab at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, deodorant and antiperspirants are well-known for their close association with different types of patterns of bacterial growth that tend to take place in our armpits. Horvath explains that the use of antiperspirant and deodorant sprays tend to affect the bacteria type that tends to be attracted and later live in our armpits. The scientist informed The Time Reports that a majority of antiperspirant wearers carry fewer microbes when compared to those who use deodorants. The research pointed out that those who do not use these products carry fewer amounts of these bacteria in their armpits. If users stopped using the products, the number of the bacteria was recorded to reduce after some few days. “There’s so much more we need to learn,” said Horvath who is well known as a long-term user of a clinical strength antiperspirant.
There have been a number of reported cases in hospitals where deodorant and antiperspirant users complain of itchy feelings and change in their armpits. Though the manufacturers of these products usually indicate that if users notice the appearance of rashes in their armpits, they need to stop using them; few will easily stop since the condition usually eases after some few days of use. Horvath states that some of these products are dangerous since microbes and bacteria can easily affect individual’s health. She states that there is a need to have careful consideration and users need to be very careful on what they purchase when it comes to taking good care of their bodies. The scientist revealed that she no longer uses any of this deodorant or antiperspirant products. She is now using aluminum-free natural deodorant that is much favorable to the armpits and does not cause any of these alarming dangers.
We believe that this comes as breaking news to a majority of deodorant users and those who have been using the products but have never noticed any side-effects in their armpits. The truth of the matter is that microbes are small organisms that can never be seen with the naked eyes. Sure, the skin around your armpits may look naturally normal and perfect, but the research indicates that this affects your general health. It is important to think about those microbes that seriously affect your health. Users should also ponder on the next move. There are favorite natural options that when sued will offer users the best solution and help them enjoy a natural remedy that seeks to offer armpits the best health that they really deserve. The use of shampoos and conditioners has been termed as the most perfect and low-maintenance process that naturally seeks to offer busy women good health and better results that they really deserve. Are your armpits telling you something about your health? It’s time to start thinking much about the deodorant and antiperspirants you have been using.
