Control Body Odor Naturally

Most people are able to control their body odor, or BO, with a simple application of under arm deodorant. But for others, controlling BO can be a challenge. It can be an embarrassing problem to suffer from and is often caused by over active sweat glands or hyperhidrosis, though metabolic issues can also affect both the scent and frequency of sweating and body odor. It can also be a symptom of a disease such as diabetes, lung problems, high blood pressure, anxiety and tuberculosis.
