Body odour, also known as bromhidrosis, occurs when bacteria on the skin breakdown sweat into acids, which have a bad odour.  While sweat is generally odourless, some sweat glands, known as apocrine glands, produce substances (proteins, lipids, steroids), which are broken down by bacteria on the skin to produce odour. These sweat glands are found mostly around the armpit, nipples, genitals and anal region.

Having hypertension usually necessitates the need to be on blood pressure medication for life to achieve adequate blood control. Sometimes, more than one blood pressure pill is required to control  hypertension. People dread the need to rely on one or more pills and sometimes seek for non-medical ways to control  blood pressure. Taking these pills have been shown to be effective with a well-established side effect profile, which your doctor can monitor for possible change in medication. Notwithstanding, there are lifestyle changes that could limit or temporarily eliminate the need for pills.

Alcoholic beverages

It is common knowledge that prolonged intake of excessive amount of alcohol has adverse effects on various organ systems of the body including the brain, heart, liver and kidneys. This has been sufficiently proven by research and observations. There is, however, less research on the benefits of alcohol consumption particularly to the brain.
While low levels of alcohol consumption have been demonstrated to have some positive effects on the heart and overall cardiovascular system, a new study conducted in mice has shown that it could also be beneficial to the brain.
The study observed the effects of both high and low levels of alcohol consumption in mice over a long period of time. Over time, high levels of alcohol consumption demonstrated signs of inflammation in the brain, in addition to reduced cognitive function and motor skills. On the other hand, low levels of alcohol consumption pointed to less inflammation and increased waste/toxin removal in the brain compared to those with no alcohol intake.
