Body odour – Risk factor: metabolic disorder

Body odour – Risk factor: metabolic disorder

The side effect of fasting – unpleasant body odour

People who regularly fast are familiar with the typical fasting or diet odour, which is reminiscent of nail polish remover. The trigger for this unpleasant body odour is the partial reduction of body fat caused by a lack of carbohydrates. The body needs at least 50 g of carbohydrates a day to be able to convert fat into glucose.

If not, the body forms ketones which are exhaled in the form of strong-smelling acetone. This odour-related consequence is also evident with low carbohydrate diets.

Tips: What can you do to combat this body odour?

  • Instead of putting yourself through crash and starvation diets, your eating habits should be adjusted to a low-calorie mixed diet in the long-term
  • Unpleasant body odours do not occur or they occur less, if you ensure that you have a sufficient supply of carbohydrates
  • Stozzon Chlorophyll Dragees can prevent the formation of fasting odours from the inside out; because of their tolerance you can also take them whilst you are on a diet.
