Are people who sweat more are healthier? Thanks
Sweating is the body’s way of cooling itself off and maintaining a healthy temperature. People are born with sweat glands. Fit people sweat more efficiently by sweating sooner during workouts, when their body temperature is lower. However, a sedentary person working at the same intensity will heat up a lot faster and possibly sweat more. Also, overweight people sweat more profusely than normal weight individuals because fat acts as an insulator that raises core temperature. So, its not that people who sweat more are healthier. Thanks
