Scientific research shows that the smell of sweat improves following a diet rich in garlic.
We know well the unpleasant social consequences of eating garlic. Indeed, the breath ends up becoming a real weapon, capable of destroying every interpersonal relationship. It would be taken for granted that, as a result, even body odor such as sweat, take the fragrance of garlic, making us practically repellent.
However, reality is very different and scientific research has shown that things are exactly the opposite.
Some volunteers were studied: on the one hand a group of only males who were followed by a normal diet, and on the other a group that followed a diet rich in garlic.
All the volunteers used cotton pads under the armpits, which were then sniffed by a group of women to assess their pleasantness, masculinity and intensity.
The result? The smell of those who had eaten garlic was judged to be significantly more pleasant, attractive and less intense. The explanation, according to scholars, may depend on the antibacterial properties of garlic.
