    Toxic Sweat


    Do any of you guys have really bad sweating issues? My sweat doesn't smell, but if I workout in a shirt a lot it gets a really horrible smell that doesn't go away even after washing. Like, it smells fine out of the washer/dryer, but as soon as I sweat in it again it reaks horribly. I just don't get it. It's really gross. But like I said, when I sweat, my body doesn't smell. I only noticed it after I did my first cycle of gear. I'm not currently on nor have I been for two years, yet I still have this problem.

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueler? Bueler?

    I had this issue and couldnt get it to go away until I stopped taking all of my supps a while back so i'm not sure what the reason was. Maybe inflammed kidneys or something?

    My only staple supplements are vitamins, and whey/casein. I take other stuff besides that, but only for short lengths. I have no idea what is causing it. It's already ruined all my workout tshirts.

    Not a bad idea. I guess it's pointless to buy nice shirts for working out if this happens.

    l-citruline actually helps take away the stench from your sweat, or take a shower.

    I've been training MMA/BJJ for about 10 years. I've ALWAYS had this problem with my gi. No clue why, but it'll smell fine out of the wash, then the next time I roll it smells like a homeless guy pissed on it!

    Bleach occasionally works, but it destroys the fabric and you smell like a swimming pool.

    Hockey equipment is the same way. I think the bacteria survives the wash and regenerates when it gets wet again. Dunno?
