Some supplements that may help with body odor are activated charcoal, which can absorb gas in your intestines, and probiotics, which can improve your gut flora and digestion. However, before taking any supplements, you should consult your doctor or a pharmacist to make sure they are safe and suitable for you.
• Activated charcoal: This is a substance made from carbon that has been treated to increase its surface area and porosity. It can bind to various substances in your digestive tract, including gas, toxins and bacteria, and help eliminate them from your body. It may help reduce body odor by absorbing some of the compounds that cause it. However, it may also interfere with the absorption of some medications and nutrients, so you should take it at least 2 hours before or after other drugs or supplements. You should also drink plenty of water when taking activated charcoal to prevent dehydration or constipation.
• Probiotics: These are live microorganisms that can benefit your health by improving your gut flora and digestion. They may help reduce body odor by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria and enhancing the breakdown of food waste in your colon. However, not all probiotics are equally effective and some people may experience side effects such as gas, bloating or diarrhea when taking them. You should choose a probiotic supplement that contains strains that have been proven to be beneficial for your condition and follow the dosage instructions carefully.
