Recently, we looked at what happens when we sweat and why ionized alkaline water from a water ionizer is SO awesome for replenishing our bodies when we do sweat.
But did you know that men and women sweat differently?
Do You Glow or Sweat?
There’s an old saying that may or not have emanated from the rather buttoned-up sensibilities of Victorian England: ‘horses sweat, men perspire, but ladies merely glow.’
Over the years, this saying has been interpreted through the widespread perception that women are “delicate flowers” who don’t “sweat” like their male counterparts do.
But here’s the thing. Recent studies reveal that the Victorians might have been on to something.
Men Sweat More Than Women!
The clinical trial consisted of 20 women and 17 men with varying levels of physical training status, cycling on a static machine in a heated gym at 86°F for one hour.
The result? Men produce a greater volume of sweat per gland than women – even though men and women have the same number of active sweat glands in their bodies.
On average, the men started perspiring faster than the women. By the middle of the trial, the men were perspiring twice as much as the women while in the middle of exercising.
The men who demonstrated the highest physical training status perspired the most, while the same factor used was less prominent in the ‘glowing’ group of women who demonstrated the highest physical training status as the men.
This can make men look less cool than women while working out in the gym – but this means that men’s bodies are working more effectively.
That’s a lot of sweat to be lost!
Perspiration and Evolution
Dr. Yoshimitsu Inoue led the study and concluded that evolution has a hand in why women merely ‘glow’ while their male counterparts are dripping with perspiration.
“Women generally have less body fluid than men and may become dehydrated more easily.” – Dr. Yoshimitsu Inoue
Our knowledge of the human body has moved with incredible pace over the last hundred years or so, but when it comes to how differently we sweat, the Victorians called it first!
Handy Hydration Checklist!
Whether you’re a man or a woman; whether you sweat, perspire or glow, hydration is everything.
Here’s a quick checklist of a few of the awesome benefits of being hydrated:
- Glowing, plumped-up skin
- Better mood
- Improved mental focus
- Appetite control
- Healthier bowel movements
- Cardiovascular health
You can get the best hydration just by using a Tyent water ionizer machine that can create alkaline water that contains molecular hydrogen (H2).
Tyent Water Ionizers Help You Hydrate Faster
Alkaline water hydrates you faster and more efficiently than regular water, helping you to keep exercising and recovering at an optimal level.
What’s more, every glass of alkaline water from one of Tyent’s award-winning water ionizers contains essential bio-available minerals and molecular hydrogen bubbles that taste great – so be sure to drink the hydrogen bubbles in the water fast so that you can reap all of the benefits.
