Sweat: Body Flicker
The cool down
Sweat: Body Flicker
Exercise and cardiovascular fitness are components of the human routines that benefit the skin with anti-bodies, endorphins, and enzymes that are feeding different parts of the body’s skin. Exercise lowers blood pressure, reduces weight, and controls cholesterol levels; it also acts as a conductor of endorphin release, T-cells release, Oxygen flow, and DHA. So what the heck is a T-cell? And now that we are questioning, what is DHA? T-Cells are white blood cells that fight bacteria, called lymphocytes. DHA is called Docosahexaenoic Acid and it is a substance in Omega-3 fatty acids. This substance is good for the skin and it is good for the brain’s cognitive functions like fighting depression.
The Newest studies to date that enhance skin are of a plant called “Garcinia Cambogia” it also helps with losing weight and is an” instant wrinkle reducer.” It is a plant that grows in Asia and in India which helps balance the digestive system, therefore aids the immune system and also impacts the DHA.
Exercise also fuses sweating in its function and sweating has a unique function on its own.
Many cancers are caused by chromosomal rearrangements in DNA (Schwartz, E. & Colman, C. Natural Energy (1998). Sweating has a primary function of acting as a temperature gauge that cools the body down and prevents it from overheating. The skin produces sweat in different ways by conductance, convection, and evaporation. Remember that the body is an electromagnetic sphere that the skin protects from bacteria and virus;’ that goes through a movement of changes constantly and continually adjusting and gauging temperatures to accommodate itself to its external environment.
For those of us that do not know what these three functions I mentioned above, I will explain their meaning:
· Conductance – The ability of the skin to conduct electricity, (during heating or under sun) is measured as the ratio of the current flowing through the skin to the potential difference across it. Skin conductance varies with the moisture (sweat) on the skin and has been used to evaluate arousal levels (Oxford dictionary of Sports Science & Medicine, http://www.answers.com/topic/skin-conductance).
· Convection - A mechanism where energy in the body experiences the heat from the sun and adjusts the skin to use the energy and oxygen (air) around and on the body to cool itself like giant thermo-conductor using oxygen in the air.
· Evaporation – Releases the sweating process where water and heat evaporate out of the pores in the skin to cool it down.
Myoglobin stores Oxygen in the muscle and Hemoglobin distributes the Oxygen in the bloodstream. Exercising the muscles and sweating cause these functions to exist within, throughout, and on the exterior of the skin called the epidermis and dermis. Glucose and our blood sugar also increases and decreases with the temperature changes.
As the blood is re-oxygenated when the body heats up and sweats it completes its tasks where the body is cooled and the blood is returned to the core of the body where it is re-oxygenated and redistributed to the vital organs of the body, the heart, liver, skin, and brain.
The skin relies on the immune system more than any other function in the body for the healthy and streaming blood flow that carries all the anti-bodies in the bloodstream, nutrients, keratin, and collagen to all of the skin on the entire body. Some areas need more keratin than others like the parts of the scalp where there is more hair. More hair could mean and a rougher scalp which is a tougher skin and a different molecular structure. Hair is also a substance of keratin and collagen growths (hair) they are very different structurally than its hairless (skin) counterparts.
We must hydrate and re-hydrate our bodies with the wonderfully crystal clear water, our bodies are 60% water and we need water to cool us down during the sweating processes.
Anti-bodies are a protein in the body that is produced in the blood that aids in fighting bacteria and virus, it is a primary function in the immune system, the anti-bodies are also released during the process of sweating (http://dictionary.reference.com).

Our body is made-up of 60% water, the brain is 70%, and the lungs are 90% water, lean muscle contains 75% water and the most important part is blood that contains a whopping 83% of water (http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/propertyyou.html).
