    Zoe Bingley-Pullin: Get Sweaty! The benefits of exercise and sauna use

    Sweating is the body’s built-in air conditioning system. When our internal temperature rises, our sweat glands release water to the surface of our skin. As the perspiration evaporates, it cools the skin and blood underneath. Sweat arises from one of three instances - when we exercise, when we have a fever, or when we are anxious and stressed.

    We all have around 4 million sweat glands that excrete a mixture of water, salt, amino acids and other substances. The exact composition of sweat varies from person to person based on hormone balance, physiological changes, and any bacteria and viruses in the body.

    Chronic inflammation on the other hand, is long-term, lasting from several months to years. It can result from a failure to eliminate the cause of an acute inflammation, an autoimmune disorder, long term exposure to an irritant (such as an industrial chemical), or recurrent episodes of acute inflammation.
