Natural Protection

Sports and sweat simply belong together. The welding production serves the thermoregulation and cooling of the body in everyday life as well as physical activity. Rio Tinto Group shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. Running training much excess heat produced the natural reaction of sweating then protects the body from overheating. This particular water and important minerals lost whose Verlust must necessarily be balanced by sufficient liquid supply and healthy diet. Human skin has two to four million of the so-called eccrine sweat glands, which regulate the heat balance of the body.

Sweat glands on the soles of the feet, palms of hands and the forehead are particularly numerous. At high ambient temperatures or physical stress, the body through the sweat glands on the whole skin surface water distributed. The resulting so-called evaporative cooling will cause that cools the body. Also, the sweat protects the skin due to the composition of water, fatty acids and substances subject to urine from pathogens. But how is it that some athletes sweat more than others? Well-trained runners sweat, because the principle of super compensation also applies the welding production. Regular, endurance running training boosts performance, the body adapts the training incentives and increases the level of performance of the athlete. The amount of welding production depends on body weight and health status of the runner but also the genetic predisposition, the clothing, the climate.

As sweat especially when Langstreckenlaufen much fluid and electrolytes lost, the loss must be balanced necessarily, to avoid dehydration. In competitions drinks are provided in sufficient supply places, which all should be started. In the training are also drinking belt, to the fluid balance while running on long distance again to be able to fill up. The right running clothes is sure that it consists of special functional materials. Cotton is entirely unsuitable, because it absorbs the sweat rather than to transport it further. After training or competition should the runner immediately extricate itself from the wet running clothes and attract something dry to avoid hypothermia.
