Which probiotic is best for reducing body odor? Eating yogurt, chlorophyll tablets, less meat & more fruits & vegetables has not made any difference.

In brief: Oils

The oils we eat are exuded through the pores.
Did you ever notice a garlicky smell after a meal with garlic? You can try to look at the oily foods you eat to see if adjusting them helps. However, anti-antiperspirant with Aluminum Chloride seems to be the most effective anti-antiperspirant which helps reduce body odor. Finally, daily soap and water of the areas with apocrine glands is essential
