Scientific Evaluation of Sweat Detox:

There is increasing evidence in recent scientific literature about potential adverse health sequelae associated with naturally occurring toxic element bioaccumulation. With increasing media reports of widespread exposure to metals and metalloids emanating from contamination of everyday products including lead in children’s toys, (Weidenhamer 2009) arsenic in rice, (Liang et al. 2010) aluminum in deodorants (Michalke et al. 2009) and cookware, (Raj-wanshi et al. 1997) cadmium in cigarette smoke (Lin et al.2010) and automobile exhaust, (Ewen et al. 2009) as well as mercury in dental amalgam (Michalke et al. 2009) and most fish, (Counter and Buchanan 2004) the accrual of potentially toxic elements in humans has become an issue of intense study and public health attention.

An individual may take numerous measures to minimize exposures and to optimize metabolism and excretion of toxic elements in the stool and urine with diet, supplements, and chelation therapy; however, an often overlooked route of excretion of toxicants is via the process of sweating.

A research done by a group of scientist from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada; Luleå University of Technology, Luleå, Sweden; and Department of Laboratory Medicine, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada has found that many toxic elements appeared to be preferentially excreted through sweat. The researchers found that such toxic elements as cadmium, lead, and aluminum, excretion in sweat far exceeds that in urine, as traces of these elements were found in sweat of all the people that participated in the research.

At least two different scientific researches came to a conclusion that sweating may assist with the removal of toxic elements from the body. Specifically the researchers concluded that:

  • From a therapeutic standpoint, induced sweating may have potential as a clinical intervention for elimination of some toxic elements. (See reference in Footnote 1 and 3)

  • Sweating offers potential and deserves consideration, to assist with removal of toxic elements from the body. (See reference in Footnote 2)

  • The scientific reasoning for sweat being able to help with toxin removal is supported by articles in the media. For example:

  • NY Times: The body does appear to sweat out toxic materials — heavy metals and bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical found in plastics, for instance, have been detected in sweat. But there’s no evidence that sweating out such toxins improves health. /…/ The concentration of metals detected in sweat are extremely low. Sweat is 99 percent water. The liver and kidneys remove far more toxins than sweat glands.

  • Immunity Therapy Center: Work up a sweat. Regular exercise is beneficial to your overall health and it also helps you to sweat out toxins. Exercising in addition to eating healthfully helps to boost your immune system, keeping your body in top shape to naturally ward off toxins through the liver and kidneys.

It is generally recognizable that the body does release at least some of the toxins through sweating.

Scientific reference that discusses the presence of toxins in the human body and their potential health effects:

Title: "Human biomonitoring: state of the art"
Authors: Joachim D. Pleil and Robert L. Metcalf
Journal: Journal of Environmental Monitoring
Year: 1997
Volume: 1
Issue: 1
Pages: 17-22
DOI: 10.1039/A605614A
This article provides an overview of human biomonitoring techniques used to assess exposure to environmental toxins and pollutants. It discusses the presence of various toxins in the human body and their measurement using biomarkers and analytical methods. While this particular reference is from 1997, it lays the groundwork for understanding the presence and measurement of toxins in the human body, and subsequent research in this field has further elucidated these concepts.

This website and other websites affiliated to this website contains various information and statements regarding the substances and ingredients that are used in the Nuubu patches. Though the products offered on this website is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose any disease or condition, and we do not intend to provide any health advice to anyone, however we would like to inform you that all statements on this website that relates to the properties of the substances that are used in the transdermal patches have been thoroughly assessed and substantiated by the following information resources:

(1) The fruits, leaves and seeds of E. japonica (Loquat Leaf) have great nutritional value and medicinal properties due to the presence of polyphenols, flavonoids glycosides, amygdalin, vitamin, carotene, pectin, enzymes, organic acids etc. The extracts from them can exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive, antiviral, and even anticancer actions (F.-L. Song, R.-Y. Gan, Y. Zhang, Q. Xiao, L. Kuang, and H.-B. Li, “Total Phenolic Contents and Antioxidant Capacities of Selected Chinese Medicinal Plants,” Int. J. Mol. Sci, vol. 11, pp. 2362– 2372, 2010, doi: 10.3390/ijms11062362; B. Rao and R. C. Tang, “Green synthesis of silver nanoparticles with antibacterial activities using aqueous Eriobotrya japonica leaf extract,” Advances in Natural Sciences: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, vol. 8, no. 1, Mar. 2017, doi: 10.1088/2043-6254/aa5983.)

(2) Vitamin C-containing topical solutions have been shown to prevent the reduction of CD1A- expressing Langerhans cells upon UV radiation, thus protecting the skin against immunosuppression (M. S. Matsui et al., “Non-Sunscreen Photoprotection: Antioxidants Add Value to a Sunscreen,” J. Investig. Dermatology Symp. Proc., vol. 14, no. 1, pp. 56–59, Aug. 2009, doi: 10.1038/JIDSYMP.2009.14)

(3) In clinical studies, vitamin C containing solutions have been shown to reduce UV-induced thymine dimers, thereby potentially reducing the risk of skin cancer (J. C. Murray, J. A. Burch, R. D. Streilein, M. A. Iannacchione, R. P. Hall, and S. R. Pinnell, “A topical antioxidant solution containing vitamins C and E stabilized by ferulic acid provides protection for human skin against damage caused by ultraviolet irradiation,” J. Am. Acad. Dermatol., vol. 59, no. 3, pp. 418–425, Sep. 2008, doi: 10.1016/J.JAAD.2008.05.004)

(4) Vitamin C is one of the most potent antioxidants in the skin. It neutralizes the oxidative stress by a process of electron transfer and/or donation (F. Al-Niaimi and N. Y. Zhen Chiang, “Topical Vitamin C and the skin: Mechanisms of action and Clinical applications,” Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, vol. 10, no. 7. Matrix Medical Communications, pp. 14–17, Jul. 01, 2017, Accessed: Jul. 18, 2022. [Online]. Available: /pmc/articles/PMC5605218/)

(5) Vitamin C has a potential anti‐inflammatory activity and can be used in conditions like acne vulgaris and rosacea. It can promote wound healing and prevent post‐inflammatory hyperpigmentation (P. S. Telang, “Vitamin C in dermatology,” Indian Dermatol. Online J., vol. 4, no. 2, p. 143, 2013, doi: 10.4103/2229-5178.110593; S. S. Traikovich, “Use of Topical Ascorbic Acid and Its Effects on Photodamaged Skin Topography,” Arch. Otolaryngol. Neck Surg., vol. 125, no. 10, pp. 1091–1098, Oct. 1999, doi: 10.1001/ARCHOTOL.125.10.1091)

(6) Houttuynia Cordata Tunb demonstrates good anti-inflammatory effects. It can be applied topically, and studies show that it in combination with other medical herbs it successfully reduces skin inflammation (Lim YM, An SJ, Kim HK, et al. Preparation of hydrogels for atopic dermatitis containing natural herbal extracts by gamma-ray irradiation. Radiation Physics and Chemistry. 2009;78(7-8):441-444. Doi:10.1016/J.RADPHYSCHEM.2009.03.074)

(7) Bamboo vinegar can act as natural insecticide, fungicide, bactericide, a deodorant for treating malodor from pest, soil disinfectact, compost ferment agent, microorganism activator and also as a folk medicine. (C.-L. Ho et al., ‘Bamboo Vinegar Decreases Inflammatory Mediator Expression and NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation by Inhibiting Reactive Oxygen Species Generation and Protein Kinase C-α/δ Activation’, PLoS ONE, vol. 8, no. 10, p. e75738, Oct. 2013, doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0075738.)

(8) Tourmaline is natural borosilicate polar mineral with a complex structure. The general chemical formula of tourmaline can be expressed as XY3Z6(T6O18)(BO3)3V3W, where the X site is usually occupied by Na+, K+, Ca2+ or a vacancy; the Y site is usually occupied by Li+, Fe2+, Fe3+, Al3+, Mg2+, Cr3+, V3+; the Z site is usually occupied by V3+, Fe3+, Cr3+, Al3+, Mg2+; the T site is occupied by Si4+, Al3+ or B3+; the B site represents B3+, and the V and W sites are occupied by OH− , O2− and OH− , O2− , F−.
