How Much Sweat Do We Produce

Typically sweating occurs all the time, at least to some degree, even if you are not moving and the temperature seems comfortable. For instance, if you are sitting in your living room, the sweating process is still lightly stimulated by the brain to rid excessive heat. At this low level, sweating might only yield two cups in an entire day (500 ml) Therefore, as that produced sweat moves slowly through the tubes, practically all of the sodium and chloride are brought back into our body along with some water. This results in only tiny amounts of water reaching our skin. In fact, you probably do not even realize that you are sweating, but you are. Oppositely, in a warmer environment and/or during exercise, when sweating is more strongly stimulated, it becomes very noticeable.
