Don’t Ruin Your Summer – Take This Vitamin Against Mosquito Bites
The most of us really like warm summer days.
Longer days, sunny skies, sandy beaches… and mosquito bites. Lots and lots of mosquitoes.
For some, this isn’t too big of a deal, as mosquito repellent has been on the market since 1956.
But all these chemical repellents have a really bad smell and not to mentioned the large number of harmful components they contain.
Instead of them use this anti-mosquito vitamin – Vitamin B1.
Vitamin B1 (also known as thiamine) is an essential vitamin your body needs.
It can be found in foods such as yeast, oatmeal, brown rice, asparagus, kale, liver and eggs and is important in fighting stress and boosting immunity.
As one of the water-soluble vitamins, any excess that your body doesn’t use gets flushed out when you urinate, so there’s no need to worry about taking too much.
What’s incredible about the relationship between Vitamin B1 and mosquitoes is it has the potential to change the way you smell to the little buggers.
That will keep you safe from mosquito bites.
Those with enough Vitamin B1 in their systems tend to smell “yeasty” to mosquitoes, making them unappealing to bite.
It doesn’t, however, change the way you smell to other humans, so don’t worry about smelling like old bread around your friends.
The research on this is still inconclusive, but since taking extra thiamin every day has no adverse effects, it might be worth a try.
I’ve personally tried this remedy myself with amazing results and have seen the same results in others that I have suggested this too.
Certain conditions can lower thiamine in the body such as chronic alcoholism, Crohn’s disease, anorexia and gastric bypass, so individuals with these conditions may benefit health-wise from taking an extra supplement.
Interested in giving it a shot? Take 100 mg of thiamin every day.
Within two weeks, you should start noticing a decrease in a number of times you’re uncomfortably smacking these pests away from your body.
If taking thiamine doesn’t work for you, try this all natural mosquito repellent recipe to help you avoid having to use chemical warfare on your body as a repellent.
