We all love summer. The days are longer days, there are sunny skies, a lot of sandy beaches… and unfortunately a lot of mosquitoes. However, for some, this isn’t a big of a deal. But don’t worry we found the perfect solution for you. Namely, the vitamin B1 (also known as thiamine) is an essential vitamin your body needs. It can be found in foods like: yeast, oatmeal, brown rice, asparagus, kale, liver and eggs and is important in fighting stress and boosting immunity too.
There’s no need to worry about taking too much as one of the water-soluble vitamins, any excess that your body doesn’t use gets flushed out when you urinate. Moreover, that’s amazing thing about the relationship between Vitamin B1 and mosquitoes is that it has the potential to change the way you smell to the little buggers. Some people who have enough Vitamin B1 in their systems smell “yeasty” to mosquitoes, and this makes 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.Moreover, there are a lot of things that can lower thiamine in the entire body such as: anorexia and gastric bypass, chronic alcoholism and Crohn’s disease.So all individuals with these conditions may benefit health-wise from taking an extra supplement.
So, are you interested in giving it a shot? You need to take 100 mg of thiamin every day. In only two weeks, you should start noticing a huge difference and decrease in the amount of times you’re uncomfortably smacking these pests away from your entire body. However, if taking thiamine isn’t good enough for you, then you should definitely try this incredible mosquito repellent recipe to help you avoid having to use chemical warfare on your body as a repellent.
