Summer is the most favorite season of almost everyone. Imagine all of those beautiful sandy beaches, long days and tasty fruits. But, not everything sounds that great as the previous sentence. This is the period of all the pesky parasites, especially the annoying mosquitoes.
People usually use mosquito repellents so that they can solve this problem, but they just don’t think that these sprays are full of various chemicals that can have numerous different side-effects on their health.
The smell of these harmful chemicals remains even after using the repellent, so you’re just constantly inhaling it. We here to suggest you to use a natural solution!
One of the most essential vitamins for our body is the thiamine or Vitamin B1. It will help you boost your immunity and fight stress. You can find it in various foods, like for example: kale, eggs, oatmeal, yeast, asparagus and brown rice.
Don’t worry about taking too much vitamin B1. Any excess of it will be eliminated through urination, like in any other water-soluble vitamin.
This vitamin can be especially helpful in cases of mosquitoes. If you intake it properly and regularly, it will change your smell and make you unappealing for them. Your smell will be like “yeasty” to them and they hate that smell.
Still, there should be more studies, but make sure you try it, because it won’t cause any side effects.
There are numerous people who have tried it and they all claim that it’s very effective. D-r Cameron Webb is one of the most famous medical entomologists and claims that taking vitamin B will effectively repel mosquitoes from you.
People with Crohn’s disease, chronic alcoholism,anorexia and gastric bypass, are even recommended to take B1 supplements because their conditions lower vitamin B1 levels in the body.
The choice is yours: take B1 supplements or prepare your own mosquito repellent! If you decide to take supplements, make sure you take 100mg of thiamine a day.
