Summer is a season of joy for many people. The long days, sandy beaches with sunny skies are all things of joy and beauty – at least for some people. And for others, they wage a never ending war with mosquitoes.
We know for a fact that a mosquito spray has been on the market ever since 1956, however some people just don’t like the remains of a burnt chemical on their skin and the smell itself, so that is why they avoid using the chemical repellants and are constantly searching for an all-natural remedy.
Today’s article is about showing you an all-natural way to literally make mosquitoes run away from you. It is simple, easy and it just requires the consumption of the vitamin B1.
The B1 vitamin is an essential vitamin that our body needs in order to boost resistance and fight stress. It can be consumed through foods such as kale, eggs, brown rice, yeast, liver, oatmeal and others.
But how does it work?
Believe it or not, vitamin B1 is capable of changing the scent that the mosquitoes pick up for you, making you smell “bad” for the little pests, while you or any other human can’t notice any difference. Vitamin B1 is known to make you smell like yeast to the little pests, therefore causing them to avoid you.
Many studies have also found that even excess consumption of this vitamin has no negative effects as the body just flushes the excess vitamin out of your body.
However it is worth noting that conditions such as chronic alcohol addiction, anorexia, stomach bypass should take additional B1 supplements as the conditions themselves can cause a decrease in the body’s natural vitamin B1 levels.
If you’re interested in giving this new natural method a try, take 100mg of thiamin every day for 2 weeks. You will start to notice a decrease in the amount of mosquito bites on your body.
And if for some reason thiamine doesn’t work for you, you can always try this natural mosquito repellent that we are going to show you how to prepare.
