I really think that all people around the world love the hot summer days, especially the ones who live near the seaside! But, unfortunately, we all hate mosquitoes, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is a fact.
Note: the real and ugly truth is that we can’t change the fact that these 2 things tag along! As we said, the mosquitoes can be a huge nuisance and they can make our lives really difficult sometimes, and using chemical products to keep them away is not on the top of everyone’s wish list.
Can I ask you a simple question – did you know that the mosquito repellent has been on the market since 1956? Well yes, but as we said, not many people like these mosquito repelling products, because they don’t like the smell and they are also scared of the adverse effects of DEET in sprays and are more prone to getting bit by these boring bugs.
So, if you are one of these people and you don’t like the commercial mosquito repelling products, then you should definitely try this simple, but effective trick! And you will be shocked when you find out that this trick is very simple and easy to use – you just have to take Vitamin B1.
Can I ask you another question – do you know what’s thiamine? Here’s what you need to know – well, thiamine or Vitamin B1 is a water-soluble vitamin that your body needs to function properly and stay healthy. The Vitamin B1 or Thiamine can be found in many different foods, such as: broccoli, onions, green beans, summer squash, kale, spinach, cabbage, eggplant and sunflower seeds, and it plays an important role in fighting stress and boosting the immune system.
You should also know that the medical experts say that if you have enough Vitamin B1 in your system, you’ll produce a “yeasty” smell to mosquitoes, making you unappealing for them. Don’t worry – people won’t be able to smell this! But when mosquitoes get a whiff, they’ll happily make their way to another target, and leave your skin bite-free.
Note: these theories haven’t yet been supported scientifically, not yet. The good thing is that taking Vitamin B supplements has no unwanted side-effects so it can’t harm if you try it. People who’ve tried this approach say that it’s quite effective, much more effective than the commercially sold insect repellents. You should know that certain health 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.
Vitamin B1 – how to use it: well, it’s very simple. If you want to try this simple trick, you should take 100 mg of thiamin every day. And in just two weeks, you should start noticing a decrease in the amount of times you’re uncomfortably smacking these pests away from your body. But, if this trick doesn’t work for you, then you should try this all natural mosquito repellent recipe to help you avoid having to use chemical warfare on your body as a repellent.
