We all love the summer period. Going to the beach, plenty of sun, beach and the inevitable insects, especially mosquitoes.
Some people don’t pay attention to them, because the market offers a wide variety of repellents since 1956.
Still, if you can’t stand using them and their smell, a thing that can save you is using Vitamin B1.
Another name for this vitamin is thiamine and it is very important for our body. We can mostly find it in oatmeal, yeast, asparagus, liver, brown rice, eggs and kale. It can increase your immunity and fight stress.
This is a vitamin soluble in water, when your body doesn’t use some of it, it is eliminated through the urine. You can’t overdose on it.
It’s interesting that this vitamin can change how you smell to mosquitoes and insects. If you have it enough inside you, your smell will be “yeasty” and they won’t even try to bite you.
You’ll smell the same to humans, so don’t worry about it.
There are still researches to be done, but if it doesn’t cause any side-effects, why won’t you try it?
Some conditions can decrease the level of thiamine in your body like: anorexia, chronic alcoholism, gastric bypass and Crohn’s disease. People who have these conditions should take more of it.
Start with 100 mg of thiamin every day. You’ll be able to notice a great difference in only 2 weeks! All of those pesky creatures will be gone and won’t even try to come near you!
