Long days on sandy beaches with bright skies in the summer are joy for many people. But for some of them it is a never ending fight with mosquitoes.
Ever since 1956 in the markets we can buy a mosquito spray, still some people just don’t like the leftovers of a burnt chemical on their skin and the also the smell of itself. This is why they are avoiding using the chemical repellants and they are continually searching for an all-natural remedy.
Today’s piece is about showing you an all and whole natural way to exactly make mosquitoes run away from you. It is easy and simple and it just involves the ingesting of the vitamin B1.
The B1 vitamin is a vital vitamin that our body needs in demand to fight stress and boost resistance. It can be used up through foods such as eggs, kale, yeast, brown rice, oatmeal, liver and others.
How does it work?
Vitamin B1 is capable of changing the scent that the mosquitoes pick up for you. They are making you smell very “bad” for the nasty pests, while you or any other human can’t notice any change. Vitamin B1 makes you smell like yeast for the little pests, consequently causing them to avoid you.
There are many studies that have also found that even extra consumption of this vitamin has no negative effects as the body. The body just flushes the extra vitamin out of your body.
In conditions such as anorexia, chronic alcohol addiction and stomach bypass you should take additional B1 supplements; as the circumstances themselves can cause a reduction in the body’s natural vitamin B1 levels.
If you’re attracted in giving this new method a try, you should take 100mg of thiamin every day for about 2 weeks. You will by then start to notice a drop in the amount of mosquito bites on your body.
Maybe for some unknown reason thiamine won’t work for you; then you can always try this natural mosquito repellent. This is the way you should prepare it.
