We are all annoyed from mosquitoes ruining our summer days on the beach and other places.
Since 1956, there are mosquito repellent on the market, though there are a lot of individuals for whom this is a very big problem. The unpleasant effects of DEET in sprays should not be ignored, same as the smell of the chemicals which is still there after using it. If you have a problem with this, vitamin B1 is the best thing for you.
Vitamin B1 is a necessary mineral for the organism which is very essential vitamin for immunity boost and fight stress. You can find this vitamin in various foods such as brown rice, oatmeal, liver, yeast, eggs, asparagus and kale.
There is no problem if you take too much of it, since it gets eliminated through urination.
Taking vitamin B1, it changes your smell and makes it not attractive and yeasty for mosquitoes, so it keeps them away, but in the meanwhile, it doesn’t affect the way you smell to people. Amazing, right?
There is still no right conclusion from this research, but it is worth to try it, natural and with no side effects. A lot of people have tried this, and they are amazed by the results. A medical entomologist named Dr Cameron Webb, is strongly convinced that taking this vitamin won’t do much on keeping mosquitoes away.
This vitamin is also very beneficial for those people who face problems with anorexic disorder, chronic alcoholism, gastric bypass, Crohn’s disease, because when in these conditions, the level of vitamin B decreases in the organism.
