Summer is the favorite season for many people, but the problem of mosquitoes can make it awful.
Some people don’t consider it to be a problem, as mosquito repellents are available. But some people don’t like to use them because of the smell and the adverse effects of DEET in sprays.
Moreover, mosquitoes really prefer to bite some people over others and if you are one of them, taking Vitamin B1 could be of big help in repelling mosquitoes.
As per many medical experts, taking Vitamin B1 can make you unappealing for the mosquitoes. This is because of the fact that enough of Vitamin B1 in our system will result in the production of a “yeasty” smell to mosquitoes, making you unpleasant for them and they stay away from you.
But you need not worry about that smell, as it cannot be detected by human beings.
Although this fact is not scientifically proven yet, consumption of vitamin B1 has no side effect, and it is also important for keeping a body operating properly. However, many people have tried this and found the effects are positive.
Vitamin B1, also called thiamine, is a B-complex vitamin and is available in many foods including spinach, onions, broccoli, sunflower seeds, kale, eggplant, summer squash, and green beans.
You can take 100mg of vitamin B1 on a daily basis. Within two to three weeks you will notice that the mosquitoes love for you is vanished and they are staying away from you.
