Just take this vitamin and you will be mosquito free all summer long!
- You surely often use mosquito repellents and they seem to prevent the itchy bites from these insects. Apparently, they are full of toxic chemicals which cause harmful side-effects if ingested or absorbed into the skin
- Researchers have yet to pinpoint what exactly a mosquito looks for when searching for humans to bite, certain odors are thought to be a main culprit. People with high concentrations of steroids or cholesterol on their skin surface attract more mosquitoes, as well as those who produce excess amounts of certain acids, such as uric acid. All of these substances can trigger a mosquito’s sense of smell.
- People who give off larger amounts of carbon dioxide, such as those who are overweight or pregnant, are mosquito magnets. People would give off more carbon dioxide if they’re outside playing kickball than they would if they were sitting by a fire.
Mosquitoes can carry diseases and spread them to humans such as:
Zika – linked to birth defectsdengue – can lead to hemorrhagic feverwest nile – causes fever, joint pain, vomiting and rashesmalaria – causes fever, chills and vomitingyellow fever – can cause jaundice, chills and vomitingchikungunya – can cause joint pain, rashes and nauseala crosse encephalitis – can cause fever and nausearift valley fever – can cause dizziness, weakness and eye damagejamestown canyon virus – can cause flu-like symptomssnowshoe hare virus – can cause dizziness, vomiting and rashes
There are more than 175 known species of mosquitoes in the united states, so it’s very important to learn how to protect yourself.
Vitamin b1 repels mosquitoes
Vitamin b1 (thiamine) is a water-soluble vitamin that your body needs to function properly and stay healthy. It can be found in foods such as broccoli, onions, green beans, summer squash, kale, spinach, cabbage, eggplant and sunflower seeds.
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 it! but when mosquitoes get a whiff, they’ll make their way to another target.
