Mosquitoes are getting on the rise as the rainy season is fast approaching. That means higher risks of deadly diseases from their stingy bites like dengue, malaria, or worse, zika.
Apparently, the best way to avoid these diseases is to avoid being bitten.
We usually apply repellant on our skin or mosquito coils to drive them away. But an alternative to such practices might be better and more effective.
Vitamin B1 or Thiamine is a natural insect repellant as it could alter the odor of our sweat that many insects respond negatively.
Instead of being attracted to you to suck your blood, they will turn away to the opposite direction.
You can take 25-50 mg of Thiamine through pills, three times per day.
You can also try to eat thiamine-rich foods like broccoli, cabbage, beans, sunflower seeds, and cauliflower.
It has no bad effects on your health so there’s no regret of adding this one to your diet!
