MUST READ: Take This Vitamin Everyday and Get Rid of Mosquito Bites

Aside from the pain and itch of mosquito bites, there are diseases that may come along with their sting such as dengue, malaria and the more recent, zika virus.

To prevent such diseases, we should take action in avoiding getting bitten. Usually, we apply different forms of repellant from lotion to various type of airsprays.

However, there is a natural way to repel mosquitoes from biting you as chemical method may induce side effects.

As an alternative, you can try to take Vitamin B1.

Vitamin B1, otherwise known as thiamine, is a natural insect repellant. No one knows yet exactly how it functions. Scientists have just established that thiamine changes the smell of your sweat, and insects definitely respond to various body odors differently.

Mosquitos can apparently sniff you out from 30 yards away but if you're taking vitamin B1, they'll turn around and go in the opposite direction.

The recommended dosage of thiamine is 25 to 50 mg, three times per day. You can get pills or simply be sure to eat vitamin B1-rich foods such as beans, cabbage, sunflower seeds, cauliflower, and broccoli.
