- Vitamin B1
Studies have shown that Vitamin B1 metabolizes in the body to reduce human odors attractive to insects. Vitamin B1 is the key ingredient in "Don't Bite Me! Patch" and when topically applied lasts for up to 36 hours! The thiamine (Vitamin B1) based formula is absorbed into the bloodstream through their "Don't Bite Me Patch" topical patch. Excess B1 is then secreted through the body's pores, making an odor that is almost undetectable to humans, but that mosquitoes don't like. This "odor" forms a protective barrier around the body that shields the user from insects. Vitamin B1 properties are also good for the nervous system, digestion, muscles, heart and alcohol-damaged nerve tissues. The recommended daily amount of Vitamin B1 is 1.4 mg a day. There are no poisoning dangers with Vitamin B1 as the vitamin dissolves in water and is excreted in urine and sweat. Proper use of the "Don't Bite Me! Patch" entails applying to a dry, hairless area of the body up to two hours prior to exposure to biting insects. Additional patches may be needed if you weigh over 200 lbs, are traveling to heavily infested areas, smoke tobacco products or drink alcoholic beverages.
Aloe is the secondary ingredient in "Don't Bite Me! Patch". the uses for Aloe Vera have been revered for a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic purposes for thousands of years. Aloe Vera contains anti-inflammatory properties which may explain why it has been reported to alleviate pain and swelling associate with itches and burns.
