    Default B vitamin to protect against bug bites?

    Last time we were at Couples, I'd read about a certain B vitamin that helped protect against bug bites. We used it and had no problems. Can't remember which B vitamin it was. Can anyone help?

    Default Vitamin B

    Thiamine (vitamin B1) can be used as a systemic insect repellent (the skin has a characteristic smell)
    I think it helps me but the evidence hasn't proved it yet.

    I've tried it before and I didn't have much luck. I've read about people having great success with it. Maybe it only works for some folks which must be nice. Tired of using the bug spray.
