Getting Bit??

Now that the weather is getting nice out, we are staying outside later and that usually means mosquito bites for LOTS of people.   One of my hero’s – Dr. Royal Lee said back in 1950 that there were tests that indicated mosquitos refused to bite people who were well supplied with vitamin B1 – indicating that mosquito bites could possibly come down to malnutrition.

Right now you’re saying “sign me up for some B1!!”   RIGHT!! So I’m going to give you some food choices that will give you high doses of B1 as well as some other things the body uses this vitamin for.  Keep in mind, all B vitamins are water soluble, therefore, you have to drink the appropriate amount of water to fully utilize them!
