Mosquito Body Guard works by triggering our skin’s immune system to create our own layer of protection.
Rothamsted Research Centre is one of the oldest agricultural research institutions in the world. In their work to develop insecticides for crops they developed insect repellent perfumes which disrupt the highly sensitive antennae of insects. This creates locational disorientation and “blindness” while these insects are in the presence of the vapors that carry the biochemicals.
In 2005, a group of scientists at Rothamsted verified that humans and most animals can produce similar protection vapors naturally from within the body’s immune system. These biochemicals, released as vapors from the skin, are able to cloak us from mosquitoes and other blood biting bugs.
Further work was done on this by Dr. James G. Logan and his team to create topical applications for humans. They published their research article in the Malaria Journal which shows how they tested topical applications that would cloak humans from blood biting bugs. However, in their findings the topical applications were too volatile, dissipating in a short period of time, making them non-viable for commercialization.
Our breakthrough came by looking at the challenge of delivery. While Logan’s research was limited to topical applications we asked a different question. What if we focused on the inside of the human body? What if we could jump start the body’s ability to create enough of these biochemicals so that the body could protect itself without the application of synthetic and harmful chemicals?
Mosquito Body Guard does just that. We use concentrated mineral water to deliver the dynamically formulated bio-minerals that activate our body’s immune system. Once activated, our immune system then produces biochemical vapors at the skin level, stopping mosquitoes and blood biting bugs from sensing us.
If they don’t land, they can’t bite! However, the occasional mosquito may land on the skin for a few seconds while they search for the chemical marker that indicates that blood is present. When they can’t “see” the chemical marker they fly away!
