Plenty Of Preppers Are Putting Back Food During Good Times But Not Enough Vitamins

Inexpensive survival foods are often lacking a nutritional profile that allows for good health over a time period. Beans, rice, and flour are great but living on them without anything else is asking for some trouble down the road.

On the other hand, no matter how well you plan out your preps to create a balanced diet for you and your family, some extra vitamins can help boost immune system responses.

Survivaguard is a new vitamin on the market specifically formulated to help you sustain energy levels and stay healthy during survival situations. It seems to be a good quality vitamin for adults that offers more than just the basic vitamin profile that a lot of basic vitamins have.

I like that it includes Omega-3 fatty acids and plenty of antioxidants. If I could suggest one additional ingredient it would be to add probiotics to the blend for digestive support.

Made in the USA in a GMP Certified Facility

Formulated in Consultation with Scott W. Tunis MD FACS, a  Multi-Patent Holding Physician and Surgeon, a Nationally Recognized and Actively Practicing Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a Marathon Runner, a Supporter of the NRA, and an Avid and Prudent Preparer.

Contains Herbal Supplements

While this is designed to be a complete multi vitamin for adults, it also includes a blend of herbs called “the Survivaguard Formula” and “Nutri Prep” Blend.  Lets explore what the ingredients in the Nutriprep Blend are supposed to offer you.

Huperzine

Enhances alertness and mental clarity while offering protection from compounds in the environment that can damage nerves.

Phosphatidylserine

Helps you to concentrate and focus under stressful circumstances and can help balance out mood by relieving anxiety and depression.

Gamma Amino Butyric Acid

Improves focus and helps encourage better rest and recovery time.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Enhances immune system and takes on oxidative stress. Helps protect heart and brain cells.

Other Ingredients Of Note

  • Fish Oil
    • Provides valuable Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract
    • Helps sustain energy levels and offers antioxidant protection.
  • Trans Reversatrol
    • This is a powerful antioxidant most commonly found in red grapes and wine.  Some claim that it has a remarkable anticarcinogenic effect. This is one of the ingredients in red wine that led many doctors to recommend the occasional glass.

Available in 3 Container Sizes

1. 7 day Expedition Supply

Offers a prepackaged option for a week-long excursion. This is ideal for those that want to hit the open road or that are flying and want a sealed bottle to travel with. This is a unique approach that I think you will see other vitamin companies doing in the future.

If you want to try out SurvivaGuard before committing to a larger bottle, this is a good way for you or you and your significant other to try them out for a few days and see how well you tolerate taking this blend.

2. 30 Day Supply

This is the most popular size and a good way to try out Survivaguard for a month before putting back a lot for hard times. For two people, this would provide a 2 week trial period. All the bottles have a shelf life of 3 years for guaranteed potency.

3. 180 day Supply

The 360 capsules in a sealed #10 can are guaranteed potent for up to 10 years. These cans are easy to store and make it simple to calculate how many vitamins you have on hand and rotate them out over the years. 4 cans are enough for a couple to take a standard dose for a year.

Side Note About Cotton In Bottle

Survivaguard puts a lot of cotton in their vitamin bottles to keep capsules from rattling around and getting damaged. This means that you have some extra cotton to use when traveling.

If you are out on the woods or bugging out, cotton wadding can be used for fire tinder, first aid, or cleaning. Consider the big wad of cotton they choose to use a bonus for your survival kit.

Total Cost For A Year’s Supply

The cost comes out to $200 per year per adult if you buy the tins and $180 per year if you buy the 60 pill bottles.

Cost Compared To Rainbow Light

Comparing this cost to my typical Rainbow Light Vitamins are considerably less and have more information and testing available. Also being a woman of childbearing age, I need a different vitamin for regular use. My typical vitamin does not have the shelf life that Survivaguard has when bought in a sealed #10 can.

Potential Allergens & Special Diets

Survivaguard Vitamins contain anchovies ( the source of the fish oil), Tree Nuts (Gingko Nut), and Soy. These vitamins are thus not vegan or even vegetarian technically.

Not for pregnant women or nursing mothers

Survivaguard also states that these vitamins are not to be taken by pregnant or nursing women.

If you are or have women of childbearing age in your household, you should make sure to put back some different vitamins in case of someone experiences pregnancy during a long emergency or survival situation.

Check with doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned about interactions with your current medications.

If you are taking prescription drugs or have health concerns, make sure to ask your pharmacist or doctor before starting a new vitamin, especially one that has other ingredients beyond just basic vitamins.

I am a big fan of vitamins that offer some homeopathic ingredients but I know that some herbs and plants may cause interactions with some medications so it is best to double check if you have doubts about any ingredient.

Start your vitamin stockpile today!

A stash of vitamins can be put back over time. Remember to check dates and rotate out your oldest vitamins first to assure your supply is kept at top potency.

Sure, you can take vitamins past the expiration but there is no guarantee how much of the nutritional benefits are going to be left. The further past their best by date, the less benefit is left.

In a survival situation, anything you can do to keep you and your family healthy is worth a lot. Extra vitamins are also an excellent barter item during hard times and even a large stash of them doesn’t take up that much space.

    1. growing, or even buying in normal times, sufficient food of a variety that fully satisfies nutritional intake is a monumental task.

      having readily available, long life, full range vitamins that are specially formulated to enhance the senses in a survival situation seems to be a unique and viable solution to watching your loved ones slowly waste away from rickets, beriberi and other diseases that we don’t see in good times. read “rescue at los banos” by bruce henderson for a riveting and eyeopening look at the ultimate family survival situation. vitamin deficiency played a huge role in the civilian prisoners’ unfolding disaster.

      survivaguard may be more expensive than off the shelf multivitamins from your favorite big box store, but as a percentage of what is usually spent on other long term preps, it is a small price still.

  1. First skill would be gardening. Had chickens growing up so not so worried there.

    You didn’t mention the pill size of the vitamin. Some people have difficulty swallowing large pills. Especially elderly, so if I’m putting them back for awhile that would be an important issue to me. I guess a trial run would let one know. 🙂

  2. The first skill to master as a novice homesteader might be not being afraid to ask for help. Start small and focused with possibly a garden. Then move to animals, again start small with chickens. Then with each season increase the size of the garden plot and grow a larger variety of produce. And increase the size of the chicken flock. With the increased egg production and surplus crops this could be a source of additional income.

  3. My gardening skills are not very good so I’d need to work on that in order to have food beyond just preps.

  4. as a student of history i see the ultimate family survival situation was faced by civilian prisoners of the japanese in ww2. while not wantonly brutalized and murdered as were military p.o.w., they were subject to very harsh living conditions. their most serious medical problems seemed to have resulted more from severe vitamin insufficiency with insufficient caloric intake coming second. survivaguard offers the first commercially solution available that i have seen.

  5. I have to agree with Debra. Growing food is the biggy for me too. I’ve been growing herbs but I have a few disabilities that prevent me from doing any serious growing by myself. But if we are in a SHTF situation I’ll probably have other family members show up since I’m more prepared than any of them. My motto will become “If you expect to eat expect to work”. Yeah, I’m ruthless!

  6. We have been searching and comparing Vitamins for long term preps. This product is something we would like to research and try. You always have helpful posts. Love your topics!

    1. The developer and manufacturer of SurvivaGuard makes no claims whatsoever for homeopathic properties of the formula (i.e. alternative medical healing of diseases.) Nonetheless, there is near incontrovertible scientific evidence that certain antioxidants and micronutrients have beneficial effects to overall well-being, hence their inclusion.

    2. Seriously…! With all the proof that homeopathic remedies work ! I bet you think the government will help you too.

  7. The first skills we DID try to master as new homesteaders was set up a garden spot and learn about the well and septic tank. We have added manual access to the well for power outages.

  8. Better gardening skills as well as raising chickens and rabbits to start. Also a question. Is BackDoorSurvival going to start up the book giveaway, and notifying readers of free ebook downloads in the near future?

  9. I’d like how to master skills in keeping what I have safe. I don’t have a great deal of space in an apartment and can’t grow my own but can store some. I’m getting better at rotating the old and thinking of new ways to preserve my foods.

  10. I keep a 365 day supply in a bottle. I make sure that I have at least one full bottle on hand. It would be smart to add a small supply to at BOB as well.

  11. Well THAT was tricky…ask a question not necessarily related to the current topic…I think the easiest thing for a novice prepper to focus on is building up a food pantry. It can be done easily, even on a limited budget. My two biggest pieces of advice: Don’t get sucked into the hype, find reputable, reliable resources to help you on the journey (like BDS). The ‘biggest and bestest’ aren’t always. Save your money, and see tip 2. Two, focus on what you know already, what is reasonable for you. Skills can be easily learned locally and online. Skills can never be taken away from you. Focus on learning.
