Re: Which vitamins and supplements would you stockpile for when the SHTF with limited funds?
If you're serious about preparing with limited funds, I'd read my postings here:
Thread: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF

There's over 800 tips there, intentially broken down into bite sized chunks to help people digest many of the most important principles for preparedness especially on a budget.

Yes, get some good stress vitamins. Those dosages are higher since under stress you might need a lot more (within reason since high vitamin A is bad for you).

Many vitamins only offer a portion of what you need. The reason is simple: you're getting many vitamins in what you eat on a daily basis.

Few of us are missing essential vitamins since many foods are fortified. The reason they did that was a lot of people weren't getting adequate nutrition based upon the food quality of what they were eating. For example neural tube defects are caused by eating inadequate levels of folic acid while the mother is pregnant. Since many women don't know when they're pregnant until some time afterward, it was added.

If anyone in your family is of child bearing years, then have maternity vitamins or similar is a good idea. Likewise your children should have special vitamins for their needs.

What would be BEST would be to take the time to learn which plants to consume in order to get those vitamins. In that topic I discuss the best plants to support women through pregnancy (since some plants wouldn't be as beneficial). Calcium is a big troubling one since you won't be able. to source milk in a collapse. Good points. Thankyou

Expect the same nutritional issues found during the time of the Great Depression: pellagra, rickets, scurvy, goiters (low iodine), etc. Iodine can be sourced from seafood, but that doesn't help most people who live far from the sea. You can create iodine from the green hulls of walnuts.

It's naturally added to salt in most cases. Salt will be like currency post-collapse. I discusses how people near the ocean could methodically create sea salt there too.

Many herbs can act like medications if you learn how to take them. It depends upon your specific needs. Over in that topic, I discussed the most common ailments, and how to prepare for their treatment: fever reducer, bleeding, dyssentery, diarhea, skin rashes, stomach ache, etc.

Prepping is not about using up lots of money. It can be, but that's not how our ancestors did it. They learned how to supplement from foraging. If you can learn, then you'll be better prepared. You'll eventually run out of things.

Many plants fix multiple issues, but the harvest time varies. Since others will be looking too, the areas where they grow will likely be overharvested. It's wisdom to learn multiple ways to fix common issues. Even as a nine year old, I knew ten basic plants. They commonly grow around your home. Things like common plantain, dandelion, honeysuckle, hibiscus, purslane, mullein, etc. You need duplication since that way you know multiple things to try to harvest and preserve.

If you buy them all, you'll be better prepared, but it would be expensive. If you learn them all, you'll be much better off, and most can be easily sourced.

What vitamins herbs or supplements would be the most important to add to your stockpile on a limited budget?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27768994


These are the things I am using and can recommend--

vitamin D3 (I take 2 a day unless I am out in the
sun. If you are inside, you need to supplement)
[link to www.iherb.com]

Source of Life liquid vitamins -(easy to swallow and is complete) There are others but I love this formula.
[link to www.vitaminshoppe.com]

I have been taking iodine/iodide since the Fukushima event. I use iodoral and can recommend it. I take 1 a day.
[link to www.pureformulas.com]

Oregano Oil (cured me of pnemonia-essential for infections)
[link to www.iherb.com]

Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) for food poisoning/parasites/purifying water
[link to www.iherb.com]

Magnesium Malate (malate for pain) (most/many are deficient in magnesium. Also cured my restless leg syndrome)
[link to www.iherb.com]

Dr. Bronner's liquid soap (for hair/body/clothes/pets)
[link to www.iherb.com]

I buy diatomaceous earth on ebay and use it daily (good for pets and plants too)
[link to www.ebay.com]
info on how to use-
[link to www.earthworkshealth.com]

There are many other things I have added to my pile of health preps including

pain reliever gel-
[link to www.iherb.com]

liquid clay for bites and tummy upsets-
[link to www.iherb.com]
[link to www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com]

For heart attack and gunshots and other injuries
and a myriad of reasons--Cayenne!
[link to www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com]

I buy Frontier 90,000 HU from iherb which carries all
the Frontier brand spices and herbs-
[link to www.iherb.com]

Think of the things you use every year consistently,
and add those to your first aid and also creature
comfort needs.

This does not complete my list but along with olive leaf extract and colloidal silver is the one I consider essential.

I live remotely so like using an online health food store
to add to my small stash of must have's for when the SHTF.
First time orders can get a discount of 5 bucks using code BES696.

Everyone gets free shipping with orders 20bucks or more.

cheers~ dasbier

ps. I do also consider apple cider vinegar and baking soda
essentials too :)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27768994


Vitamin C - first, and most important. In whatever cheap brand you like, or in Emergen-C if you have a few extra bucks. But, definitely a palatable chewable one for children if you have kids.

Vitamin D3 - in the little tiny 5,000 IU capsules. Can get Springmaid brand at Walmart for very cheap.


TURMERIC - 500 mg capsules. Can get 90 for $7 at Walmart (Springmaid brand). Turmeric kills everything - especially MRSA and all sorts of infections.

Sinus Buster Nasal Spray - a homeopathic capsaicin spray. Not cheap, but kills a cold in nothing flat!

Tea Tree Oil - cheap brand again at Walmart. Cures all sorts of skin ailments, nail fungus, heals cuts.

Hydrogen Peroxide - 3% from the drugstore. Good for everything.

Baking soda - good for everything.

Those things are the most important to me.

how many of you would want to take the old rancid supliments in you cupboards?

make your own with renewable weeds growing in your yard

rose hips, lambs quarters, horse tails, burdock, plantain, dockweed, the list goes on, you can juice grass, dry plants, grind egg shells etc. so many many things, clay

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29015106


I agree, and this spring/summer I juiced dandelion, plantain, and young perennial grasses. Everything is drinkable with a little stevia powder added.

Yes, egg shells for sure. Markus Rothkrantz sells a DvD on same subject.

Okay, I'm also cheating and have some blue green algae too. Makes a great sun tea.

so much people here are buying pharmaceuticals,wtf you sick fucks,havent you learned nothing on glp?

that shit is poison and things you cant get from normal natural forms you shouldnt fucking put in your body

you are the ones always fucking talking about big pharma,big gubermnt,fucking wars that you pay for with your fucking d3 pills...

if you cant make yourself to stand in the sun and if you cant process natural food,just end your suffering,you will do yourself a favor and probably to others too...

and yes,you can stockpile on vitamins,but do it in your body and not your basement and do it naturally

if you dont want to go natural then you might want to go check the prices for chemo and cancer treatment,because youre going to need it soon

I found where to get some kick butt
yerba mate which comes in a five pound
bag and is organic. You do not think
about it until you open it - 5 Pounds
is A LOT. I have been using my old
stainless steel percolator and only
a 1/4 cup of mate per 12 cups. Even
the kids like it with a little stevia.
Hot or cold..good stuff.

People aren't talking about vitamin C, the most important one of all!

Vitamin c!!!

Remember, hell on Earth means illness throughout, no doctors and no being able to get fruits and vegetables.

Without Vitamin C your screwed!

Vitamin C deficiency leads to scurvy.
The timeline for the development of scurvy varies, depending on vitamin C body stores, but signs can appear within 1 month of little or no vitamin C intake.
Initial symptoms can include fatigue (probably the result of impaired carnitine biosynthesis), malaise, and inflammation of the gums [4,11]. As vitamin C deficiency progresses, collagen synthesis becomes impaired and connective tissues become weakened, causing petechiae, ecchymoses, purpura, joint pain, poor wound healing, hyperkeratosis, and corkscrew hairs. Additional signs of scurvy include depression as well as swollen, bleeding gums and loosening or loss of teeth due to tissue and capillary fragility.

Until the end of the 18th century, many sailors who ventured on long ocean voyages, with little or no vitamin C intake, contracted or died from scurvy. During the mid-1700s, Sir James Lind, a British Navy surgeon, conducted experiments and determined that eating citrus fruits or juices could cure scurvy, although scientists did not prove that ascorbic acid was the active component until 1932.

A strong immune system is very important in a time when things are rough
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2143478


^^THIS^^

That's why I put Vitamin C first.

A Vitamin C deficiency will kill you quick.

If you have no citrus, you can make vitamin C from pine needle tea.

You can't make real colloidal silver at home with an electrolyzer. that actually makes ionic silver which converts to silver chloride instantly when ingested and is toxic and can cause argeri when used topically. Real colloidal silver is a dark grey liquid, not clear or white.
