without knowing EXACTLY what is in the mixture you are refering to , IMHO it is more likey to be a short term only solution .

there are a variety of such preparations out there - and none are really intended to be used for more than a few days

as they lack many ammino acids and vitamins / minerals etc

they will keep a healthy person at peak efficiency for a few days - because the mody has reserves of protien , fat , vut c , vit a etc etc

but you cannot live of them long term

could multi-vitamins be a helpful addition to a long term bob? I hadn't thought of that until seeing this thread. Hmmmm. Perhaps some electrolytes drinks added to some drinking water would also help a great deal. Food for to speak.

i see that i should have done this from the start so here is the url to the co site
so you can see just what survival tabs are and what they contain. what i was looking for is first hand info from anyone who had actually used them in a long term situation say 10 -15 days.

Hey , thanks for the link .


unless i have just ha a major barain fart , the maths of thier " nutritional value " does not add up

the claim is

"15 Days' Food Supply Under 2 Lbs"

now thier figures are horredously laid out

but my reading of it is :

12 Tabs Per Day Is All You’ll Need The Survival Tabs will keep you alive and moving for months at a time

and further

Servings Per Container: 15 < AND > 240 calories / serving ,< AND [ my calculation ] > just under 50 gms / serving

coupled with the claim of < 2 lb / bottle .............. with one bottle giving 15 servings [ 750 grams ] , that gives < 2 lb / bottle

now could you live " for months " on 240 cal / day ????????????????

i know chuffing well i could not .......... and i am a lean mean fighting ape

so like i said - unless i have made a major miscalculation , IMHO these are feck useless

absolutley - i believe that several members list them as part of thier BoB

the vit / mineral contents of many hi energy / low weight foods is quite attrociously low

and you cannot really have your " 5 a day " ration of fresh fruit and veg portions in your BoB

" empty calories " will fuel the body - but tour vital vit / mineral reserves your body stores are being leeched away -

so while you can " run on empty " for a while - its best to keep your reserves full

esp as a tube of " one a day " multi vitamin tabs is so small and light
