Stop Vitamin Deficiency Symptoms: Sources of Vitamin A, B12, and More in Grid Down

Stop Vitamin Deficiency Symptoms: Sources of Vitamin A, B12, and More in Grid DownLet’s learn some Natural and Other Sources of Vitamins such as A, B12, and MORE to stop vitamin deficiency symptoms and consequences in an Electrical or Power Grid Shut Down Event.

During a TEOTWAWKI or SHTF scenario, there is a great chance that the people that actually have preps and are fairly self-reliant will have vitamin deficiency.  A lot of the people out there that call themselves preppers will be loaded up on cabohydrates and simple sugars, because these are cheap fillers that boost energy and have a long shelf-life.

If you have listened to me for any length of time, or have been one of the select few that have had exposure to my “How to Be a Prepper: One Year Emergency Preparedness List for Survival”, you would know most of the basics that you would need for a fairly balanced meal to keep yourself healthy and fit.  But Readers of my survivalist blog or listeners of my prepper podcast are just a very small portion of the entire survival community, most of which just sell a bunch of rice, beans, and freeze dried foods.

I just want to make sure you have some knowledge of the vitamins you will need stored up to supplement this lack of nutritious food in your pantry.  If you don’t have enough of many of these vitamins, you could end up severely injured, disabled, or dead.
