Shelter, food and most importantly water are highly important for any type of emergency-preparedness plan. However, there are other items you should have readily available when an emergency or disaster strikes. Emergency drinks are one of these items that do not receive enough attention.
Over and above storing water, you may want to consider adding emergency-drink powders to the list. One of the main reasons for this item is that they provide outstanding health benefits and include important minerals, electrolytes, vitamins and nutrients that can provide energy when you need it most. These powders also add in flavors that can assist in making that stored water taste much better.
Some of the popular drink-based products you could consider adding into your emergency-supplies can include some of the following:
- MRE Beverage Bases
- Electrolyte And Energy Chews
- Electrolyte Drink Mix Powders
There are various preppers who suggest that Vodka should be added to these supplies as it can help to calm frazzled nerves and can also be used for medicinal uses, cleaning and cooking.
Coffee And Tea
Tea and coffee is regarded as a good source of energy due to the caffeine content that is often required in emergency situations. The herbal teas are also regarded as handy and can offer calming effects or even medicinal value.
Broths And Bouillon
