INSPIRED BY THE SPACE PROGRAM
The Survival Tabs were developed more than 30 years ago and were inspired by the early space program. Due to zero gravity in space, American scientists theorized that astronauts might experience difficulty digesting food properly, potentially causing malnourishment. Of great importance was maintaining the astronaut's physical functions, such as dexterity, stamina, coordination, and mental alertness. Thus began the search for a food product that would provide the daily nutrition needed to carry out missions while meeting the tight storage requirements of spacecraft. By combining high biological value proteins, carbohydrates, and fatty acids with 100% USRDA of 15 essential vitamins and minerals in a delicious chewable tablet, The Survival Tabs provide the best possible nutrition in the smallest possible volume. Just as the space program has evolved, so has the uses for The Survival Tabs. With a significant 25-year shelf life, The Survival Tabs are ideal for long-term food storage. Because they are packed with vitamins and minerals to help sustain energy and are also lightweight and easy to carry, The Survival Tabs are being used by outdoor enthusiasts, busy professionals, athletes, and rescue teams around the globe.
HOW DO SURVIVAL TABS WORK?
The development of Survival Food Tabs was guided by several key considerations to ensure they serve effectively as a compact, emergency nutritional solution designed for life-sustaining purposes:
Efficiency of digestion
The principle behind the formulation is that minimizing food consumption can actually enhance the body's efficiency. Essentially, eating less means food stays longer in the digestive system, allowing for more thorough absorption of nutrients.
Digestibility and nutritional quality:
A significant portion of typical diets isn't fully digested or utilized for energy, leading to inefficiency in nutrition. In contrast, Survival Food Tabs are engineered for 100% digestibility and absorption, emphasizing the superiority of nutrient quality over quantity. The consumption of low-quality proteins, carbohydrates, and fats can burden the digestive system, particularly the kidneys. Survival Food Tabs prioritize high biological value proteins that are fully utilized by the body, preventing the breakdown of the body's own tissues for protein. They also contain essential fatty acids and highly efficient carbohydrates, ensuring complete utilization without waste.
Complementary to available food in survival scenarios:
Recognizing that most survival scenarios offer some form of additional food sources, Survival Food Tabs are crafted to act as a critical survival margin. Whether one is stranded in a jungle relying on found insects, berries, and small animals, or surviving in a desert or at sea with minimal resources, these tabs are designed to sustain life. They provide essential nutrition until rescue or until one can adapt to the situation, essentially serving as a bridge to survival by supplementing whatever else can be scavenged.
Survival Food Tabs are intended to support survival until rescue or until more conventional food sources can be found, ensuring one can maintain vital energy and health in the face of adversity, exposure, or dehydration.
