These accessible, economical options can save your life, whether you are in the zombie apocalypse or on a simple trip to Mexico!

Whether you are traveling abroad, backpacking in the wilderness, or find yourself in a survival situation, water is absolutely crucial. A safe, effective water purification technique can literally save your life!

Over 1 billion people on Earth lack access to clean drinking water [1]. Insufficient infrastructure and/or pollution contribute to the problem.

According to former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan [2]:

Water-related diseases kill a child every eight seconds, and are responsible for 80 per cent of all illnesses and deaths in the developing world –- a situation made all the more tragic by our long-standing knowledge that these diseases are easily preventable.

The World Health Organization reports [3]:

“More than five million human beings die from illnesses linked to unsafe drinking water, unclean domestic environments and improper excreta disposal” every year...Over 2 million deaths occur each year from water-related diarrhea alone, caused by pathogen contamination in the drinking water...Indeed, at any given time, almost half of the people in developing countries suffer from water-related diseases.

Microbes from bacteria to viruses to protozoa to parasites are responsible for a several water borne diseases such as:

  • Amebiasis

  • Campylobacteriosis

  • Cholera

  • Giardiasis AKA beaver fever

  • Hepatitis

  • Shigellosis

  • Typhoid fever

None of these are pleasant, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe.

Symptoms can include [4]:

  • Headache

  • Fever

  • Muscle cramps

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Bloody stool

  • Flatulence

  • Bloating

  • Chills

  • Rash

  • Loss of appetite

  • Abdominal pain

  • Constipation

These conditions can be fatal in people with weakened immune systems or if left untreated.

Diarrhea, for example, leads to dehydration that must be addressed. However, if the water supply is contaminated, then drinking more water is not necessarily beneficial! Additionally, diarrhea is easily passed through the population, especially in areas that lack proper sanitation.

Given the importance of water to health, water quality is a worthwhile consideration.

Both NASCENT IODINE and COLLOIDAL SILVER are safe and effective solutions for water purification, making potable drinking water accessible virtually anywhere! [5, 6]

Nascent iodine oxidizes germ cell structure and enzymes, thereby killing the microbes that cause water borne disease [7]. Colloidal silver acts through a few mechanisms, including dissolving bacteria cell walls [8].

Make sure to purify the rim of your container before drinking from it too! If you are in the wild, running water is better than still water for filling containers. You can use a cloth or bandana to filter out particulates.

Use 5-10 drops of our nascent iodine in every 32 ounces of water, and allow to sit for 30 minutes (taste may be bitter). This method is less effective against giardia in cold water [9].

Use 4 drops of our high quality colloidal silver per 32 ounces of water, and wait 15 minutes.

These are safe and effective solutions we have found for purifying water, and they are well-respected and established methods at that. If you are going to be on the move, they are also convenient!

In summary, contaminated water is a vector for disease in many parts of the world. Common symptoms are abdominal pain and diarrhea, which can range from mild to severe. Nobody wants to get sick, especially when traveling or camping or trying to survive the zombie apocalypse, so easy, safe, and effective options for water purification can be valuable additions to your suitcase or bug out bag.

NASCENT IODINE and COLLOIDAL SILVER are two options we have found for reliable, clean water, PLUS both supplements have numerous other health benefits!
