a company called WaterOz has soluable minerals. Strange as it sounds, my mother is diabetic, and was on medication to regulate her blood sugar. I sent her a bottle of Chro-Van-Zin, which was specified by wateroz as possessing blood sugar regulating properties. After she began taking the minerals, she lowered her sugar so far, that she had to go to the doctor, he tested her and asked what she was doing different, and when she told him, he instructed her to stay on the minerals, and took her off the meds.
The mineral mixture is Chromium, Vanadium, and Zinc. I checked the website for wateroz, and it appears that the FDA, made them stop advertising the supplement as a Blood Sugar Regulator, accordingly, I couldn;t find the product listed. You may want to contact them and see if they still have any they would sell.

Every body is different, and I cannot, with any degree of certainty, claim or infer that this is an approved treatment, or that it will work for you. You should consult a qualified medical professional before seeking any treatment or therapy.
I have often wondered when thinking about this preparation: what would it take, in a pinch, to produce insulin, or isolate antibiotics that are effective against some bacteria?
Maybe the bug-out plan has to include ham radio in the mix, so you can locate where insulin supplies are being produced as soon after any event as possible?
And make very sure youkeep them bone dry. If Bar-B-Q briquets get damp they emit a toxic gas.
