Jase Medical Emergency Antibiotics Kit
In this era of supply chain issues it's a wise idea for all of us to start having the prepping mindset.
This involves stocking up on food, electronics, and other long term emergency supplies.
But one of the most difficult things and yet arguably one of the most important things to stockpile is medications.
You can't just walk into a store and grab lifesaving meds that you don't have a prescription for, unfortunately.
For medications you need to take on a daily basis, you can usually get a 90 day supply from your doctor if you ask them.
However, getting a hold of medications like antibiotics has always been a bit of a challenge. Sure, you could try to buy fish antibiotics, but why take the risk of getting subpar stuff or old product?
Jase Medical has the solution.
For $260 you can get their Jase Case.
It's an Antibiotic Kit along with a Medication guide that gives you a full supply of different life saving antibiotics.
This is all done with a physicians referral, so you are getting human medications from a US based pharmacy prescribed directly TO YOU.
We just got ours and we are really thankful we did. We've been looking for a solution to this problem for a long time, and are glad that we can finally pass this info along to you as well.
BTW If you buy anything with the links we provide on this page we might get a small percentage of the sale. For more info click here.
Why Stockpile Antibiotics?
There are literally thousands of reasons why you would want to secure a supply of antibiotics for "just in case."
Any untreated cut can turn into a major infection. Food can go bad and give you an infection. You can catch any number of bacterial based transmissible diseases, especially in austere environments like a camp with inadequate plumbing facilities.
Your body is surrounded by and even contains trillions of bacteria at all times. Many of them are benign and even helpful, but the bad ones can cause severe illness or death.
Prior to the invention of antibiotics, what are now treatable diseases were some of the leading causes of death in world populations.
Gastrointestinal infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, heart disease and kidney failure (relating to infections or poisoning) were the top 5 causes of death for people and populations.
If the supply of antibiotics were to ever be compromised, we could see these diseases become societal killers again.
Since 2004 nearly all of the critical compounds (80%) which make up the American medical supply are no longer produced in America, but in China and India. Can you envision a time when China might not be interested in selling us these compounds?
So it's not a crazy idea to have backups of some of the most important medications humanity uses.
Medications Stay Good For A Long Time
Despite the presence of expiration dates on pill bottles, many medications stay effective well past these dates as long as they are stored in ideal conditions: dry and cool (68 - 77° F or 20-25° C) and dark.
Liquid medications do tend to spoil faster, so epi-pens and the like will require updating more often.
The bottles I received in the Jase Case all had expiration dates of one year - but multiple studies have shown that it is likely these medications can stay good for much longer.
For us, I'm going to refresh our supply every 5 years, but that doesn't mean I'll toss the old ones - just keep them as backups as they will potentially stay potent for up to 15.

The Emergency Antibiotic Guide
Included with your purchase of a Jase Case comes a little handbook.
This is an excellent resource, it provides you with the basic treatment protocols based on your condition for the medications supplied in your kit.
For us non-professionals, this is essential, since you need to take the right type of antibiotic for the specific disease you are trying to treat. They aren't mix-and-match.
