Why You Can’t Live Without Minerals – BEAM Minerals with Dave Asprey : 813

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we talk about minerals, ask some foundational questions about why they matter to your biology, and why you probably would do a lot better as a biohacker, or just as a human being who wants to be hard to kill, if you pay way more attention to them.

We have more than 30 trillion cells in our body and every single one of them requires minerals to function. You can’t live without minerals. 

Caroline Alan, co-founder of BEAM Minerals, knows first-hand the importance of minerals. Before she started with BEAM, she was working under the constant stress of a corporate career. She had inflammation throughout her body, especially in the gut and mouth. And her adrenals were fatigued. She also had headaches every day, previously unknown gluten intolerance and other body pain. She spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to get better, but nothing worked until she started taking minerals.

The minerals allowed her body to naturally heal and come back to homeostasis. She then went deep into research about minerals and how they work on human physiology, especially plant-based fulvic and humic mineral complexes. This included microbiology, molecular biology, cellular biology, agricultural soil science and the study of plant decomposition. 

A tablespoon of healthy dirt has 10 billion microbes. Each of those microbes excretes a substance called humin, which is the most concentrated form of mineral out there. BEAM Minerals provides fulvic and humic minerals in appropriate amounts that open up new pathways for absorption and allow your cells to take in the good stuff and clear out the gunk. 

This episode gets into mineral depletion and supplementation. What helps your body, why and in what forms.

You’ll learn why Ionic liquid minerals are immediately bioavailable at the cellular level. Another plus? Specific flavonoid benefits of fulvic supercharge any vitamin supplements you’re already taking by making them more easily assimilated by your cells. Cool stuff.

“These humic and fulvic complexes, they’re like Mother Nature’s answer to mineral supplementation,” Caroline says.
