Keep Your Bones Healthy with Plant-Based Minerals

Keep Your Bones Healthy with Plant-Based Minerals

Bone health is one of the most important parts of aging well. Strong bones keep you mobile and pain-free, increasing your “healthspan” so you can move with confidence, regardless of age. 

But it can be challenging to keep your bones strong, especially after age 40. Because of menopause, bone loss is especially prevalent in women: about 54% of us develop osteopenia (low bone density) by the end of menopause, and another 30% develop osteoporosis[*]. 

That low bone density is dangerous. It increases your chance of fracturing a bone[*]—and if you develop osteoporosis, it can happen during an everyday activity, like bending at the hip or taking the stairs. 

That’s why it’s so important to keep your bone density high as you get older. You want to navigate the world with confidence—which means keeping your bones flexible and resilient to stress.

Your Bones Need Minerals To Stay Strong

Your bones decline as you age because of something called bone resorption. As you get older, your body pulls more and more minerals from your bones and uses them elsewhere[*]. 

The result is that your bones end up deficient in calcium, phosphorous, iron, magnesium, and several other essential minerals. They weaken and become brittle, and they also struggle to replenish their mineral stores. 

If you want to restore bone density and keep things like chronic pain and mobility issues at bay, you have to replenish all those lost minerals.

A Calcium Supplement Isn’t Enough for Strong Bones

Traditionally, doctors suggested taking a calcium supplement as you age, to help restore bone calcium levels and give your bones the raw materials they need to grow. 

This is good basic advice: plentiful research shows that taking calcium helps prevent bone loss as you age[*]. 

However, doctors stopped suggesting calcium supplements a few years ago, after discovering that taking calcium alone, while great for bones, causes problems elsewhere in your body. For one thing, it can lead to kidney stones[*], which are painful but not life-threatening. 

But the bigger issue is that high calcium levels deplete magnesium and potassium, which causes damage to your heart over time[*]. 

In addition, newer research has found that bone growth requires a variety of different minerals—not just calcium[*]. 

For these reasons, doctors now suggest taking a full spectrum of essential minerals for bone health. Replenishing all your essential mineral stores will give your body the raw materials it needs to stay strong as you age, without the imbalances and side effects that can come from single-mineral supplements.

Replenish Your Body’s Minerals in 30 Seconds A Day

Normally, if you want to balance your mineral stores, you have to test your mineral levels, take a handful of different mineral supplements in the right ratios and forms, and then retest to see what has changed. It’s an expensive and time-consuming process. 

That’s why BEAM Minerals is so good. They offer full-spectrum, plant-based minerals that contain every essential mineral your body needs, all in the correct ratios to promote mineral balance. 

With just two supplements, Electrolyze and Micro-BOOST, you can refill all your body’s mineral stores at once. They come in an ionic liquid form, which means they require no digestion. As a result, they’re far easier to absorb than most pill or capsule-based mineral supplements. All you have to do is take a capful of each in the morning (don’t worry; they taste like water). 


You’ll feel BEAM Minerals working within minutes—it’s like your body and brain are turning back on for the first time in years. And over a few weeks, as your mineral stores gradually refill, you’ll enjoy more gradual benefits, like stronger bones and deeper sleep.
