Unveiling the Power of Plant-Based Minerals with Dr. Mindy Pelz and Caroline Alan

“The body is a homeostasis engine. Every second, every millisecond of every day, it is looking to clean things up, fix things, and create balance.”

Did you know that each and every cell within your body relies on minerals for its proper functioning? Unfortunately, the majority of us are unknowingly running low on these vital elements. But the good news is that in this episode, we’re diving deep into the realm of minerals, and who better to guide us than Caroline Alan herself?

Caroline Alan is a mineral enthusiast and co-founder and CEO of BEAM Minerals Inc. As a result of her personal health journey, Caroline is devoted to educating people about how minerals operate in the body, why we need to supplement and the benefits of plant-based minerals.

In this podcast, Unveiling the Power of Plant-Based Minerals, we cover:

  • The Vital Role of Minerals in Cellular Health: The Hidden Hunger
  • Decoding Mineral Absorption and Balance
  • Harnessing the Potential of Nature’s Minerals 
  • The Dynamic Duo: Fulvic and Humic Minerals

The Vital Role of Minerals in Cellular Health: The Hidden Hunger

Minerals, which are like the unsung heroes responsible for regulating our bodily functions, take center stage in this discussion. Their impact is significant as they oversee the complex processes happening within our cells. But here’s the concern: there’s a growing problem of not having enough minerals in the soil, which can affect us greatly. Caroline explains the concept of “hidden hunger,” a term coined by the World Health Organization. This term perfectly describes what happens when we don’t get enough minerals – our cells start to crave sugar and salt, desperately seeking these important nutrients. Our conversation reveals something that goes unnoticed: minerals are just as important as vitamins for our health. Caroline emphasizes how they can contribute to things like fertility, balancing hormones, and even making sure our brain chemicals work properly. 

Decoding Mineral Absorption and Balance

As we dig into the three important stages of how our body uses minerals (digestion, absorption, utilization), Caroline tells us why not all the “good stuff” from the healthy food we eat actually makes it into our body. It turns out that our gut, which is like our body’s processing center, needs to break down nutrients into smaller pieces. Caroline mentions the receptors in our gut act like baseball gloves, catching minerals as they enter. And get this: each mineral has its own special glove! This shows how complex our bodies are. Caroline emphasizes that if we take care of our body and give it the right kinds of minerals, it can work wonders. 

Harnessing the Potential of Nature’s Minerals

In this episode, Caroline and I dive into how minerals are linked to our well-being, menstrual cycles, and even detoxifying our bodies. Caroline explains how minerals, especially iron, play a role during menstruation. She talks about how minerals can be like friends helping women dealing with things like cramps, tiredness, and mood swings. Caroline also shares her own story – how she improved her health through plant-based minerals, and how these minerals are like a bridge between nature and our bodies, helping them work together better.

The Dynamic Duo: Fulvic and Humic Minerals

Caroline sheds light on an impressive mineral called fulvic. It might be small, but it sure is mighty! She explains it can carry a whopping 60 times its weight in nutrients and minerals right into our cells. What’s really cool is that it can change its behavior inside cells to release these important nutrients, which help our cells do their jobs. Then there are humic minerals, which work together with fulvic. Caroline tells us about how humic minerals detoxify the body by grabbing onto the harmful stuff and helping it leave our body. And the best part? You don’t need to break these minerals down – they’re like user-friendly helpers that can fit into our daily routine easily.
