FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Using your BEAM Minerals

You may be wondering how to incorporate your BEAM Minerals products into your health routine? We recommend the following best practices:

  • BEAM Minerals are so gentle that they can be taken on an empty stomach and during intermittent fasting. As always, you need to determine what works best for you.
  • BEAM Minerals can be taken at any time of the day. Most people prefer taking the products as part of their morning supplementation practices.
  • For the first week, do not change your other supplementation. It is usually best to make changes gradually to give your body some time to adjust.
  • Start by taking 1 fl. oz. (approximately one capful) of Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™ daily. BEAM Minerals is 100% bio-available and most people feel a boost very quickly! Do not worry if you don't feel anything right away, just keep taking them! Everyone’s body is unique and yours may need a little more time to respond.
  • Listen to your body! If you think you need more electrolytes and minerals, take an extra half to a full ounce of Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™.
  • During the second week you can begin to taper off on your other electrolyte supplementation – this is optional of course! Once your system has adjusted, you may not need any other electrolyte or micro-nutrient supplementation.
  • After two weeks you can move to a maintenance mode and take 1/2 oz (approximately 1/2 capful) of Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™ daily.
  • If you are super active or engage in intense workouts, you probably burn more electrolytes. Try adding an extra 1/2 oz (approximately 1/2 capful) of Electrolyze™ before your workouts and experience the difference.
  • If you still have cramping or body aches, try using BEAM Minerals Insta-Lytes™. Just spray it on for an instant electrolyte infusion exactly where you need it. Spray directly on muscles before or after workouts to reduce soreness caused by lactic acid build-up.

2. What is the difference between Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™?

Electrolyze™ is primarily composed of Fulvic Mineral Complexes. Fulvic complexes are small molecules that provide inter-cellular transport for nutritional elements into the cells and carry bio-waste out of the cells. Fulvic complexes are flavonoids, which provide many benefits in the body.

Micro-BOOST™ is primarily composed of the Humic Mineral Complexes. Humic complexes are large molecules that are extra-cellular, meaning they do not enter the cells but stay outside the cells. They are highly-charged molecules that attract, through their electrical charge, bio-waste, free radicals and heavy metals. They ultimately carry bio-waste out of the body. Thus, we call them “Nature’s Janitor”.

3. Do you have to take Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™ together?

The answer is no, both products stand alone. That said, Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™ taken together offer the absolute best electrolyte and micronutrient support.

Note:
• If you are taking either one of them alone, the maintenance amount is 1 fl. oz daily (approximately one capful). Each bottle is approximately a one-month supply.
• If you are taking both Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™, the maintenance amount is ½ fl. ounce daily (approximately ½ capful). The Advanced Support Set is approximately a two-month supply

4. Is Electro-BOOST™ a vitamin supplement?

No, Electro-BOOST™ is a trace mineral electrolyte and micronutrient supplement. Electro-BOOST™ capsules contain 70+ naturally occurring, trace electrolytes, minerals, micro-nutrients, phyo-nutrients, amino acids and vitamins in a vegan gelatin capsule.

BEAM Minerals products do not contain sweeteners, stimulants, calories, carbohydrates or harmful chemicals.

5. How do I use Insta-Lytes?

Insta-Lytes is a 100% bioavailable electrolyte misting spray. Insta-Lytes does not have a scent and is composed of nothing but electrolytes, trace minerals, amino acids and pure ionized water. The spray delivery system allows you to apply electrolytes directly where you need them most. Just spray it on and it will start working immediately as it is absorbed directly through the skin.

Here’s some pointers for use:

  • If you have an acute cramp, just spray it on -- most people notice relief almost immediately.
  • Keep a bottle by your bed at night if you tend to get leg cramps at night!
  • Did you have an intense workout and now are experiencing soreness related to lactic acid buildup? Spray Insta-Lytes on the area and see what happens.
  • Did you stay out in sun too long golfing, surfing, swimming or hiking? You will be amazed by the relief Insta-Lytes provides to acute sunburn.

6. Can I take BEAM Minerals with my other supplements?

Yes, in fact, BEAM Minerals will enhance the bioavailability of all your other supplements.

7. How many milligrams (mg) of an electrolyte (Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium, Calcium, etc.) is there in BEAM Minerals?

The quantities of each element in BEAM Minerals products are measured in “parts per million” (ppm), rather than the “milligrams” (mg). Here is the information which usually helps to understand the difference:

Milligrams (mg) vs parts per million (ppm)

In comparing our products to other supplements, people want to know how much of an electrolyte is in our products (like potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium). Usually they are looking for an amount in milligrams (mg).

We have a hard time answering that question, because the electrolytes (and other elements) in BEAM Minerals products are measured in parts per million (ppm). So how can consumers compare?

The answer is a little complex, but here’s the high points.

  • The electrolytes in BEAM Minerals products are provided in “trace” amounts that are completely dissolved and thus 100% bio-available, immediately introduced into your circulation when you consumed them and will produce and active effect.
  • When you take a 320mg pill of magnesium, your body is only able utilize about 12-20% of it as it takes some time because your body has to digest it first. Whatever is not dissolved gets processed out of your body.
  • When you take a capful of liquid Electrolyze™ and/or Micro-BOOST™, you receive approximately 5.22 ppm of magnesium in which 100% of the magnesium is immediately available to your body. In addition, an important to know is that the magnesium in BEAM Minerals products stay in your system much longer building up healthy levels as you continue to take it daily.

8. What are trace electrolytes and minerals?

Trace electrolytes and minerals are chemical elements whose concentration (or other measure of amount) is very low and thus considered a "trace amount". Your body needs trace electrolytes and minerals to function properly and these elements are regularly depleted through the body’s expenditure of energy.

It is important to understand that the body, at a cellular level, can only utilize electrolytes and minerals when they are in these micro or “trace” configurations. When the body is given a powdered electrolyte or mineral, it must first break it down into a micro or “trace” elements before it can be utilized.

Thus, the power of BEAM Minerals – liquid electrolytes and micro-nutrients that are 100% bio-available and immediately ready for your body to utilize them.

9. What are a fulvic & humic complexes?

Fulvic and humic complexes are used by every plant and animal on earth to optimize cellular nutrition and to support systemic detoxification.

For those of you who are scientifically inclined, the actual process of creating fulvic complexes requires multiple, specific microbes to metabolize plants and excrete substances, all in very specific order. This process breaks down plants into their “trace” components and results in fulvic and humic complexes.

These complexes work in a beautifully concerted manner:

  • Fulvic complexes, which are super small (compared to a single cell), carry nutrients into your cells and toxins out of your cells. Fulvic complexes are the delivery vehicles for your cells.
  • Humic complexes which are very large (compared to a cell) gather and then rid your body of toxins, bio-waste, free radicals and heavy metals. Humic complexes are the janitors for your body.

10. Will BEAM Minerals break a fast?

No, BEAM Minerals will not break a fast. BEAM Mineral products are made from fulvic and humic complexes and pure water. There is no significant caloric value in BEAM Minerals. There are also no additives, sweeteners, fillers.

11. Are BEAM Minerals products organic?

Yes! BEAM Minerals products are completely organic. In fact, because they are made from rain forests that decomposed millions of years ago. They are free of the environmental toxins that are present in our modern environment.

12. Is BEAM Minerals safe for kids?

Yes, BEAM Minerals is safe for kids. We all need to restore electrolytes and minerals including children! Please remember to adjust the suggested amount for the size of your child.

13. How many calories or carbs are there in BEAM Minerals products?

The answer is zero. Zero calories, zero carbs, zero chemicals.

14. Are there Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) in BEAM Minerals?

People usually ask about the BCAAs in our products because they are concerned that BEAM Minerals will break a fast. So, the first thing to know about our products is that they do not break a fast.

It is important to understand that the amino acids (electrolytes and minerals) in our products are in trace amounts and are a naturally occurring part of the humic and fulvic complexes that our products are made from.

People who are fasting do not want to take mega-doses of BCAAs in pill or powder form because they can break their fast.

The trace amounts of naturally occurring (not added) amino acids in our products are in such small amounts that they don't break a fast. Instead, they provide cellular support throughout a fast, for cellular nutrition, detoxification and healing. For this reason, Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™ are the ideal support for a fasting.

15. Are BEAM Minerals trace minerals safe?

All the minerals in our products exist naturally everywhere -- this is a natural thing, as earth and our bodies, are literally made of minerals!

It is only when humans use minerals, in unnatural concentrated quantities, such as in manufacturing processes, that these minerals become toxic. Many of the minerals like tin, nickel, silver, barium bromine, etc. are used in the manufacture of all sorts of things including building materials, computer chips, fertilizers, detergents, even kitty litter. The amounts used in these manufacturing processes are artificially concentrated amounts, which when tossed into landfill, leach into soils and the environment in unnatural quantities and can be toxic.

The trace minerals in our products are a naturally occurring part of the humic and fulvic complexes from which our products are derived! These complexes are a natural result of decomposed plants.   One of the great things about the plant-based mineral complexes (humic and fulvic) in BEAM Minerals is that they are derived from ancient plant deposits so they have not come into contact with current environmental contaminants. In addition, they are not, in any way, a result of contamination from unnatural forms of environmental pollution.  

It is important to understand that there are, naturally, the same kinds of trace minerals in the foods we eat regularly. In fact, we need these trace minerals. They are absolutely key to our health!

So, we are on a mission to help people understand trace minerals and how they are used at a cellular level, by every plant and animal on earth -- to uptake nutrients into the cells and also to detox our systems. The depletion of these trace minerals contributes to many chronic issues including all sorts of inflammation and system imbalances that are being experienced by so many people.  

If you would like more information about fulvic and humic substances from which our products are derived, please send us an email at info@beamminerals.com.

16. How much does it cost to take BEAM Minerals regularly?

Taking Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™ regularly costs way less than a cup of coffee and even better, it gives you energy by feeding your cells, instead of hyping your system!

On a maintenance amount of Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™ (0.5 fl. oz. per day or half a capful), you will spend approximately $1.00 per day. The beauty of these electrolyte and micronutrient supplements is that taking them increases the efficacy of all of the other supplementation and nutrition you take in.

Many people find that their need for other electrolyte supplementation goes away once they have loaded their system with Electrolyze™ and Micro-BOOST™.
