Ingredients

All Beachport Liquid Minerals products are made up of a unique chelated blend including the well documented nutritional values of kelps and sea grasses (naturally sourced amino acids). They all include Fulvic acid (a natural electrolyte) which makes the blend bio-active and bio-available. Each BLM product also includes varying amounts of chelated major and trace elements suitable for improving the health and productivity of your livestock.

3-in-1 Formulation

Kelp / Seagrass Extract

Kelp / Seagrass extract is high in 16 naturally occurring amino acids, as well as major and minor trace elements in natural form. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein for utilisation of both dry and green feed. BLM contains the 10 essential amino acids to assist in tissue repair, energy, nervous system, protein balance, stress, plus much more. Read the full article here.

Fulvic Acid

Fulvic acid is one of nature’s most powerful natural electrolytes. It stimulates the rumen, has the ability to bond and dissolve minerals and nutritional elements and is capable of carrying 60 or more minerals and trace elements into cells. Read the full article here.

Chelated Elements

Major elements and essential trace elements are included in Beachport products at sufficient levels for this type of supplement due to the increased absorption and retention ability from the fulvic acid and kelp/ seagrass extract.

Chelated Elements

The following elements are included in the BLM products and play an immense role in the health of your livestock. Levels will vary depending on the BLM product and its use but keep in mind levels are sufficient for this type of supplement due to the increased absorption and retention ability due to the qualities of fulvic acid and kelp/ seagrass extract in all BLM products.

Major Elements

Major Elements are essential minerals that the body requires larger amounts of.

Phosphorus

has key functions in metabolic pathways and physiological functions; such as…

  • Development and maintenance of skeletal tissue (bone and joint health)
  • Energy utilization and transfer
  • Protein synthesis, transport of fatty acids, and amino acid exchange
  • Growth and cell differentiation
  • Appetite control, efficiency of feed utilization and fertility

Potassium

works alongside Sodium, Chlorine and Bicarbonate ions in Osmotic regulation. It has an important role in the nervous system, muscle functions and carbohydrate metabolism.

Sulphur

assists in Microbial digestion and protein synthesis as Sulphur occurs in proteins which contain the amino acids Cystine, Cysteine and Methionine.

Magnesium

is linked closely to Calcium and Phosphorus. 70% of Magnesium is found in the skeleton and the remainder is utilized in soft tissues and fluids. Magnesium plays a vital role in cellular respiration, cellular biochemistry and function, active transport system and the nervous system (improves temperament). Also helps with prevention against grass tetany (Hypomagnesaemia) and milk fever.

Trace Elements

Trace Elements are essential minerals which are important to daily functions but are only required in small amounts.

Copper

is a component in proteins involved in blood which helps with blood health and growth of the animal.

Cobalt

required by the microorganism in the rumen for the synthesis of B12; also functions as an activating ion in enzyme reactions.

Iodine

very small amount is present in the body. Iodine is required in the synthesis of the hormones produced by the Thyroid gland. From the synthesis of the hormones produced by the thyroid gland, Iodine also plays a role in fertility, immune defence, digestion and muscle function.

Manganese

only a tiny amount needed; important as it acts as an activator of enzymes. It has been found it helps with growth, skeletal development, fertility and reproduction. One of the first signs of deficiency is abnormalities in young calves and lambs, also in decreased conception rates.

Zinc

is found in every tissue in the animal’s body. Important to animals as it aids in skin, wool, hair, hoof health & wound healing. Zinc is also involved in nucleic acid metabolism as well as the immune system and electrolyte balance.

Skin health, hoof health and strength, wound healing and growth.

Selenium

involved with Vitamin E in the immune system to protect against heavy metal toxicity. Selenium also assists in the production of the thyroid hormone, muscle development (white muscle disease), milk production, blood health and tissue health of young animals.
