Shilajit (pronounced sheelajeet) is an ancient medicinal first found in the higher altitudes of the Himalayan Mountains. It is formulated naturally through a multi-century process of plant matter degradation where it emerges through rock crevices in a sticky black resin form.
Shilajit is a humic substance with a large fulvic acid composition which means it is rich in many crucial nutrients necessary for healthy cell repair and development.
Shilajit has been recognized as a pillar of the ayurvedic medicine tradition for thousands of years. It is considered a ‘rasayana’ in this tradition which literally means ‘the science of lengthening life’.
Shilajit is considered 100% safe by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) when taken in correct dosages.
Shilajit benefits are purported to be plentiful with several scientific studies supporting its medicinal merits.
It is known to be an anti-aging rejuvenator that boosts memory and cognition, an anti-inflammatory that improves gut heath and nutrient absorption, a hormone regulator as well as a dark colored antioxidant more powerful than blueberries.
Many people around the world start their day with a dash of shilajit powder in their coffee, tea or water as it is possibly best known for its energy and immune boosting properties.
Special note: people with active heart disease, hypertension, gout, or on high blood pressure medication should consult their healthcare provider before taking shilajit.
*Never take a low quality shilajit product from an unknown source as it may be toxic to your system.
