ShilajitRegular price $75.00
Shilajit is the #1 rated herb in Ayurvedic Medicine. It is highly regarded as the most powerful anti-aging substance known to the people of India.*
In fact, according to legends it is believed to be a nectar of the gods, to be magical or have divine powers.* And it has historically been used as a Cure-All.*
It is certainly a powerful adaptogen and Jing substance.* It was even kept Secret by Top Yogis so they could get the benefits themselves.
Shilajit was once plant material 50 million years ago that was compressed from the mountains and eaten up by microbes resulting in a tar-like substance. It is also said that this can help return the libido to the levels of youthful teenagers.*
Your shilajit resin comes in a miron glass jar. We recommend using the back end of a spoon as it is a sticky substance and it will gum up the head of the spoon.
The recommended dose is 100 mg which is best taken first thing in the morning. That’s about the size of half a pea. The simplest way to take shilajit resin is to put it directly in your mouth. Allow it to dissolve or simply swallow it down.
It is not recommended to combine shilajit with citrus juices, as this may make aluminum content more bioavailable.
Warning: you may end up with shilajit lips or teeth. This is not permanent.
Remember, it can also be mixed with anything else to enhance the potency and absorption. You can take more doses spread throughout the day if you wish.
Note: Please make sure to store this container in a cool dry place. Take care to keep the threads of the jar and lid clean and free of the pitch as this can cause the container to become ‘glued’ shut. We cannot replace shilajit that has become closed in this manner.
HOW TO USE
Shilajit Contains Large Amounts of Fulvic Acid
Fulvic acid is one of the main constituents of Shilajit that has some amazing benefits.
- Helps move minerals and other nutrients into the tissues that need them*
- Free radical scavenger*
- Supports the immune system*
- Most powerful natural electrolyte known, balancing our cells*
- Makes minerals bioavailable*
Once our food supply had a regular amount of fulvic acids, but over the years it has become virtually non-existent.
Shilajit also contains Humic Acids
These are known to give you:
- Increased Energy*
- Decreased Appetite*
- Better Sleep*
- Stress Reduction*
The humic acids, extracted from Shilajit, were shown to help increase the deliverability of an antiepileptic drug significantly.*
Shilajit has also been found to contain fullerenes, also known as C60. These carbon molecules have limited preliminary research showing they may be powerful for anti-aging purposes.*
Shilajit is Tri-Doshic
If you know your dosha you can combine Shilajit of any type with another substance for best effect.
- Vata – Sesame Oil
- Pitta – Ghee
- Kapha – Honey
Our Source and Process
Our Shilajit resin is sourced at over 14,000 feet in the Himalayan Mountains in Bhutan. Ours is a combination of gold Shilajit (swarna) and copper Shilajit (tamra). Its high quality is assured by the testing for dibenzo-alpha-pyrones, fulvic and humic acids.
This Shilajit resin is collected from waterlogged areas. It is put into wooden barrels for 14 days so that the water gets settled down further. This slurry is rubbed through cotton cloth for filtering. That’s it! This is the least amount of processing available for Shilajit which is reflected in both the taste and potency.
Shilajit has been in use for thousands of years in Ayurveda. If it was dangerous it would have fallen in disfavor. If there are side effects they’re more likely caused by ‘fake shilajit’ or improperly processed kinds.
Shilajit is not recommended in people with gout as it can increase uric acid levels. Diabetics also need to be extremely careful with it and monitor any medication that can lower blood sugar levels with its effects.
Historically pregnant women have used shilajit, though the West would consider it untested. Consult with your doctor. Historically shilajit has also been used with children but with smaller doses of course.
Some research with rats looked at giving them massive doses and found no liver toxicity or excessive iron. Our Shilajit powder and resin is California Prop 65 compliant. Because of the raw materials and how its processed you will find extremely low levels of lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury in it. In fact, shilajit and the fulvic acid it contains seems ideally suited to helping your body to detox heavy metals such as these.*
