Did you know that just a pea-sized serving of Shilajit contains about 85+ ionic vitamins and minerals? How many of your daily multivitamins pack that kind of punch? This 30 gram jar of pure, organic Shilajit just might be the holy grail of dietary supplements. Shilajit (commonly known as “stone oil”) is a sticky resin that comes from rocks found deep within the Himalayan and Altai mountains. It’s a natural occurring phytocomplex that has been formed for centuries by the gradual decomposition of super plants by way of tiny microorganisms. Shilajit is one of the more unique substances incorporated into Ayurvedic medicine and is one of Mother Nature’s most powerful compounds.
In the year 1870, British explorer, Sir Martin Edward Stanley observed that monkeys in the Himalayan mountains appeared to remain healthy and agile in their old age, unlike their counterparts from Europe. The monkeys were seen scraping a black, tar-like substance off the side of the mountain rocks and regularly snacking on it. The local indigenous people confirmed that this substance was pure Shilajit and they believed that it was responsible for the monkey’s good health.
What Are the Health Benefits of Shilajit?
Shilajit is primarily composed of the powerful antioxidants humic acid and fulvic acid. Humic acid was previously shown to enhance cutaneous wound healing and show antibacterial properties. Fulvic Acid found in Shilajit has also been used as a treatment for urinary diseases, diabetes, digestive disorders, nervous diseases, tuberculosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, anemia, eczema, bone fractures, and other ailments such as:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Altitude sickness
- Liver cancer
- Heart Health and Blood Pressure Issues
- Low testosterone levels
- Signs of aging
- Herpes related viruses
- Hormone Imbalances
- Menopause Symptoms
- Gastric ulcers
- Stress reduction
- Management of Heavy Metals
Studies suggest that fulvic acid also promotes better cognitive function, therefore opening an avenue toward the study of Alzheimer’s therapy.
How Should I Use Shilajit Resin?
Shilajit is completely safe to ingest daily as a dietary supplement and has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a myriad of ailments and improve overall vitality and quality of life. You might find Shilajit on the market in various forms and consistencies such as: powder, resin, and supplements. Most experts recommend that you opt for shilajit resin as it is considered to be the “purest” form to ingest. In it’s “silly putty” like state this moisture level allows you to pull a small amount Shilajit from the glass jar, roll it into a ball and take it like a pill. If you would rather not get your hands dirty then you might want to use the included scooper tool and scoop your shilajit (the size of a grain of rice and work up the dose to the size of a pea) into filtered water and consume it as a beverage. We recommend having a flavorful chaser nearby as the shilajit has a smokey, mineral-like flavor that some might find to be unfavorable.

30 gram jar of pure Shilajit resin should last between 4-6 months with daily use.
