With a name like that you know it has to be good! But that’s just the beginning…
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 historical use 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 matter 50 million years ago that is compressed from the mountains and eaten up by microbes resulting in a tar like substance. Another name it has from recent years is “Indian Viagra”.* It is said that this can help return the sex drive to the levels of youthful teenagers.*

Once our food supply had a regular amount of fulvic acids, but over the years it has become virtually non-existent. Our shilajit powder contains 51% fulvic acid.
Shiljit also contains Humic Acids
These are known to give you:

Shilajit Powder Details and Dosage
Our shilajit powder is sourced at over 10,000 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. The shilajit rock is combined with the appropriate amount of spring water under a vacuum. It is heated up only to 38 degrees centigrade, the temperature of the body. This is then filtered through cotton cloth to remove dirt. It is cooled down over a long period of time to preserve its crystalline structure.
The recommended minimum daily dosage is 1 gram per day (which is a little more than 1/2 teaspoon). With a 50-gram bag, this will last you 50 days.
The first dose should be taken first thing in the morning and on an empty stomach. Of course, you can take even more. To combat a disease per Ayurveda, in addition to the above you’ll take it 2-3 times per day. Shilajit powder taken with any other food or herbs amplifies their potency so feel free to use it more often and in combination with our other herbs. According to Ayurveda, shialjit is the one thing that can be combined with anything, and it only makes it better.*
It is not recommended to combine shilajit with citrus juices, as this may make aluminum content more bioavailable.
Shilajit powder varies by batch. As shown in the images Shilajit varies from a light copper color to a deep dark brown.
This happens in part due to the time of the year, seasons and region in which the raw materials are harvested.
(This is applicable to many herbal products)
Shilajit’s Side Effects
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.
A Shilajit supplement is not recommended in people with gout as it can increase uric acid levels. Diabetics also need to be careful with it and monitor any medication it can lower blood sugar levels and possibly have insulin like effects.
Historically pregnant women have used shilajit powder, though the West would considered 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.*
