Shilajit dosage depends on which Shilajit type you plan on using. The goal of this article is to give a short overview of different types of Shilajit, their dosage and usage.
For most issues, brown Shilajit dosage ranges from 300 to 500mg per day. In powder form, it has to be disolved in water and taken at any time of the day. If you don’t suffer from any rare side effect like headache or a rash, you might want to increase the dosage 50mg per day until you reach the maximum allowed dosage of 500mg per day. In case you notice any unwanted effects, try to cut back on Shilajit until you feel normal again.
Nepalese Black Shilajit
Nepalese black Shilajit combined with Triphala shouldn’t be taken every day, but only when you want to cleanse your body. In any case the dosage is 1 tsp, but it depends on whether you want a mild or strong cleansing effect. For the first one just take 1 tsp each day to cleanse the body.
For serious cleansing it is recommended to put 1 tsp of black Shilajit in a glass of juice or water and leave it there for a couple of hours. For best results, drink about a liter of warm water with a bit of salt in it, 45 minutes after taking black Shilajit.
Pure Shilajit Mineral Pitch
This is the strongest type of Shilajit available and it comes in a form of a pitch like substance, unlike brown Shilajit which is in powder form. It works best when dissolved in water or by taking a piece of it and letting it dissolve in your mouth. Truth to be told it doesn’t taste good, but it works like a charm. There is no precise rule for dosage and the best thing to do is to simply stop drinking it when you reach a point when you don’t feel like having more of it.
