Shilajit: The mountain medicine your doctor never told you about

Better known as the “Destroyer of Weakness” Shilajit is used in Ayurveda for its ability to increase longevity, rejuvenate and arrest aging Considered a Rasayana or rejuvenator Its healing properties have been known for centuries by Ayurvedic practitioners

The West learned about Shilajit from Sir Martin Edward Stanley, a British explorer On an expedition to the Himalayas He noticed monkeys eating this “rock-like melted material” coming out from the stone crevices after the winter ice melted and the locals told him it could heal

Today, Shilajit’s healing properties are much better understood Let’s dive deeper into what makes Shilajit so powerful…

Shilajit is a thick black substance naturally compressed from plants & organic matter at high altitudes over centuries It’s harvested in the Himalayan regions near Tibet and Bhutan The Tar-like material is collected from rock cracks And Processed into a resin or powder

Shilajit in its purest form is a resinous tar It’s also known as Mineral pitch, for its long process of plant matter breakdown of plant matter & minerals It’s composed of: 60-80% organic matter 20-40% mineral matter 5% trace elements

Humic and fulvic acid are where most of Shilajit’s healing properties come from Fulvic acids can: Provide Anti Inflammatory support Act as Memory Enhancers Prevent Tau protein accumulation (Alzheimer's) Very promising

Now, you might be wondering “ What are the benefits of taking Shilajit?” Here are some of the main ones you should know…

2. Increases testosterone and boosts fertility Shilajit at 500mg daily was shown to Significantly Boost DHEA and free testosterone just after 90 days These hormonal benefits are definitely impressive

Shilajit was also shown to Increase sperm count and motility in infertile males It’s antioxidant properties reduce Oxidative stress Which is often a contributing factor to poor sperm production

3. Improves Exercise performance Some evidence shows that humic and fulvic acid can improve mitochondrial function Mitochondria = energy-producing centers of your body Very few natural compounds have such a potent effect on Mitochondria

Some of Shilajit’s healing powers are believed to come from dibenzo-α-pyrones and Gallo/ellagi-tannoids Your gut bacteria use these to produce Urolithin, a compound that also supports your mitochondria

4. Increases nutrient uptake Humic and Fulvic Acids in Shilajit increase nutrient uptake These compounds are usually found in healthy soils & make absorption of the minerals easier for all living beings

Our commercialized farming practices and pesticides have destroyed these natural soil reserves Contributing to our food being less nutritious and us being more sick

5. Detox support The fulvic acid in Shilajit stimulates how your body can bind lead, copper and other heavy metals It will also provide you with some minerals you may need This is why Ayurvedic practitioners may use it in detox protocols

6. Enhances cognition The final potential benefit of Shilajit are its is its pro-dopaminergic effect Dopamine = Motivation, Reward Some mice studies show it can increase the release of this brain chemical

So now, the important question remains: "How do I buy a good Shilajit product?" You need to be careful when purchasing It may contain heavy metals levels ( lead/mercury/arsenic) Especially if it isn’t processed properly Good product will have 3rd party tests available

Resins are the “purest” form of Shilajit as I mentioned earlier For a quality resin, look for: Pliability Solubility Flame Form Check these guys out for more info:

Most powdered forms of shilajit are scams If you want to go the Capsule route I recommend Choq Supplements (no aff) or any brand that has PrimaVie Shilajit Some of the research I posted in this thread used this exact raw material in the studies I've been taking & it's great
