SHILAJIT - A Gift from the Himalayas
Shilajit extract, a potentially powerful, herbal energy source, is known in its native lands as the "Conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness."
Shilajit is a black/brown substance that seeps out of the Himalayan Mountains during the summer, and is jam packed with trace minerals and Fulvic acid.
Shilajit is the final resulting compost material from a continent that thrived before modern humans were alive. For millions of years, organic plant matter has been compressed under tectonic plates that are now the Himalayan Mountains, and it has been decomposing this whole time, ever since the mountains first started forming.
What we know as Shilajit is the result of the compression of these antediluvian rain forests: a black tar-like material, one of the densest and most complex substances known to man. Because Shilajit has undergone thousands of processes of photosynthesis (conversion of solar energy), stored within it is unparalleled amounts active sun energy, and this amazing source of vitality is now available to everyone.
The chemical compounds in Shilajit are some of the most complex chemicals ever examined, and can only be so far recognized by looking at minute fractions of the compound and comparing it to other known chemicals.
Shilajit is traditionally extracted to eliminate all impurities, and is still the common way to use Shilajit in India, Nepal, and now elsewhere. In this area of the world, and especially in the Ayurvedic medicine system, Shilajit extract often is referred to as the ultimate medicine.
Shilajit is harvested only during a couple of weeks out of the year, when it's warm enough in the high altitude of the Himalayas for it to ooze out between the rocks. Legend says that Nepalese people witnessed monkeys scampering up and down the mountains without any sign of exhaustion, and wondered how the monkeys could possibly be so strong and full of such supreme endurance, especially at such an altitude. So the people decided to follow the monkeys to track their habits, and what they found was that the monkeys were eating copious amounts of Shilajit, and decided to adopt this habit themselves. And now, after thousands of years of therapeutic use, Shilajit extract has come to be one of the most respected medicines in that part of the world, known as the panacea for all weakness.
The molecules found in Shilajit (and Shilajit extract) are among the most complex ever found on Earth, making it akin to an atom bomb of sun energy that can be harnessed and used by your body and mind.
The unparalleled complexity of Shilajit extract makes it a very mysterious substance. The only way to identify these complex molecules is to analyse them in fractions, because only small fractions can be recognized based on previous observations of other molecules.
As a whole, with all the fractions synergistically united, these molecules in Shilajit extract are unlike anything else. They are a supreme source of powerful energy.
For millions of years animals had at their disposal many trace minerals through water, soil and plants. But now our abundance of trace minerals is significantly decreasing in the world’s soil and foods. Shilajit extract happens to have at least 85 identified trace minerals which are crucial to our overall health and energy levels. Including Shilajit extract in one's diet allows our bodies to function optimally, with the abundant amounts of trace minerals being one of the reasons.
The abundant Fulvic acid in Shilajit extract is believed to be therapeutic in many ways, and is one of the world's best sources of electrolytes, which are essential for your well-being. Shilajit extract strongly detoxifies heavy metals with its dibenzo-alpha-pyrones, and is thought to be anti-inflammatory and pain relieving, to help eliminate ulcers, to have an anti-anxiety effect, to be anti-aging and an aphrodisiac, and to have what is called a neotropic effect, meaning it helps the brain function optimally.
Shilajit extract also is reputed to be a strong antioxidant, purify the blood and help build red blood cells, improve digestion, energize the body and mind, help move trace minerals into bones, teeth and muscles, balance blood-sugar levels, which is essential for your overall health and wonderful for helping diabetes. Shilajit extract is a supreme all around tonic.
In the system of ancient Ayurvedic medicine, it is said that there is not one ailment on the planet that can't be healed with the aid of Shilajit extract! Consuming Shilajit extract is the surest way to harness the full potential of the Sun and Earth!
Recommended serving and method of ingestion for shilajit extract:
1/8-1 teaspoon, 1-2 a day with milk or simply mixing with 1-2 cups of water or juice works well.
Or you can place a little Shilajit extract on your tongue and just swallow it like you would a pill, washing it down with water.
Our Shilajit can be prepared in capsule form if you prefer.
We also recommend cycling Shilajit extract, taking 1-2 weeks off once every three months.
Starting with the lower dose and working your way up is best. Because Shilajit extract is detoxifying and on rare occasions people experience detox symptoms, we recommend gradually increasing from a small dose to minimise this possibility.
