Frequently Asked Questions

What is Shilajit?

Natural Shilajit is an exudate that is pressed out from layers of rock in sacred Altai Mountains. It is composed of humus and organic plant material that has been compressed by layers of rock. Humus is formed when soil microorganisms decompose animal and plant material into elements usable by plants. Plants are the source of all our food and humus is the source of plant food. Unlike other soil humus, Shilajit humus consists of 60 – 80% organic mass.

The Altai Mountains continue to rise more than 1 Centimeter a year. As the ground continued to be pushed up to become mountains a lot of the plants became trapped by layers of rock and soil and remained preserved for thousands of years. These plants had never been exposed to any chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides. They are gradually transformed into Humus, a rich organic mass that is food for new plant life. Due to microbial action and the tremendous pressure from the weight of the mountains the Humus was transformed into a dense, viscous, mineral rich mass. This is Shilajit.

The trapped layers of Shilajit become exposed due to the freezing winters, hot summer sun and erosion from monsoon rains. Shilajit will “flow” out from between the cracks in the layers of rock during the summer when the temperature of the mountains gets warm enough and the Shilajit becomes less viscous. The native people them climb the mountains, repel down cliffs to collect the Shilajit.

How safe is Shilajit?

We test our Shilajit for safety at independent laboratories to ensure contaminants such as PCB’s, dioxins, furans and heavy metals are below California Proposition 65 and European Union defined limits. Our Shilajit is below California Proposition 65 limits for safety which are the strictest limits in the world. Far stricter than Federal limits. To put this in perspective, fruits and vegetables are exempt from Proposition 65 because they cannot possibly pass. Our Shilajit is very safe.

What are the benefits of Shilajit?
The greatest Ayurvedic physicians have said “There is no disease on earth which cannot be cured by Shilajit”. This might sound as a broad and vague statement but recent research has proven that its adaptogenic properties can indeed benefit nearly everyone. However there are certain conditions that it is especially effective for. Memory and cognition, immune system modulator, anti-ulcer, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Through these properties Shilajit can have a positive effect on many different health problems.
How much Shilajit should I take?

The recommended amount of Shilajit for general use and to maintain optimal health is around 300-500Mg. – pea sized portion per day. There is approximately a 6-8 week period for the therapeutic effects to be noticed. I have personally taken 1000Mg. per day (for bronchitis symptoms) and gotten excellent results. I would recommend you start off with 300Mg. per day and add 100Mg. per day until you achieve the desired results.

To consume, simply dissolve in hot, non-chlorinated water, tea or warm milk and drink.

What are the active ingredients In Shilajit?

The primary active ingredients in Shilajit are Fulvic Acids, Dibenzo Alpha Pyrones, Humins, Humic Acids,trace minerals, vitamins A, B, C and P (citrines), phospholipids and polyphenol complexes, terpenoids. Also, present are microelements (cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, manganese, chrome, iron, magnesium and other).

Fulvic Acid is a unique health component known to contain as many as 70 chelated vitamins. As such, this compound is effective for stimulating a number of healthful effects as well as treating a variety of health conditions. Its unique combination of nutrients make fulvic acid a key component of many bodily processes. The nutrients help boost energy, promote cell life, improve circulation, enhance endurance and stimulate metabolism. Additionally, the compound helps remineralize the body, control inflammation, regulate hormone production, boost the immune system and promote brain function. Fulvic acid also serves as a natural libido stimulator as well as a cleansing and detoxing agent. With all of these benefits, fulvic acid is an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions. The compound can be used to treat neural pain, diminished brain function, degenerative diseases and a variety of others.

Calcium (calcium phosphate) – Calcium is the most present mineral in the human organism. Basic role is to construction and maintenance of optimal state of bones, teeth and ligaments. It is important for cardio vascular system it gives elasticity to connecting tissue. Calcium and magnesium deficiency is common occurrence with older people. With women (especially in menopause), and with men who experience hormonal changes. As the consequence of deficiency and non-utilization of taken calcium and magnesium reduction of level of all these minerals in the organism occurs (especially bones) and osteoporosis occurs. The way to prevent and stop the occurrence and development of osteoporosis is additional intake of these elements in the organism. Beside osteoporosis, deficiency of calcium can cause bone deformity, sensitivity to stress, susceptibility to muscle inflammation and cramps. In case of insufficient intake, calcium deposited in bones is being used it enters in the blood stream and accumulates on the walls of the blood vessels which can cause their blockage. To better use calcium, the presence of many micro elements and vitamins is necessary in the body, above all magnesium, vitamin D and vitamin K. For better absorption of calcium you need to intake vitamins A and C, non-saturated non-fat acids, iron, phosphor and manganese and other.

Magnesium (magnesium oxide) – magnesium is essential mineral. In the organism of a grown man there is about 25 gr of this mineral (about 60% is located in bones). It is necessary for proper functioning of nervous system, muscles, heart, teeth, brain. They take part in the metabolism. Magnesium needs to be added to the diet, especially for women in the period until menopause, and to women that use oral contraception or consume alcohol.

Vitamin K (fitonadion) – vitamin K is very important for metabolism of calcium in the organism. It is necessary for proper functioning of kidneys and the health of cardio vascular system and blood stream.

Vitamin D (calcipherol) – vitamin dissolvable in fat which is dissolved in the organism during sun exposure. In the organism it can be introduced with food. It falls in vitamins that are necessary for the health of the organism, especially for bone health. The name calcipherol came to be because of its necessity for the metabolism of calcium in the organism. In the absence of vitamin D, calcium does not fulfill its role in the metabolic processes in the organism. Together with calcium it provides healthy skin and bone density, teeth and nails; it maintains normal ferment activity (enzymes); they have anti oxidative effect, reduce the risk of occurrence of all types of cancer diseases.
