How to Take It
For best results, we suggest a very small rice-grain (~100mg) to pea-sized serving (~300mg) consumed 1-3 times a day.
Authentic Shilajit™ dissolves in water. We reccomend using hot, chlorine free water, tea or warm milk. Shilajit can also be taken directly under the tongue but be warned it has a strong bitter flavor that some will find unpalatable. In Ayurveda it is recommended that shilajit be taken with hot milk, ghee (clarified butter) or honey. Vegans may take it with sesame oil or coconut oil. For Vatta imbalance sesame oil is recommended, for Pitta use ghee, and for Kapha take with honey.
What is Shilajit?
Shilajit is a natural herbal mineral resin, which has been used in India and Asia for thousands of years as a dietary supplement and super food. It has been shown to consist of a wide spectrum of minerals, trace elements and naturally occurring Fulvic Acid, which facilitates absorption of these minerals at the cellular level.
Shilajit has been used in the traditional Ayurvedic wellness system of India for thousands of years for a variety of health benefits and is considered to be an important Rasayana(rejuvenator). It is known as the “destroyer of weakness and conqueror of mountains” and is believed to be a powerful adaptogen, which balances and strengthens the body allowing it to function at an optimal level.
The potency of shilajit is considered to be dependent upon the area, altitude and type and color of rock it is collected from as well as the purification technique used to separate the shilajit from the rock. There are four grades of shilajit and only the highest grade (Gold Grade) is thought to obtain the legendary Rasayana powers that shilajit is famous for.
Lotus Blooming Herbs is the only source for genuine, highest gold grade, 100% pure Himalayan shilajit outside of the areas where it is collected. Please read our testimonials for honest feedback about how shilajit has benefited our customers.
How is it made?
Plants that became trapped in the rock of the Himalayas millions of years ago are transformed through time, pressure and extreme temperature changes into a black, gooey, mineral rich resin. In the summer months shilajit can be seen glistening on the surface of the steep rocky cliffs. It is then carefully collected by hand and purified according to traditional Tibetan methods using only spring water to produce the ultra pure Authentic Shilajit™
Millions of years ago when the Himalayas were formed by the continental collision of India and Asia, it is theorized that plant matter became trapped within the rocks. The enormous pressure that India exerts on the Asian continent and the hot/cold weather cycles in the high altitudes of the Himalayas combine over millions of years to produce the rich resinous substance called shilajit. We like to think of it as the diamond of the herbal universe!
For millennia, the mountain peoples of the Himalayas have been hand collecting and purifying this very special gift of Nature. There are several purification techniques but the traditional Tibetan technique produces the purest resin. The rocks containing shilajit are broken up and then soaked in pure mountain spring water. The shilajit, which is water soluble, dissolves into the water and then the sediment is filtered out. The liquid is then put out in the Sun to evaporate the water content. This process is repeated 7 times until the shilajit is ultra pure. In the final process the shilajit is heated to remove any remaining moisture and destroy any possible microbes and spores that may be present. Minerals and fulvic acids are not affected by heat. As pure shilajit is millions of years old there are no valuable nutrients or enzymes to be “killed off”.
How does it work?
Shilajit is packed full of easily absorbable minerals and nutrients which benefit health and well being in a myriad of ways. It also contains high levels of naturally occurring fulvic acid that aids in absorption and assimilation.
A great many health issues can be traced to mineral or nutrient deficiencies. Intensive chemical farming (through pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, etc) and irrigation have removed natural minerals and beneficial microbes from our agricultural land and the plants grown on it. Shilajit contains a wide spectrum of vital minerals needed for energy reactions in our cells. Fulvic acid help to transport these mineral molecules deep into the body.
Shilajit’s uses in Ayurveda are legendary. It is thought to be a powerful revitalization and rejuvenation substance. It is also commonly used for a myriad of supportive measures including increased energy and mental clarity to exercise and muscle recovery. It is famous in India for it’s libido-enhancing properties and is used to support proper function of the reproductive system in both men and women.
How to Use
Suggested Use: For general maintenance take a small portion, about the size of a grain of rice and dissolve in hot water, hot milk or herbal tea 1-3 times a day. Shilajit can also safely be dissolved under the tongue but be warned that it has a strong bitter flavor.
Amount can be increased to the size of a lentil or pea for greater energy and effect. Shilajit is a plant based mineral resin several million years old and its potency is not affected by heat.
*Traditional Ayurvedic instructions recommend that shilajit be dissolved in hot organic milk or taken with ghee (clarified butter) for Pitta, sesame oil for Vatta, and taken with raw, unpasteurized honey for Kapha, to increase delivery to the body. You may also substitute the previously mentioned products with coconut oil. Follow with a cup of hot water.
According to Ayurveda, Shilajit possesses a property called “Yogavahi” which means that it enhances the properties of other herbs. It acts as a catalytic agent for promoting the action of the other tonic agents. So combine shilajit with other herbal remedies to increase their effect. A popular combination in India is to combine Shilajit with Ashwaganda (Indian Ginseng) for supporting the reproductive system in Men. Women will often combine with Shatavari for the same purpose.
Handling: Genuine purified Shilajit is a black gummy matrix of minerals, fulvic acid and other beneficial phytochemicals. Depending on the ambient temperature, it will become gooey and sticky when warm and when cold it becomes more firm and solid.
*This unique quality of changing consistency in concert with ambient temperature is only found with 100% pure and genuine shilajit and is an important indication of authenticity.*Shilajit is much more easily manipulated and workable when warm and soft.There is no need to refrigerate.We have packaged your shilajit in non-reactive, BPA Free, laboratory grade containers made in the USA.
