Originating from the clefts and layers of ancient mountain rocks, Shilajit is a widely-regarded biologically active substance.
Often referred to as 'Mountain Oil', 'Mountain Balsam', 'Mumie', or 'Moomiyo', this powerful, mineral-dense superfood is harvested above 3000m from a number of mountain ranges across the globe, including the Tibetan Plateau, Altai Mountains, and the Himalayas. Many of Shilajit's benefits come from its richness in a special chemical compound known as fulvic acid.
Fulvic acid, sometimes termed a 'Super Cell Conductor,' may help the nutrients we consume realise their full potential by helping to dissolve them and transport them deep into the tissues.
Origins of Shilajit Powder
For more than 5,000 years, humans have experimented with shilajit and its various nutritional benefits. This resin-like substance was commonly used in the ancient practice of Ayurvedic medicine, which originated in India and continues to thrive in many countries across the globe, especially in Asia. Under this holistic practice, practitioners encouraged their patients to take shilajit powder, resin, and other supplements due to their nutritional benefits.
Shilajit Benefits: How To Use This Powerful Substance
Shilajit has been shown to be beneficial for use for people ascending to high altitudes and for boosting energy and overcoming tiredness, exhaustion, and fatigue. In Sasskrit the definition of the word Shilajit translates as “Conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness” and ‘Winner of rock’. Considering its high mountain origin above 3000m, these benefits are an interesting coincidence.
Shilajit has also been found to have nootropic and anti-inflammatory properties and to be a powerful antioxidant phytocomplex with an ORAC index score up to 500 Trolox units per gram of Shilajit Resin (much higher than Noni Fruit and blueberries).
Shilajit Oil can be used both internally and externally. Adults can mix one-quarter teaspoon (0.5-0.6 grams) into a glass of warm water, milk, honey, Kombucha, or other drink. This concoction can be sipped throughout the day with meals Externally, Shilajit can be combined with face masks, shampoo, and other beauty treatments.
