What is Shilajit?

Shilajit is a mineral deposit that is made up of humus and decomposed plant remains. When these components get pressed between layers of rocks for millions of years, they are converted into a gummy substance that may be black, white or brown in colour, and resembles asphalt in appearance. When there is a crack in the rock, the material oozes out of it, and settles itself on the rocks. These are found in high altitude mountains. In Ayurveda, it is regarded as the strongest age fighting and rejuvenating component of the earth.  In English, it is better known as the mineral pitch. The name itself is a Sanskrit term that means “invincible rock”. This is because it is believed that it has the ability to any problem or ailment. The humic composition gives it the healing and health properties for which is known as the conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness.

History

Although the existence of it was known for thousands of years, it was rediscovered by the native dwellers of Himalayan ranges. Mentions of the substance in the Vedic text, and records of certain ancient scientists shows that it was used back then. This element was rediscovered for its health properties by the people living in the Himalayan Mountains. These people observed the white monkeys; who migrated to the area during the summer. The animals were strong, healthy, energetic and had a long life span. The monkeys were always seen chewing a black gummy substance. The villagers followed the monkeys to the side regions of the mountains, and saw them peel off the substance from the surface of the rocks. They brought it back with them, and started ingesting it. They instantly recognized its benefits.

Nutritive value

Research and analysis shows that Shilajit contains triterpenes, fulvic acid and humic acids. Other than that it is a rich source of minerals; which are preserved in their ionic form. That is why when it is consumed it becomes readily active, and starts its work.
