Shilajit is a Sanskrit word that means “Conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weaknesses.” It is a live, gum-like resin produced when medicinal plants at high altitudes, typically in the Himalayas of India, gather in the crevices of rocks. The compression causes them to decompose and ferment over time, creating the medicinal resin we know as Shilajit. This organic fermentation takes around 40 years, although it can continue for centuries. In Ayurvedic medicine it increases quality of life, physical strength, and protects against illness through whole-body rejuvenation.
The body effortlessly integrates Shilajit’s organic bioactive compounds into the wall of every cell, increasing nutrient content and longevity with easy assimilation. It absorbs quickly into the intestines, good for those with poor absorption and/or nutrient deficiencies, and can leave the body within hours after ingesting, leaving behind its rich mineral content while removing toxic chemicals and stagnant energy. Fulvic Minerals help absorb the minerals and nutrients from food, making them an excellent support for those with poor absorption. The main difference between Shilajit and Fulvic Minerals is that Shilajit is more concentrated, with Fulvic Minerals considered more convenient.
Traditionally, it has been used as a remedy for anemia, bronchitis, epilepsy, jaundice, spleen disorders, correcting digestion, nervous system ailments, and even conditions such as anorexia. In Ayurveda it is called “rayasana,” which means “rejuvenator.” Its fulvic acid content has recently gained attention in the medical community for its ability to block tau aggregation, a marked event in neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s. Fulvic acids are organic compounds created by live decomposition of leaves, soil, and other natural materials. This leaves behind biologically active acids in shilajit resin that the body easily recognizes and uses as a powerful adaptogen.
Shilajit is recognized to increase production of ATP, the body’s primary energy source generated from the mitochondria of cells. It acts as a powerful remedy for increasing rates of fatigue observed in modern populations, with marked differences in energy occurring quickly. It is a potent anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, immunomodulator (modulates immune response), and antioxidant. Shilajit’s adaptogenic qualities are believed to help individuals manage stress and enhance memory and learning. Clinical research is in early stages, but has shown efficacy in many conditions including neurodegenerative disease and radiation-induced damage from cancers.
