The Amazing Benefits of Shilajit

by Dr. Fareen

Shilajit is a dark, sticky, mineral pitch found in the Himalayan Mountains. It is not directly harvested from a plant, but is created from the slow decomposition of plant material over many centuries deep in the rock of the Himalayan Mountains. As it develops, it becomes a sticky, mineral infused substance, that when stimulated by the intense heat of the summer, it eventually seeps out of the rock.

Benefits of Shilajit

It is especially known for its powerful rejuvenating effects on the body. Translated, shilajit means destroyer of weakness. It supports healthy aging by its strengthening, nourishing and building quality.

Listed below are some of Shilajit’s most important effects on the body:

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Maintains balanced blood sugars and healthy body weight
  • Supports strong and healthy bones
  • Maintains strong kidney and urinary tract function
  • Strengthens reproductive organs and libido
  • Cleanses and strengthens the lungs
  • Supports vitality and stamina and healthy aging
  • Enhances the potency of other herbs and absorption of nutrients in body
  • Helps to remove natural toxins from the body

One of the reasons that shilajit is such a powerful healing substance is that it is packed with beneficial minerals, including silica, iron, calcium, copper, lithium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, sodium, and zinc. Not only is shilajit rich in organic trace minerals, but it also contains fulvic acid, humic acid, amino acids, and plant-based antioxidants.
