Known as the "Black gold" of Ayruveda, Shilajit is formed over a very long period of time - it’s a result of the degradation of microbial plant-life that has been pressurized by rock.
As the rocks of the Himalayas heat up, this black gold exudes from the cracks. It is then collected and filtered to remove impurities, before being used as a health supplement. But it’s not a new discovery by any means; Shilajit has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.
Shilajit is an adaptogen - Rich in minerals, as well as fulvic and humic acids, triterpenes and phospholipids. It’s known as “The destroyer of weakness”, which refers to its ability to revitalise - boosting/balancing energy, immunity, testosterone (and hormones in women) and sex drive. As a powerful antioxidant, Shilajit may also contribute to cognitive health, and also improve mood.
