WHAT IS SHILAJIT
Shilajit (a.k.a. mineral pitch) occurs in nature as a black, sticky tar-like material, which is created when plant matter breaks down over hundreds of years. It can typically be found amongst rocks in the mountains of the Himalayas and is often used in Ayurvedic medicine, a holistic medical practice dating back millennia.
RICH IN NUTRIENTS & MINERALS
Shilajit is loaded with a variety of bioactive ingredients that positively impact our health.
- More than 84 types of minerals including most essential trace minerals required by our bodies.
- Fulvic acid which is the main bioactive component of Shilajit
- Humic and Uronic Acids
- Plant and microbial metabolites and antioxidants
- Peptides and amino acids
- A trace amount of lipids
- Phenolic Glycosides
This unique cocktail of active compounds, beneficial minerals, and trace nutrients gives Shilajit its rejuvenating properties.
DOES SHILAJIT CONTAIN ANY HEAVY METALS
Raw Shilajit goes through a vigorous process to ensure its purity. We purify it with fresh spring water from the Himalayan mountains and leave it to sundry. We then treat the sun-dried shilajit with additional filter processes that are natural, effective and minimal. This removes the remaining impurities and microbes and ensures we have a fine, smooth finished product. From start to finish, our aim is to ensure we provide the purest form of raw Shilajit for you to consume.
PURITY IS KEY
As with all types of natural supplements, it's important to source it from a reputable company that uses ethical and sustainable methods of production. Only by treating the raw, naturally occurring substance with gentle hands is the innate natural, health-promoting goodness preserved fully. Other harsh processing techniques lose much of the power nature provides, resulting in a less potent and diluted product.
BENEFITS OF SHILAJIT
Shilajit is a substance that's rich in an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant element known as fulvic acid, which is able to combat the cellular damage and free radicals that cause ageing. Including shilajit in your daily routine can help to slow down the ageing process and help to promote better all-round health.
Anaemia (Iron Deficiency)
When the body either loses blood, has trouble absorbing iron or is lacking iron due to a poor diet, it can become anaemic. The result of this iron deficiency is most often headaches, irregular heartbeats, fatigue, weakness and coldness in the extremities.
Including Shilajit in the diet in supplement form is known to increase haemoglobin, red blood cells and haematocrit levels, all of which are vital blood components. With a higher blood count, more oxygen is able to be distributed around the body, leading to more energy and vitality.
When men suffer with a low sex drive, it's usually a lack of testosterone in the body that's to blame. Testosterone levels vary from person to person, but when levels are abnormally low, the resulting symptoms will usually include:
•A loss of muscle tone and mass
•Increased levels of body fat
•A depressed or non-existent libido
Studies have shown that purified Shilajit can provide a significant uplift in testosterone levels when taken for a prolonged period. The research also included a placebo group who didn't see any increase in testosterone at all.
Shilajit has also been found to improve fertility and sperm count in men who took it as a supplement on a twice-daily basis. A study showed that after a three month period, 60% of those tested had an improvement in sperm count.
Shilajit facilitates rapid uptake of nutrients and minerals in the gut. This reduces inflammation in our digestive tract and improves digestion.
Contains minerals like magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron & zinc which are all crucial for bone health
May improve blood flow
Fulvic Acid found in Shilajit can promote healthy blood flow around the body and allow the absorption of essential nutrients into deeper tissues of the body. Shilajit also acts as a detoxifier and may remove harmful toxins
Fuel for Athletes
Shilajit supplementation may have a beneficial effect on exercise performance by enhancing fatigue-related metabolic characteristics and, potentially, increasing muscle mass and strength

We perform the “gravimetric method” to evaluate the percentage of Fulvic acid in Shilajit. It is a chemical analysis where a gravimeter is used. The process starts with preparing a solution comprising a known weight of the Shilajit, followed by the separation and isolated measurement of the fulvic acid. In the end, the separately computed weight of Fulvic acid is deducted from the total weight/amount of the Shilajit.
