Discover the New Superfood
Shilajit is a complex biomineral that is hand collected from high altitude rocks of the Himalayan mountains. This mystical substance is a potent and fully safe dietary supplement with a diverse array of curative properties. Because of its health-promoting properties, shilajit has been used as a stressbuster and a medicine for thousands of years. The oldest references to shilajit can be found in Ayurvedic texts dating back millennia.
Raw Shilajit is very rare and considered sacred in mountainous regions around the world. In South Asia, where our shilajit comes from, this mineral-rich compound is said to be a divine offering from the gods. That is, in part, because shilajit is a superfood in its own right.
Pure Shilajit is hard to come by because it takes millions of years to form. It is formed completely naturally when plant remains are decomposed by the action of microorganisms. Under pressure and heat, these remains mix with the mineral-rich soil of the Himalayas to form the perfect bio compound.
Raw shilajit has many powers because of its delicately balanced composition. It contains more than 85 minerals, trace elements, and essential amino acids. Fulvic and humic acids are the primary bio-actives present in Shilajit. These bioactive compounds promote health and well-being by warding off fatigue and improving the nutrient uptake process in the body.
Authentic Shilajit is a blackish-brown, sticky resin that seeps out from the crevices in the mountain rocks during select times of the year. That is why shilajit is often referred to as ‘mineral pitch’ or ‘mountain sweat’. Shilajit needs to be collected with care since any form of harsh processing can tinker with its natural composition and reduce its potency.

Shilajit resin by Nature’s Blends is hand-collected by locals from the high-altitude rocks (over 3000 meters) of the Himalayan ranges. The mineral-rich formulation oozes out from the rocks during a small window in the summertime when the temperature rises.
Shilajit may look curious at a first glance, but it’s interesting how it forms. This rare supplement takes millions of years and a set range of conditions (temperature and pressure) to form. It is made up of dead plant remains that are then broken down by microorganisms. The decomposed plant remains then blend with minerals present in the fertile Himalayan soil to make this complex formulation.
The substance only oozes out from high altitude rocky crevices during the hottest months of the years. Once the temperature of the terrain rises, the rocks heat up rapidly and exude shilajit, which is then carefully harvested by the locals who have been collecting pure shilajit for years.
Shilajit is mysterious because each batch dates back millions of years. Because of the curious way it is produced, its rarity, and the trove of health benefits it offers, it is considered sacred in many parts of the world. It is frequently used in Ayurvedic practices even now - and it has been a cardinal ingredient for a variety of medicines for centuries. Ayurveda is an ancient system of traditional and holistic medicinal practices that focus on promoting health and well-being by restoring the balance between mind, body, and soul.
The best and most authentic shilajit is derived from the majestic Himalayan ranges that crown South Asia. But that does not mean this substance is exclusive to that region only. In fact, shilajit has been used by people from different cultures throughout history so it goes by many names:
English- Mineral Pitch, Mineral Wax
Latin -Asphaltum Punjabianum
Mongolian - Baragshun
Russian - Mumijo
Persian - Mumiya
The best quality shilajit comes from the South Asian region, particularly the Himalayan mountain ranges. Shilajit from the Himalayas is preferred by healers and Ayurvedic practitioners from around the globe. However, shilajit is also collected in other mountainous regions of the world including Russia, Norway, Chile, Mongolia, and even Antarctica.

As with all types of natural supplements, it’s important to source them 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.

Shilajit | Mountain Blood 50g

Allah is my witness, I am not lying to you, I mixed shialite with the lime honey and hot water ... when I took a few sips a fire burned in me as if my body is not able to withstand this power as if it was too much power in one fell swoop! I went to the fitness studio for 2.5 hours because otherwise I couldn't get rid of this strength, I only have one woman 🤣
Mine came in as a resin, but it is a good quality. It’s my second purchase. I recommend to those who want to add some natural fuel their life. Tastes very strong as well, but some honey does the trick.
I love using this product! Having anemia my energy levels fluctuate and after taking this product I noticed an improvement in overall energy! Less fatigue, more alert, and my body feels like it is pushing out excess fluid. Being consistent in taking it is important so having a daily regiment is important! I recommend this product !
