Shilajit, also known as 'mummiyo' is a naturally-occurring mineral resin extracted from the mountain rocks of the Himalayas (in India and Nepal), Chile, Russia, and even Afghanistan during summer. Organically concocted by what could be called nature's gut bacteria, it is formed when an ecologically-specific set of microorganisms gradually biodegrades a botanical blend of herbs into edible organic compounds. Taking over 100 years or more to be produced, this ancient superfood was commonly used as a nutraceutical supplement by our Asian predecessors. With mentions of its healing potency in classic Ayurvedic texts, it boasts dark chocolate to charcoal black hues with a palatable powder or pasty consistency. Its pure, organic, and century-long assimilation guarantees its safety for consumption and effective bioavailability.
Ayurvedic Rasa (Taste) & Flavor Profile:
Astringent, Savory, Bitter, Mildly Smokey, and Earthy flavor.
With inherent heating properties, it helps reinvigorate a sluggish Kapha dosha and ground the erratic nature of the Vata dosha, though it can aggravate the Pitta dosha.
Alongside the ancestral goodness of Shilajit, we infuse the herbaceous extracts of Ashwagandha to amplify its immuno-boosting effects, provide natural hormonal balance, and protect your body’s general functions from stress. We also blend in the potent trio of Trikatu (made up of Black pepper, Dry ginger, and Long pepper) for effective bioavailability of the smallest to most abundant nutrients as well as optimal absorption and assimilation.
Its bioactive compounds of fulvic acid, humic substances, selenium, and other oligo-elements are rare antioxidant occurrences among most food groups. Studies say that Shilajit exhibits profound rejuvenation effects for most physiological functions at a cellular level while it is a renowned natural anti-aging elixir and secret to longevity in Ayurveda. Its benefits also include boosting energy levels, supplementing iron for those with anemia, managing blood sugar and fat metabolism, balancing the gut microbiota, maintaining healthy kidney function, enlivening the liver, supporting renal function, lowering inflammation, and enhancing cardiovascular, cognitive & neurological processes.
What's The Best Way To Consume Shilajit?
Available as powder, one can take a pinch of Shilajit with water, ghee, milk, or any fat-soluble moderator along with all three meals of the day.
Who Can Consume Shilajit?
It can be consumed by all ages over 10 years, especially those who notice occasional chronic fatigue, challenges with memory or cognitive functions, and aging-related troubles. Those with hypertension, and blood pressure fluctuations, who are on specific types of medication, pregnant or nursing, should consult with a certified Vaidya or their health care practitioner before consuming Shilajit.
