What is Shilajit? Shilajit is a kind of resin, pale brown to blackish-brown in colour, soft in texture, pure, heavy and soluble in water. It mainly consists of a mixture of low molecular weight organic compounds and paleohumus, which naturally ooze out from steep rocks/cliffs in many mountain ranges -especially Himalayan and Hindukush ranges- of Indian Subcontinent. The Himalayan Mountains are understood to have been formed from the collision of the sub Asian and Indian continents about 50 million years ago. During the collision dense vegetation comprising of entire rain forests which were never exposed to any harmful fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and other pollutants, understood to have been trapped under millions of tones of pressure, which slowly changed this vegetation into a rich bioactive material, called Shilajit. Shilajit is the rarest mineral rich nutrient herbal supplement that can not be compared with any other supplement. How it was discovered? The discovery of Shilajit is said to be made by some Himalayan tribal villagers, who had been observing white monkeys (a species of monkey found in Himalayas) migrate to higher mountains in summer months. The monkeys were observed to lick the semi solid substance exuding out the rock crevices. Since observing the animal behaviors were an important part of healthcare research in ancient times, those villagers attributed the great strength, longevity and wisdom of those monkeys to this substance. Curious by the thought, they themselves started taking the substance and reported a broad spectrum of improvement in their health and stamina. It gave them more energy, relieved digestive problems, increased sex drive, improved memory etc. With the passage of time traditional health practitioners established the methods to purify this substance. Studies have shown that people of Himalayan region lead a more healthier, longer & active life due to Shilajit - a natural organic colloidal multi-mineral supplement collected in raw form & further purified. It is not uncommon to find many Indian Yogis even aged 100 years in Himalayan regions having similar stamina and body structure of a youth. The Sanskrit name of Shilajit means Rock Warrior. Its use converts our body as hard and endurable like a rock that helps us in enabling to bear tough and harsh condition. Ancient Indian sages regard Shilajit as a godly blessing so that we humans can preserve our powers and youth for attaining longitivity.
