If you would like a reliable source of good quality
Which kind should I get?
With three kinds available which are best? Well, different people like one kind more than the other.
The shilajit resin, both liquid and tar forms, are the most potent and minimally processed. Just a tiny dose goes a long way and is the most affordable version. The liquid form is easier to use for many as well as to mix into drinks.
The shilajit powder can also be easier to take and mix in other things often times. Because it’s a powder, it is what we use in several of our formulas. We recommend trying them all to see which one works best for you.
What exactly is it?
Shilajit is a mineral resin that com
es out of the mountains at high elevations. It is ancient plant matter that has been compressed and has taken on more of a mineral quality. Alchemically, this is seen as a more potent medicine than anything in the plant world.
How is it collected?
By hand in the Himalayan mountains, at different elevations depending on the type of shilajit.
How should I take the powder?
A spoonful can be mixed with water or any other liquid. It is ideal for blending into shakes or smoothies.
Does shilajit need to be cycled?
No. It’s best effects will come from being on it daily for long periods of time.
What is the liquid shilajit made of?
It is 100% shilajit, no additives or preservatives. There is no water added. It is not a tincture or alcohol extract. It just created through a special minimal processing method.
Can I tincture shilajit?
Historically this was never done but you can try. Please let us know how your experiments go. (One thing to note is that some of the benefits of Shilajit comes from its minerals, most of which will not come over in a standard tincture.)
What’s the shelf life?
Shilajit is considered immortal and thus does not have a shelf life. That being said, keeping it in a cool, dry place it probably ideal.
Can anyone take it? / Should anyone not take it?
People with high uric acid levels may best want to avoid shilajit.
Diabetics need to be careful with it and monitor any medication it can lower blood sugar levels and possibly have insulin like effects.
Historically pregnant women have used shilajit though the West would consider it untested. Consult with your doctor.
Historically shilajit has also been used with children, with smaller doses of course.
When is the best time to take it?
First thing in the morning. This is a special time in Ayurveda. That being said ANY time is the next best answer.
What is a potentiator?
A “potentiator” is something that makes other things more potent or powerful. Shilajit helps to deliver anything that is taken with it, food, other herbs, even drugs, into your cells better. Thus, it can be used to enhance anything.
Can animals/plants benefit from it?
Yes. Being rich in minerals of all sorts, anything that is alive can benefit.
Is it yin or yang?
The idea of yin and yang comes from Chinese medicine while this is an Ayurvedic substance. While most substances are one or the other, shilajit appears to be beneficial to both yin and yang energies.
Does it contain any of the three treasures?
Again this comes from Chinese medicine. It is definitely a Jing substance. The black color attests to that. It is also a Qi substances for its effects on the mitochondria and energy production. Then it also has some Shen effects, so I would consider it to possess all three treasures.
Is it warming or cooling?
Shilajit is warming, thus, may be contraindicated in people that are overly hot. Perhaps this is why it was often consumed historically with milk or other cooling substances.
How do I know this is real shilajit?
Because shilajit is so powerful, marketers have latched onto it, and there is a lot of ‘fake’ or low-quality shilajit out there. But that is not us. This is real shilajit because we have done our homework in finding the best that is available. This is something we personally take unlike the heads of many other companies. We want the best for ourselves, and thus, you benefit. Try it for yourself and see. If you don’t like it we offer a 365-day money-back guarantee.
