Genuine Himalayan Shilajit (10 g)
Shilajit is a natural herbal mineral resin, which has been used in India and Asia for thousands of years as a dietary supplement and super food. It has been shown to consist of a wide spectrum of minerals, trace elements and naturally occurring Fulvic Acid, which facilitates absorption of these minerals at the cellular level.
Shilajit has been used in the traditional Ayurvedic wellness system of India for thousands of years for a variety of health benefits and is considered to be an important Rasayana (rejuvenator). It is known as the “destroyer of weakness and conqueror of mountains” and is believed to be a powerful adaptogen, which balances and strengthens the body allowing it to function at an optimal level.
The potency of shilajit is considered to be dependent upon the area, altitude and type and color of rock it is collected from as well as the purification technique used to separate the shilajit from the rock. There are four grades of shilajit and only the highest grade (Gold Grade) is thought to obtain the legendary Rasayana powers that shilajit is famous for.
Lotus Blooming Herbs is the only source for genuine, highest gold grade, 100% pure Himalayan shilajit outside of the areas where it is collected.
We recommend a rice grain (approximately 100mg) to pea-sized portion (approximately 300mg) be taken one to three times a day.
Shilajit is water soluble and can be dissolved in hot, non-chlorinated water, tea or warm milk. Shilajit can also be taken directly under the tongue but be warned it has a strong bitter flavor that some will find unpalatable. In Ayurveda it is recommended that shilajit be taken with hot milk, ghee (clarified butter) or honey. Vegans may take it with sesame oil or coconut oil. For Vatta imbalance sesame oil is recommended, for Pitta use ghee, and for Kapha take with honey.
