The ancient Asian substance known as Shilajit is mostly unknown in Western medicine, though it has many amazing properties. Shilajit is a tar like substance which oozes from the rocks in the Himalayan mountains.
For millenia it was ignored as locals were unsure if it was a poisonous substance, but after native chimps were seen eating the substance the locals decided it must be safe.
After the first few people began to try Shilajit the health benefits were clear for all the natives to see. Body and brain function were improved drastically, leading to the nickname the ‘destroyer of weakness’.
Shilajit has since been studied on many occasions and it has been found that it is one of the most nutrient dense substances in the world.
Over millions of years the Himalayan mountains were formed, with immense pressure forcing the plains, abundant with life and mineral into layers of compacted rock.
The residues that seep from the rock are the run off from millions of years of plant, animals and minerals, giving it it’s rich nutrient base.
It is thought over 6,500 plant species alone are present in the black substance, which holds the different benefits from each and every one.
Studies have shown that Shilajit contains traces of every single mineral known on earth.
Shilajit helps the body so much as it restores ultimate balance in the body, soothing which is rare in the modern world.
It tops up dwindling levels of minerals that are impossible to come by in the modern diet.
It nourishes the body’s deficiencies and helps reduce stress, controls hormones, balances the mood, improves sexual function, strengthens the brain, among many other benefits.
Shilajit can be found secreting from rocks in the Himalayas, but it has also been harvested and can be sold from select stores in certain places online.
