SHILAJIT is a thick, sticky, dark exudation obtained from the steep rocks of Himalayan mountains.
For thousands of years, it has been known to the endogenous people for its ability to restore physical and mental strength, enhance longevity and vitality, and bring inner elements into balance.
Countless legends and stories describe its miraculous effects and abilities to conquer any disease or ailment, and thus it has been given a Sanskrit name Shilajit which means the Rock-conqueror.
Its fame and glory reached our days and has been the subject of scientific research in Soviet Russia and India since the early 1950s.

Later on, Western world was also introduced to this unique substance, and many researches have been carried out on its chemical composition, bioactive composition and potential medicinal properties and uses.
Shilajit is described as a mineral oil which forms on the sunny side of the mountains.
Plants and organic matter over time get trapped in layers of rocks and, due to the pressure of the mountain’s weight, extreme temperature fluctuations and flow of melted ice, they are being transformed into a dark, rich mineral mass that flows out of mountain crevices and is then finally cooked by the warmth of the sun.
It takes thousands of years for this magnificent transformation to take place, resulting in a tar-like substance containing over 85 minerals in ionic form, trace elements, vitamins, fulvic acid, humic acid and many other bioactive components.
We obtain raw Shilajit from the rural high-altitude mountain regions of the Kingdom of Bhutan, one of the purest places on Earth.
It then undergoes extensive process of purification, adaptation and refinement in accordance with the cumulative wisdom of Sowa-Rigpa and the methodical experience of Dr. Sherab Tenzin.
Afterwards, we apply modern methods of extraction that allow all those valuable elements to be easily assimilated and metabolized by the body.
Apart from being an extremely rich source of micro-elements that are essential for proper bodily functions, Shilajit has many unique and valuable properties which affect all parts of organ systems.
Its particularly high content of fulvic acid provides beneficial effect on digestion and helps the body to absorb nutrients.
Fulvic acid is naturally high in electrolytes and antioxidants that act on cell walls and facilitate transport of Shilajit microelements deep into cells, thus preventing deficiency of essential elements and consequently effectively prolonging the life and health of a cell and protecting it from free-radical damage and oxidative stress.
Fulvic acid is also known to protect against cognitive impairment and neurodegenerative disorders.
It is capable to maintain the required oxygen levels in body during hypoxia through increasing the oxygen carrying capacity of blood, improving circulation and its diffusion in tissue.
It is highly effective as protection against high-altitude sickness, its symptoms and complications.
Shilajit enhances the production of energy (ATP) by increasing efficiency of the process of oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria and thus enhances physical and mental strength, relieves chronic fatigue, tiredness and lethargy, while reducing the recovery period of injured cutaneous and musculoskeletal tissues, promoting their active regeneration, decreasing healing time and improving general wellbeing, including regulation of body temperature, sleep, appetite and weight.
It is known to improve memory, give clarity to mind and sensory organs, support the strength and power of secretion organs, thus supporting ethnic tales of its rejuvenatory, strength-giving and anti-aging capacities.
Moreover, Shilajit provides protection from pathogenic microorganisms by boosting immune system and simultaneously modulating its responses, by preventing or correcting excessive immune reactions in forms of allergies or chronic inflammations.
Shilajit gives particular beneficial support for diabetic patients by improving lipid profile, balancing glucose levels, enhancing physiological energy status, and it has strong antioxidant and healing activities.
It supplies body with iron, helps its absorption and proper assimilation; participates in neutralization and removal of poisonous and toxic substances from the body; protects gastrointestinal system, heart, liver, kidney and blood vessels from damage and enhances proper metabolic activities in those tissues.
Furthermore, Shilajit opens blockages, destroys congestions, dissolves tumors and promotes overall balanced movement of the Wind element in the body.
It also helps to remove excess fluid and thus reduces edemas (peripheral, pulmonary and cerebral).
