Shilajit is a rejuvenating herb and an adaptogen. Shilajit contains at least 85 minerals in Ionic form, as well as humic and fulvic acid. Shilajit is a Sanskrit word meaning "conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness." It is composed of humus and organic plant material that has been compressed by layers of rock and mixed with microbial metabolites. This hummus and organic plant matter then ooze from the rocks of the Himalayas as they become warm in the summer months. It is said to carry the healing power of the great mountains from where it is sourced.
Shilajit is an important herb of the ancient Hindu material medica and is currently used extensively by Hindu physicians for a variety of diseases. Traditional uses primarily focus on diabetes and diseases of the urinary tract but also include edema, tumors, wasting, epilepsy, and even insanity. Modern indications extend to all systems of the human body with a significant number of additions in the reproductive and nervous systems. Some of the most interesting studies confirm shilajit's uses as an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) agent and its nootropic (enhancer of cognitive ability and memory retrieval) activity. Shilajit is truly a remarkable substance with a long history of human usage for healing, building, and rejuvenation. Taken alone this herb strengthens the immune system, fortifies cells and muscles, and can be used as an antioxidant, an anti-stressor, an anti-allergen, and an anti-asthmatic. Shilajit mixes very well with Ashwagandha for seminal debility.
