The best shilajit is harvested high in the Himalayan mountains. Shilajit is a rare, naturally occurring, nutritive plant and geological substance that is harvested from rock formations. It is not synthesized in a laboratory, and it is not a generic combination of vitamins produced in a factory.
  • Decaying plant material mixes with healthy bacteria in the soil, rain and snow melt allows this dense substance to seep deep into rocky crevasses, the moisture leaches minerals from the rocks, layers of stone and soil tightly compress everything, the combination now “ferments” in this compressed resinous form for a very long time. After many years, intense heat from the summer sun warms the rocks causing the resin to become soft and expand, the resin slowly seeps from the cracks to the surface and dries in a semi solid form on the rocks… and there you have it SHILAJIT!
  • The shilajit is then harvested by hand. In its raw form there are many heavy metals and debris in the Shilajit. The shilajit is then purified, again by hand, to remove any contaminants and make it safe for consumption.
Research indicates that an effective dose in an average person is from 350-500mg. For Premium Shilajit, this means you should consume an amount approximately the size of a small pea. View more information on shilajit dosage.
Unfortunately no, they are not. Rarely is there a full dose of shilajit inside the capsules and instead you are taking a large amount of filler like silica, plant cellulose and other junk. Another concern with shilajit capsules is there is no way to confirm the quality or authenticity of the shilajit within. It is very likely that the “shilajit” in these capsules is fake, low quality, or a cheap imitation.
Shilajit powders are almost more questionable than the capsules. The powdered form of shilajit is the easiest to adulterate, or mix fillers into.
Yes it is. Pure shilajit means there are no generic fillers and that the substance has been properly purified to remove contaminants and heavy metals. Pure shilajit is not to be confused with raw shilajit, which is shilajit in its natural form. Raw shilajit is not safe for human consumption.
