Smoothies and Shilajit: A Healthy Pair for a Better Life

Smoothies and Shilajit - A Healthy Pair

Drinking smoothies and taking shilajit every day can have a great impact on your health!

Life is busy for us all. We’ve yet to meet anyone who doesn’t have a myriad of activities, events, meetings, parties, and responsibilities on their plate each and every day. This busy lifestyle sometimes means that a healthy diet and exercise routine slips – maybe you eat out more than you would like, run less than you should, and have one too many soft drinks a week. Eating enough fruits and vegetables can be difficult – especially since the departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services just upped the new daily serving amount of fruits and vegetables to nine servings a day. That amounts to 2 1/2 cups of vegetables, and 2 cups of fruit. How exactly are we all supposed to integrate that many fruits and veggies into our diet every day?

Smoothies: An Excellent
Vegetable and Fruit Source

One of the best ways to get your daily dose of both veggies and fruit is to start your day off with a smoothie for breakfast. Because you can condense so many types of vegetables and fruits into one smoothie, it is an excellent way to get the vitamins, oils, and other nutrients necessary for a healthy life. Here are some reasons smoothies are healthy:


Healthy Fats

Despite the past demonization of fat, it is important to understand that we all need fat in our lives to be healthy. Fat is what our body burns for energy, and it is necessary for many biological functions. There are good fats and there are bad fats, so you need to know the difference between the two. The addition of coconut oil, avocados, egg yolks, and other foods with high levels of healthy fat to your smoothie will help you feel full for longer, and give you energy throughout the day.


Vitamin A

Spinach, mango, kale, and cantaloupe are all excellent sources of Vitamin A. This vitamin plays an important role our health: as an antioxidant it keeps our immune system fortified, promotes eye health, and helps aid bone growth. (Source)


Vitamin C

Kiwi, guavas, strawberries, pomegranates, oranges, papaya, and avocado are all high in Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron, as well as promoting the healing and health of connective tissues, your bones, and your skin. (Source)



Most people in the U.S. don’t get enough fiber every day. Fiber is essential for many different reasons – it is crucial for proper digestion, and skin health, and also helps weight management and blood sugar control. Add chia seeds, flax seeds, pears, or raspberries and blackberries to your smooth for a fiber boost! (Source)

Antioxidant rich breakfast including shilajit

Antioxidants. We hear about them all the time, but it’s difficult to pinpoint what they are, why they’re good for you, and the best way to integrate them into your diet.

Here at Premium Shilajit, we understand just how beneficial antioxidants really are, because – you guessed it – shilajit is one of the best sources of antioxidants out there! Let’s take a closer look at the importance of antioxidants, and why eating them for breakfast is a great way to integrate them into your diet.

What are Antioxidants?

In order to truly understand antioxidants, you need to understand something called “free radicals.” Every day, your body’s cells are exposed to oxygen. Now, we all know that oxygen is essential of life, but when your cells are exposed to oxygen, it causes something called oxidation. Oxidation causes your body to alter its chemistry, resulting in free radicals. Free radicals are partly responsible for the aging process, as well as contributing to diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and many other illnesses. Environmental factors such as smoking cigarettes, diet, alcohol, and pollution all contribute to the creation of free radicals.

How do we fight free-radicals? Antioxidants to the rescue!

Now that we’ve illustrated just how bad free radicals are, we can move on to the best way to fight them. Antioxidants fight the damage created by free radicals. It can limit and even stop the damage! Put simply, your body uses antioxidants to fight free radicals and keep your body healthy. Antioxidants work to keep your cells from degenerating and fight the damage caused by oxidation.

Shilajti is full of fluvial acid, which is a powerful antioxidant.

This is much higher than blueberries and many other types of fruit. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t continue to eat the foods below: integrating many different types of antioxidants and vitamins into your diet is beneficial to your health.



Grapes are an excellent source of antioxidants. For the best results, choose grapes that are dark in color, such as blue, red, or purple, as these content the highest levels of antioxidants. In addition to phytochemical (antioxidants), grapes also contain lots of vitamin C!



Blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants. In addition, blueberries also contain minerals and vitamins that have been proven to strengthen your immune system and lower inflammation. They are full of phytochemical that fight the damage caused by free radicals.

How to Eat an Antioxidant-Rich Breakfast

There are many ways to integrate all these powerful antioxidant rich foods into your diet. One of the best ways to insure you are getting lots of phytochemicals into your diet is by starting the day off with a good dose. Eating a good breakfast is a great way to start. You know how fitness gurus always say you should exercise first thing in the morning to make sure you get it done? The same goes for integrating antioxidants into your diet – if you eat them at breakfast, you’re starting your day off right. Here are a few ways to start eating antioxidants for breakfast:

Shilajit is best taken on an empty stomach, so drink it before you eat breakfast. Because shilajit is most potent and pure in resin form, it is best taken dissolved in liquid, such as milk, tea, or non-chlorinated water. Dissolve your recommended dose in a war liquid (the hotter the liquid, the bette it will dissolve), and stir rapidly. Then, drink up and start enjoying the benefits of shilajit in your life and health.

Make a delicious smoothie and eat 2 antioxidant-rich foods in one meal. Blend spinach, blueberries, and bananas together with your liquid of choice (coconut almond milk is our favorite, but you can use milk, soy milk, or any other kind of dairy). If you want an icy smoothie, freeze the blueberries beforehand, or add in a handful of ice!

Layer yogurt with grapes, blueberries, your favorite type of granola, and some nuts. We love walnuts or toasted almonds, but choose your favorite and enjoy a well-rounded breakfast!
