The goodness of the Himalayas condensed over centuries. Shilajit is found in the foothills of the highest range in the world, formed by the breakdown of mountain vegetation and often used in ayurvedic practice for rejuvenation and anti-aging. This substance, both airy and earthy, is a potent, safe dietary supplement whose disease-preventing properties have been considered by various medical journals, including the International Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
Shilajit is one of those ingredients modern clinical studies and ancient ayurvedic practice agree on. One medical review noted, for example, that it is “a very safe dietary supplement,” and that it is “potentially able to prevent several diseases.” Traditionally, shilajit was used in ayurvedic medicine as a maharasa (super-vitalizer) to increase physical strength and to promote human health. But as one clinical study pointed out, “The health benefits of shilajit have been shown to differ from region to region, depending on the place from which it was extracted.” We wanted to find the most potent form of the herb available, and scoured the globe to do so.
Shilajit contains fulvic acids and more than 40 minerals. It can improve reproductive system challenges, inflammation and allergic reactions. The amino acids found in shilajit, and specially in the concentrations of fulvic acid present in this botanical, are known for their strong antioxidant properties. One recent clinical study has shown that fulvic acid can protect against certain types of inflammation, and another study published in 2020 found that fulvic acid is extremely safe even at high doses.
Shilajit can improve metabolism, cognitive activities, and physical strength. One study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition demonstrated that eight weeks of high-dose shilajit supplementation “promoted the retention of maximal muscular strength.”
Recent studies have also reported that supplementation with a purified, organic form of shilajit improved mitochondrial function and increased free testosterone as well as total testosterone. Yet another study found an increase in collagen expression with shilajit supplementation. All of these studies specifically looked at the organic shilajit brand Nariveda uses in this supplement. Additionally, the botanical improves appetite and sleep, and helps quick restoration of damaged systems and organs, whether after surgery or a difficult workout.
