Shilajit is a sticky substance found primarily in the rocks of the Himalayas. It develops over centuries from the slow decomposition of plants. The ancient traditional literature attributes many health benefits of Shilajit. It’s an effective and safe supplement that can have a positive effect on overall health and well-being. Shilajit contains fulvic acid and more than 84 minerals so it offers numerous health benefits. It can function as an antioxidant to improve body’s immunity and memory, an anti-inflammatory, an energy booster, and a diuretic to remove excess fluid from the body. Because of these benefits, shilajit is thought to help counteract many symptoms associated with higher altitudes. Iron deficiency (anaemia) can result from a low-iron diet, blood loss, or an inability to absorb iron. Shilajit supplements, however, may gradually increase iron levels.
