Shilajit Defined

Shilajit is a blackish-brown substance that seeps out of rocks found at altitudes of 1000-5000m, most notably found in the Himalayan and Hindukush mountain ranges. [1,2] A mixture of humic acids — principal components of the humic substances which are major organic constituents of humus, peat, and coal — make up to 85% of Shilajit by weight. The main bioactive component in Shilajit being fulvic acid. [1,5] It has Ayurveda therapeutic history as a substance taken for its adaptogenic properties and also to enhance vitality. [3] Perhaps owing to these uses, the word Shilajit translated from Sanskrit means “conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness.” [4]
