What is shilajit? What are its many benefits? Is shilajit safe? If you are asking yourself any of these questions you are in the right place. We seek to share shilajit’s rich history as well as what modern science has to say about it.

What is shilajit in traditional wellness?
Shilajit is a Sanskrit word meaning “rock-invincible”, “conqueror of mountains”, or “destroyer of weakness”. Shilajit is a nutritional supplement that has been ascribed a number of beneficial activities. It has been used for centuries as a rejuvenation compound. Ancient texts refer to shilajit as the “elixir of evergreen life”. In the traditional Indian system of medicine, Ayurveda, shilajit is considered to be a Rasayana (rejuvenator) herb as well as an adaptogen, or a natural herb that increases the body’s natural resistance to stress. It has traditionally been used by many Ayurvedic practitioners as a catalyst to boost the strength of other herbal supplements. The high-altitude Himalayan variety is famed for its quality and potency.

What does modern research say about shilajit?

Modern scientific research has systematically validated a number of properties of shilajit. Analysis has shown it to consist of a complex mixture of organic humic substances and plant and microbial metabolites occurring in the rock rhizospheres of its natural habitat. The natural phytocomplex known as shilajit also possesses anti-oxidant properties (Ghosal et al., 1995; Bhattacharya et al., 1995).

The biological effects of shilajit have been ascribed to two distinct classes of compounds. The low molecular weight bioactive organic compounds, such as oxygenated dibenzo-α-pyrones, act as the active substances, and medium molecular weight fulvic and humic acids act as carrier molecules for in vivo transportation of these bioactive molecules (Agarwal, Aqil, & Anwer, 2007; Agarwal, Khanna, Karmarkar, Anwer, & Khar, 2007).

Fulvic acid and humic acid have a microporous structure. Fulvic and humic acid are thus capable of forming complexes with nonpolar solutes and molecules with low bioavailability (Agarwal, Khanna, Karmarkar, Anwer, & Khar, in press). These molecules can be entrapped in the void so as to increase their solubility and dissolution rate, thereby enhancing their bioavailability (Ghosal, 2003; Khanna, 2006)

Our Tests

We test each and every batch of shilajit at an American, FDA registered, cGMP certified, independent, third party laboratory here in California. Our specifications for testing are California Prop 65 standards which are the most rigid and strict regulations in the world for naturally occurring heavy metals. In fact, California Prop 65 limits are so tough that fruits, vegetables and drinking water were made exempt from testing because they cannot possibly pass.

For example, Spinach contains approximately 5 micrograms (mcg) of lead in an average serving which is is about 10 times the levels allowed by Prop 65. Green beans, on average, contain approximately 28 mcg of lead in a 1 cup serving, which is about 50 times the levels allowed by Prop 65.

The FDA’s publication Total Diet Study Statistics on Element Results (December 11, 2007), which analyzes 200 foods found in grocery stores four times per year, showed the following examples of lead content at 4 oz serving sizes: Mixed nuts 10.2 mcg, Brussel Sprouts 7.9 mcg, Sweet Potato 7.2 mcg, Avocado 4.5 mcg, Cucumber 3.4 mcg, Granola 3.0 mcg.

The FDA limit for lead exposure of non-child-bearing adults is 75 micrograms per day.

In our most recent tests (December 2017), our shilajit showed minute trace levels of 0.065 micrograms of lead per 500mg serving. Our recommended serving size is 100mg to 300mg.
