Shilajit offers a wide range of healing properties for both men and women. It is a truly unique substance used by Eastern and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Sanskrit texts refer to Shilajit as the “conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness.” In its original form, Shilajit, also known as mineral pitch, is a sticky tar-like substance found in high mountains.
Shilajit is created by a natural aging process that appears to break down certain plants. It is principally found in the Himalayas between India and Nepal, although it is also found in Afghanistan, Chile, Russia and Tibet. Over the ages it has been said that Shilajit also enhances the efficacy of any formula taken.
Commonly found minerals found in Shilajit include copper, fulvic and humic acid, iodine, iron, manganese, magnesium, nickel, potassium, silicon, silver, sodium, sulfur and zinc.
Although largely unknown to the public, Shilajit has been studied by various health related organizations:
Another article suggests that, in addition to the above, shilajit can help address a variety of health issues in women. These include: Fertility by helping to regulate the menstrual cycle, increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the reproductive organs, and help clean and detoxify reproductive organs as well. Bone Health by boosting calcium in the bones, as well as boosting enzymes and hormones responsible for bone formation.
So prized was shilajit in ancient times that no major disease was believed to be curable without it. Despite the very ancient history of use of shilajit, very little is really understood about its exact origin.
According to geologists, the Himalayas were formed by the drifting of an island near Australia and the collision of the island with the Asian landmass. Sea shells can be found at very high elevations and the mineral content of shilajit is consistent with what is found in mollusks.
Yet, shilajit is more than minerals. The resinous texture may be due to the presence of mosses and other plant material that maya have contributed to the formation of shilajit. The Ayurvedic forms of shilajit are not consumed raw. Rather, they are purified using traditional processes spelled out in ancient texts.
