    Shilajit - The Destroyer of Weakness. A powerful Rejuvenation (Rasayana)
    Have you heard of Shilajt (Shilajatu, Shilajeet) before?

    Shilajjt literally means “destroyer of weakness” and is the natural exudate from the rocks in the Himalayas. Its high mineral content oozes out of the rock in the heat of summer ☀️

    The Ayurvedic textbook Sushruta Samhita states “a gelatinous substance that is secreted from the side of the mountains when they have become heated by the rays of the sun in the months of May – July.”

    Its Ayurvedic properties include:
      • Rasa (taste)- pungent and bitter, salty and astringent
      • Virya (energy) – heating.
      • Vipaka (post digestive taste) – pungent.

    It balances all the three doshas but is pitta aggravating when used in excess.

    It nourishes and strengthens all our seven bodily tissues (dhatus). To read more about the dhatus see the link below.

    Ayurvedic actions of Shilajeet:

      • Rasayana – Rejuvenation.
      • Vajikarana – enhances sexual potency, fertility, virility, increases testosterone level, increases sperm count (see link for the study below).
      • Medohara – good for weight control.
      • Sandhaniya – helpful in healing broken bones.
      • Increases Ojas.

    Main Indications:

    1. Diabetes.

    2. Iron deficiency.

    3. Anti-ageing.

    4. Promotes intellect, some research shows that it may prevent or slow the progression of Alzheimers.

    5. Chronic fatigue. CFS has been associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. This occurs when your cells don’t produce enough energy. Based on these results, naturally boosting your body’s mitochondrial function with shilajit supplements may help improve energy levels.

    6. Used to treat arthritic conditions especially in rheumatoid arthritis (amavata) and Osteoarthritis (sandhigata Vata).

    Shilajit is best taken in hot milk but should not be used without a prescription from an Ayurvedic Practitioner.
