Shilajeet (Sanskrit: शिलाजतु, Shilajatu) is a thick, sticky dark brown substance found predominantly in Himalaya and Tibet mountains.
Shilajeet is a unique and natural mixture of 26 micro element, 10 metallic oxides, 6 amino acids, ethereal oils and other biologically active substances.
Main active ingredient of Shilajeet is Fulvic acid.
Shilajeet alone has been shown to activate, stabilize and revitalize CoQ10, making it more available to boost mitochondrial energy production.
Stress and aging decrease levels of acetylcholine, and shilajeet has been found to inhibit the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine.
Shilajeet increases production of male hormone, Testosterone, which improves male sexual performance.
Retinol, Vitamin B and Copper are necessary for each step in the healing process. When they are combined with Fulvic Acid, inflammation is reduced and the formation of new tissue is enhanced.
Shilajeet provides natural calcium and magnesium which relieves joint inflammation and pain.
Shilajeet has plenty of iron, which plays a major role in transporting oxygen in our body. Potassium balances the negative effect of salt intake, and reduces cholesterol. Together with calcium, they regulate the heartbeat.
Vitamin B12 is another well-known energy booster that is also part of shilajeet. Fulvic Acid and B12 both have the ability to deliver oxygen directly to the muscle cells.
Copper supports neurodevelopment and improves cognitive function. vitamin B are a very popular brain supplement that is also found in shilajeet.
Manganese slows down the aging of the skin and the development of wrinkles. It also improves the tensile strength and elasticity of the skin. Organic selenium and zinc have a general role in normal skin development and function. They protect skin from UV radiation, providing a safe and effective means to reduce UVR exposure.
Fulvic Acid itself plays its role as a very powerful antioxidant reducing the damage incurred by free radicals that enter your body through the food and the environment. Finally, the carotenoids retinol and terpenoids plus Vitamin E can also act as antioxidants. All of these make Shilajeet at most powerful organic substance that may prevent or delay cell damage from oxidation.
