In the ancient Indian language Sanskrit, Shilajit means "conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness." A hefty title to live up to perhaps, but there are Ayurvedic experts who believe that this mineral extract does just that. Practiced in India for more than 5,000 years, Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that utilizes natural herbs, extracts, and oils to heal the body from the inside out.
Shilajit is just one of many extracts available in this practice, but it is perhaps one of the most viable and extensively used. Much credit is given to this mineral for a variety of uses and benefits. Found deep in the Himalayan region of the world, Shilajit is formed on rocks during hot weather periods. It is essentially a thick paste that oozes from rocks, created by plant matter more than tens of thousands of years old at times.
The body doesn't create minerals on its own; you must obtain them through your diet. However, research has shown that most people are deficient in more than 84 minerals that can improve longevity and overall health, but it is impossible to eat enough food to gain them all. The Shilajit extract is known for supplying the body with vital minerals that help maintain a healthy immune system.
