Shilajit is a blackish-brown substance that exudes from rocks in the Himalayan Mountains which span several countries. It has a tar-like consistency and oozes from cracks in rocks in hot weather. In ayurvedic tradition, this herbal/mineral compound is considered a rasayana. It is a powerful mineral-rich supplement that can fill in gaps in your nutrition.
According to the Charaka Samhita, a foundational book of Ayurvedic lore, ” There is no curable disease in the universe that cannot be cured by Shilajit.” The ancient Vedic text Rig Veda also spoke of an elixir called soma which came from rocks in the mountains. Soma was a mythical aid in the hunt for immortality sought by alchemists.
In traditional ayurvedic or Indian medicine it has been used to enhance virility (along with Ashwaghanda) and to aid a variety of other conditions such as diabetes, ulcers, anemia, asthma, heart disease, epilepsy, and arthritis.
It was apparently rediscovered by observations by Himalayan villagers of monkeys chewing the substance that had flowed from between layers of rock. The villagers attributed the monkeys’ strength, vitality, longevity to the shilajit and began using it themselves. They reported many improvements in their health as a result.
