Shilajit side effects may be indicative of a low-quality shilajit or something that claims to be shilajit but is not really so. Due to the growing popularity of shilajit resin, more and more shilajit sellers appear on the market. Unfortunately, not all of them are very honest and trustworthy people. That is why many shilajit supplements on the market aren’t exactly what they’re reported to be. Some of these contain fertilizer. That is why before making a purchase from any shilajit supplier, please make sure that they have the following documents:
- Product Liability Insurance (provides buyer protection against health injury)
- A Certificate of Analysis(confirms that a product meets USA specifications)
- USA Seller’s Permit (state license)
Be sure you’re getting the right stuff.
Shilajit Side Effects:
If shilajit is used in the right way and dosage, it is not associated with any serious side effects. In cases where someone takes iron supplements along with shilajit, it could lead to the building up of excess iron in the blood, as Shilajit contains a pretty high amount of iron. In very rare cases, it could aggravate gout or lower blood pressure. But apart from those three cases, shilajit is perfectly safe even in higher than normal quantities. Another possible shilajit side effect: Fulvic acid side effects may similarly occur if taken in an isolated form, as it’s not in the same arrangement that a real shilajit will be in.
Of course, it’s always best to talk to your physician about any shilajit side effects before taking it, especially in cases where you already take prescribed drugs.
The only shilajit side effect can be when you take a very high dose, Shilajit might increase uric acid levels which in turn can lead to increased bile levels resulting in more problems. However, this happens only when a very large dose is administrated.
However, it’s always a good idea to listen to your body and stop taking shilajit if you notice symptoms of an allergic reaction, which may include nausea, dizziness, increased heart rate, itchiness, etc. Keep in mind that this counts for everything we ingest and there were no reported cases of severe allergic reactions to shilajit so it could be another shilajit side effect.
