FAQ

What is Natural Shilajit Resin?

It is a naturally-occurring substance found in the mountains in Altai. Shilajit is a product of gradual, microbial decomposition of some plants over centuries. It is a well-known exogenous supplement used to support physical strength and overall well-being. This natural resin has been used in Ayurvedic practices for its potential benefits.

It is a good source of fulvic acid and humic acid. These two compounds are of interest to researchers due to their unique properties.

How is Natural Shilajit Resin purified and extracted?

We follow the traditional Ayurvedic method of purification – raw Shilajit is washed thoroughly in water and then filtered to remove water-insoluble impurities. The filtrate is heated under direct sunlight to concentrate it. The creamy layer formed during heating is skimmed 3-4 times to obtain pure natural Shilajit.

This process helps bring out the most bioactive components of Shilajit resin. Proper extraction is important to ensure a consistent high concentration of active ingredients.

Yes, there are different types: the potency and purity of Shilajit resin depend upon the altitude and location it is collected from, the methods of purification used, and the quality of the natural Shilajit.

How to test if Shilajit resin pure and authentic?

Nowadays, there are laboratories that can standardize and check the various compositions of Shilajit from one batch to the other. Research has shown that the composition of Shilajit resin sourced from different mountain ranges produces some certain similar compounds. The exact amount is determined by the flora in and around the mountain ranges from which the resin is collected. However, fulvic acid, humic acids and other bioactive molecules are commonly found in Shilajit and their actual quantities can be determined. Classically, some certain methods of checking the purity of Shilajit are explained in Ayurvedic literature.

  • If a little pure Shilajit is put on a charcoal ember, it takes an elongated oval shape or the shape of a linga.
  • Pure Shilajit won’t smoke when put on a hot charcoal ember.
  • When in water, a grain of Shilajit will dissolve completely and sediment at the bottom.
  • Pure Shilajit possesses a characteristic smell like that of cow’s urine. While it is like resin or can be hard, Shilajit softens when you rub a small portion between your fingertips. It is smooth to touch and lightweight.
