Shilajit: Rejuvenating Tonic

Shilajit is considered one of the wonder herbs of Ayurveda. Neither a plant nor animal substance, it is a mineral pitch that oozes from the rocks of the Himalayas, as they become warm in the summer months. It is said to carry the healing power of these great mountains. Shilajit is an important herb of the ancient Hindu scholars and has been cited in the early Ayurvedic writings from the Charaka Samhita and Sushrut Samhita as a cure for many health problems. It is composed of humus and organic plant material that has been compressed by layers of rock mixed with microbial metabolites.

Each vegetarian capsule contains 600mg Shilajit Mineral Pitch (Asphalt). See label for more details.

It is generally thought to be Tri-Doshic and only aggravating to Pitta (Fire) when used in excess. In Sanskrit, shilajit means 'winner of rock'.
