Shilajit is mainly collected from serene surroundings of the Western mountains of Nepal at altitudes between 2500-5000 m5. It has also been extracted from similar mountain ranges found in Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, Pakistan, Tibet and Norway at altitudes between 1000 and 5000 m(Tien-Shan, Ural). However, Shilajit found in Nepal is considered as the best and also acquired good reputation in international market for its potency and purity. The Shilajit engorged pristine mountains in Nepal is also acclaimed for a superfluity of highly potential medicinal herbs.

Shilajit found in Nepal matches the description of ancient Ayurvedic text "Charaka".
Raw Shilajit it is dissolved in warm water/Herbal decoction. When the dust particles settle in bottom, the solution is filtered in other vessel with the help of muslin cloth. After filtration, the solution is kept under the sun for drying. After drying for several hours the pure Shilajit is collected and packed in desired sizes for the paste.
The greatest Ayervedic physicians have said “There is no disease on earth which cannot be cured by Shilajit”. This is a very broad statement and recent research has proven that its adaptogenic properties can indeed benefit everyone, however there are certain conditions that it is especially effective for.

Shilajit has been used for thousands of years and for as many different health problems. It is listed as a healing agent in ancient Sanskrit writings and is used today in Ayurvedic health practices. The discovery is said to be made by Himalayan villagers observing large white monkeys migrate to the mountains in the warm summer months. The monkeys were seen to be chewing a semi-soft substance that flowed from between layers of rock. The villagers attributed the monkey’s great strength, longevity and wisdom to the substance.

Shilajit, a special substance, is found in the pristine mountains of Nepal. In the hot summer months, the mineral pitch oozes from cracks and fissures of the rocky Himalayan landscape.
Non humic substancs or Low molecular weight organic compounds - Dibenzo-alpha pyrones, phospholipids, triterpenes and phenolic acids, Humic Substances: humic acid, fulvic acid Minerals or trace elements - silica, iron, antimony, calcium, copper, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybedenum, phosphorous, silica, sodium, strontium, zinc Shilajit contains humic and non-humic substances as its bioactive organic compounds. A study done by S. Goshal shows that humic substances is responsible for the major organic mass (80-85%) of shilajit. Humic substances (HS) are complex mixtures formed during decay of latex and resin bearing plant . HS are generically classified into fulvic and humic acid fractions according to their solubility properties. Humic (HA) and fulvic acids (FA) are metal-organic complexes of soil humus, which contain nitrogen, oxygen and sulphur as heteroelements in their molecules. The medicinal properties of Shilajit are ascribable to non humic substance (oxygenated di-benzo-alpha pyrones), humic substance (fulvic acids) and minerals.
