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.
Raw Shilajit or Mumio is what is sold in Russia,Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and the Altai Mountains bordering Kazakhstan. This material is sold as mumijo (spelled many different ways) and is rarely, perhaps never, processed according to Ayurvedic methods. The claim is often made that it is superior to Indian Shilajit, but one should always be cautious of what is written by professional advertising agents and their clients. It has been found to speed the healing of fractures and there is quite a bit of evidence that it is an adaptogen that improves endurance and athletic performance. Nepal Shilajit follows AYURVEDA scripture for the purification and also people in Nepal are involved in collection, purification and use of Shilajit from time immemorial. 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. Memory and cognition, Immune system modulator, Anti-ulcer, Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant. Through these actions Shilajit can have positive effects on many different health problems.
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. They began to consume it themselves and reported a broad spectrum of improvements in health. It seemed to give them more energy, relieve digestive problems, Increase sex drive, improve memory and cognition, improve diabetes, reduce allergies, improve the quality and quantity of life and it seemed to cure all diseases.
Shilajit literally means “winner of Rocks”. It is also interpreted as the “Destroyer of Weakness and the Builder of Strength”. 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.
