Shilajit (Mumiyo); a powerful rejuvenation and immune support

Shilajit is a Sanskrit word meaning “rock-invincible.” It is also spelt “Shilajeet,” and “Salajeet(سلاجیت)” in Urdu and is known by various other names, such as Shilajita Mumiyo, mineral pitch or mineral wax in English, black asphaltum, Asphaltum punjabianum in Latin, Barahshin, Dorobi, Baraga Shun, Chao-tong, Wu Ling Zhi en Brag-Shun. Shilajit is commonly called Shilajitu in Ayurveda. Shilajit is a rasayana material and is an adaptogen, due to its proven ability to increase resistance and support the adaptation of the body and its inner workings to a variety of chemical, biological, and physical stress.

Shilajit is a blackish-brown semisolid mass, mainly consisting of a mixture of low molecular weight organic compounds and paleohumus, naturally exuding from steep rocks in many mountain ranges especially in Himalayan and Hindukush ranges of Indian Subcontinent. Today, Shilajit is understood to be a remnant of vegetational fossils that has undergone a high amount of metamorphosis due to temperature, moisture and the pressure of the earth.

The Himalayan mountains are understood to have been formed from the collision of the Sub-Asian and Indian continents about 50 million years ago. During the collision dense vegetation comprising entire rain forests are understood to have been trapped under millions of tons of pressure, which slowly changed this vegetation into a rich bioactive material, called Shilajit. Thus Shilajit represents originality of ancient vegetation and purity of non-exposure to any harmful fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide and other pollutants.

Method of purification: Raw shilajit as shown in the picture is first dissolved in water. It is given Bhavana (treatments) for one entire day with herbs decoction (Triphala and Bhringraaj Swaras). When the dust particles settle in bottom, the solution is filtered in other vessel with the help of muslin cloth. After filtrations, the solution is boiled in slow heat and by drying water and herbs decoction, pure Shilajit is collected and used in making various forms such as paste, capsules or powder.

Nepal Shilajit (Mumiyo) is purified following traditional Ayurveda method; we do not use organic solvent to purify, we use only pure water and herbal decoction.

Shilajit is found in Nepal and also in few other countries  but the source of the highest quality Shilajit (Mumiyo) is considered to be of Nepal Himalayas where the people are involved in collection, purification and use of Shilajit from time immemorial
