Shilajit is a black pasty resin, exceptionally concentrated in minerals, which exudes from cracks in the rocks of mountains at high elevation during the warmer months. Shilajit is mainly found in the Himalayas but also in Russian, European and Andean mountains. Scientists now speculate that it is created over centuries from the decomposition of resin and latex bearing plants under the action of specific microorganisms. Shilajit needs to be purified in order for it to be a safe and effective remedy.

The best Shilajit: origin and preparation
Found in several different geographical areas on the planet, it is said that the most potent Shilajit is found in the high Himalayas of Nepal around altitudes of 4000 meters. Four different kinds of Shilajit exist (red, white, blue and black), the best for medicinal purposes being traditionally the black variety, coming from Iron rich rocks.
Preparation process of Shilajit
