Shilajit Powder 50g
The Destroyer of Weakness and Conqueror of Mountains
Shilajit is the #1 rated herb in Ayurvedic Medicine. It is highly regarded as the most powerful anti-aging substance known to the people of India.
Shilajit is a sticky, tar-like resin plant matter formed over centuries by the decomposition of plants and the activity of unique microrganisms such as Euphorbia royleana and Trifolium repens. It oozes out of mountainous regions in the summer when it is heated by the sun. It takes centuries to form, and scientists consider it a millenary product of nature. It is no wonder that its Indian Sanskrit word means "rock-invincible". Renowned for its remarkable health benefits, this material has been found to have great detoxification and energy-producing health benefits.
According to legends it is believed to be a nectar of the gods, to be magical or have divine powers. And it has historical use as a Cure-All.
It is certainly a powerful adaptogen and Jing substance.
Another name it has from recent years is “Indian Viagra”. It is said that this can help return the libido to the levels of youthful teenagers.
The great benefits of Shilajit lies in the fact that it contains high amount of fulvic acid.
Fulvic acid has proven to be an extremely powerful organic electrolyte, which balances cell life. This can literally bring life back to dying or disintegrating cells. Fulvic acid has a natural way of chelating heavy metals, turning them into absorbable bio-available forms that allow their removal.

Fulvic acid is one of the main constituents of shilajit that has some amazing benefits.
- Helps move minerals and other nutrients into the tissues that need them
- Free radical scavenger
- Supports the immune system
Most powerful natural electrolyte known, balancing our cells
- Makes Minerals Bioavailable
Once our food supply had a regular amount of fulvic acids, but over the years it has become virtually non-existent. Our shilajit powder contains 51% fulvic acid.
Shiljit also contains Humic Acids
These are known to give you:
- Increased Energy
- Decreased Appetite
- Better Sleep
- Less Pain
- Stress Reduction
The humic acids, extracted from shilajit, were shown to help increase the deliverability of an antiepileptic drug significantly.
Our Shilajit Source
The shilajit powder is sourced at over 10,000 feet in the Himalayan Mountains in Bhutan. It is a combination of gold shilajit (swarna) and copper shilajit (tamra). Its high quality is assured by the testing for dibenzo-alpha-pyrones.
The shilajit rock is combined with the appropriate amount of spring water under a vacuum. It is heated up only to 38 degrees centigrade, the temperature of the body. This is then filtered through cotton cloth to remove dirt. It is cooled down over a long period of time to preserve its crystalline structure.
You can taste the difference!
While the powder is slightly more refined than the pitch or resin it is still of the utmost quality. Those that say that real shilajit can’t be powdered are misinformed.
Shilajit Powder Dosage
The recommended minimum daily dosage is 1 gram per day (which is a little more than 1/2 teaspoon). With a 50-gram bag, this will last you 50 days. The first dose should be taken first thing in the morning and on an empty stomach.
Of course, you can take even more. To combat a disease, in addition to the above you’ll take it 2-3 times per day.
Shilajit taken with any other food or herbs amplifies their potency so feel free to use it more often and in combination with our other herbs. According to Ayurveda, shialjit is the one thing that can be combined with anything, and it only makes it better.
Shilajit Side Effects
Shilajit has been in use for thousands of years in Ayurveda. If it was dangerous it would have fallen in disfavor. If there are side effects they’re more likely caused by ‘fake shilajit’ or improperly processed kinds.
Some research with rats looked at giving them massive doses and found no liver toxicity or excessive iron.
Heavy Metals Toxicity
Superman Herbs' shilajit is California Prop 65 compliant free of lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury.
In 500 batches in the last five years, not in a single batch had lead levels more than 1 PPM.
In fact, shilajit and the fulvic acid it contains seems ideally suited to helping your body to detox heavy metals.
If you know your dosha you can combine shilajit with another substance for best effect.
