10 Reasons why Asphaltum(Shilajit) is such a Boon for Human Health!

Asphaltum, well-known as Shilajit, is a renowned ayurvedic supplement used for a wide range of health issues. Shilajit is a mineral exudate and vegetative derivative expressed from the layers of rock in the mountains. In Ayurveda, Shilajit is a famous Rasayan Dravya (which means rejuvenative remedy) and aphrodisiac agent. Shilajit is also known as the “Conqueror of mountains and Destroyer of weakness” in the Sanskrit language. Traditionally this herb has been used to promote:

  • Energy
  • Vitality and Virility
  • Memory
  • Mood
  • Absorption of vital nutrients
  • Cognitive Improvement
  • Normal blood sugar levels
  • Systemic detoxification
  • Optimized Renal functions
  • Healthy Bones

Chemical Constituents of Shilajit

The reason shilajit is so prized in traditional medicine is because of its phytonutrient abundance. It contains Humic substances (HS) like fulvic acid, humic acid, humins, selenium,etc and other metabolites derived from plants, animal wastes, mycobionts or fungi. Fulvic acid is mainly responsible for the therapeutic value of Shilajit.

Shilajit is known for its ability to rejuvenate a cell by pumping oxygen and nutrients into it and supporting the body’s natural antioxidant activity, so that the body can prevent and fight free radical formation. It has been classified as an adaptogen because it helps the body adapt to both internal and external stressors as well as fight physical stress and fatigue. Thus, consuming shilajit may help in cell regeneration, rejuvenation of body tissues and increased cellular energy production contributing to longevity, a slower aging process, and overall better health.

It has also been found to inhibit the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine thus offering valuable support in preserving brain health.
