Shilajit is known since long time in ayurvedic medicine. It is a sticky substance found primarily in the rocks of the Himalayas. It develops over centuries from the slow decomposition of plants.
Shilajit is an effective and safe supplement that has health benefits, which we will explain in this article.
Some researchers believe Shilajit may prevent or slow the progression of Alzheimer’s.
Shilajit contains an antioxidant known as fulvic acid that may reduce inflammation, potentially improving Alzheimer’s symptoms.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
It is a long-term condition that causes extreme tiredness or fatigue. It can make it difficult to do simple everyday activities, Shilajit supplements may reduce symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and restore energy.
Shilajit is rich in fulvic acid that is a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It may also protect against free radicals, cellular damage and slow aging process.
Shilajit supplements may gradually increase iron levels in iron deficiency anemia.
Shilajit as a dietary supplement may also improve heart health, but it is not recommended for those who have active heart disease.
How to take Shilajit
Shilajit is available in liquid and powder forms. The liquid form should be dissolved in liquid and taken one to three times a day (depending on instructions). In case of Shilajit powder, it is taken twice a day with milk. The recommended dose of Shilajit is 300 – 500 mg daily.
