There is an educated attempt to find naturally available dietary supplements and it turns out the answer was always Ayurveda and vegan foods.
Shilajatu (also called mimie, salajit, or shilajit) is a natural consumable product, commonly found in the Himalayas. It is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine as a dietary supplement.
What is shilajit and why it is so rare
Micro-organisms and the action of temperature, pressure, and climate cause a gradual decomposition of dead organic matter. This can go on as long as possible and the matter takes different forms throughout time. In the Himalayas, shilajit is formed by the decomposition of dead plants, over many centuries, according to researchers.
Commonly extracted from Baltistan, shilajit can be sold as a resin or powder. A reason for its priceless qualities is the significant concentration of fulvic acid (mostly found in humus and similar to humic acids). Other compounds include resins, latex, gum, sterols, and others that are commonly found in natural substances. Barium (Ba), Magnesium (Mg), and Sodium (Na) have the highest concentration concerning the element concentration of Himalayan shilajit.
How does shilajit profit you?
It has anti-inflammatory properties and is known to have antimicrobial properties too. Along with this, it can enhance or boost your immune system. It is commonly taken as a health supplement all over the north of India as well as Nepal. Considering its safety and effects, even children take it with milk. The Sherpas (mountainous natives of Nepal) incorporate Himalayan shilajit in their diet, attributing it to their strength and a comparatively longer life span.
