How to use Himalayan Shilajit?
Pure Shilajit has a fresh organic earthy smell. The smell of Shilajit is pleasant though it’s strong.
2. Texture and colour
Shilajit is a black/brown tar-like substance! Shilajit has a red wine like shade in light when it is dissolved in water. We send our Shilajit in resin form as it is sun-dried! Most cooked Shilajit is hard just like a rock and difficult to scoop.
Shilajit is soluble in water if it is mixed well! It never dissolves in 100% alcohol or in any oil.
It’s very simple to check if your Shilajit is well purified or not. Simply put very small amount of Shilajit in between your front teeth and press. If there is any grit or sand, it means your Shilajit isn’t well purified. This is the easiest way to check the purification of Shilajit. Pure Shilajit never catches any flame. If it is exposed to fire directly, it becomes ash.
Important to know
What is shilajit?
As we grow, our body cells get weaker and start being deficient of different elements and we begin to lose health and show up ageing signs. Even if we start eating healthy food, we are not able to absorb the vitamins from food. It is, in fact, the essential minerals that help our body to absorb the nutrients and vitamins from the food. Unfortunately, these minerals cannot be obtained from food alone. However, pure Shilajit resin has rich amount of natural minerals, micro-nutrients, Humic, and Fulvic acid as it is obtained from plant residues that have deep roots, formed by mountains crushing together vegetation billions of years old, it comes out as a thick resin, formed at altitudes above 17000 feet; hand collected, a very dangerous job.
In order to acquire the highest quality Shilajit resin, the purification techniques used must not only remove impurities and other contaminations, it must also not change its original composition – it is mandatory to preserve its actual mineral essence. Modern technological methods often negotiate the quality to produce faster. Authentic natural shilajit-making is a slow process that requires a lot of patience and time which commercial producers don’t have. We prepare shilajit, under the strictest organic standards to preserve its original composition and organic nature.
Shilajit decontamination process
Raw shilajit is dissolved in water to remove all the dirt, grit and dust from it. The water is steamed to decontaminate shilajit from possible soil bacteria or spores. It takes days to settle the grit and other residues at the bottom. Though shilajit at these heights and locality possess less chances of heavy metals or other contamination due to the pristine nature of these mountains – there is a myth-related to impurities such as pollutants, fertilisers or chemicals causing heavy metal contamination. We yet run a double safety confirmation. We use natural and fresh Moringa seeds to purify our shilajit from any possible heavy metals. Moringa seeds according to the international scientific research can remove heavy metals from liquid without changing its natural taste or properties. This method is used in India to clean drinking water at city water supply heads. It’s important to perform this step very carefully. But this isn’t enough to purify the Shilajit.
Shilajit filtration process
Next step is to pass the shilajit from the filters. Filtration is a repetitive process. We use multiple filters to perform this step. It is a known fact that majority of shilajit in the market is not purified and filtered properly. To check the basic purification of the shilajit, simply put a very little amount of shilajit in your front teeth and press. You will notice grit if your shilajit is not purified properly. A well filtered shilajit is very fine smooth and has a strong smell and taste.
Sun-drying - why is it important?
Once purified, we must now separate the shilajit from the water to have it in solid/semi-liquid form. The shilajit filtrate is SUN-DRIED, endeavours to preserve its fundamental nature. Almost 99% vendors boil shilajit as it is fast and inexpensive way to make resin from the shilajit filtrate. Boiling greatly compromises its quality and kills the shilajit spirit. Constant exposure of heat is unnatural to shilajit which belongs to cold mountainous regions. We at Himalayan Shilajit™ dry the Shilajit filtrate in the Sun for 3-4 weeks below 40°c till it becomes the resin. This way we are able to preserve its natural properties and retain its true essence and soul.
Shilajit quality factors
Shilajit superiority differs on the basis of micro-nutrients and 'mineral count'. There are three factors that bring out the shilajit quality – its origin of existence, sourcing height, and the purification techniques. Even the leading shilajit selling companies 'compromise' on shilajit quality, using modern methods in order to produce fast and fill it with energy fillers to create quick effects. Shilajit is the best and most effective when it is original and not modified. Himalayan Shilajit is natural and organic without rushing to shortcut ways – we are the only team in the world that personally extracts shilajit from the world’s highest Shilajit source – Gilgit Baltistan, rather than to rely on third-party extractors who may not always be reliable of quality. We process shilajit independently and brings you the Fresh, Organic, Sun-Dried, Safe & Pure Shilajit – directly from the source!
Geographical impact on shilajit
The richest and the purest raw Himalayan Shilajit is found in Gilgit Baltistan due to several factors: its highest altitude and exceptional geographical features. It is the place where the greatest mountain ranges meet – The Himalayas and The Karakoram – bringing together the unique combination of mineralogy from a variety of vegetation and rock types. This area also has less climate change & sea level effect. It is the region of world’s fasted increasing gradient. The fastest steepest earth slope brings legendary properties. It is luxuriant in minerals, the humus is full of various vegetation resulting from mixing of different soil types and the micro action. The shilajit rock in order to stand and be firm in place is more rigid and strongly bound to its immediate surrounds – this helps it to have the highest amount of natural Fulvic Acid obtained from plant residues that have deeper roots in soil – much deeper than in lower gradient altitudes. Here, shilajit is extremely pure because the environment in these sky-touching mountains is very pristine & clean – free from pollutants, fertilisers and any kind of chemicals making the shilajit rock untainted, the most potent and highly effective. We personally source our shilajit from these regions from heights above 17000ft. Shilajit from Gilgit Baltistan is the pure shilajit. It is limited at times due to production hindrance in challenging weather and altitude.
How to find authentic & mineral enriched shilajit?
Shilajit is found in different parts of the world, not all have the same amount of natural minerals, vitamins, and other important elements. Because it is easily available almost everywhere, it is important to make a well-informed choice in order to avoid any health risks. The market today is full of sellers offering shilajit from all regions, ranging from the Altai Mountains to lower Himalayas, and even up to the sky-touching highest Himalayas where from where we source our shilajit. Shilajit exists at altitudes ranging from 6,500ft up to 18,000ft respectively. The higher you go, the environment gets purer and so does the shilajit. It also becomes even more rare to find. Therefore, for the best shilajit resin formation, the raw shilajit rock must be extremely wealthy in itself and the purified resin must not have any sort of soil or heavy metal contamination in it.
Does shilajit have contamination or side-effects other than health benefits?
Pure shilajit has great health benefits and no known side effects as it is a natural supplement. Contamination may occur mostly in shilajit extracted from lower altitudes, mainly due to the effects of urbanisation, the use of chemicals and fertilisers and even the transportation related hazardous smoke that penetrates into the earth and even into the shilajit rocks. At very high altitudes sources such as the highest Himalayas of Gilgit Baltistan, where we source our Shilajit from, there are no such risks because of the clean atmosphere and rural lifestyle protect these environments. People in the surroundings of these sky-touching Himalayas use animal transport and walk miles every day and live an eco-friendly self-sustainable life. It is hence important to choose shilajit from the best source and altitude. It is yet extremely important to have a well purified shilajit to get full benefits and the one which is lab tested to ensure a healthy consumption.
Is Himalayan Shilajit™ clean & safe from heavy metals?
Yes! Our Himalayan Shilajit does not contain any heavy metals or any other food contamination. Himalayan Shilajit is 100% food safe and healthy. It is rated as A+ shilajit from the sample we tested by Clean Food Experts that in globally specialized labs, such as 'CWC' in USA and 'ALS' in Australia that deal with Food and Contamination Testing.
