Before one can truly understand and appreciate the benefits of Shilajit (Fulvic Acid), it pays to know what exactly it is.
Shilajit also referred to as mineral pitch, is created in a long process that involves breaking down minerals and plant matter. Shilajit is a tar-like sticky back substance which comes from solid rocks and is often found in high mountain ranges. Shilajit was sourced traditionally in Tibet and India although it is now manufactured in many other countries in the world.
Shilajit has been used in ancient Ayurvedic medicine for many years now and has proven to be very beneficial for numerous conditions.
Fulvic Acid, on the other hand, is an essential and naturally occurring organic acid often found in nutrition-rich humus. This is the decomposed matter which forms a layer in the Earth’s crust. This can be challenging to obtain from healthy diets and but is commonly gathered from the Shilajit, a known mineral pitch seeping out of rocks in high altitudes. Fulvic Acid also acts as an indispensable tool that carries vitamins and nutrients to proper places in the human body.
Benefits of shilajit for health are as follows:
