About 50 millions of years ago, the Indian continent collided with Asia, forming mountainous regions of Himalayas that trapped plants and organic matter by layers of rock. The pressure from the weight of the mountains and the extreme temperature changes transformed the plants into a rich mineral mass that flows out of the rocks Known as “Shilajit“
Yes, Himalayan Shilajit is formed over centuries from the slow decomposition of plants. It is a sticky black colored and sometimes dark brown colored substance which is found primarily in the rocks of Himalayan mountain range from where it is extracted for the use. Shilajit is a nutrient-rich biomass containing over 85 minerals and trace elements the human body needs to function optimally and it has humic and fulvic acid which helps the body absorb these minerals at a cellular level. In fact this supplement has numerous health benefits and it is consumed for the overall health and well-being.
However one must keep into consideration that the quality of shilajit is very important. Here at ‘Natural Herbs Shop’ we care about the purity of Shilajit that is why we monitor the purification techniques used.
There are in fact four different qualities of shilajit. Only the highest grade (Gold Grade) has all the major benefits to the human health. When any of the four grades of shilajit are purified the result will be a black tar like resin. In order to select the highest grade, one must first see the color and type of rock the shilajit is found in before it is purified. The most effective Shilajit comes from the highest points of the Himalayas, approximately 16,000 – 18,000 feet above sea-level, which is where we at ‘Natural Herbs Shop’ source our Shilajit.
We deal directly with the indigenous people who have been hand collecting shilajit for centuries and we have our own workers operating there with them, that is how we provide the highest grade shilajit. Our customers’ trust in us is why our pursuit is the quality. As a reward, our customers keep on coming back to us.
