Ancient remedies with the use of natural herbs have begun to regain popularity as Science continues to search for the ultimate cures or tools to help man live longer. Modern Science helps today’s man in authenticating the health benefits of herbs and medicines used in the ancient times such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Eastern European Holistic Medicine and Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine.
Since time immemorial, the Mineral Patch Resinor Shilajit, regarded as a true miracle herb in ancient Ayurvedic scriptures, is still believed to be a life-giving substance. According to Charaka, the ancient healer, Shilajit has powerful effects to the health. As Charaka Samhita dates back to over 2000 years, this claim can be considered a legend. Recent times however have started to reveal some truth about what was written on one of the earliest written Ayurvedic documents, as scientific research with India’s most prized herbal remedy Shilajitin, presents that amazing health benefits have been rediscovered about this herb. For thousands of years, then and now, Shilajit has been used to support energy, memory, mood, nutrient absorption, balancing of blood sugar, detoxification, cell-renewal and many others.
What is Shilajit and What Makes It So Rare
Universally, Shilajit go by various names, some of which are mineral pitch or mineral wax in English, mumiyo in Soviet Union, black asphaltum in Latin and chao-tong, wu ling zhi in Chinese. Known worldwide in different names including Mumie and Salajeet among many others, the word Shilajit originates from a Sanskrit word “shila”, which means stone or the compound word “shilajatu” meaning “rock-invinsible”. Shilajit is essentially an organic matter trapped between the mountain rocks and comes out as a sticky, resinuous material from the rocks in summer. It is a thick, sticky tar-like substance with a colour ranging from white to dark brown which is more common. Its’ color range varies from a yellowish brown to pitch-black, depending on composition. It is a blackish-brown exudation of variable consistency obtained from steep rocks of different formations found predominantly in Himalaya and Tibet mountains, Caucasus Mountains, Altai Mountains and mountains of Gilgit Baltistan in Pakistan.
It requires special vegetation and atmospheric conditions to emerge, which is why the only source of Shilajit are the rocks found in the Caucasus, Siberia and Himalayan mountains. Finding these rocks is difficult thus making Shilajit one of the rarest materials, and in effect, it is expensive.
The rarity of Shilajit and its’ expensive price drive counterfeiters to produce fake ones. An easy way to counterfeit this herb out of soil was found, resulting to the market being filled with substandard and outright fake Shilajit. As many as up to 99% supplements claim to contain Shilajit when they don’t have a trace of the original product in them. One can get the most from this herb only if the highest quality product is used.
Shilajit extraction and purification from the Shilajit bearing rocks entails an extremely delicate scientific process that requires high-quality, Shilajit-bearing stones. Usually, substandard Shilajit is made of sedimentary rock formations and soils where genuine Shilajit once was. Extraction methods employ harsh chemicals. This results into a material with only a minuscule amount of what supposedly is Shilajit.
The lack of precaution and commitment to ethical extraction results to many Shilajit supplements containing only trace amounts of the herb by the time they are processed. Most of these supplements come in powder form placed in a capsule or as tinctures that contain very little of the herb in them.
Spiking the inferior product with a Fulvicacid is done by manufacturers to mask this fact. Based on the high amount of Fulvicacid added to the product, it is marketed as “high-strength”. The efficacy of such is not even close to the genuine Shilajit.
Huge chunks of fake Shilajit are available in the market and they only contain some form of ground rock or soil that resembles the appearance of the herb.
Great amounts of fake Shilajit supplements are processed. They provide no genuine certification of authenticity or laboratory tests to prove the genuineness of their product and occasionally provide a document with a test for soil and not Shilajit.
These products may contain heavy metal contaminants from the impure rocks that are used to manufacture them. Hence they pose harm to the body over long periods of time.
