SHILAJIT FAQs

What is Shilajit?

Shilajit is a black resinous substance that seeps out of cracks on mountain rocks at extremely high elevations. It is found throughout the world in areas surrounding India, China, Tibet, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia and Scandinavia. Essentially it is the organic minerals of a compacted & composted ancient Forest which was trapped within the sedimentary layers of the mountains, as they formed millions of years ago. The immense weight and harsh temperatures cause the Shilajit to flow from the peaks during the summer months. 
Showing a Ph of around 8.2, it contains a variety of rare compounds, essential amino acids, Minerals, Vitamins A, B, C & P, Phospholipids and polyphenol complexes, and terpenoids. Trace Elements include: Cobalt, Nickel, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Chrome, Iron, Magnesium, Iodine, Selenium & More…

 

How do you take Shilajit?

 Dissolve 250mg, about the size of a small pea, in a cup of water, tea, coffee or milk & drink once or twice a day, 15 - 30 minutes before Breakfast and Dinner.
If you weigh less than 115 pounds take 100 - 150mg. 
A 15 gram jar will last about a month if taking 250mg twice a day.
Since Shilajit is a concentrated super tonic it is not necessary to take 100% of the time. We recommend taking a break every few months to not overburden the body with any excess. Once the cells are saturated with minerals, the results will last with you and you can then periodically take Shilajit to reboost.
It is not recommended to take for more than 6 months at a time without a break.
Externally
In studies, Shilajit has been proven to have the exact same bio-availability and effects, taken orally as absorbed through the skin. Simply take the same amount you would dissolve in water and rub it on your more delicate areas of skin instead. This method is excellent for assisting sore muscles, pain & injuries.

 

Is Shilajit Safe?

YES
Through years of experience & in depth research of international clinical research, we have found Shilajit to be an extremely safe compound, proven to be effective and safe even in large amounts. Like everything, it needs to be taken in moderation, and used in accordance with its purpose.

What makes Black Lotus Shilajit Special?

We are extremely passionate about sourcing the highest quality Shilajit possible. *Latest Lab Tests showed our Shilajit had the highest amount of Fulvic Acid on the Market!
Our source is a family owned cooperative which supplies pharmacies in Russia. They sustainably harvest this rare resin during the summers, when it starts seeping out of the cracks on the mountain peaks. Our Shilajit is purified according to Ayurvedic tradition, using glacier lake water, then carefully sifted to remove large rocks and sediment and never heated above 103 degrees, preserving the precious raw nutrients, enzymes, minerals and unique properties. 
Our Shilajit has very low moisture, providing you more Shilajit per gram. Some other companies water it down or get "Cut" watered down Shilajit.
As soon as we get a batch we send a sample out for a 3rd party Lab for analysis. We don't start selling it until we know it is perfect.

Is Himalayan Shilajit higher quality?

Some companies claim that Himalayan Shilajit is higher quality because of the Altitude at which it is gathered. We did some further investigation and found that while the Altai Mountains are not currently as tall, they are 250 Million years older. Meaning the Shilajit has been picking up more and more precious Elements throughout the time it has been inside the mountains. During their lifetime The Altai Mountains were likely to have been just as tall as the HImalayas, but due to their age their tallest points have eroded. The Altai Mountains are also more rich with gold, being named Altai, which transaltes to Gold in the native language.

 

Does Shilajit have side effects?

Shilajit has no known side effects. None have ever been reported in Clinical Studies. 
Just Clean Energy and Calm Focus!! 
The only slight contraindication is to not take Shilajit alongside an iron prescription. This is because the different forms of Iron may bind together.
Is it Safe for Pregnant Women/Nursing Mothers?
In Short, No.
While Shilajit is very safe, even in large doses. It is not recommended that Pregnant Women, or Nursing Mothers take Shilajit. This is due to the dose difference between a full grown woman compared to a developing baby or newborn. 
However, Once you are done breastfeeding we HIGHLY recommend taking Shilajit to renourish the lost nutrients, rebuild strength and balance the Mind & HOrmones.
How do I know Shilajit is Pure?
Pure Shilajit has a distinct slightly bitter/smoky smell & taste, a dark brown/black color when dissolved and It is completely water soluble.
