Benefit 1

Strengthening the cardiovascular system

Shilajit resin is an excellent cardiotonic due to its antioxidative properties. Research studies have confirmed shilajit benefits to improved heart activity and protection against injuries to the myocardium. Furthermore, research has shown that shilajit has a positive effect on cholesterol level, which poses a serious risk for the development of cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. A research study revealed that the ingestion of a 2g dose of shilajit for 45 days without interruption helped reduce triglyceride levels and improve the levels of the "good” HDL cholesterol. Furthermore, copper and iron in Shilajit play an important role in oxygen transport throughout the body.

Shilajit, healthy colon and healthy bacteria

Recently, more and more people have become aware of the importance of a healthy colon. Here, it is important to understand the difference between "good” and "bad” intestinal bacteria, and the importance of preserving one’s digestive system in an excellent condition. After all, a healthy digestive system is essential for the preservation of immunity, a healthy appetite, stress management and much more.

Recent research has shown that fulvic acid was an important factor in the provision of a healthy digestive system and improved bowel function. Fulvic acid contains nutrients supporting the ability of beneficial (good) intestinal bacteria to make healthy microbiomes in the body (a microbiome is a collective term for an "ecological community” of bacteria found in the digestive system).
Furthermore, research has shown that the use of fulvic acid reduces the incidence of digestive disorders and intestinal inflammation. It also helps reduce constipation, flatulence, diarrhoea and food allergies. In addition to fulvic acid, humic acid also has a beneficial effect on colon health. Fulvic and humic acids together account for 60 to 80% of total shilajit mass. So, the biological and therapeutic effects of shilajit can be attributed to them.

Relieving symptoms of chronic fatigue, insomnia and stress

The chronic fatigue syndrome can completely reduce your ability to function normally. People suffering from the chronic fatigue syndrome feel extreme fatigue or tiredness, problems remembering, pain and sleep problems. The most common reason for the mentioned problems is an unbalanced HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis, the main route responding to long-term stress in the body. The activation of the HPA axis elevates hormone levels, with cortisol or the stress hormone having the predominant effect. Such hormones cause changes in the background undetectable to an individual. Elevated levels of such hormones also lead to reduced function of the immune system and damage to nerve cells in the hippocampus. Such changes may lead to the incidence of infections, mental disorders, problems remembering and concentrating, and so on ...

HPA has a strong impact on energy levels, memory function and circadian rhythm (day-night rhythm) of an individual. People with chronic fatigue symptoms should primarily aim at establishing normal function of the HPA axis. Research has shown that shilajit resin cushions the effects of chronic fatigue symptoms by regulating the HPA axis and maintaining mitochondrial function and integrity. Regular use of shilajit leads to reduced tiredness and anxiety, while preventing excessive increase of cortisol level and therewith related increased stress.
Shilajit also has the ability to regulate the second important factor of chronic fatigue – mitochondrial dysfunction. These tiny power plants produce all energy in cells. In case of mitochondrial dysfunction, one may feel a lack of energy and other chronic fatigue symptoms. Fulvic acid and dibenzo-alpha-pyrones act as antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Dibenzo-alpha-pyrones help regulate mitochondrial function, which enables body cells to absorb and break down nutrients in order to get energy.

Tiredness is often also the result of iron deficiency. Present-day diet often fails to deliver sufficient amounts of iron, which is why iron needs to be ingested with dietary supplements. Iron is very important for the production of haemoglobin, which transfers oxygen from the lungs to other body parts. Iron deficiency is often the reason for anaemia. Shilajit resin is very rich in iron and humic acid, thus preventing iron deficiency and the development of chronic fatigue.

Increased energy levels and improved physical performance

Shilajit as a vasodilator

Continuous supply of oxygen- and mineral-enriched blood to cells is vital particularly for athletes. It is crucial that blood vessels are as wide as possible, thus enabling increased blood flow and, consequently, increased supply of nutrients to cells. The widening of blood vessels is the result of the production of nitric oxide. The human body has the ability to produce nitric oxide from substances in the blood. Shilajit contains several minerals, from which nitric oxide is produced. Furthermore, shilajit contains fulvic and humic acids, which attract large amounts of oxygen and other nutrients to themselves, feeding them to cells, particularly muscle cells. With additional fuel, muscle cells perform better, which leads to improved stamina and increased muscle mass.

One of many research studies dealing with potential benefits of shilajit resin to athletes examined possible cardiovascular effects of a daily 500g dose of shilajit resin in men and women. Researchers recorded several very promising results. In addition to notable improvement to cardiovascular function, researchers also recorded a 30% increase in nitric oxide levels in participants. Furthermore, participants showed an improved complete blood count with reduced cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Shilajit and ATP production

Shilajit resin has been proven to increase energy level. Shilajit increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the main source of energy in the human body. ATP is produced in mitochondria, where the food ingested in converted to energy. By ageing, mitochondria produce less and less ATP. Research has shown that shilajit had the ability to produce, use and even preserve energy at cell level. Furthermore, it has shown that shilajit reduced the amount of ATP used as an energy source during exercise by 20%, thus allowing prolonged and intensive sports activity.

Collagen growth in skeletal muscles

Collagen is the main component of all body ligaments and cartilage. As one of the strongest connecting tissues in the human body, collagen is vital for the elasticity and strength of one’s muscle cells. In a research conducted by the Ohio University, participants initially ingested 250mg of shilajit twice a day upon no physical activity for 8 weeks and then ingested the same amount upon physical activity for the next 4 weeks. Results showed that the intake of shilajit had caused an adjustment of skeletal muscles by regulating genes that control muscle elasticity, regeneration and repair.

Athletes often suffer from bone and joint pain. With its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, shilajit prevents and eliminates pain in bones and joints.

Many top athletes regularly use shilajit. Shilajit is the natural doping. Upon regular use of Shilajit, the complete blood count improves substantially.

Enhancing the immune system

Shilajit has been proven to enhance the immune system. Research has shown that patients taking shilajit showed a substantial increase in T-lymphocytes, a class of white blood cells that plays the central role in the human immune system. Shilajit helps macrophages, a type of white blood cells, to act better and faster. Specifically, shilajit increases the production of interleukin (IL-1), a protein released by macrophages. IL-1 alerts sleeper white blood cells of dangers for the organism and stimulates their activity. Increased white blood cell activity prevents the entry of bacteria and viruses in the bloodstream. Shilajit also stabilises mast cells and keeps them from releasing histamine, thus preventing allergy reactions.

Fulvic and humic acids, which together account for some 60 to 80% of shilajit, are powerful antioxidants and electrolytes. They attract numerous vitamins and minerals to themselves, feeding them to cells via the bloodstream. Furthermore, fulvic and humic acids help the body retain and absorb the nutrients needed for health and well-being.
