This is how you use Shilajit!

shilajit is a natural resinous or tarry substance that has a wide range of health benefits. It is extracted from rocks in the Himalayan mountains when the sun shines on the rocks in the summer and the Shilajit flows from the rocks. Shilajit is used to combat depleted testosterone levels, inflammation, digestive problems and fatigue, and to improve gognitive ability.

In this blog we will take you on how to best take Shilajit. Now Shilajit is sold in different forms and the benefits, dosage and usage may differ for Shilajit Resin, Stone and Powder (capsules).

Shilajit Resin

Shilajit resin is considered one of the purest forms of Shilajit. This is because Shilajit Resin contains no added ingredients and is extracted directly from the natural source.

It is important to note that the quality of Shilajit resin can vary depending on the source and method of production. Some manufacturers process the product in a wrong or cheap way, which can affect the quality of the Shilajit resin.


Step 1: Buy high quality Shilajit

Make sure you buy Shilajit Resin from a reputable supplier who sells high quality, pure Shilajit Resin. There are many counterfeit products on the market, so do your research before buying. We describe in detail how you can recognize real Shilajit Resin in our blog: "Shilajit: What To Look For When Buying Shilajit".


Step 2: Prepare the Shilajit Resin

Carefully remove a small amount of Shilajit resin from the jar with a spoon, which is often included with the product. Shilajit Resin is very sticky, so it may take a while to remove from the jar.

Make sure to take around 250 to 500mg. This is about the size of a pea.


Step 3: Mix the shilajit with warm water, tea, milk or smoothie

Dissolve the shilajit in a cup of warm water, tea, milk or a smoothie. Don't make the water too hot, as the heat can reduce the shilajit's potent properties. Stir the mixture well until the shilajit is completely dissolved. It may take a while for the Shilajit to resolve.

Now you can also dissolve Shilajit resin on or under the tongue, however, the taste of Shilajit resin is very strong and most people prefer to dissolve the Shilajit in a drink.

Optionally, you can add honey to mask the taste of Shilajit.


Step 4: Drink the mixture

It is generally recommended to take Shilajit on an empty stomach. This way Shilajit can be better absorbed by the body and thus maximize the effects.


Step 5: Store Shilajit Resin properly

Store the shilajit in a dry, cool and dark place to keep the Shilajit at its best.

Shilajit Stone

Fossilized Shilajit is found in the rock strata of the mountains and was formed from the fossilized remains of plants and microorganisms deposited thousands of years ago.

Fossilized Shilajit, like Shilajit Resin, is a rare and valuable form of Shilajit due to the long time it takes to form.

Like other forms of Shilajit, petrified Shilajit also contains a complex blend of minerals, trace elements, and organic compounds that may contribute to a variety of health benefits. However, it is important to mention that the quality of petrified Shilajit can vary.

Often Shilajit stone is produced by bringing Shilajit to a boiling point and boiling out the moisture. In this process, important minerals and the Fulvic Acid are unfortunately destroyed.


Step 1: Buy high-quality Shilajit stone

Make sure you buy Shilajit stone from a trusted supplier who sells pure and natural Shilajit Stone. As already described above, the quality is strongly related to the production process 


Step 2: Prepare the Shilajit Stone

As the name says, Shilajit stone is very hard. So you will have to break down pieces of 250 to 500mg.


Step 3: Mix the shilajit stone with a drink

Now, just like Shilajit resin, you can dissolve the Shilajit in warm water, tea or milk, but you can also simply let the Shilajit stone dissolve on your tongue. Now many people find the taste of Shilajit very strong and often prefer to dissolve it in a drink. Now, however, it may take a little longer for Shilajit stone to dissolve.


Step 4: Drink the mixture

If you have chosen to dissolve the Shilajit stone in a drink, you can drink the drink as soon as the Shilajit stone is completely dissolved in water. 


Step 5: Store Shilajit Resin properly

Like other forms of Shilajit, you will also need to store Shilajit stone in a dark, dry and cool place in order to preserve it for a long time.

Shilajit in capsules and powder

We advise not to buy Shilajit in capsules as the quality of the Shilajit and the percentage of Fulvic acid is often low. The quality of powdered Shilajit depends on several factors such as the source of the Shilajit and the way Shilajit powder is produced. Like some forms of Shilajit stone, the moisture is boiled out so they can grind the remains into powder. This is then encapsulated. As we mentioned earlier in our blog: "Shilajit: What to watch out for the buy from Shilajit" describe.

It is important to mention that some manufacturers may contaminate powdered Shilajit with cheaper ingredients to increase their profits. It is therefore important to buy high-quality Shilajit powder from a reliable source and to check that the product has been properly certified and analyzed.
