If we are to believe various studies, the short answer is YES! Shilajit is considered by many to be one of the most effective supplements that can positively impact your overall health, whether you are a woman or a man. Shilajit has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for over 3000 years for a variety of health benefits.
Shilajit contains a generous amount of natural Fulvic acid, also known as Fulvic acid. According to research, fulvic acid is responsible, among other things, for better intestinal function in order to better absorb important nutrients and minerals. Shilajit, if the studies are to be believed, does much more than that.
In this article, we will take a closer look at the health benefits that, according to research, Shilajit can offer women. Think, among other things, of hormone regulation, maintenance of a thick head of hair, anti-aging effects, an effective remedy for Arthritis and possibly for the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.

One of the main benefits of Shilajit for women is that it can help regulate healthy hormone balance. The supplement contains several minerals and nutrients that can stimulate the production of hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone. This can be especially helpful for women experiencing hormonal imbalances, such as during menopause.
Progesterone is very important for female fertility. If progesterone is too low in the body, this imbalance may prevent ovulation (ovulation) or the uterus may be in a worse condition to allow a fertilized egg to implant.
Shilajit can help women increase their energy levels and improve their stamina. The supplement contains a high concentration of fulvic acid, a compound that can help transport nutrients and oxygen to cells. This can lead to increased energy levels and improved physical performance.
Both human and animal studies support the use of Shilajit as a revitalizing agent, enhancing physical performance and relieving fatigue with enhanced production of 'ATP' (Safety and efficacy of shilajit (mumie, moomiyo))
ATP stands for adenosine triphosphate, which is an organic substance that provides energy for a variety of biological functions in living cells, including muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, condensate dissolution, and chemical synthesis.
Shilajit can also help regulate the menstrual cycle. The supplement contains several minerals and nutrients necessary for reproductive health, such as iron, folic acid and zinc. These nutrients can help regulate the menstrual cycle and promote healthy ovulation.
You can read more about the effect of Shilajit on reproductive health in our article: "Does Shilajit Increase Fertility in Women and Men?"
Shilajit contributes to improved skin health in women. Shilajit can protect the skin against harmful environmental factors, such as UV radiation. In addition, the supplement may help improve skin elasticity and hydration, which can lead to healthier, younger-looking skin.
More importantly, Shilajit contains very high doses of antioxidants. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals without becoming free radicals themselves (Free radicals, oxidative stress and antioxidant defense). Free radicals are a specific class of unstable molecules that are produced during typical cell metabolism (chemical changes that take place in a cell). In cells, free radicals can build up and damage other molecules, including proteins, lipids and even DNA. This accelerates the aging process of the body and skin. In addition, the risk of cancer and other disorders increases as a result of this damage. Shilajit can be a solution for this.

Finally, shilajit may help women reduce stress and anxiety. Although the study we refer to below is a rat study, the findings are positive. The supplement contains adaptogenic compounds that may improve the body's ability to respond to stress. This can help women better cope with everyday stressors and promote better mental health.
In 2012, a group of researchers from India published a study called: “Shilajit attenuates behavioral symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome by modulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and mitochondrial bioenergetics in rats”, where rats were placed in a stressful situation. The rats had to swim for 21 minutes every day for 15 days. The rats were treated before and during the study with 25, 50 and 100mg Shilajit per KG body weight.
The study results showed that the corticosterone hormone in rats with Shilajit was much lower. Corticosterone is the cortisol hormone for rats. In addition to Corticosterone, the overall activity of the complex network called hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis was measured. This complex network ensures that biochemical and biophysical processes are kept in balance in times of stress. This network has a similar effect in humans.
It was concluded that the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis was modified by Shilajit to reduce the stress response.
While no direct research has been done on the effects of Shilajit on hair, there has been research on the effects of Shilajit on blood circulation in the skin (Skin Transcriptome of Middle-Aged Women Supplemented With Natural Herbo-mineral Shilajit Shows Induction of Microvascular and Extracellular Matrix Mechanisms). The study results showed a huge improvement in skin microcirculation after 14 weeks of supplementation with Shilajit. Hypothetically, this could provide an improved supply of nutrients to the hair.
In addition to the above hypothesis, Shilajit has elements beneficial for strengthening and shiny hair, including sulfur, fulvic acid, zinc and magnesium. Women with a zinc deficiency are more likely to have a damaged hair protein structure and poor hair quality.
In the investigation “Therapeutic Potential of Fulvic Acid in Chronic Inflammatory Diseases and Diabetes” from 2018, the reader is rightly reminded that both traditional medicine and modern medicine see Fulvic acid as an immune system enhancer.
Rheumatoid arthritis, which is more common in women, is a disease that affects the joints. The research “Sex differences in rheumatoid arthritis: more than meets the eye...” describes that women are 3 times more likely to develop rheumatoid than men. In addition, the study describes that the course of the disease is more severe in women. Enough reasons for women to avoid the disease.
Shilajit contains fulvic acid, according to research, a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound. Shilajit can significantly reduce the oxidative stress and inflammation chemicals generated in people with arthritis. In 1990, the anti-inflammatory powers of Shilajit were already described in the study: “Antiulcerogenic and anti-inflammatory studies with shilajit”.
Women are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than men. On the other hand, women live longer after diagnosis than men.
Several studies have shown the link between Alzheimer's disease and the clumping of so-called 'TAU proteins'. TAU proteins are multidisciplinary for the brain, but when they clump together in the brain due to mutation of the TAU proteins, they can cause various forms of Alzheimer's disease.
There are several indications that Shilajit counteracts and may even prevent these clumps. However, a lot more research is needed to further confirm this and to understand the mechanism responsible for this.
In our article: "Can Shilajit Prevent Alzheimer's Disease?" let's take a closer look at this topic.
Shilajit may have a positive effect on heart health, according to research. For example, Shilajit can protect the heart when a heart attack occurs. Research with rats has shown that during a heart attack less damage occurs on the heart when supplemented with Shilajit.
The researchers concluded that Shilajit has a protective role when a heart attack occurs. More research is needed to understand the mechanism responsible for the protective role Shilajit plays in heart health.
Heart disease is the number 2 cause of death in almost every 1e world country. Cardiovascular diseases are responsible for almost 30% of all causes of death. Not unimportant, therefore, to have a healthy lipid profile. Briefly about the lipid profile: The amounts of HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol), LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides are combined in a lipid profile. This lipid profile can be used to determine whether someone has an increased risk of developing heart and liver disease. A high LDL-cholesterol and a high triglyceride level increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Shilajit lowers bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Shilajit can therefore help with a healthy lipid profile.

When estrogen levels are low in women during menopause, less calcium is absorbed, which weakens bones and lowers bone mineral density. Shilajit is an all-natural plant-based substance that may support bone health, according to research. It may be able to increase the absorption of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphate in the tissues of the bones and muscles. As a result, there is a lower chance of bone fragility and fractures. Shilajit, according to research, accelerates bone mineralization and faster healing, even in the case of a bone fracture.
Research suggests that Osteoporosis, also known as osteoporosis, can be prevented with Shilajit. It stimulates the activity of the hormones and enzymes involved in bone formation and increases the amount of calcium deposited in the bones.

When people travel to higher areas for winter sports, for example, many people experience problems. Low air pressure, fast wind speed and cooler temperatures are the cause of this. Fulvic acid and 84 other powerful minerals in Shilajit work to relieve the symptoms of altitude sickness, including fatigue, nausea, pulmonary edema, insomnia, hypoxia and physical discomfort.
In 2010, a study was published called “Shilajit: A panacea for high-altitude problems” which concluded that Shilajit is very effective in combating altitude sickness.
The highest quality Shilajit is Shilajit Resin. Partly because this form is 100% natural and contains the highest concentration of Fulvic acid and concentration of about 84 other important minerals.

Shilajit is a natural substance from traditional Ayurveda medicine and all Ayurvedic components or treatments take time to produce beneficial effects. This is because:
Shilajit gives improvements by addressing the root cause of a problem. Shilajit does not mask the symptoms but improves the symptoms by remedying the cause.
Ayurveda medicine is based on the idea that "whole body healing" should be addressed. Both the mind and the body are cared for and protected.
It is advised to use Shilajit for about three months to get and see the maximum results. Improvements can be seen after two to three weeks of consistent use, including increased energy, improved cognitive ability and reduced stress.
