Shilajit is a Sanskrit word meaning “Conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness” and ‘Winner of rock’. Its other names are Silajit and Silaras in Sanskrit Shilajita Mumiyo, Mineral pitch, Asphalt, Jew's pitch, Mineral wax, or Ozokerite in English. Shilajit is a natural resin found in the sacred Himalayan areas. The effect of resins on the body has a special meaning in Ayurveda. Slightly soluble, resins act slowly by entering the bloodstream into the system, they act on the regeneration of our tissues and cells. Therefore, resins are common in Ayurveda, but also in Chinese and Tibetan medicine, which just like Ayurveda, value and use Shilajit. In Russian medicine, it is called Mumio and is generally accepted and expanded as a nutritional tonic and a powerful natural remedy that recovers the body from severe conditions, illness, exhaustion and loss of strength. As a biostimulator, it has a beneficial effect on the human body, renews and strengthens the whole organism. It acts as a rejuvenating tonic, revitalized and aphrodisiac.
