‘Destroyer of weakness’ - Shits-la-jit!!
What is it?
Shilajit is a sticky substance found primarily in the rocks of the Himalayas. It develops over centuries from the slow decomposition of plants. Shilajit is commonly used in ayurvedic medicine. It’s an effective and safe supplement that can have a positive effect on your overall health and well-being.
Big benefits in a small amount:
Add a pea sized amount of resin to your organic coffee, tea, hot (dairy free) milk or hot water, first thing in the morning before consuming any food.
Note: Shilajit has been known to keep some people awake, so morning is the best time to take it.
Daily intake on empty stomach is recommended.
The time required to achieve results varies from person to person, depending upon the body’s needs of energy and minerals. It can take two weeks to a few months to get desired results.
Adults can take Shilajit about the size of a pea and swallow it empty stomach at least 30 minutes before breakfast. If you don’t like its bitter taste or smell, you may dissolve a pea sized Shilajit in warm water or milk and drink it. You can get better results by taking it with a spoon of natural honey and fresh garlic.
Jar Opening Instructions
We recommend that you put the jar in an upright position in warm water for few minutes to let the paste settle down. Often customers find it very hard to open the jar, as it is very sticky. Please keep in mind that this is its physical property and sign of great quality. However, we always add three grams extra to cover any wastage.
Shilajit is composed mainly of humic substances, including fulvic acid, that account for around 60% to 80% of the total nutraceutical compound plus some oligo-elements including selenium of anti-aging properties.
Is it safe to consume while pregnant?
It's advised to avoid the consumption of Shilajit during pregnancy.
Is it safe for small children to consume?
Tolman Health does not recommend Shilajit for small children as it has diuretic properties so need to be careful with little kidneys.
However, research has found that Shilajit is commonly served to children (smaller amounts than adults) in Nepal with milk.
We always recommend that you do your own research, and doing what is best for your family.
Can I have Shilajit while water fasting?
Yes and No. Depends on why you are water fasting.
Yes, if you are lacking specific minerals and it is classified to be mimicking fasting when you are consuming under 500cals, so depends on serving size (Cal .3gr = 15cal).
No, as a ‘true’ water fast is water only.
Does Shilajit have a use-by date?
Nope. If it goes a bit hard, just warm it up.
