Shilajit has been used in Ayurveda for centuries and by the Himalayan Sherpas, who are known for their strength and healthy longevity. Called the "destroyer of weakness," Shilajit is said to support every system of the body. It has been shown to increase strength and energy and improve memory.
Shilajit’s multiple benefits are due in part to the high concentration of fulvic and humic acids, as well as the 85 minerals it contains. Besides providing raw nutrients, fulvic acid transports minerals and other nutrients to cells more effectively, boosting absorption rates of nutrients by making cells more permeable. Shilajit is one of the most common supplements used to increase intake of this beneficial and potent acid.
