Introducing HANAH Shilajit+
by Phil White
At HANAH, we’re committed to keeping our range of pure botanicals small so that we can continue to provide the highest quality products that are tonics for the stresses of modern living. But when we came across Himalayan shilajit and saw just how potent this ancient adaptogen is, we knew we had to find a way to add it to our lineup.
The word shilajit translates as “rock tar.” Some of the biggest benefits of Shilajit are derived from the atypically high concentration of fulvic acid that provides its richly-colored appearance. Fulvic acid in shilajit is formed as organic plant matter decomposes over millions of years to create the charcoal-colored substance that literally oozes out of the Himalayas.
This might not sound too appealing at face value, but shilajit is a prized commodity in mountain communities for good reason – it’s a curative and vitality-promoting tonic. And fulvic acid is a big part of its potency, as it transports the other minerals that rejuvenate cellular health as quickly and directly as Elon Musk’s Hyperloop. Shilajit is so effective that it’s known in the mountainous villages of the Himalayan Plateau as the “destroyer of weakness." As with our Ashwagandha+, Turmeric+, and the proprietary blend of herbs in HANAH ONE, shilajit is classified as an adaptogen because it helps the body buffer the physical, cognitive, and emotional stressors of high performance and daily life alike.
Scientific studies have uncovered other benefits to shilajit that Himalayan highlanders have enjoyed for millennia. It packs a powerful dibenzo-alpha-pyrone punch that elevates energy levels by increasing the activity level and efficiency of the body’s mitochondria. Shilajit has also been found to boost immune system function and reduce both acute and chronic inflammation, due to its cocktail of powerful antioxidants. And in Russia, where shilajit is known as moomiyo, elite athletes, astronauts, and military units have used “rock tar” to improve their cognitive and physical performance for over 40 years.
Yet not all shilajit is created equal. Most derivatives in the West are diluted and/or highly processed at high temperatures, which greatly reduces the effectiveness of the end product and means you’re getting far less bang for your buck. In contrast, our unique Shilajit+ formula is made from the highest quality ingredients available and batch tested on site in India by suppliers we’ve worked closely with for years to ensure it meets strict standards before being exported to the US in small batches, and then tested again.
Unlike other companies, we do not add any kind of fillers to Shilajit+ but only the purified rock tar, along with a perfectly calibrated amount of ashwagandha and the powerful botanical Mucuna pruriens. The result? A balanced blend of time-tested adaptogens to support the added stresses of today’s modern lifestyle. Don’t take our word for it – try HANAH Shilajit+ for yourself and let us know how it enhances your health and vitality.
