So the big question is, what is this sticky black resin?  This thick, blackish-brown, sticky substance is made from plants and organic matter that have been trapped by many layers of rocks over millions of years in the areas surrounding India, China, Tibet, Nepal, Pakistan, Central Asia and Scandinavia.  The extreme variations of hot and cold weather combined with the massive pressure from the weight of the mountains creates the mineral rich matter to flow out of the rocks.  Shilajit resin contains 50 percent plus fulvic acid and holds more than 85 different vitamins and minerals that the body requires. There’s nothing else like it found in nature, and this network of interconnected vitamins and minerals cannot be replicated in...

Shilajit was first discovered by Himalayan villagers.

Fulvic Acid

Fulvic acid is a humic substance. It is a product of decomposition and formed through geochemical and biological reactions, such as the breakdown of food in a compost heap. It can be extracted from compost, soil, and other substances to be processed into a supplement. The percentage of Fulvic Acid in Shilajit is particularly high, researchers believe fulvic acid to be responsible for many of Shilajit’s medicinal properties.  Dr. Andy Kahn MD  writes in his report titled “What is Shilajit?” saying, “The fulvic acid in shilajit is in its most natural and pure form. Fulvic acid is required to dilate the cell walls and transport the minerals deep into the cells.” Fulvic acid allows the 85+ minerals from shilajit to enter...
