Shilajit History


Shilajit resin is a traditional Ayurvedic medicine that has been used for centuries in the Himalayan Mountains and surrounding areas. The word "Shilajit" is derived from the Sanskrit language.

The use of Shilajit resin can be traced back to ancient times, with references to its use found in the Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita, which are ancient Ayurvedic texts. In these texts, Shilajit was described as a substance that could cure a variety of ailments, including digestive issues, nervous disorders, and respiratory problems.

Shilajit resin is formed over thousands of years from the decomposition of plants and other organic materials. It is found in the Himalayan Mountains and surrounding areas, and is collected by local people who have been using it for generations.

In recent years, Shilajit resin has gained popularity as a natural supplement for its potential health benefits. While scientific research on Shilajit is still limited, preliminary studies suggest that it may have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune-boosting properties.

Shilajit resin is available as a supplement in various forms, including capsules, powders, and resin extracts. According to the Buddhist Scripture, it is the promise of Medicine Buddha, a mysterious substance to help people during the Dharma-Ending age. Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine) has regarded Shilajit as the foundation of longevity. The Tibetan medicine even sees it as panacea for all weakness.

The Himalayans is a hideout for many spiritual practitioners, Himalaya is called sacred mountain for its purity and spirituality. Shilajit is the treasure in Himalaya’s arms and regarded as a miracle of the mountains.

It states in the Charaka Samhita, “There is no curable disease in the universe which is not effectively cured by Shilajit when administered at the appropriate time, in combination with suitable drugs and by adopting the prescribed method.  When administered to a healthy person, with similar conditions it produces immense energy.”
