What is shilajit? (She-la-jeet/ Asphalt)
Shilajit is an exudates that is pressed out from layers of rock in sacred mountains in Nepal and other Himalayan mountains. It is composed of humus and organic plant material that has been compressed by layers of rock. The active principle of Shilajit is fulvic acid. Humus is formed when soil micro organisms decompose animal and plant material into elements usable by plants. Unlike other soil humus, Shilajit humus consists of 60 – 80% organic mass. About 200 million years ago, India was a large island off the Australian coast separated from the Eurasian continent by the Tethys Sea. The Indian continent drifted north at a rate of about 9 meters a century. This movement lead to the eventual disappearance of the Tethys sea. 40 to 50 million years ago the Indian continent collided with the Asian continent. This caused the sea bed of the Tethys sea to be pushed up and keep moving up to eventually form the Himalayan mountains. The Himalayan mountains continue to rise more than 1 Centimetre a year. During this transition the mineral rich and fertile soil of the sea bed gave rise to a lush and dense tropical jungle. As the ground continued to be pushed up to become mountains a lot of the plants became trapped by layers of rock and soil and remained preserved for thousands of years. These plants had never been exposed to any chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides. They are gradually transformed into Humus, a rich organic mass that is food for new plant life. Due to microbial action and the tremendous pressure from the weight of the mountains the Humus was transformed into a dense, viscous, mineral rich mass. This is Shilajit. The trapped layers of Shilajit become exposed due to the freezing winters, hot summer sun and erosion from monsoon rains. Shilajit will “flow” out from between the cracks in the layers of rock during the summer when the temperature of the mountains gets warm enough and the Shilajit becomes less viscous. The native Nepali people them climb the mountains, repel down cliffs to collect the Shilajit. The primary active ingredients in Shilajit are Fulvic Acids, Dibenzo Alpha Pyrones, Humins, Humic Acids and trace minerals. These are produced by microbial action on humus (think of Humus as a nutrient rich soil, like compost)

This is a very broad statement and recent research has proven that its adaptogenic properties can indeed benefit everyone; however there are certain conditions that it is especially effective for.
