Herbal Extracts of Indian Spices

Shilajit Paste, purified, 30 grams

This shilajit is traditional, meaning that the raw material was harvested when the sun was beating against the slopes of the high Himalayas and processed again and again with water and then with herbs, mainly the three fruits used to make triphala. This is the form one should use to take shilajit. It is intensely bitter unless diluted in water or tea. It dissolves in water if stirred occasionally. The normal dose is half a gram to one gram per day, preferably two hours before eating. One package will therefore last 1-2 months. Shilajit is an extremely valuable source of trace minerals and is typically regarded as nourishing to the brain.

Ingredients: purified shilajit from the Nepalese Himalayas in paste form.
