Shilajit / Silazit

Shilajit, also called mineral pitch, is the result of a long process of breaking down plant matter and minerals. It is a sticky, black, tar-like substance that comes from rocks in high mountain ranges.

Shilajit has been used in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, and the compounds in it appear to be beneficial for many conditions.

When it is used correctly, shilajit may have several benefits for the body. This may be due in part to the high concentration of fulvic and humic acids, as well as many minerals.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Shilajit contains an antioxidant known as fulvic acid. A 2012 study found that this fulvic acid in shilajit may help block the buildup of tau. Tau is a type of protein that forms twisted clusters of dead and dying nerve cells known as neurofibrillary tangles. Tau is considered a key marker of Alzheimer’s disease and similar diseases.

Sperm Count

A 2010 study published in the journal Andrologia investigated the effects of shilajit on sperm in 35 infertile men.

The people in the study took 100 milligrams (mg) of processed shilajit in capsule form twice daily for 90 days. At the end of the study period, 28 participants showed significant increases in total sperm count, the amount of healthy sperm, and sperm motility, a measure of how well sperm move.

High Cholesterol

Researchers found significant decreases in cholesterol levels and triglycerides in the shilajit group compared to the placebo group. High cholesterol and high triglycerides increase the risk of developing heart disease.

The shilajit group also had improved antioxidant status, a measure of how well the body protects cells from damage.
