What is Shilajit

The Scientific name of Shilajit is Asphaltum. It’s a form of biomass. It is basically formed due to compression of several organic materials which is formed between rock layers since thousands of years. It takes centuries to develop and formed due to slow decomposition of plants. And in summers this biomass gets discharged out of fissures which lie in between the rock of Himalayas. You can even take it as a blackish-brown colored herb. Reference of Shilajit has been found back in 3000 BC in Ayurvedic texts. People used to have Shilajit as a health rejuvenator. Even you can find its reference in Charak Samhita and in Shrangdhar Samhita where Shilajit is mentioned as Rasayana. People in foreign countries started use of it back in 1890.
