Top 10 Immune System Boosters

Shilajit is rich in essential minerals and trace elements


Shilajit: A Powerful Ayurvedic Adaptogen

Considered the root of all Ayurvedic medicine, shilajit (shee-la-jeet) is an organic tar-like substance that exudes from rocks high in the Himalayas and other mountain ranges during the warmer summer months. Translated from Sanskrit as "rock-invincible," the potent exudate contains as much as 80 minerals and trace elements, including fulvic acid, which supports cell metabolism, neutralizes free radicals and detoxifies simple toxins. Used as an antioxidant, an anti-stressor and an immune system booster, shilajit is also taken with other Ayurvedic herbs in order to boost the health benefits of both substances. Shilajit extract can be found either in capsule form, or as a powder that can be mixed with water, tea or smoothies.
