Shilajit is a thick and sticky black or brown tar-like substance more commonly found high in the Himalayan mountains in Asia and the Altai mountains in eastern Europe (some shilajit is even known to be white). When an organic material expires, the compounds can mix with microbial metabolites, as well as other organic material which surrounds the substance. Once this happens, a long process of fermentation begins where the substance buries itself deep inside rocks. After a while, it is pulled out of the rocks by the sun. This is where the tar-like substance is harvested and brought to your door.
Essentially shilajit is rich in various bioactive compounds, acids, and trace minerals and is known to create many different benefits for the consumer.
