Shilajit means "rock of life" in Sanskrit. Anecdotes, none of them verified by medical studies, claim the Shilajit plant gives its users the ability to retain youth and energy, to endure the ravages of time with a rock-like durability. Shilajit is found in the Himalayan region. It supposedly contains 85 minerals and fulvic acid. Some people take it in supplement form to ward off illnesses, boost metabolism and lose weight. However, there is no reputable evidence that this supplement can impart any of these benefits.
Begin by taking 300 mg of Shilajit per day. This may be taken at any time during the day, but it should be taken with water. If you are using liquid Shilajit, mix it in juice or water.
If your body does well with 300 mg of Shilajit and you do not experience a rash, headache or other reaction, add in an additional 100 mg of Shilajit per day and work up to 500 mg. An average dose of Shilajit is between 300 to 500mg daily.
Cut back on Shilajit if you experience any negative side effects. Increase your water consumption.
