Purified Shilajit Resin
2oz (56 grams)
What is Shilajit Resin?
Shilajit is a powerful natural adaptogen which is formed from compressed organic vegetable matter that grows on high altitude mountains, cliffs, and rocks. When it’s ready, it seeps from the rock crevices as a dark gummy resin. We sustainably source our shilajit directly from the mountains of Siberia, purify it, and pack it into Miron violet glass containers to preserve the quality of the nutrient-rich superfood.
Shilajit is believed to be one of the richest sources of minerals found in nature, containing over 85 of them in ionic form including iron, calcium, and zinc.
What is Organic Miron Glass?
The Ancient Egyptians first discovered the powerful properties of violet glass when they used it to store precious essential oils and tonics. Our shilajit is packaged in high-quality Miron violet glass, which has been proven to protect the contents from UV light and in turn effectively maintain the nutritional freshness and potency of the resin. The Miron glass jar will beautify your pantry, and it can be recycled when empty making it eco-friendly. You can also reuse the jar after you have finished the shilajit, and use it to store oils, creams or snacks. The Miron glass jar will extend the shelf-life of the shilajit, but we still recommend storing it in a cool, dry place.
How Do I Use Shilajit?
Our shilajit is extremely potent, so you’ll only need to add a pea-sized amount (300-500mg) of the resin to a glass of warm water and then stir until it is fully dissolved. You can pinch of a small amount of the resin, and then pop it into warm water, stir and drink straight away. Some people like to take their shilajit as a 'shooter' for a quick morning pick-me up (see below for the recipe).
It does have a distinct smoky flavour, which many people grow to love (and crave), so you can also dilute it a little by using it in tonic teas, smoothies and juices. If it's your first time using shilajit, always start with a smaller dose and see how you feel and then you can then work your way up to a larger dose. You can take your dose of shilajit up to three times per day. Because of it's pick-me-up qualities, shilajit is best enjoyed first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and many people choose to use it much like a coffee alternative. Although it can be enjoyed throughout the day, we recommend not taking it just before bed.
For a creamy and satisfying elixir, the smoky flavor of shilajit works well when dissolved in warm water and blended with nut milk, ground vanilla beans, a pinch of cinnamon, and a teaspoon of coconut oil.
