Shilajit Extract w/Triphala for Digestive Support (400mg) (5% Fulvic Acid)
Shilajit helps build energy, strength and virility while supporting your general well being!
Shilajit is recognized as a powerful anti-oxidant and adaptogenic supplement that will help energize and revitalize your well being. More than 3,000 years ago, Shilajit was cited in ancient Sanskrit texts as “conqueror of mountains” and “destroyer of weaknesses.” It’s a common supplement used in the ancient practice of Ayurveda, a traditional science of disease prevention and treatment. Ayurveda originated in India and is currently practiced in Asia, India and many other countries around the world. In the US, Ayurvedic practitioners recommend shilajit to combat lack of energy, virility and to support rejuvenation of a person’s general well being.
It’s a thick sticky tar-like substance that’s found high in the Himalaya, Karakuram, Caucuses mountains and Tibetan mountains. As it turns out, it’s key ingredient fulvic acid is what makes shilajit so unusually powerful. Fulvic acid gives shilajit its anti-oxidant power and strength as a systemic rejuvenator and “adaptogen” (an herb or nutrient that helps your body fight stress and fatigue by adapting it’s function to your body’s needs). Its origins are in the form of mineral pitch originating from a thick gooey, tar-like substance making shilajit a super concentrated source of trace minerals.

Tony O’s take on Swanson’s Shilajit Extract:
We’re only beginning to understand the power and subtlety of adaptogens in the health process, though they’ve been used for centuries in many traditional medicinal practices. In the case of shilajit being a mineral substance and taking consideration for the location of it’s origin, it’s incredibly rich in trace elements we don’t normally get from our local fruits, herbs, plants or our general diet. It comes from the mountains of the Himalayan and Tibetan regions which have an unusual variety of plant and tree life very different from ours here, therefore providing us with minerals we would normally never have a chance to get. I’ve personally used Swanson’s Shilajit extract for years and I can tell you first hand it works. It’s adaptogenic properties are fantastic. I’ve used it on and off over the years for times when I’m feeling a bit lethargic or overtired from my rigorous agendas; and after a couple of months of daily usage I feel back to normal. I enjoy a great recharged feeling and my well being is in perfect balance. One of my must have’s in my healing closet.
