The Journey From The Mountain To A Jar
Shilajit resin has a long journey that takes it from the mountains of himalayas to the product you see in front of you.

It comes from the Himalayan mountainous regions but only in the summer. As temperature is raised in the rock by the summer heat it oozes out of the cracks of the mountains. It is formed over centuries by the weight of the mountains and extreme atmospheric weather cycle. It causes the decomposition of plants and by the activity of different microorganisms such as Euphorbia Royleana and Trifolium Repens, Shilajit is formed. Sounds yucky, but it’s the leftover of components that creates this mineral .Shilajit resin takes centuries to form, and scientists consider it a millenary product of nature.

Sometimes it takes human’s breath while climbing up those peaks. These climbers are courageous , the way they climb and pick shilajit from the mountains at 18000 Altitude.

The extraction of shilajit is done by putting the raw shilajit rock in the fresh himalayan water. Shilajit is soluble in water,so it gets dissolved in it and the impurities are settled down in the bottom.
Then this water is filtered and is put on boil until it gets thick and sticky.

What Does It Look Like?
When in raw, form it looks like dirty rocks, that is because these rocks are found at high altitudes.
When this rock is purified it turns into a blackish brown semi solid substance. It looks gooey and sticky.
