Super Shilajit 250mg is a stimulating dietary supplement developed from patented purified shilajit.
Drawing on its age-old use and medicinal properties as recorded by many systems of traditional medicine, Supersmart is pleased to offer a purified shilajit extract standardised to 60% fulvic acids and 10% DBP-chromoproteins to maximise its effects.
Shilajit is an exudate which seeps out of certain mountain rocks, particularly those that make up the Himalayas. It is primarily composed of humic substances (humus and paleo-humus) as well as various plant and microbial metabolites typical of the rock rhizosphere, the region of soil formed and influenced by the root microbiome. It’s also found to a lesser extent in Tibet, Russia and Norway, always at altitudes above 1000 metres. It has a distinctive bitter taste, and acrid, fermented smell (1).
Among the four existing varieties of shilajit – savrana, rajat, tamra and lauha – it is the latter which appears to be the most effective from various therapeutic perspectives (2).
Scientists believe that certain succulents, bryophytes and dicotyledons, such as white clover, may be responsible for its formation (3). It’s said that shilajit was rediscovered by Himalayan villagers who had observed large monkeys migrating to the mountains during the warm summer months, where they would chew on a soft substance seeping out of the rock layers. These local populations quickly attributed the monkeys’ strength and longevity to this substance and introduced it into their own pharmacopoeia .
It has been used as a regenerative agent and an adaptogen for more than 3000 years (4), especially by the Vaidyas and Hakims. Its integration into several respected traditional systems of medicine has been attracting scientific interest for around 20 years, and a good number of the many beneficial properties attributed to it have been validated by research (5-6).
In-depth studies have been conducted in parallel to determine the exact composition of shilajit. Benzoic acid, hippuric acid, resin, gum and albuminoids have all been shown to be its main constituents, though it’s likely to be the presence of dibenzo-beta-pyrones (DBP), fulvic acids and humic acids which is responsible for the effects described by users and the literature.
