Shilajit is most definitely the boon to humanity given by the supreme powers above. It is a complex compound that could have only existed by excellent and smart natural workmanship of the environment. Shilajit is a perfect combination of naturally occurring minerals that are present in our body, fulvic and humic acids, carbon – 60 a naturally occurring isotope of carbon, plant-based antioxidants, and countless more valuable organic acids.
Naturally occurring in the mountainous regions of the Himalayas, Shilajit is a black tar-like substance that oozes out of rocks. This can be refined into a pure liquid base. Liquid Shilajit is quite sticky and has a thick consistency. However, there is a solution, Shilajit capsules at Nirogam can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and ailments ranging from infertility to almost everything.
Below are a few uses of Shilajit capsules:
Enhances the vitality of your skin
Shilajit is rich in silicon, which is particularly important in promoting nourishing skin collagen synthesis and also, it’s elasticity. Shilajit is also known for boosting the production of antibodies which help remove toxins from the body and in this case the skin, giving it a healthier Shilajit also contains Manganese which slows down the ageing of cells in the body and the development of wrinkles on the skin. It also contains trace amounts of copper which boost the elasticity of the skin as well as melanin production which helps the body from contracting skin cancer.
Improves Regeneration in Wounds
Whenever there is a wound on the skin, the body engages an immune response to it, which causes swelling and the formation of pus (white blood cells). The body also starts generating growth hormones to repair the damaged area. Shilajit is rich in the 10 most important amino acids required for muscle/tissue repair. Several medical trials of the effectiveness of Shilajit on patients have proven that Shilajit causes a speed in recovery by at least 1.5 times.
Speedy Recovery from bone and muscle-related trauma
All through the ancient history of medicine, Shilajit has been used in helping recover from broken bones, fractures, joint dislocation and more. Numerous trials conducted during the 60s and 70s in USSR carried out on 4000 patients proved that Shilajit reduced the time taken for a fracture to heal by 50%. Not just that, not only was the time taken for the bone to heal was reduced but also that the cartilage tissue in all the damaged areas began to fully recover within a month of the treatment. This is because of the vast amounts of minerals present in Shilajit which helped the bones in the absorption of the minerals faster and more efficiently.
Makes your heart healthier and blood pure
Iron and Copper are some of the most common minerals in Shilajit both of which are especially important when it comes to blood. Iron itself gives blood a distinct rusted colour. This heavy presence of Iron and Copper helps increase the amount of oxygen carried to different parts of the body. Customarily, in the past, Shilajit was used to treat anaemia thanks to the blood-supportive nutrients it possesses. Mutually with calcium, the heartbeat, and the pressure inside and outside of cells are regulated. Zinc is also a major mineral found in Shilajit that plays a major role in regulating the function of the heart, blood vessels, cholesterol, as well as blood sugar levels and metabolism.
Enhances peak physical performance
Because Shilajit is a terrific stimulant, it was officially used by the Soviet military, Olympic, and space teams. It works as a natural rejuvenator after a workout and is used to decrease physical weakness and improve stamina. Shilajit improves healthy blood circulation by providing many building blocks for healthy blood cell formation, which in turn aids better oxygen transport as well as the removal of CO2 and lactic acid from the muscles. The mineral arginine is also present in Shilajit along with many other amino acids that help in building muscle mass. Arginine also directly increases the fusion of nitric oxide in muscle tissue, which increases the flow in blood vessels and has been associated with promoting increased energy production, healthier muscle function, better muscle glucose uptake, greater fat breakdown, and increased muscle strength when taken in combination with muscle-building exercise.
Improves your blood toxicity levels
A small study published in 2003 found improvements in blood chemistry when test subjects took two grams of Shilajit for 45 days. Researchers noted decreases in serum cholesterol levels and triglycerides relative to the placebo group. The Shilajit group also demonstrated improved antioxidant status. However, study authors tested for—but did not see—changes in blood pressure, pulse rate, or body weight. Along with that, there several benefits to it as well.
It can help cure anaemia, chronic pain, Diabetes, Digestive Disorder, Eczemas osteoarthritis, and Ulcerative Colitis.
Has the ability to cure infertility
A study published in 2010 investigated the effects of Shilajit on 35 infertile men. After taking 100 milligrams of processed Shilajit in capsule form for 90 days, 28 subjects who completed the study showed an increase in normal and total sperm count and sperm motility.
Improves brain function
The almost never-ending list of compounds found in Shilajit help in improving brain functions and the reactivity of the neurons in the brain. This leads to improved cognitive skills, better and enhanced memories and according to some scientific journals some of the compounds in Shilajit can also aid in curing Alzheimer’s.
There are literally plenty of benefits to list but let’s call it for the day. Shilajit is a miraculous cure gifted to us by nature itself, but it can be harmful too. Some compounds in Shilajit may cause low blood pressure, so it is not advised for people with severe heart conditions. Apart from that self-medication is generally wrong, so work with a doctor to make the best plan for you!
