Uzbek shilajit

Shilajit means "Conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness". It is used in Ayurvedic medicine as an herbal rejuvenator, nerve tonic and natural stimulator.

Shilajit (Mummyo, Moomiyo, Mineral Pitch) is perhaps the most potent rejuvenator and anti-aging substance ever known. Attributed with many magical properties, Shilajit is found predominately in the Himalayan region bordering India, China, Tibet and parts of Central Asia.

The existence and use of Shilajit was a closely guarded secret of Himalayan Yogis for many centuries. The Indian Yogis considered Shilajit as God's gift and a nectar of longevity. Ancient Indian scriptures mention the wonderful powers of Shilajit in tackling most of the ailments of body and mind.

Benefits of Shilajit:

To locate the origins of Shilajit, one would have to go back at least 2500 years to the time of the ancient Greek scientist and philosopher Aristotle. He proposed and accurately described the first procedures for the use of Shilajit and its preparation in grape juice, honey and milk. Glorious emperors of the past like Alexander the Great, Tamerlane, and Genghis Khan added Shilajit to the rations of their generals, personal guards and special units.
