Process

Shilajit forms over several million years as plant and other organic matter is trapped between layers of mountain rock. Under the weight of the mountains, pressure and weather cycles, the plants and organic matter are slowly transformed into mineral rich pitch. Our shilajit originates in altitudes between 16,000 and 18,000 feet, where the environment is pristine and void of pollutants, fertilizers and chemicals. During the summer months, the mountains heat up and the shilajit raw material (asphaltum) warms, becomes viscous and can be seen seeping between cracks in the layers of rock. People from the local communities travel up the mountains each summer and collect the shilajit by hand, as they have been doing for generations. Once the shilajit material has been collected. it is sent to a local facility where it is extracted 5:1. The extraction process must be done repetitively to remove impurities and concentrate the shilajit. After the shilajit concentrate is made, it is dried, milled and sifted until it is uniform in size. Our shilajit contains 5% fulvic acid, and has extremely low trace lead levels compared to other products on the market.
