Rooted in Traditional Medicine
Shilajit is rooted in Ayurveda—traditional Indian medicine. In Ayurvada, Shilajit considered a panacea Rasāyana. A Rasāyana has a very similar function as an adaptogen, differing in that a Rasāyana is considered to contain more curative and therapeutic properties.
Rasāyana translates literally into English as "the path of essence." Rasa is Sanskrit for essence and ayana is Sanskrit for path.
In usage, Rasāyana translates as a "practical reversal of the aging process."
Shilajit is used as a panacea Rasāyana in Ayurveda, used to treat the most stubborn diseases as well as a powerful anti-aging tonic.
Ayurvedic principles state that Shilajit rejuvenates all of the body's systems. So much so that Ayurvedic practitioners claim "that there is hardly any curable disease that cannot be controlled or cured with the aid of Shilajit."
According to legend, the name Shilajit means "the destroyer of weakness, the conqueror of mountains." The name is appropriate, whether it is a true translation or more of a subtitle. Local names abound for Shilajit in the different areas where it is harvested and used, including pahar-ki-pasina (the sweat of mountains), paharki-khoon (mountain blood), and shilaras (rock juice).
As a folk medicine and throughout Ayurveda, Shilajit has been used as a rejuvenating adaptogen for 3000 years.
Shilajit is equally suitable — and restorative — for men and women, and it is regarded as one of the most potent herbs available for men, with Ayurvedic practitioners citing its use as an Ayurvedic treatment for erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, thin sperm, and low sperm count.*
This herb is ideal for anyone looking for a deeply nourishing longevity tonic that replenishes, restores, and builds the body.*

Shilajit and Ayurvedic Tradition
Shilajit, a rare exude used in Ayurvedic medicine, is known traditionally as "The Destroyer of Weakness, the Conqueror of Mountains and it has earned the reputation today as "Indian Viagra. Shilajit has been used as a male sexual tonic, but has proven suitable for both men and women. According to Indian folklore, Shilajit makes the body as "strong as a rock.
Shilajit is a powerful tonic, or rasayana, with adaptogenic benefits. Shilajit was never intended to target or be of specific interest to men, but centuries of use and decades of scientific research makes Shilajit particularly interesting for male reproductive and sexual health.
In Ayurveda tradition, Shilajit is used as a remedy for almost any illness or condition that can affect the human body. It is said to enhance the benefits of other herbal remedies as well. Among the more common diseases that Ayurveda physicians would treat with Shilajit are diabetes, digestive disorders, obesity, sexual inadequacy and chronic fatigue. In addition to its ability to enhance the positive effects of other herbal remedies, Shilajit is said to be able to counteract any toxic effects of other herbs as well.
The traditional Ayurveda Shilajit uses and benefits include:
- Tonify and fortify the body;
- Modulate the immune system;
- Fat metabolism;
- Increased lung function;
- Promotes healthy menstruation;
- Increase the actions and benefits of other herbs;
- Replenish Qi and Jing;
- Enhance sense of self and spirit.*
Himalayan Shilajit and Testosterone
Shilajit has long been used to promote vitality, libido, and virility in men.
The research into the effects of Shilajit supplementation on testosterone levels and sperm count is incredibly compelling, with increases seen not just in testosterone levels but also in free (biologically active) testosterone levels.
Additionally, increases throughout the 90-treatment program were observed in Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), and DHEA.
Elevated levels of LH and FSH indicate how Shilajit works with the body—in true adaptogenic function—to increase testosterone production and that the effects are stable with sustained activation of the hypothalamus - pituitary - testicular axis.
This sustained action of Shilajit is in stark contrast to many popular nutraceuticals (including ZMA/ Zinc Magnesium Aspartate), which show an initial bump in testosterone production followed by a quick leveling out and return to baseline levels.
In a double-blind study using a relatively small dose of Shilajit (one 250 mg capsule twice daily), researchers (Pandit et al) found dramatic increases in testosterone over a 90-day period in otherwise healthy middle aged men.

How to Use Tonic and Adaptogenic Herbs
Shilajit is an adaptogenic and tonic herb, and so being, consistency and time are vital in receiving the full benefits of it.
Adaptogens and tonics are herbs which work with the body to produce change and adaptation. In fact, the root word in "adaptogen" is adapt. This type of change—this type of adaptation—requires dedication, consistency, and time, but it is also the most profound and the most beneficial.
Before evaluating the effectiveness of any adaptogen or tonic, we advocate a trial of between four and six weeks of daily use.
Similar to exercise, while a single workout is good for you and will most likely make you feel better, no real change will be seen without dedication, consistency, and time.
RAW Forest Foods offers a full 60 days refund policy on all products. This extended refund policy allows ample time for a customer to judge the effectiveness of these types of products.
And as the saying goes, "Give yourself enough time to be successful." And this applies to adaptogens, too.
Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use if safety seal is damaged or missing. Store at room temperature.
Herb cycling schedules can be beneficial when healing. If you prefer to rotate your adaptogenic, pro-androgenic, and tonic herbs, we suggest a schedule of five days on, and two days off, or four weeks on and one week off. *
