Shilajit is a thick tar-like chewy substance that oozes from rocks in certain parts of the world. The origin of Shilajit is the plants and herbs that go through a natural transition process due to climatic changes. Nobody exactly knows the transition period but it certainly takes decades to convert the plants and herbs into what we call Shilajit. Shilajit contains more than 85 minerals and compounds. Fulvic acid is the most important ingredient of Shilajit. It is produced as a result of the decomposition of organic substances. Fulvic acid has a number of properties, such as energy boosting, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and metal dissolving (into ions) properties. A pure sample of Shilajit contains more than 60% Fulvic acid. Other important Shilajit ingredients include iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, copper, magnesium, manganese, chromium, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin E, dibenzo-alpha pyrone, silicon, antimony, silver, sulfur, retinol, iodine, humic acid, oxalic acid, benzoic acid, tannic acid, glycosides, and phenolic acid.
