Shilajit Production

In the Himalayan region known as Gangotri (the northern region of the Ganga river), shilajit drips from the rocks. In other areas, foot-long scorpions sting the rocks. The poison from their stingers causes the Shilajit to ooze from the stones. In still other places, it appears in coagulated form. Monkeys use this natural remedy for various health ailments. They stay healthy and live a long time


Do not use with high uric acid count, or with febrile diseases
