Shilajit: An Ayurvedic Panacea for Modern Era

Dr. Kriti Soni [2] | Ankit Sinha [3]

Abstract: Ayurveda for more than 3000 years has mentioned various products that are well known and are still being consumed that enrich our lives. Among them, one of the most important is Shilajit. In the modern era, shilajit is considered a herbal medicine, that is a synthesis of the therapeutic experiences of generations of practising physicians of indigenous systems of medicine for hundreds of years. Shilajit is a sticky exudate from rock layers in high - altitude zones of mountains, particularly in the rocks of the Himalayas. Generally found in the mountainous regions of India and other countries like Russia, China, Pakistan, Nepal, Afghanistan, and Tibet. Shilajit primarily contains humic compounds including fulvic acid, humic acid, and humin, and it is still being researched and assessed how to extract it from different varieties of shilajit using TLC and HPLC procedures. It is a well - researched substance with traditional formulas and medicinal properties in the Ayurvedic literature. Numerous clinical research on its health advantages have been conducted, and they offer compelling proof of its widespread acceptance. Additionally, the still - used traditional techniques for processing shilajit are mentioned.
