What is Shilajit?
Shilajit is a natural substance similar to tar. It can range in color from whitish to very dark brown. It contains minerals as well as fulvic acid, a nutrient that appears in some soils and helps plants and soil microbes thrive. Shilajit is sometimes called mineral wax. There are mineral substances similar to shilajit called tar deposits, which ultimately come from sediment. However, it is thought that shilajit is formed from vegetable products.
