Recent research has shown that it is especially effective at boosting testosterone and fertility in men. In a clinical trial of healthy men, 250mg of purified Shilajit was taken twice a day.

After 3 months it was found that free testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEAS) had significantly increased. Shilajit is absorbed into the testes where it can reduce oxidative damage and may even increase sperm production.

Shilajit for heart health: Shilajit is also cardio-protective, acting to increase levels of the body’s master antioxidant glutathione and providing the body with many other heart healthy nutrients. Shilajit is well known in Ayurveda for strengthening the heart and bringing down hypertension (high blood pressure).

In one study, Shilajit was shown to mimic the para-sympathetic nervous system, which is the body’s relaxation state or ‘rest and digest state’ which is the opposite of the  “fight or flight” (sympathetic nervous system), producing a state of calm and relaxation thus lowering heart rate and blood pressure.

  1. Shilajit for Alzheimers and Parkinson’s disease: Shilajit may also help to reduce the risk of Alzheimers disease. In Alzheimer’s patients, there is an increase of a certain protein called the amyloid beta protein which leads to amyloid plaques in the brain. A study states that the fulvic acid present in Shilajit can reduce the formation of amyloid plaques in the brain. Alzheimer's disease is an age-related, irreversible, nervous disorder. Some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are memory loss and a change in behaviour. Shilajit helps to reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease by balancing Vata dosha.

It also has Rasayana (rejuvenating) property that reduces weakness of the nervous system and improves its functioning. Proteins such as beta-anyloid plague and tau can build up over time and lead to neuronal dysfunction and early cell death. Prolonged build- up of these proteins can eventually lead to degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.In the brain there is a neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine.

This enzyme is important for memory, concentration and overall  brain function. Stress and aging can decrease levels of this enzyme. Shilajit works to promote healthy levels of this enzyme, so protecting the brain from degeneration. In people with Parkinson’s disease, the levels of dopamine are reduced. Shilajit resin has been found to increase dopamine levels.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in regulating pleasure, reward, motivation, learning and various cognitive and motor functions in the brain and nervous system Shilajit also has the ability to restore the electrical activity of body cells and therefore can help slow down the progression of Alzheimers. Increased dopamine levels can also play a part in reducing anxiety and help cope with the negative effects of stress on the body.

It is worth noting that research studies are still in their early stages for Shilajit, but they show promising results.

Shilajit and Mitochondria (The Energy Powerhouse):

One of the ways Shilajit boosts energy in the body is through increasing the function of the mitochondria.  The mitochondria is the power source, or battery of the cells in the body.

Mitochondria (the power generators of the cells) converts various nutrients and oxygen into adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is known as the ‘molecular currency’ of intracellular energy transfer.

The more of this ‘currency’ you spend, the less energy you have to expend. By increasing ATP, Shilajit functions as a natural energy booster, increases stamina and is taken by many athletes to enhance performance.

Studies have also found that combining Shilajit with Coenzyme Q10 boosts the efficient of CoQ10 (a cellular antioxidant in the body), CoQ10 fuels cellular energy by boosting mitochondria function, which declines as we age. Shilajit with CoQ10 enhances mitochondrial health and it’s been shown to elevate the body’s ATP, its primary source of energy. 

It's important to note that while Shilajit has a long history of traditional use and some promising research, more comprehensive scientific studies are needed to fully understand its benefits, mechanisms of action, and potential side effects.
