Autumn’s Immunity Boost: Preparing for Winter with Shilajit

Autumn’s Immunity Boost: Preparing for Winter with Shilajit

10 Ways Shilajit can help boost immunity for Autumn and Winter transitions.

As the leaves change colour and temperatures drop, Autumn signals the transition from the warm, carefree days of summer to the chilly embrace of winter. While many of us enjoy the cozy vibes of Autumn (or fall, for all you Americans and Canadians out there!), it’s also a crucial time to prepare our bodies for the upcoming cold and flu season. As with all natural supplements, taking gradually and regularly is the best way to take them until we see the benefits. Preparing your health and immunity during the Autumn season ensures a smooth transition of seasons. 

One way to fortify your immunity and stay healthy during this transition is by incorporating the ancient ‘herbal’ remedy known as Shilajit into your daily routine. It is actually a substance that oozes from rocks in mountainous regions, the most famous is that of the Himalayas.

Most people start wanting to improve their immunity once winter hits, yet it is best to prepare your body before, you will be amazed at how different you feel this winter if you start preparing in Autumn (obviously its best to look after your health all year round, but we know what happens as the weather starts to shift and you are worried about the winter chills and winter blues).

How Nature Empowered Shilajit Resin Can Help?

In Eastern medicine traditions, whether it is Ayurveda, Unani-Tibb, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Tibetan and more, they encouraged a lifestyle to journey alongside the seasons and take foods and herbs that support you through that season.

The Seasonal Immunity Challenge

Autumn brings not only picturesque landscapes but also a shift in our lifestyle and


habits. The days become shorter, and the nights grow longer, leading to reduced exposure to sunlight. This reduction in sunlight can lead to lower levels of vitamin D (which is actually a hormone), plays a vital role in immune function and also our feel good factor as well as our bone health. Additionally, the drop in temperature encourages us to spend more time indoors, increasing our exposure to indoor pollutants, electromagnetic radiation and germs.

These factors can weaken our immune system, making us more susceptible to seasonal illnesses like the common cold and the flu. That's why it's essential to take proactive steps to boost our immunity during this transitional period.

Introducing Shilajit: Nature’s Immunity Enhancer

Shilajit is a resinous substance that oozes from the rocks of the Himalayan mountains and other mountain ranges. This unique natural substance has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine to promote health and vitality. Shilajit is rich in fulvic acid, minerals, and other bioactive compounds that can help strengthen your immune system and prepare your body for the challenges of winter.

Here’s 10 ways Shilajit can boost your immunity to help you through Autumn and Winter:

  1. Detoxification:

Nature Empowered Shilajit has natural detoxifying properties and may help remove toxins and heavy metals from the body. This cleansing effect can contribute to better overall health and a strengthened immune response, ready for the winter season.

  1. Rich in Nutrients and Essential Minerals:

Shilajit is a potent source of essential minerals like zinc, iron, magnesium, and selenium, all of which are crucial for the functioning of the immune function. These minerals help support the production and activity of immune cells, ensuring your body is better equipped to fight off infections. For example, zinc is involved in the development and activation of immune cells, while selenium helps protect immune cells from oxidative damage.

  1. Powerful Antioxidant Properties:

The Autumn and Winter season also bring an increase in oxidative stress due to environmental changes and potential exposure to illness. Nature Empowered Shilajit is packed with antioxidants, such as fulvic acid, that help combat free radicals and reduce oxidative stress. Free radicals can cause cellular damage and weaken the immune system. By reducing oxidative stress, Shilajit can help protect your immune cells from damage and keep your immune system functioning optimally. This is especially important for moving from the Autumn to the Winter season.

  1. Anti-inflammatory Effects:

Chronic inflammation can suppress the immune system and make the body more susceptible to infections. Shilajit has been reported to possess anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation and support overall immune function

  1. Immune Modulation:

Shilajit has been found to have immunomodulatory effects. This means it can help regulate the immune system's response, enhancing the activity of immune cells when needed, such as during an infection, while also preventing excessive immune responses that can lead to inflammation.

  1. Aids in Improving Blood Circulation:

Shilajit acts as a blood cleanser, which in turn helps the blood circulation in your


body. It’s great for helping to remove toxins from your body as well as help to regulate blood sugar levels (if on medication or underlying health conditions, always seek advice from a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement). Many people have reported that after taking Shilajit for a few weeks that the coldness they may feel in their hands and feet starts to improve, as their circulation improves and much report to feeling less cold. A perfect companion for moving from Autumn to Winter season.

  1. Helps to Strengthen Bones:

As we move into the Autumn season, then again into Winter season, where we have the fewest daylight hours, this can impact bone health. Shilajit is replete with minerals, calcium and phytochemicals that help your bones. It helps to reduce inflammation in the body to help to preserve bone density.  It also may help to enhance bone mineralisation. Many common joint issues such as knee pain and back pain worsen in winter and colder weather. Shilajit can help these conditions from worsening. Whether you have arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, it is worth trying Shilajit to experience the benefits for yourself (remember to consult a healthcare professional if on medication or with these underlying health conditions).

  1. Helps Improved Metabolism:

As we transition from the Autumn to Winter season, we usually feel more inactive and are less likely to spend longer time outdoors. Many people consume more food during the winter season especially with festivities such as Christmas, while having a more inactive lifestyle. Taking Nature Empowered Shilajit regularly can help improve metabolism and help with absorption of nutrients from food. Maintaining a strong and healthy metabolism is essential in winter as it helps clear toxins from the body, improves blood circulation, improves stress and mood and increases immunity and energy in the body, to get you through the winter blues.

  1. Helps with Winter Blues and Stress:

Shilajit is also known to reduce stress and anxiety as its an adaptogen, It contains fulvic acid that helps boost serotonin, the happy hormone to help alleviate low moods. It also helps improve brain functions and helps focus and productivity,

  1. Energy and Vitality 

Autumn can sometimes bring feelings of lethargy and fatigue, especially with the decrease in daylight hours, meaning less Vitamin D which we synthesize from sunlight. Shilajit has a reputation for boosting energy levels and increasing overall vitality. As a powerful antioxidant, it can help you feel more energetic, which means you're more likely to engage in physical activity, which can further support your immune system.

Incorporating Shilajit into Your Routine:

Now that you understand the potential benefits of Shilajit for your immunity, here are some ways to incorporate it into your daily routine.

  1. Pure Shilajit Resin: At Nature Empowered we supply premium quality Shilajit resin. It is advised to always follow the recommended dosage; you can read more in our book or the FAQ here. If you have any underlying health conditions or are on medication please consult a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement.
  2. Shilajit Tea: Add a small amount (start with a rice grain amount and build up over time to a pea sized amount) into your herbal tea or just into warm water. Be warned it has a strong, metallic, earthy taste, so you may want to add a dash of honey to taste (and some ghee to help absorption). You do get used to the taste over time, especially when you start noticing the health benefits.
  3. Mix ghee and honey: Mix it with some ghee and or honey in a spoon and take.
  4. Mix it in with some warm milk: It can be plant based (and you can optionally add some ghee or honey and blend).
