How Long Does It Take for Shilajit to Work?

This is such a common question that is asked, how long does it take to see benefits using Shilajit?

Shilajit is a natural resin commonly used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine as well as Chinese, Tibetan and other Eastern medicine. It is believed to offer a wide range of health benefits, including improved energy levels, vitality and overall well-being and immunity.

The time it takes for Shilajit to work can vary to person to person and depends on several factors:

  1. Dosage: It is better to start on smaller dose, a rice-grain sized amount and build up to a pea sized amount. Some people may experience benefits quickly while with others it takes more time. It depends on your current state of health, how much toxins you have in your body and other factors. Taking a higher amount is not necessarily beneficial and may cause adverse side effects.
  1. Quality: The quality and authenticity of the Shilajit product you can use will significantly impact how quickly you notice its effects. High-quality, pure Shilajit is more likely to provide quicker and more noticeable results such as our Nature Empowered Premium Shilajit Resin.
  1. Individual Health: Your individual health, metabolism, and current health conditions can also influence how long it takes for Shilajit to work. Some people may experience benefits relatively quickly, within a few days, while others may require more time within a few weeks to a few months.
  1. Reason for taking: It also depends on the reason you are taking Shilajit. Some people take it for improved energy and they may notice this within the first few days to few weeks. Others may take it for reduced inflammation

    and improved immunity, this may take longer. As with any herbal supplement, it usually takes approximately three months to notice full benefits. With any herbal supplement, you should be patient and consistent, be aware of how your body feels and with any complementary herbal supplement, effects may vary from person to person. If you have any underlying health conditions, or are on medication, it’s essential you consult your healthcare provider before starting any new supplement.
  1. Lifestyle factors: Lifestyle factors influence how Shilajit works. People who have a more healthier lifestyle with a nutritious diet and exercise and abstain from bad habits like smoking and binge drinking that can obstruct the body’s natural functions may see faster results. Age also plays a part; the older you are the longer it may take to see results. A healthy person will see quicker results than someone who is unhealthy.
  1. How you take Shilajit may also effect it: It is recommended to take on an empty stomach first thing in the morning for optimal absorption. Taking it 20-30 minute before a meal can help it optimally be absorbed into the body.

What is the Time-frame for Shilajit to Work?

Usually within a few weeks of taking Shilajit, many people start to feel its positive effects. Generally people tend to feel more energetic, happier mood and more focus.

Over time, months of Shilajit use can help well-being, heart health, immunity and brain (cognitive) function.

The affects may differ from person to person and also timescales can vary depending on the factors mentioned above.

Side Effects and Precautions:

While Shilajit is generally considered safe for consumption, as with all herbal food supplements, there can be some potential side effects, especially if you are using a low quality product or are not sticking to the recommended daily dosage. Also for some people they may have to reduce even the low recommended daily dose as it could be too potent for their body. Some side effects may be due to to the body purging toxins from the body.

Possible side effects can include: dizziness, diarrhoea and increased heart rate. If you experience any of these side effects or others, we recommend you stop consuming Shilajit and consult your health care provider. It is essential you consult your healthcare provider before taking Shilajit if you have any underlying health conditions or are taking any medications.

To Summarise:

Shilajit is known for its beneficial therapeutic qualities for thousands of years. The timescale it takes to work and how it works can depend on a number of variables including quality of the product, age, diet, health and lifestyle of the person. It's vital to use with caution and if you have any underlying medical health conditions or are on medication then to consult a healthcare professional before use.

Although results may not be immediate, the long-term health benefits and enhancement of energy levels are worth the persistence.
