Shilajit is a rock-like substance that is found in the mountainous regions of Asia. When the weather gets hot, this tar-like substance oozes out from the mountains. Shilajit takes hundreds of years to form, and comes from plants that decompose combined with the activity of microorganisms. It is incredibly mineral-rich and known for its numerous health benefits.
One of the main health benefits that can be found when using shilajit is its ability to slow down the aging process in a number of ways.

There are a number of anti-oxidants as well that help keep the immune system strong keeping diseases away.
