What is Shilajit? (TruZMA related)

  1. What is Shilajit? (TruZMA related)


    Shilajit (TruFulvicŪ)

    Shilajit is a potent substance mostly found in the Himalayas region formed by microorganisms decomposing plant materials in the region (1). Shilajit has been a long time staple of those practicing Ayurveda medicine when it comes to sexual health. Fulvic acid is thought to be the main active among the many components (humic acids) in Shilajit (2).

    Research in men has shown that Shilajit can increase levels of follicle-stimulating hormone, serum testosterone, and improve sperm quality in infertile men (3). New research in healthy human males has shown that Shilajit significantly increased total testosterone levels by 20%, and free testosterone levels by 19% when compared with the control group over the course of 90 days (4).

    Shilajit has excellent research behind it showing that it is safe in humans (3, 4), and research on rats showed no adverse effects at a human equivalent dose of 29 grams a day (in a 70 kg human) for 91 days (5).

  3. Since I'm sure women take ZMA products too - is this stuff safe for women to take? I would assume so, since it's not adding T, just increasing the body's natural production?

  4. just started me some Shilajit 250
