As I finished my Ashtanga practice, instead of feeling light, I felt grumpy; my practice didn’t feel smooth and I lacked quiet a bit of energy. I just wanted to find something that is natural and healing and helps to keep my energy level constant and lubricate my joints more. I found Shilajit – also called Shilajitu in Ayurveda.
Shilajit is a dark brown color substance / powder which is found in Atai or Himalayan mountains and it basically seeps through the cracks in the rocks due to the heat of the sun.It has been known as a famous adaptogen fightging stress and anxiety. Shilajit containing 85 ionic minerals has the following benefits
- Anti- inflammatory
- Reduces pain
- Fights free radicals and helps oxidation of blood cells
- It can relieve gastritis,constipation and indigestion
- It maintains good functions of the liver;
- It increases strength, stamina and is great for athletes
- It is also known to be a great Aphrodisiac
Take 1/2 or 1/4 teaspoon in a glass of water or milk or smoothie everyday and feel the difference!! You can buy Shilajit here !
Nature has it’s own source to heal and make you better, please don’t stack yourself with anti-biotics or any unwanted pain medications.
Hope this helps all you Ashtangi’s , atheletes and anyone who wants to be healthy!
