Himalayan Shilajit is considered to be one of the main ingredients of Ayurveda (Indian medicine) and its use dates back thousands of years. However, research on this substance is in its initial stages but the most accepted theory seems to be about 50 million years ago, the Indian continent collided into Asia, forming mountainous regions of Himalayas that trapped plants and organic matter by layers of rock. The pressure from the weight of the mountains and the extreme temperature changes has cultured the plants into highly nutrient-rich rocky-tar which is Himalayan Shilajit.
It is observed that the use of shilajit can also increase testosterone levels, basically, testosterone in men is the primary sex hormone and it can go off balance for a number of reasons. When it does, it negatively affects men in terms of reduced sex drive, increased general body inflammation and mood swings. Shilajit promotes healthy semen production and slightly boost hemoglobin levels.
‘Natural Herbs Shop’ has collected a study which was conducted in 2010 by Indian researchers who gave their 35 infertile test-subjects a daily dose of 200mg of shilajit extract for 90 consecutive days. When the hormone and sperm parameters were compared from day 1 to day 90, the research noted following improvements;
- Total sperm count rose by 61%.
- Sperm quality increased by 37%.
- Serum testosterone levels increased by 23%, and FSH rose by 9%.
- Markers of oxidation damage also went down, whereas hemoglobin slightly increased.
One more recent study from 2015 showed that in healthy volunteers aged between 45-55 years, 250mg/day of shilajit extract for 90 days was able to;
- Increase total-testosterone levels by 20%
- Increase free-testosterone levels by 19%
- Boost DHEA levels by 31% while maintaining normal LH and FSH levels.
