Hepatica Shilajit is a dietary supplement in the composition of which there is a concentrated extract from Shilajit, standardized for the content of 20% of fulvic acids. Natural origin and rich chemical composition of the active substance contained in the preparation makes it an ideal agent to support health and multilevel functioning of the organism.
Shilajit is a natural composition produced by nature, composed of primeval plants creating speleothems in Himalayan caves. As a result of the process of humification (breakdown and secondary synthesis) lasting hundreds years, an exceptional phytocomplex came into being, for centuries used as a medicine and as a standard element of the diets of people living in Nepal and North India.
Laboratory analyses proved that in the composition of Shilajit almost all the most important minerals can be found (among others magnesium, iron, copper, chromium, manganese, cobalt, zinc and many more, in total more than 85 microelements) in the best assimilable ion form. Additionally, there are vitamins (A, the complex of vitamins from B and C groups), polyphenols, phospholipids, amino acids and plant sterols. Fulvic and humic acids have the highest therapeutic value present in Shilajit.
Shilajit has a positive influence on many systems in the human organism. It supplements the deficits of micro and macroelements, increases biological activity of cells, strengthens natural defense mechanisms of the organism, adds energy and vitality.
Shilajit supports natural defense mechanisms of the organism and modulates the immune system. It positively influences the number of cells directed to the protection of the organism against pathogens – it increases the population of macrophages, stimulates the growth and development of lymphocytes T.
It intensifies the process of phagocytosis, which is the most effective method of protecting the organism against disease-causing bacteria and it consists in the absorption of the bacteria by specialized cells of the immune system.
Shilajit increases the production of interleukin 1 (IL-1) – one of the most important signaling cytokines in the immune system. Due to its strong anti-inflammatory and anticancer effect, interleukin 1 is perceived to be a potential medicine and it is the subject of intensive clinical research.
Benefits for mental well-being
Shilajit works perfectly in the situations of long-lasting stress and tension. It has nootropic and adaptogen effect. It effectively strengthens memory and cognitive functions, but it also improves mood and supports the organism in the process of adaptation to hard conditions.
The research carried out on rodents confirmed the influence of Shilajit on the level of monoamines. Thanks to increasing the level of dopamine and norepinephrine, cognitive functions are improved and the level of energy, motivation and the ability to concentrate are increased. The part of the research suggests that thanks to Shilajit the production of serotonin is also increased , which would explain mood elevation and the feeling of pleasure among the users of Shilajit.
Shilajit affects the cholinergic system. It inhibits the activity of acetylcholinesterase, thanks to which the amount of acetylcholine in the brain is increased. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that is the most crucial for memory, especially long-term memory.
Some researchers claim that Shilajit contains the substances that calm down the central nervous system, therefore it may be used in the therapy of anxiety disorders. It is suggested that Shilajit is a natural GABA-mimetic, therefore it causes sedation, reduction of anxiety and introduces the organism into the state of relaxation.
Shilajit for physically active people
Shilajit works well in the period of increased physical effort. By supporting mitochondrial metabolism, it allows to effectively utilize fats and carbohydrates to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It works perfectly especially when combined with coenzyme Q10 – it improves its delivery to mitochondria and thanks to this it ensures even bigger production of cellular energy. More ATP means reduced fatigue and increased physical efficiency of the organism.
There are many studies that document the positive influence of Shilajit on sports condition and form. This compound is very popular among Russian and East European sportsmen. Tests carried out on physically active people proved that using Shilajit allows to increase training load by 30%. It happens without any harm to the organism, which was confirmed by biochemical and hormonal test results of training people.
Micro and macroelements as well as trace elements contained in Shilajit play a range of important functions in the organism and are essential coenzymes for growth and cell differentiation processes. Such natural supplementation of nutrients allows to maintain muscle tissue and all the organism’s systems in good form.
There is yet another aspect of benefits stemming from using Shilajit in sports supplementation. It concerns adaptogen properties of Shilajit. This compound has a tonic effect on the nervous system, it mitigates stress consequences (also the physical stress, caused by intensive effort) and prevents the disorders dependent on the improver hormone secretion (e.g. catabolic cortisol).
Harmonization of the hormonal system
Shilajit brings many benefits to the hormonal system, both female and male. In women it contributes to stabilizing hormone secretion, helps to regulate menstrual cycle and reduces the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.
What is important from the point of view of men is the support of testosterone production thanks to Shilajit. Moreover, it intensifies the process of spermatogenesis, increases the number of sperm cells, positively influences their quality and mobility. The positive influence of Shilajit on the urogenital system has also been noticed. This compound helps to mitigate the infections of the urinary track and supports the health of prostate.
Among Tibetans, Shilajit is treated as a natural aphrodisiac, which supports libido and prevents sexual dysfunctions.
Shilajit helps to maintain proper condition of the skeletal system. It stimulates cells to synthesize calcium compounds, intensifies the cycles of mineral exchange in the system, accelerates the process of healing bone fractures.
Shilajit facilitates wound healing, stimulates the regeneration of skin damages and prevents scar creation.
Shilajit supports glucose metabolism. Fulvic acid contained in it prevents damages of pancreas beta-cells made by free radicals. Thanks to this its work is increased and insulin secretion is regulated.
Summing up, Shilajit Extract is a universal supplement supporting health in many different ways. It is recommended to people aiming at strengthening physical and mental condition. It will work perfectly in the states of fatigue and exhaustion. It contains only natural substances, safe for the organism, with very well-documented pro-health properties.

The standard dosage in supplementation is 220 mg to 500 mg. The recommended use is 1 or 2 capsules a day about 30 minutes before a meal. Traditionally, shilajit is taken with milk, which ensures better absorption of active substances.
Combining shilajit with coenzyme Q10 is remarkably beneficial. Clinical tests have demonstrated that the combination grants an extraordinarily high increase in cell energy production.
