Before you start using mineral pitch resin (also known as Shilajit, Moomiyo or Pürblack) you actually have to know that you’re using genuine and high quality resin. If there are any doubts that the mineral pitch you are using is not genuine it is better not to use it at all. In future articles, we will look into the forms and types of shilajit resins (mineral pitch) currently available, the vital importance of using only high-quality preparations, reliable sources, how to recognize good quality products, and the scams and shortcuts some disreputable suppliers have resorted to, rather than take the trouble to provide a truly top-grade product.
For the moment, though, we’ll assume you have procured a supply of resin, of excellent quality. Pürblack for example. Now what do you do with your new treasure?
The simplest answer to that would be, “Follow the instructions that came with it.” And indeed, you could – and should. It’s true that your supply of shilajit should be accompanied by detailed instructions on how to use it for varying purposes. For example when you are getting Pürblack, you will receive an instruction circle with dosage. If you are using mineral pitch on the recommendation of a holistic practitioner, he or she will have some instructions for you, too – and of course you should follow those instructions closely.
Shilajit may be taken at any time, for general health, increased energy, and as a prophylactic measure. Used in this way, it would normally be taken once or twice a day. If you are taking Pürblack Live Resin it is best to use it either in the morning or in the evening. It is timed to support a functional time cycle of your body. If you are taking Pürblack in the morning it is recommended before food. In the evenings Pürblack should be taken 30 or 40 minutes after food and about one hour before you go to sleep. This is an ideal and if you cannot follow it you can consume the resin any time of the day at your convenience.
High-quality resin has been found to be non-toxic, even in doses well beyond those necessary for a health supporting effects. According to research, it is not carcinogenic, and does not pose any danger of reproductive harm, including inhibition or prevention of conception.
It should be noted that shilajit is not a panacea. It has also been found to be highly effective when taken along other herbs or extracts as part of a comprehensive program.
The most common way to use mineral pitch resin (a.k.a. Shilajit or Moomiyo) is by ingestion – taking it by mouth. The two most common forms of commercially available shilajit are powder, and a thick resin or paste. The resin is the more natural, less fabricated of the two forms. Many consider that since it is therefore closer to its native state, shilajit in resin form is more effective. Nevertheless again any form should be procured only from reputable suppliers as 98-99% of mineral pitch products (shilajit, moomiyo, salajeet, etc.) are imitation products.
Mineral pitch can be ingested all by itself, just as it comes from its packaging. Because of its pungent taste and smoky smell, though, most users prefer to take it mixed with something else. Two classic mediums to dissolve the resin are water and milk. One can also use teas, nut milks, coffee, even honey and liquid chocolate. Using warm liquid will often make the resin dissolve more rapidly. Pürblack should not be taken in liquids warmer than natural body temperature or if you want to be precise the temperature should not be exceed 102°F. This is because Pürblack is purified in a way, which allows us to make it as close to its natural state as possible. It is a third and latest generation resin (also known as Shilajit, Moomiyo or Salajeet) with heat sensitive compounds intact.
When making a shilajit solution, it is best to make only enough for immediate use. If there is any left over, though, it can be kept refrigerated in a sealed container.
Shilajit can be mixed with other superfoods or herbs and taken as a tonic elixir. Taking it in such combinations will increase effectiveness of the herbs, amplified and harmonized by the resin.
Shilajit powder sometimes comes in capsules. Of course the capsules may be swallowed directly, but they can also be carefully pulled apart and emptied, so that the powder can be used directly. The danger of capsules is that they are usually filled with imitation product.
To summarize, there are only three things to remember:
- Use only the highest quality resin available
- Chose dosage which suits you the best
- Dissolve it in liquid ideally the purest water you can get
