Shilajit also goes by the name "Mineral Pitch" and "Mineral Wax" in English. It is a sticky substance that can be found in Himalayan rocks primarily. Shilajit develops by the slow decomposition of plants over centuries. It is believed to possess medicinal properties and therefore finds its usage in dietary supplements. Shilajit is a common ingredient in Ayurvedic medicines that can positively affect the overall health of an individual.
