Shilajit - "Secret of the ages"
In ancient Nepali holy text, Shilajit translates into "the destroyer of weakness".
Shilajit is often referred to as a Rasayana or Rejuvenator.
How was it discovered?
Shilajit has been used for thousands of years and for as many different health problems. It is listed as a healing agent in ancient Sanskrit writings and is used today in Ayurvedic health practices. The discovery is said to be made by Himalayan villagers observing large white monkeys migrate to the mountains in the warm summer months. The monkeys were seen to be chewing a semi-soft substance that flowed from between layers of rock. The villagers attributed the monkey's great strength, longevity and wisdom to the substance. They began to consume it themselves and reported a broad spectrum of improvements in health. It seemed to give them more energy, relieve digestive problems, increase sex drive, improve memory and cognition, improve diabetes, reduce allergies, improve the quality and quantity of life and it seemed to cure all diseases.*
What is it?
FULVIC FACTOR is made from the raw material Shilajit harvested from vertical cliff sides high in the Himalayan mountain range. The Himalayan Mountains were formed from the collision of the sub Asian and Indian continents about 30-50 million years ago. During the collision, dense vegetation, literally entire rain forests, were trapped under millions of tons of pressure, which slowly changed this lush vegetation into a rich bioactive material, which is perhaps the rarest nutrient rich substance found on earth. Ancient in origin and pure beyond measure, shilajit has never been exposed to harmful fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide or pollution. For centuries it has been known as the "Destroyer of Weakness", Builder of Strength - a natural rejuvenator.*

Are there different grades of Shilajit?
Yes. The amount of active ingredients (fulvic acid) in the raw material varies by the region it is harvested from. Raw Shilajit must be purified and concentrated to increase the level of active ingredients. Some products may only contain 3-5% fulvic acid. The best products use a 20%
standardized level of fulvic acid, the highest concentration and purity available; which is what we carry.*
What are the active ingredients in Shilajit?
The primary active ingredients in Shilajit are Fulvic Acids, Dibenzo Alpha Pyrones, Humic Acids and trace minerals. These are produced by microbial action on humus (think of Humus as a nutrient rich soil, like compost). Fulvic Acids are small lattice shaped molecules that act as carriers for the Dibenzo Alpha Pyrones and trace minerals. The Fulvic Acids are "carrier" molecules as they carry other nutrients with them. They are small molecules and are absorbed by plants that need the trace minerals and other nutrients for their own growth. We would then eat the plants (or the animals that ate the plants) and get Fulvic Acids in our diet. However due to modern farming methods the soils our foods are grown on are lacking the beneficial microbes and plant material to produce Fulvic Acids and the soil is planted and harvested too frequently to allow the time needed to produce Humus.*
What makes Fulvic Factor unique compared to other Fulvic Acid products?
The most significant difference is that it is from shilajit. True shilajit contains the therapeutic substance dibenzo-alpha-pyrones. Fulvic acid does not contain dibenzo-alpha-pyrones. Most of the therapeutic and beneficial actions come from the dibenzo-alpha-pyrones. Fulvic Factor is also standardized to 50% fulvic acid to guarantee consistent therapeutic actions. Other fulvic acid products may only contain 3-5% fulvic acid.*
"I have two really great experiences with Fulvic Factor that I would like to share. A few years ago I did some exercises and did something real damaging to my knees. I went to my medical doctor and he said I would have to have about $4,000 work done in repairing the damage. Well, I can't afford that, so I suffer with pain. The week before I started on Fulvic Factor, the pain in my left knee was really bothering me, the worst it ever had been. I have to go up and down the stairs a lot and I was having to hang onto the handrail to help me get upstairs. Since being on the Fulvic Factor the pain has gone away and I find myself running up the stairs with no problem.
The second testimony I would like to share is; I have had a sore inside the tip of my nose that has hung around for over 4 years, I have always been a little nervous about that so every day I will put an anointment on it to keep it at bay. I noticed after being on the Fulvic Factor for about 2 weeks the sore disappeared. At one point I ran out of my product and within a short time the sore in my nose started to come back. So, I ordered another bottle right away and the sore disappeared again. I truly believe in Fulvic Factor!" - Barbara, OR*
The following information was taken from Dr. Michael Hartman’s Website: “I cannot predict if Shilajit will help you with your specific health problem. However, There is a lot of research proving Shilajit can help a broad spectrum of health problems. There are many testimonials from people taking Shilajit that have received improvements beyond their expectations. I would recommend you take it for at least 2 months to give it time to work.” - Dr. Michael Hartman*
Some Conditions with Positive Results:
Allergies: Sneezing, stuffy and runny nose, itchy and tearing eyes, skin rash and even asthma are all allergy symptoms caused by the release of histamine. That is why “anti” histamines is the treatment of choice for people suffering with allergies. Shilajit actually helps to stabilize mast cells and prevent histamine from being released too easily. When histamine is not released, you will not suffer from your allergy symptoms.*
Anemia: Iron is required to make red blood cells. If you are not getting enough iron in your diet or it is not absorbed into the body, you can develop iron deficiency anemia. Shilajit is a good source of trace minerals and contains iron. The fulvic acids help carry the iron into the body making it bioavailable so your body can use it to make red blood cells.*
Anti-inflammatory: Shilajit is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It has been shown to reduce acute chemically induced edema by 77%. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to decrease and relieve joint inflammation and pain. The effects on the neurotransmitters in the brain also seem to help relieve joint pain. The antioxidant properties also help to prevent inflammation.*
Anti-ulcer: Digestive problems tend to increase as we age. They are usually treated with antacids. However, we need acid in our stomachs to properly digest our food and minerals are best absorbed in an acid environment. When you decrease or reduce the acid of the stomach you will not digest your food completely. This can cause numerous problems from allergies to malnutrition. Shilajit increases the protective layer of mucous secreted by the lining of the stomach. This protects the wall of the stomach from the acid, preventing and allowing ulcers to heal, and still allows proper digestion and assimilation of food.*
Diabetes: High blood sugar is a growing (literally) health problem today. 60-70 million Americans have some degree of high blood sugar and are progressing on to diabetes. Shilajit has long been used for the prevention and treatment of diabetes in Ayervedic medicine. The antioxidant properties help protect the insulin producing cells of the pancreas (Islet cells) from free radical pathology.*
Increase sex drive: During my trip to Nepal Mr. Suresh Kumar (our guide, a Botanist specializing in medicinal plants) told me (Dr. Hartman) that the number one use of Shilajit in India was as an aphrodisiac. He stated it was well known that Shilajit would return the libido of people to a level of teenagers. I think that with over 1 billion people in India he may be right!*
Immunity: Keep your immune system in top shape with Shilajit. Research on Shilajit has found it will increase the size and phagocytic (virus/bacteria eating ability) activity of Macrophages. Macrophages are your bodies’ natural protection against “foreign” invaders. They are like little “Pac Man” gobbling up any bacteria, virus, cancerous cells and cellular debris. They keep you from “catching” colds and other disease caused by all kinds of germs. Shilajit also stabilizes mast cells reducing allergy symptoms.*
Memory: Shilajit has the ability to cross the blood/brain barrier and increases the bodies own powerful antioxidant enzymes SOD (super oxide dismutase) and Glutathione peroxidase. This helps to protect your brain from the age related damage caused by long-term free radical damage. It also increases levels of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine by inhibiting the enzyme acetyl cholinesterase. Low levels of Acetylcholine are one of the possible causes of Alzheimer’s disease. It protects the neurotransmitter L-DOPA from oxidation. Normalizing the levels of neurotransmitters improves your ability to think clearly and improve your memory.*
