Mountain Blood is, figuratively speaking, the lifeblood of mountains – known in Ayuveda as Shilajit. Formed over millennia through the natural compression and biodegration of plant matter between the giant rocks of the Altai mountains in Siberia – Mountain Blood is nature’s multi-vitamin. Long used in Ayurvedic medicine, shilajit is prized as a natural remedy for many health complaints.

Working at a cellular level, it is said that Mountain Blood supports every system in the body. From anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, libido boosting and improving memory, to muscle building, energy boosting, improved mood and better sleep, the list of how Mountain Blood shilajit can support the body, is almost endless.*

Organic Ingredients

Biological Function

Health Benefits

Benzoic Acids Organic acid Benzoic acids are found prolifically throughout nature in plants, animals and bacteria. In high concentrations, they can be toxic; however, in Mountain Blood shilajit, they are found in balanced proportions and possibly add to its antimicrobial benefits.
Carbon-60 Carbon Isotope Carbon-60 includes many benefits including inflammation reduction, powerful free radical scavenging and greatly elevating energy levels. In studies on rats, it lengthened lifespan by up to 90%.
Dibenzo-Alpha-Pyrones Cellular metabolite, antioxidant, energy production The main benefit of Dibenzo-alpha-pyrones is rapidly enhanced energy production, giving rise to twice as much energy production at a faster rate than normal. They also have antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-allergic properties.
Fatty Acids Macronutrient, metabolism, cellular function, hormone signalling, nerve health Fatty acids have a large variety of benefits for the body, being needed for cell growth, metabolism and more. Specifically our nervous system benefits from fatty acids, as each neurone is protected by a thick layer of fat that helps the cell to function. Fatty acids also give us more energy.
Hippuric Acids Blood metabolite, urea formation Hippuric acids are normally by-products of waste, however they are also known to display antimicrobial properties. Some data suggests that Hippuric acids can dissolve kidney and bladder stones, remove toxins from the body and that higher amounts are associated with a healthier microbiome and reduced metabolic disorder symptoms.
Fulvic Acids Organic acid, electrolyte, nutrient transport, antioxidant, metal chelation Fulvic acid has numerous benefits including enhancing nutrient absorption, rendering toxins inert, lowering inflammation and rebalancing cellular fluids as an electrolyte would. It also improves gut health by allowing probiotic bacteria to flourish at the right pH.
Humic Acids Organic acid, metal chelation, antioxidant Humic acids have multiple benefits including reducing inflammation, fighting off pathogens, speeding up wound healing, improving gut health and decreasing free radical release. These acids also chelate heavy metals, rendering them inert while removing them from the body.
Phenolic steroids Plant-based hormones, antioxidant Phenolic steroids are plant-based versions of hormones such as oestrogen and testosterone, which usually go hand-in-hand with other antioxidant phenolic compounds. In balanced amounts as found in Mountain Blood shilajit they display numerous health benefits, including increasing the amount of sex hormones, improving antioxidant status and protecting cells from oxidative stress.
Phospholipids Fatty acid, cellular function, metabolism, cell signalling Phospholipids are types of fatty acid that are highly bioavailable, enhancing cellular function faster than other types of fats. Known benefits include reducing pharmaceutical side effects, lowering inflammation, preventing the growth and spread of cancer, causing tumour cells to die off, lowering ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and enhancing cognition plus brain function.
Phosphoric Anhydride Cellular metabolite, energy production Phosphoric anhydrides are dehydrated phosphoric acids, which are a class of cellular metabolites with antimicrobial properties. ATP, the main molecules used to create energy, is a derivative of phosphoric acid and naturally enhances energy production in all cells. In Mountain Blood shilajit, the amounts of phosphoric anhydride are balanced and non-toxic.
Pregnane Precursor to pregnenolone, androgen, hormone regulation Pregnane is needed to produce pregnenolone, a hormone that gets depleted in everyone as they age.
