Shilajit is a powerful source of nutrients, natural elements, and biologically active organic substances that the human body can easily absorb. Authentic shilajit can quickly improve overall health and promote longevity by altering human chemistry. Ashless humic acid is a well-known active ingredient found in shilajit. While the origins and discovery of shilajit are not entirely clear, it is generally believed that Himalayan natives were the first to discover shilajit resin. However, anecdotal evidence suggests that locals living around the Altai mountain ranges were using shilajit resin, which they called "mumie," long before it was discovered by the Himalayan natives.
