Shilajit |Origin, Forms and its Storage

In this blog, we will talk about from where Shilajit is originated, its formation and the way it should be stored.
Shilajit is originated from the decomposition of plant material from species such as Trifolium Repens and Euphorbia royleana. It takes nearly centuries to occur and, hence, it is considered a millenary product of nature.
Shilajit forms over several million years as a plant and other organic matter confined between layers of the Greater Himalayas. Under the weight of the mountains, pressure and weather cycles, the organic matter and plants reform into a mineral-rich bitumen.
Puri Brothers Shilajit originates from the higher altitudes of 16,000 to 18,000 feet, where the environment is free of pollutants, fertilizers, and chemicals. During the hot days, the mountains heat up, and the raw Shilajit material (Asphaltum) warms and becomes viscous and can be observed through the cracks of layers of rocks. Once the Shilajit is collected, its extraction process starts in a 5:1 ratio. This process will be carried repetitively to remove impurities and concentrate the shilajit. After the Shilajit concentrate is prepared, it is dried, milled, and shifted until it refines to its uniform size. Puri Brothers Shilajit contains 5% fulvic acid and has low trace lead levels compared to other products in the market.
Form and storage
Shilajit is a natural product restoring energetic balance. Solid is the stable form of Shilajit, although it may be firm or dense depending on the humidity. Liquid or Resin shilajit will dry out, so one may need to add a few drops of clean water to replenish the moisture evaporation. Pure Powder shilajit may reform back to solid. In order to protect it from regaining back to its solid state, it must be kept in a closed container and not be exposed to heat.

Every food supplement has an expiry date.
The life of Shilajit depends on how you pack and store it. The best possible way for you to long last the life of Shilajit is by storing it in a glass container.
Make sure that you store Liquid Shilajit or soft resin in a container and keep it safely in an upright position. Do not try to overturn the jar. And if you find the cap is stuck, then place it under the sunlight and try to open it again.
Also, the mixtures of Himalayan Shilajit last for months depending upon their raw source of packing. But the mixtures with Siberian Shilajit may turn inadequately in 24 hours. Hence, make sure that you refrigerate all stored mixtures of Shilajit.
