What Is Mountainlife Shilajit?

Shilajit is a black mineral resin, containing more than 85+ vital minerals and trace elements needed by our body for the growth of new cells and energy reactions within the cells, along with rich levels of fulvic acid which helps the body to absorb these valuable minerals.


Shilajit contains practically all of the elements (including fulvic & Humic acid, minerals & trace minerals) from the periodic table and is empowered by natural antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory & rejuvenating properties.


Shilajit's age-old healing remedies have been around for thousands of years and the ancient peoples speak of the "Indian Ayurvedic" & "Siberian Shamanistic" medicines which Shilajit is a vital component of.

Where Does Shilajit Come From?

Shilajit is naturally occurring in the high orient and Himalayas and also in northern Pakistan, Tibet and the Altai mountains region in Russia and Mongolia. 


Mountainlife provides pure naturally obtained Shilajit resin which comes from the pristine region of the Altai nestled deep within Siberia. This area has been native to the Altaic & Turkic peoples and is located in Siberia between the borders of kazakhstan & Mongolia. 


How Is Shilajit Made?

Pure Shilajit is produced over a huge course of time. It takes roughly 50million years for the organic matter and plant hummus to be transformed into this mineral rich tar.Millions of years ago, the ancient fauna that grew in these areas became trapped and decomposed whilst the tectonic plates in the earth formed mountain ranges to collide with one another. The pressure from this slow process combined with the altitude high up caused this trapped organic matter to naturally “ooze” out of the rocks.

Where Is Mountainlife Shilajit Sourced?

We source our Shilajit from a very remote part of the Altai Mountains in Siberia close to the Mongolian border. This area has been historically known as the "Golden Mountain" which comprises of a collection of valleys and peaks. The environment in the Altai region of Russia is completely untouched and pristine, and absolutely free from pollutants and air bound chemicals. 


 During the summer months in the Altai, temperatures can reach up to 40°C which heats up the mountain rock. This heat slowly transfers in to the rocks which allows the Shilajit to become more viscous. Once it becomes a sticky tar it can be extracted from the cracks within the rock. This is a dangerous task and the local people of the area have expert skill in the mountains and the nature that inhabits its valleys.

What Types Of Shilajit Are there?

Shilajit Resin is the most common. Shilajit Resin is the most natural form of Shilajit.



There is a filtration process to remove the impurities (Dirt, rock sediment etc) which involves the traditional process of filtering spring through the Shilajit mix. Once it has dried and the moisture content lowered it becomes a thick sticky tar like resin.

Shilajit Powder is still harvested in the same way as the Resin. However, Shilajit powder gets dried so that its moisture content is almost removed. It then is similar to a thick sticky brown dust. When open to the "Atmosphere" It can absorb moisture and eventually turn back into the tar like Resin.Shilajit powder is best used for smoothies & a great addition to a protein shake!
