It is a Asian version of Viagra, its also used for arthiritis and other things, but these claims are not proven by any health authrotiy.

Salajeet ( or shilajit) is a blackish brown natural mass found from steep rocks of the Himalayan belt,of Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Bhutan, Nepal, Kashmir and USSR.

Many traditional doctors in Pakistan claim Salajeet has the ability to reverse aging and anti-inflammatory properties that can relieve joint pain and inflammation.

MINING AND PROCESSING

Salajeet is mined in mountainous regions such as in the Himalayas. It actually comes out from the mountains themselves. In the summer time, it kind of becomes soft and putty like, so it is difficult to mine. If one were to shoot up at it , the bullet would just go into it. Thus, it is mined almost exclusively in the winter. Again, guns are used and it is shot at. Since it is frozen, it shatters and the dark brown/black fragments fall in the snow and can easily be collected.

Once it is "mined" it has to be processed (because in its raw form it is not safe to consume). This "process" mainly consists of melting and then boiling these fragments. It is boiled for a very long period of time (the exact time of which I do not know) until it is fit for human consumption. It is cooled once again (at which point it re-solidifies) and then is broken into tiny crystal pieces.

CONSUMPTION

Salajeet is to be taken before sleeping. A tiny piece approximately 2 mm in diameter is all that should be consumed. It should be followed by a cold glass of milk or crumbled into the milk and drank that way. Most people say that they feel so warm the next morning that they want to jump into a tub of ice.

REASONS FOR CONSUMPTION

Salajeet can only be consumed for certain reasons. It is highly discouraged to consume it on a regular basis or for no reason.

1. Salajeet induces heat (garmi) in the body. You might have heard elders say how some people are hot blooded while others are cool blooded. Hot blooded people are associated with being healthier, stronger etc. while cool blooded people are "less" of those things. It is used in the snowy mountains to stay warm.

2. Another one of the most common reasons is bone fractures. Salajeet has incredible properties related to the speeding up of the healing of broken bones. In the mountains where it is severely cold, a broken bone can take a long time to heal but there have been cases in which Salajeet has healed injured people much faster than people who did not use it. This is partly due to the garmi inducing nature of it, as well as it's other "mysterious" properties.

3. It's properties on "hormonal activity" in men have been known for a long time in villages and has recently been researched by a group of Russian scientists. It was found to caontain a large amount of triterpenes. The Chinese have also used Salajeet for it's virility increasing properties for generations. This increase in virility is purely an effect of Salajeet’s balance restoring properties. There is nothing in Salajeet that actively stimulates sexual desire, it only restores hormonal balances to their norm.

4. Wrestlers (pahalvan) use Salajeet to strengthen their bones. This is the only case in which the regular use of it is allowed. The reason being that perspiration releases the extra garmi and it does not harm the body. The myth that Salajeet can make your bones "as strong as iron" is apparently believed by many a pahalvan.

The garmi that is induced by Salajeet can be harmful. That is why the regular use of it is discouraged almost always. This garmi can harm the liver, it can cause acne, stomach problems, and lathargy.

INTERESTING INFORMATION

Most people believe that Salajeet was discovered by the Langur monkeys that inhabit these northern and mountainous areas. The Langur's eat the Salajeet raw. The miraculous thing about them is that they can jump from one mountain to another (yes, mountain). The distance and force required to do so would shatter their bones, but incredibly nothing happens to them. Most people say that this astonishing feat is attributed to Salajeet and it's affects on bone development.

Bro, this is my own write-up about Salajeet from a while back. Most of the information comes from either people I have talked to or myself, as I have samples of pure Salajeet.

I don't mind if you want to use it in a magazine, although I have no sources to site here. I am not much of a translator, so if any of you want to do that you are welcome to. Or you could post it in English if that works?

No problem man. Bro, there are actually several online companies that sell it now, but I am not sure if it is as pure as back home, you know.

The Salajeet I have is from Landi Kotal, Khyber and it is pretty old, but they say it gets better with age.

I used to take a tiny bit before working out sometimes. I am pretty sure it improves bone density and stuff and if you are doing weights like the ones in your avatar it will definitely help you out.

Yeah, it will warm you up, you won't need a jacket anymore lol j/k. As far as I know it is perfectly legal. According to the Russian research, there is nothing illegal about it.

It's very crystally and crumbles easily into a powdery form. If a block of it were to fall, it would shatter. Usually people just crumble it into a glass of milk.

Here are a couple of pictures at DZJ's request:

What is Shilajit - Shilajit Benefits and Use of Shilajit




What It Is Shilajit: -

Shilajit is a mineral-rich organic compound that seeps out from between rocks high in the mountains of northeastern India and other parts of Asia during the summer. Also known as asphalt and mineral pitch, the compound comes in shades of copper, gold, silver and black, with the black form being the one most often used in ayurvedic preparations. Much of shilajit consists of decayed plant material.

How to Take Shilajit: -http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_6KtgnXwpEfE/TFAT4BWrDhI/AAAAAAAAACI/Cf2p0Yalh2I/s320/shilajitgoldcapsule.jpg (http://www.herbalcureindia.com/products/shilajit.htm)

Shilajit means "rock of life" in Sanskrit. Anecdotes, none of them verified by medical studies, claim the Shilajit plant gives its users the ability to retain youth and energy, to endure the ravages of time with a rock-like durability. Shilajit is found in the Himalayan region. It supposedly contains 85 minerals and fulvic acid. Some people take it in supplement form to ward off illnesses, boost metabolism and lose weight. However, there is no reputable
evidence that this supplement can impart any of these benefits.

• Begin by taking 300 mg of Shilajit per day. This may be taken at any time during the day, but it should be taken with water. If you are using liquid Shilajit, mix it in juice or water.
• If your body does well with 300 mg of Shilajit and you do not experience a rash, headache or other reaction, add in an additional 100 mg of Shilajit per day and work up to 500 mg. An average dose of Shilajit is between 300 to 500mg daily.
• Cut back on Shilajit if you experience any negative side effects. Increase your water consumption.

Use of Shilajit (http://www.herbalcureindia.com/products/shilajit-dabur.htm): -

Shilajit is composed of humus and other organic plant matter that oozes out through the rocks of the Himalaya Mountains during the spring and summer. According to the Infinity Foundation website, the sap hardens into a "compact mass of vegetable organic matter composed of dark red gummy matrix." It has a bitter taste and an unpleasant odor. Shilajit is also called shilajeet, shilajita mumiyo, mineral pitch, mineral wax, ozokerite or Asphaltum punjabianum, and is used most often in traditional Ayurvedic medical practices.

What Are the Benefits of Shilajit?

• Prevention: - Shilajit has been used to increase the health of the nervous system, to ensure liver health and to aid in mental concentration.
• Relief: - The herb eases muscle pain, as well as joint pain caused by arthritis (http://www.pashtunforums.com/#) and gout.
• Neurological Disorders: - Seizures caused by epilepsy have been lessened in intensity and frequency while the patient is consuming shilajit.
• Internal: - On a microbial level, the herb has shown positive effects in treating blood disease, as well as viruses in the bloodstream and body.
• Strength and Weight: - Those weakened by disease have used shilajit to strengthen their bodies. It is also used to promote healthy weight loss (http://www.pashtunforums.com/#).
• Daily Use: - The herb (http://www.pashtunforums.com/#) is safe to take daily as part of a vitamin regimen. Shilajit works in conjunction with other minerals (http://www.pashtunforums.com/#) in the body.

Ozokerite, Wasatch County, Utah (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Wasatch_County,_Utah)


Ozokerite or ozocerite (Gr. Όζο oze, stench, and κερί kero, wax) is a naturally-occurring odoriferous mineral wax or paraffin (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Paraffin) found in many localities.



Sources

Specimens have been obtained from Scotland (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Scotland), Northumberland (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Northumberland) and Wales (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Wales), as well as from about thirty different countries. Of these occurrences the ozokerite of the island (now peninsula) of Cheleken (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Cheleken), near Turkmenbashi (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Turkmenbashi), parts of the Himalayas (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Himalayas) in India (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/India) and the deposits of Utah (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Utah) in the US, deserve mention, though the last-named have been largely worked out. The sole sources of commercial supply are in Galicia (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Galicia_(Central_Europe)), at Boryslaw (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Boryslaw), Dzwiniacz (http://www.pashtunforums.com/w/index.php?title=Dzwiniacz&action=edit&redlink=1) and Starunia (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Starunia), though the mineral is found at other points on both flanks of the Carpathians (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Carpathian_Mountains).
Ozokerite deposits are believed to have originated in much the same way as mineral veins, the slow evaporation and oxidation of petroleum (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Petroleum) having resulted in the deposition of its dissolved paraffin in the fissures and crevices previously occupied by the liquid. As found native, ozokerite varies from a very soft wax to a black mass as hard as gypsum (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Gypsum).
Properties

Its specific gravity ranges from 0.85 to 0.95, and its melting point from 58 to 100 °C. It is soluble in ether (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Diethyl_ether), petroleum, benzene (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Benzene), turpentine (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Turpentine), chloroform (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Chloroform), carbon disulfide (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Carbon_disulfide), &c. Galician ozokerite varies in color from light yellow to dark brown, and frequently appears green owing to dichroism. It usually melts at 62 °C. Chemically, ozokerite consists of a mixture of various hydrocarbons (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Hydrocarbon), containing 85-7% by weight of carbon and 14-3% of hydrogen.
Mining

The mining of ozokerite was formerly carried on in Galicia by means of hand-labor, but in the ozokerite mines owned by the Boryslaw Actien Gesellschaft (http://www.pashtunforums.com/w/index.php?title=Boryslaw_Actien_Gesellschaft&action=edit&redlink=1) and the Galizische Kreditbank (http://www.pashtunforums.com/w/index.php?title=Galizische_Kreditbank&action=edit&redlink=1), the workings of which extend to a depth of 200 metres, and 225 metres respectively, electrical power is employed for hauling, pumping and ventilating. In these mines there are the usual main shafts and galleries, the ozokerite being reached by levels driven along the strike of the deposit. The wax, as it reaches the surface, varies in purity, and, in new workings especially, only hand-picking is needed to separate the pure material. In other cases much earthy matter is mixed with the material, and then the rock or shale having been eliminated by hand-picking, the "wax-stone" is boiled with water in large coppers, when the pure wax rises to the surface. This is again melted without water, and the impurities are skimmed off, the material being then run into slightly conical cylindrical moulds (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Molding_(process)), and thus made into blocks for the market. The crude ozokerite is refined by treatment first with oil of vitriol (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Oil_of_vitriol), and subsequently with charcoal (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Charcoal), when the ceresine (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Ceresine) or cerasin of commerce is obtained. The refined ozokerite or ceresine, which usually has a melting-point of 61 to 78 °C, is largely used as an adulterant (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Adulterant) of beeswax (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Beeswax), and is frequently colored artificially to resemble that product in appearance.
On distillation in a current of superheated steam, ozokerite yields a candle (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Candle)-making material resembling the paraffin obtained from petroleum and shale-oil but of higher melting-point, and therefore of greater value if the candles made from it are to be used in hot climates. There are also obtained in the distillation light oils and a product resembling vaseline (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Vaseline). The residue in the stills consists of a hard, black, waxy substance, which in admixture with India-rubber (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/India-rubber) was employed under the name of okonite (http://www.pashtunforums.com/w/index.php?title=Okonite&action=edit&redlink=1) as an electrical insulator (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Electrical_insulator). From the residue a form of the material known as heel-ball (http://www.pashtunforums.com/w/index.php?title=Heel-ball&action=edit&redlink=1), used to impart a polished surface to the heels and soles of boots, was also manufactured.
Mining of ozokerite fell off after 1940 due to competition from paraffins (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Paraffin) manufactured from petroleum (http://www.pashtunforums.com/wiki/Petroleum), but as it has a higher melting point than most petroleum waxes, it is still favored for some applications, such as electrical insulators and candles, or in extra-soft paper tissues.

I'm glad to hear you got some positive results out of it. Most guys who bodybuild back home take it as well, and they end up looking pretty ferocious. Their muscles will get bigger but stronger too - not just balloony like the ones steroids give you.
