What is Shilajit?

Before diving into the usage, it's crucial to understand what Shilajit is. This natural substance, found in the Himalayan mountains, is rich in minerals and fulvic acid. It's known for boosting energy, improving mental clarity, and enhancing overall health.

How to Use Shilajit

Step 1: Sourcing Quality Shilajit
The first step is to ensure you're getting pure, high-quality Shilajit. Look for products like PureEssence Shilajit that guarantee no additives or fillers, providing you with the most potent form of this supplement.

Step 2: Preparing Your Dose
Shilajit comes in a resin form, which is its purest state. To use it, simply take a small portion (about the size of a pea) and dissolve it in a glass of warm water, tea, or milk. The resin's thick, tar-like consistency will dissolve, making it easy to consume.

Step 3: Consuming Shilajit
Once your Shilajit is dissolved, drink it preferably on an empty stomach to maximize absorption. Mornings are an ideal time, setting you up with energy and focus for the day ahead.

Step 4: Dosage
Start with a small dose, gradually increasing it over time. The standard dose is about 300 mg (about a pea sized scoop) to 500 mg (almost 2 pea sized scoops) per day, but it's best to listen to your body and adjust accordingly. A good practice is starting off with 1 scoop (300 mg) then moving to 2 scoops (500 mg) as you grow more accustomed to it. Either use the spoon & get a small amount on the top or you can use the leaf on the handle of the spoon to measure your pea sized scoop (like in the image)

Step 5: Frequency
Consistency is key with Shilajit. Taking it daily is recommended to experience its full benefits, including enhanced energy, improved mental clarity, and overall vitality.

Step 6: Monitoring Your Progress
Pay attention to how your body responds. You may notice improvements in energy, cognitive function, and overall well-being. Adjust the dosage or frequency if needed, always prioritizing your comfort and health. We recommend sticking to it for at least 2 weeks, some may notice benefits immediately while others may need more time, depending on health, age, diet & other factors.

Tips for Optimal Use

Stay Hydrated: Shilajit is a powerful detoxifier, so drinking plenty of water will help your body process it effectively.

Combine with a Healthy Lifestyle: To maximize its benefits, pair Shilajit with a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Consult Your Doctor: If you're taking other medications or have underlying health conditions, consult your healthcare provider before starting Shilajit.


Embracing Shilajit in your journey towards health and wellness can be transformative. This natural powerhouse, when used correctly, can significantly enhance your quality of life. Remember, the key to success with Shilajit is quality, consistency, and listening to your body. Here's to your health and vitality!
