While not necessarily new to the medical industry as a supplement, Shilajit is still quite unknown to most consumers.

Shilajit, also called mumijo, is primarily found in the Tibet and Bhutan areas of the Himalayan mountain range, but can also be found in areas of Mongolia, Russia, China, India, and Pakistan. It is said to be found oozing from the cracks of the earth’s surface during warmer seasons.
