What is Mountain Blood?

A natural mineral pitch that bleeds from the mountain cracks.

Mountain Blood, commonly known as shilajit, is ancient plant matter that has been pressed and preserved between mountain rocks for millions of years. Mountain Blood is essentially shilajit in its purest edible form, sourced directly from the Altai Mountains in Siberia. The pitch is known as a master herb in the Ayurvedic practice and Traditional Chinese Medicine that rejuvenates both body, mind, and spirit. Alexander the Great fed it to his soldiers to increase their strength and stamina. Greek philosopher Aristotle praised its healing powers. It is used by Russian cosmonauts and Olympic athletes for the same reasons.

Even the monkeys love it

Yes. Trust the wise langurs to know a good thing when they try it. Villagers in the Himalayas discovered shilajit through the local monkeys. The villagers noticed how the biggest and strongest monkey were the ones that picked shilajit from the mountain cracks!
