Related info: Shilajit is obtained from rocks in the towering cliffs of the Himalayan Mountains formed about 50 million years ago. Dense vegetation, literally an entire rain forest, was trapped millions of tons of pressure which slowly turned into a rich Bio-active material to form the rarest nutrient rich substance found on earth known as Shilajit. Shilajit helps an aged person feel young by regaining strength and vitality.
Studies have shown that people of Himalayan region have a more healthy, long & active life due to Shilajit.
A natural original organic colloidal multi-mineral supplement collected in raw form & further purified.
Many companies are claiming that their Shilajit may contains 20% to 50% or more Fulvic acid (which is entirely based on judgments and without any scientific analysis) but in reality purified Shilajit extract does not contain more than 4% to 5% Fulvic acid in natural form.
To get guaranteed 50% Fulvic acid Extraction ratio may go beyond (100:1) which is beyond imagination.
Standard company having in house extraction facility in plant will not make such type of wrong claim. Until addition of Fulvic acid is done from outside source.
So there is difference between in the saying that.
Shilajit may contain 20% to 50% Fulvic acid content and guaranteed % of Fulvic acid.
To analyze the same we give them:
Standard Testing method of Fulvic acid in Shilajit:
Reagents and Solvents required:
Methyl Alcohol L.R. Grade
Ethyl Acetate L.R. Grade
Chloroform L.R. Grade
0.1 N Naoh Solution
2 N HCL
Glass ware required:
Soxhlet apparatus (200 ml. Capsule)
Beaker 250 ml
50 ml Stopped Cylinder.
Procedure: Weigh accurately 10 gm of dry extract powder of raw material (20#) in round bottom flask. Add 50 ml. CHCL3 and reflex for 30 minutes. Discard chloroform layer. Add 50 ml of ethyl acetate to the residue and reflux for 30 minutes and discard the ethyl acetate layer. Add 50 ml. of Methyl alcohol and again reflux for 30 minutes and discard the Methyl alcohol layer. Take residue and dissolve it in 200 ml of 0.1N NaoH and shake thoroughly. Pass Nitrogen gas in this alkali solution for 5 - 6 minutes keep over night. Filter through what man no. 1 filter paper. Take filtrate and make it acidic up to pH 3 to 3.5 with (2N HCL take). Keep this solution for overnight. Add charcoal (3.5 gm charcoal) to this solution and reflux for 1 hour. Filter under vacuum. Take charcoal and dry up to complete removal of water. Suspend in 100 ml of ecetone and shake well. Heat for 15 and filter it in a tared petridish. Evaporate acetone and dry in oven up to constant weight.
Percentage of Fulvic acid (w/w) is calculated as:
Wt. of residue x 100
--------------------- = % of Fulvic acid w/w
Wt. of sample taken
This way we find out only 1Kg of highly potent and 2.5%-4% rich Fulvic acid Shilajit extract from 6Kg of the raw Shilajit powder and the rest is just a waste and is discarded.
Ancient in origin and pure beyond measure.

The herbs used are A-grade, that are sorted, dedusted, (foreign matter is separated manually) washed in RO water, repeat washed in DM water, and are sun shadow dried under optimum conditions.
The dried herbs are pulverized at an optimum frequency suitable to retain its active principles and thereafter potentiated using in-house developed Bhavana-decoction of the same complete herb (Traditional ayurvedic system to fortify the herb) that decoction is added to the same herb and thereafter micro-pulverised to make them free flowing.
Bhavana-decoction method is based on Traditional Ayurvedic principle "Mardanam Gunvardhnam" means "Trituration increases the efficacy to many folds".
Note: The quality and part of the plant used are highly important in the manufacturing and processing of herbal powders. Certain parts are more potent than others.
The properties of single herb may differ from region to region. Ripening and timely harvesting are yet another important factor for the potency of any particular herb.
There are guidelines for collection of different herbs at different times and there is a particular span of time for collecting some particular herbs.
Naturally grown herbs are assumed to be more potent and effective than cultivated herbs because habitat plays an important role.
All related factors, including the above, are considered very carefully and thoroughly.
Wild crafted herb from their natural habitat without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or preservatives.
Quality, Purity is assured.
HerbsForever maintains the quality standards like purity, potency and freshness of its herbal dietary products by storing them in climate controlled, light controlled and atmosphere regulated storages. Thus, no chances of outside vermin and pests infestation.
Vedaliving is proud to carry on the tradition of our founders. We are a team of herbalists, biochemists, pharmacists and microbiologists to bring you safe and high quality traditional Ayurvedic products.
Wild crafted herbs from their natural habitat without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or preservatives.
Our naturally grown wild crafted herbs come from their natural habitat. Aborigine also plays its role in the efficacy of the herb. The properties of herb may differ from region to region. Vedaliving makes every effort to collect the herbs from their aborigines. Natural habitat plays a key role in the potency of herbs, which is why we use wild crafted herbs, as opposed cultivated ones. Every herb is collected from its natural habitat as Naturally grown herbs are assumed to be more potent.
Proper harvest time for higher potency is another key factor.
We highly advocate the harvesting of herbs at the most appropriate time of ripening. No immature plants, no over riped plants are selected. Herbs at their youth possess the maximum potency and we try our best to procure the herbs at that particular time period. There are guidelines for collection of different herbs at different times and there is a particular span of time for collecting herbs.
Using purified water: Water used also stands out as a major role player. Water is processed under DM plant, RO plant then converted into steam. That steam water is used in the processing of herbs to avoid any chance of heavy metal contamination.
Products as per Ayurvedic Standards: Herbs are powdered in their original form without extracting any oil or any of the active phyto-ingredient. Herb like turmeric, neem seeds, babchi, yellow shatavari (from Nepal) has oil inside. We grind with the oil instead of extracting the oil because oil has also unique properties. This makes processing lengthy and involve lot of labour. But potency and full spectrum of the herb paysoff its price to user.
Further, the powdered herb undergoes wet trituration process – called BHAVANA in Ayurveda, which means the powdered herb is mixed with the fresh juice of the same herb so that powder made from these quality herbs are potent, effective and result oriented.
The trituration accentuates hidden medicinal properties of the herb and to ensure that the herb, as soon as administered, is absorbed quickly at the cell level. Subtlety should be the quality by virtue of which a product can penetrate into the smallest capillary and channels of the biological system.
Some herbs cannot undergo this bhavna process - such as Vidarikandkand, Shatavari yellow, Lajwanti (Mimosa pudica) because they have mucilaginous properties and only the defined parts are used. In such cases, we like to combine different varieties of same herb to obtain maximum potency. Also each variety has some additional benefits to offer. For example, Tulsi has many varieties like Krishna or shyama Tulsi, Rama Tulsi, Vana Tulsi best way to use all varieties of tulsi. This way, it helps to provide maximum benefits of the same herb and also accounts for the full spectrum of the plant family.
In certain herbs almost all parts of the plants are usable likewise in neem all the parts namely; stem, leaves, seeds & bark are known to be of utmost importance. In this case main part of the herb is powdered and rest of the parts are boiled in water to extract all the beneficial properties of those parts and this extracted liquid is used in the shape of bhavna. It is added to the main herb powder to get full spectrum of the herb. Why this is done? According to Ayurveda, certain plants own acting and counteracting properties simultaneously. Some plants may have side effects, but also in other parts healing benefits to counteract. So various parts of the plant are used to balance the outcome & obtain full spectrum.
Certain herbs have different varieties. We at Vedaliving expanded our outlook and went further to know difference of the varieties. And the price that we pay for the difference certainly carries value in terms of escalated phyto-chemicals and antioxidant properties.
