In the East, the healing properties of Shilajit were known since ancient times. It found recognition in other countries as well. The ancient Greek philosopher and pharmacist Aristotle and the Central Asian scientist Biruni, the Arab philosopher and physician Ibn Ruschts, the medieval French pharmacist Guy de la Fontsne, and the brilliant Italian Leonardo da Vinci paid tribute to this natural remedy.
Here's an interesting fact for you: in southern Siberia and Altai, people of the past also studied the beneficial properties of Shilajit. Moreover, the results of their research are in no way inferior to the research of ancient Greek and Arab sages.
Shamans of the tribes that lived in the Altai mountains in the 11-12th century used "Black Gold" (as they called this unique mountain resin) in the treatment of wounds of hunters, treatment of diseases of the elderly, increasing the immunity of women of the tribe, etc.
In this article, we will look at the several recipes from Shilajit that we inherited from the indigenous people of Altai:
