Throughout the ancient history of medicine, Shilajit has been used in helping many recover from broken bones, fractures, joint dislocation and more. Biruni, Avicenna and other founding fathers of medicine used Shilajit in ointments, clay preparations and in combination with other herbal therapeutics – like saffron – to treat these conditions with apparently great success.
So what does modern day medicine have to say about this? You ought to be aware by now that Shilajit is rich in trace minerals, nutrients and fulvic acid, which helps us to more easily absorb nutrients. Out of these Shilajit constituents, amino acids, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Boron, Iron, Zinc, Copper, Calcium, Manganese, Silicon and Strontium are of particular interest to bone health as all of them are involved in the strengthening of bones and joints.
Not surprisingly, in numerous USSR-based clinical trials carried out on more than 4000 humans and hundreds of animals in the 60s and 70s, it was revealed that Shilajit reduced bone fracture recovery time by 50% on average! Not only was recovery time reduced, but it was observed that the bone and cartilage tissue in the damaged areas began to fully regenerate after a month of treatment. In all studies, this effect was attributed to the fact that the participants absorbed at least 2.5 times more trace minerals into their bones than control groups, who weren’t given any Shilajit.
☝️Furthermore, in patients with painful neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, experimental trials show that Shilajit lowered inflammation and pain in the muscles. Interestingly, all symptoms of these patients vanished within 3-5 days with a 100% success rate!
Of course, the body also needs a steady supply of Vitamin D3, Vitamin K and other nutrients, plus plenty of bed rest, to achieve optimal results!
Combine internal and external use.
Internal: take 200mg twice or three time daily for a period of 1 month.
External: Mix 1 part Shilajit with 10-20 parts saline solution and apply with a wet cloth on the problem area. If possible, leave the cloth on the area overnight for 3-5 nights.
