Three Benefits of Pure Shilajit

When you open up a box of Mitolife Panacea, you'll see the words: "Conqueror of mountains, destroyer of weakness". This is a phrase that has been attributed to shilajit's potent abilities on the heavy metal load, mineral balance, and overall enzymatic activity of the body.

Shilajit contains more than 84 carbon bonded (organic) minerals. They are easily assimilated or eliminated depending on if the element is needed by the individual.

Its active ingredient is fulvic acid. It is the same thing that the microbes in the soil create to uptake minerals. It acts as a delivery system to drive the 84+ organic minerals into the cell. It stimulates energy production and the formation of blood. It has benefits for nervous, uninary, diabetic, immune, cardiac and gastric disorders.

Energy Boosting

Shilajit contains dibenzo-alpha-pyrones (DBPs) and DBP chromoproteins. DBPs  work in conjunction with Coenzyme q10 in the mitochondria, boosting it by 29% and increasing cellular energy production. They also have a strong antioxidant effect. Less free radicals being produced means more efficient energy production!

For enzymes to work, you have to have minerals to activate them. Shilajit can fill in the missing gaps of trace minerals that we no longer obtain from our food due to the biogeochemical cycles being disrupted. Countless thousands of enzymatic processes can be activated, resulting in increased energy production. 

Nootropic Effects

While many biohackers gravitate to extremely processed products like piracetam for a cognitive boost, they should first look to shilajit. One study showed that it decreased levels of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid while it increased dopamine and its metabolites homovanillic acid and 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl acetic acid.

What does this mean in English? It decreases serotonergic activity and increases dopaminergic activity, leading to reduced anxiety and an increase in memory and learning. Serotonin is a stress hormone, not a feel-good happy hormone. Because it reduces serotonin, it is probably reducing inflammation in the brain overall. 

Immune System

The complement system is a sophisticated modulator of immune response. It uses surveillance, pattern recognition and crosstalks with other systems. Think of it as an advanced camera surveillance system that sends out an alert, and soldiers, if there's someone that shouldn't be there. It activates most immune cells including neutrophils, macrophages, monocytes, and dendritic cells. 

When the complement systems turns from defense to offensive, we call it an auto-immune disease. Shilajit and its active component, fulvic acid, have been shown to have complement-fixing activity. Better yet, it did that in a dose-dependent manner with high potency. In other words: The more, the better! 

Shilajit also has anti-allergic properties and initiates the destruction of mast cells.

What's the Protocol?

The CLF Protocol, of course! Even if you aren't fully on the CLF Protocol, you can still benefit greatly from consuming shilajit daily. 

The usual recommended dose is 500 milligrams. That is equivalent to 2 1/2 tablets of Panacea. Each tablet contains 200mg of purified shilajit. If we round up to three tablets, that is a 50 day supply! 

Because our situation with NPK fertilizer grown produce and heavy metal exposure is severe, I take double that amount, at least; that means 1000mg or 1 gram per day. That is five tablets or one row on the Panacea sheet. At that significant dose, one box is enough for 30 days. That is plenty of time to feel its effects.
