WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
This particular Shilajit comes from the Altai Mountains, Russian Altay, Mongolian Altayn Nuruu, Chinese (Pinyin) Altai Shan, complex mountain system of Central Asia extending approximately 1,200 miles (2,000 km) in a southeast-northwest direction from the Gobi (Desert) to the West Siberian Plain, through China, Mongolia, Russia, and Kazakhstan. The jagged mountain ridges derive their name from the Turkic-Mongolian Altan, meaning “golden.”
But don’t be fooled by its size, since the Altai mountains don’t contain many places where you can find Shilajit. There are only a few locations where it comes to the surface and covers the mountainsides like thick black tar. However, the locals know about unique places where this black resin covers the steep mountainside at 3000m of altitude, which simultaneously offers a spectacular view.
In some cases, Shilajit passes through rocks back into the mountain, pools inside a cave or a crevice. People have reported that it can form in such a thick mass that it starts forming stalagmites and even forms large puddles of this rich crusty resin. Sites like this provide the primary source of Altai Shilajit for locals to collect the best possible natural resin.
HARVESTING AND CLEANING
Firstly, Shilajit that secretes through the cracks in the rock is supposed to be collected and immediately cleaned with clean and warm spring water. We separate Shilajit from dirt and everything else unwanted. Many Shilajit providers don’t use clean water since it means a significant cut down on the cost of Shilajit production. As a result, the finished product is unclean and sometimes even hazardous to your health since it can contain unwanted heavy metals that can damage your body.
Getting you the best quality of 100% pure Shilajit can be guaranteed at Mountaindrop since we gladly provide all the necessary certificates required to make such a statement. All of our Shilajit is extracted using the purest water without using any chemical compounds. We are firm believers in 100% natural Shilajit and will gladly continue our mission of delivering the best Shilajit possible.
STORED IN A SPECIAL PURPLE GLASS JAR
How we store it and where it plays an essential part in the overall quality of the final product. We use special purple glass containers that give it a much longer life span while protecting Shilajits’s nutritional value. This way, it can be stored for a very long time while still being completely healthy and safe for consumption. Beware of plastic containers and cheap regular glass since it usually means shilajit itself was already compromised.
LABORATORY TESTED SHILAJIT OF UNCOMPROMISED QUALITY
Even if it’s obvious, we’re still going to say it. Certified products with all necessary laboratory tests are always the right way to go. We test our shilajit twice. First time in Syberia and a second time in the EU. This double testing assures that the shilajit doesn’t contain too many heavy metals. You can find all the tests Here
The first thing we test it for is authenticity. Since it’s common to mix all kinds of materials that resemble Shilajit, it’s essential to know where your Shilajit is coming from and if you’re even dealing with the real thing. With an authenticity test, we ensure that our product comes from where we claim it does, whereas its chemical structure must be up to specific standards if it wants to pass the authenticity test.
Secondly, we test it for heavy metals. The term heavy metal refers to any metallic chemical element with a relatively high density and is toxic or poisonous at low concentrations. Heavy metals are widespread everywhere, and if we want that the product is safe for consumption, it must meet specific standards.
At Mountaintop, we test each batch in specially certified laboratories to ensure that they’re completely safe and pass strict food safety regulations. Lastly, we test our shilajit for any harmful bacteria or anything else that could be bad for your health. If the product passes all these tests, then it’s ready for consumption.
We realized that the only way to bring this wonderful product of mother nature to the people is to accept that people need proof of safety. We live in times when our health has never been more important, and we’re just glad that we can do our small part in this. This way, our mission of selling the best possible Shilajit has been achieved through honesty and safe practices. And we couldn’t be more proud. Because your health matters.
All our products are processed and manufactured in a GMP certified manufacturing process.
