Unlocking Mental Clarity With Shilajit

Unlocking Mental Clarity With Shilajit

6 minute read

Have you ever been desperately trying to focus but just couldn’t concentrate? Been sat in a meeting at work desperately trying to organise your thoughts? Or trying to think of something and the answer just won’t come to you? Brain fog is all too common in our modern, busy, 100-mile-per-hour lives, but there is an answer to this… Shilajit!

This ancient substance has been used for centuries in traditional medicine, particularly in Ayurveda, and it's gaining popularity today for its amazing benefits for mental clarity and overall brain health. Holistic Health & Nutrition Coach, Emma at EmPower Healing, fills us in on all these benefits below….

What is Shilajit?

Shilajit is a sticky, tar-like substance found primarily in the rocks of the Himalayas. It's formed over centuries from the slow decomposition of plants, which is the reason for its rich mineral content. In Sanskrit, shilajit means "conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness," an appropriate name for something so potent! Shilajit is rich in fulvic acid and over 80 minerals, and for this reason is often referred to as a rejuvenator and adaptogen (meaning a natural substance which helps the body react to stress).

How Does Shilajit Boost Mental Clarity?

1. Enhances cognitive function: Shilajit is known for its brain protective properties. The fulvic acid it contains helps enhance cognitive function by reducing inflammation and preventing the buildup of tau proteins, which have been linked to neurodegenerative diseases. This means shilajit can help keep your brain sharp as you age. Who wouldn’t want that?!
2. Lowers stress and anxiety: Stress and anxiety are huge barriers to mental clarity. Racing thoughts going round your head can absolutely be a blocker to focus levels! Shilajit has adaptogenic properties, helping your body adapt to stress and promoting a sense of calm. By regulating the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) in your body, shilajit can help reduce anxiety and improve your mood, resulting in clearer thinking.
3. Improves energy levels: Mental fatigue can have a huge impact on your clarity and focus. Shilajit boosts mitochondrial (cell) function and energy production at a cellular level, providing a natural, sustained energy boost with zero side effects! This can help combat mental fatigue, keeping you alert and focused throughout the day. No more brain fog :)
4. Supports brain health: Shilajit is packed with antioxidants, which protect brain cells from damage caused by free radicals. By maintaining healthy brain cells, shilajit supports overall brain health and function.

How Should You Use Shilajit for Mental Clarity?

Here are a few tips on how to incorporate it into your daily routine:

1. Start small: If you’re new to shilajit, start with a very small dose, like a pea-sized amount of resin. You can gradually increase the dosage as your body adjusts over time.
2. Mix it up: Our shilajit resin can be dissolved in warm water, added to a comforting herbal tea or blended in your favourite nutrient-packed smoothie. You can use our handy little shilajit spoon to do this!
3. Keep consistent: To experience the full benefits of shilajit, consistency is key. Incorporate it into your daily routine for at least a few weeks and observe any changes in your mental clarity and overall well-being - read our reviews below for some of our happy customer’s reviews proving just how fast this has worked for them!
4. Habit stack and make it a routine: It takes 21 days for a new habit to form, so how about leaving your shilajit on the side next to your kettle as a morning reminder to take this magical stuff, and sip on it whilst you go about your morning routine.

Final Thoughts on this Superfood…

In our fast-paced, modern world, filled with distractions and things built to side track our thoughts, achieving and maintaining mental clarity can be tough to say the least! Shilajit offers a natural, ancient solution to support cognitive function, reduce stress, and boost energy levels. By bringing this powerful little substance into your life, you will quickly find yourself thinking more clearly, feeling more focused, and embracing your day with incredible mental clarity.

Remember, while shilajit can be a powerful tool for mental clarity, it works best as part of a holistic approach to health. Combining shilajit with a balanced diet (including some of our other amazing superfoods), regular exercise, good quality sleep, and stress management techniques will give you the best chance of achieving and maintaining optimal brain health.

I’m new to this little pot of magic 🪄 and I absolutely LOVE it 🥰

I suffer from chronic fatigue and brain fog as a result of suffering from Crohn’s disease and quite honestly taking this daily is changing my life for the better! I have three sons and I believe taking this is enabling me to function better and feel sharper cognitively which allows me to be much more present with my sons ♥️ Thank you 🙏

What actually is this magic???? I’ve been using this Shilajit for a week now and WOW! Within the first 3 days I felt incredible. My energy levels are more stable, I’m not craving sugar. My head is much much clearer and I feel stronger!
This year started, not on the greatest high for me. For months I felt sluggish, unmotivated and just not looking forward to getting up in the morning. I knew I had to do something about it as this just wasn’t me. This Shilajit has made a massive impact on my life already and it’s only been a week! Incredible incredible stuff!!



I can not go without shilajit resin now!! I always restock when I run out because this has helped heal my body TENFOLD!! 50g lasted me about a year if I remember correctly?? It lasted me ages!!! Definitely buy if you want to heal your nerves and help your mind and body too! Shilajit is a godsend and I couldn't be without it now!
