On its own, shilajit does not have the savoriest of tastes for most palates. Based on Ayurveda recommendations, we suggest you try taking your previously measured portion of shilajit with one or more of the following ingredients to enhance the taste and absorption of this powerful adaptogen:
- Hot milk (organic goat’s milk is best)
- Ghee (clarified butter)
- Raw, unpasteurized honey
- Sesame oil
- Coconut oil, herbal teas, or spring water for vegans (never chlorinated water)
Depending on your tastes and dietary preferences, experiment and see what works best for you to get your daily shilajit intake. Make sure you use warm liquid for quick dissolving within a couple of minutes. To speed up the process, flatten the portion with the back of a spoon and stir.
The Best Time and Duration to Take Shilajit
When you take shilait is just as important as how you take it. For maximized benefit and absorption, take shiljait on an empty stomach in the morning and then before each meal. If you find you get too energized by the substance, don’t take it in the evening to avoid difficulties with sleeping.
Most people who try shilajit continue to use it daily throughout their lives. Whether the benefits catch up to you immediately or take a couple of months, we recommend sticking to a daily routine with shilajit for optimal benefits and enhanced longevity.
