Shilajit, also called mineral pitch, is the result of a long process of breaking down plant matter and minerals. It is a sticky, black tar-like substance that comes from rocks in high mountain ranges. 

Shilajit has been used in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine for the centuries, and the compounds in it appear to be beneficial for many conditions. 

Shilaji was traditionally sourced in India and Tibet, though it is now found in many other countries.
