Lotus Blooming Herbs, featured in an LA Times article on shilajit, sells the only source of real shilajit in the US. Other sources provide lower grade versions of the mineral supplements or sadly, fakes. Authentic Shilajit, Lotus Blooming Herbs' brand, is personally sourced by its founder in the high-altitude Himalayas of India in a specific region. Read his story at Shilajit, Ayurvedic Medicine: An Obsession. If you are seeking relief from arthritis, depression, insomnia, or other illness, read the studies on the shilajit resources page of Lotus Blooming Herbs website. Many of our clients have shared testimonials on the website and our Authentic Shilajit Facebook page. Many report the best effects when shilajit dosages are combined with other supplements such as ubiquinol, a version of CoQ10. Read the studies and decide for yourself. We invite you to ask questions on our Facebook page.
