Shilajit helps to reduce triglycerides by 21.7%, LDL-C by 22.6%, vLDL-C by 20.6% (bad cholesterol), and increase HDL-C by 5.8% (good cholesterol). (Patel,K Oct 2019)
Studies have found semen analysis of infertile men or those with low sperm count (oligospermic) taking 200mg of Shilajit daily for 90 days have a 9.8% increase in FSH, (Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) cause the testes to produce testosterone and sperm). Also noted was improved sperm parameters including volume (37.6%), count (61.4%), motility (12.4-17.4%), the percent of sperm with normal morphology (18.9%) coupled with a reduction in lipid peroxidation levels (MDA) in the semen (18.7%), (Patel,K Oct 2019).
Testosterone and Sports Nutrition
In depth research analysis by Patel, K (2019) shows an increase of 23.5% in testosterone levels, whilst studies by Levy. J, Sept (2019) show fulvic acid transports minerals and other nutrients to cells more effectively, boosts absorption rates of nutrients by making cells more permeable and fights inflammation. Subjects taking Shilajit report improvements in energy levels, probably due to increased detoxification, lower levels of inflammation and free radical damage, and higher intakes of electrolytes and other key nutrients that this super-nutrient provides.

Carrasco-Galardo et al (2012) writes in the International Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, Shilajit is safe and potent dietary supplement, which has the potential to prevent several diseases. Its ability to reduce the build-up of Tau Protein suggests results in the medical application that benefit cognitive function (memory) and potentially as a dietary supplement to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. In essence, this is a nutraceutical product (a functional food with physiological benefits).
