The mysterious Himalayan excrement I found in my local pharmacy has nothing appealing about it, but I could not resist the temptation to try it.
I rummaged in my favorite CBD and Kratom area, Hidden Hemp, when I spotted several glasses of shilajit sitting innocently behind a glass cabinet. It's called Shilajit. It's sticky like old caramel, smells like gum, looks like tar, and honestly does not taste much better. Traditionally referred to as the "destroyer of weakness," this thick adaptogenic ayurvedic resin is said to contain more than 84 minerals, support the immune system, increase energy and endurance, boost testosterone in men, and reduce the inflammatory response.
This bizarre black substance is being touted as the kind of cure that gets people like me (you guys who like to try strange shit in the name of self-discovery) all hot and molested. After devoting some shilajit to one, I devoted one to one. For a whole month, I had experienced the supposed effects of this mysterious resin. I had no special goals for my exam ̵
What is Shilajit?
The supplement comes in a small glass bottle with a weirdly small spoon that measures a pea-sized portion of the material, which means that it can take months, if recorded correctly.
