Shilajit is a natural substance and has very few side effects.
Increased Uric Acid
This unique substance can increase the amount of uric acid in the body, which can make conditions like kidney stones, gout, or gouty arthritis worse. We recommend that if you suffer from any of those three conditions, you should refrain from taking it.
Since shilajit contains nearly a full daily amount of iron, you may run the risk of adding too much iron to your diet if you eat lots of iron rich foods or take a vitamin supplement that includes iron. Symptoms of excess iron in the bloodstream include stomach pain, nausea and vomiting.
Other Health Considerations
Check with your doctor if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you have any health concerns.
Because every person’s body chemistry is unique, it is impossible to determine whether or not someone will have a reaction to taking shilajit. Here are a few possible concerns you should discuss with your doctor before taking our product or any other on the market.
1. If You Have Diabetes
Shilajit has been used for years as a treatment for diabetes, due to its unique ability to lower blood sugar naturally. If you are currently taking medication to control your diabetes, you need to discuss possibly compensating to avoid any side effects.
2. Pregnant or Nursing Women
There are not currently any studies of shilajit or usage by women who are nursing or pregnant. Thus, you should avoid taking this product if you are doing either of these things, to avoid any possible side effects.
Tips for Taking Your Daily Dose
Most shilajit side effects are due to incorrectly taking our product. Here are a few tips to consider and put into effect when starting to take a daily dose:
Use a Quality Product
Shilajit is one of the most commonly counterfeited items. Do your research and make sure you’re using a product that isn’t stuffed with fillers. It especially easy to counterfeit powder and capsule shilajit. If possible, avoid these forms altogether. Remember, Premium Shilajit is pure, potent, and quality. Just check out our Certificate of Analysis to see!
Don’t get excited to see the benefits and start taking a large amount in your first dose. This is a common reason people experience side effects such as increased urination or increased bile levels. Start small, and work your way up to a full dose.
Take With Food
We recommend taking shilajit on an empty stomach to increase absorption into the bloodstream. If you experience lightheaded-ness or other problems, take with food.
Talk to Your Doctor
Every person is unique, and each person is taking a different variety of medications, vitamins, and minerals.
