Shilajit & Testosterone

What Is Shilajit?

Shilajit is a mix of minerals from Ayurvedic Medicine (5,000 year old natural healing system from India) that provides a host of health benefits ranging from better energy to improved brain health.

Although Shilajit has traditionally been used for ages, its introduction to the West is still relatively new.

As such, not many studies have been performed with it.

Is It A Testosterone Booster?

As for its effects on testosterone, there’s been only one human study:

  • 60 infertile men given 200mg of Shilajit daily experienced a 23.5% increase in testosterone levels after 90 days of use (10).

Although an effect of the same extent is unlikely to carry on to an otherwise healthy man, the positive interaction with testosterone is clearly there.
