Analgesic & Anti-inflammatory Properties of Shilajit

Some of the most common over-the-counter drugs availed by the population are analgesic or pain relievers. They are useful in suppressing pain, reducing inflammation, and swelling, making them the go-to medication for simple ailments. They are practical as well, with most, taking effect in less than an hour. But like any other drugs, these painkillers may have side effects. When used long-term, they could destroy the mucous membrane of your stomach and intestines, cause damage to your kidney that could lead to renal failure, and even do serious harm to your liver.  

Nature has provided us with alternatives. Ginger, Turmeric, and Capsaicin, to name a few are popular natural remedies. The benefits of analgesics could be reaped minus these harmful side effects when herbal remedies and natural healing agents are used. A substance called shilajit that occurs from the high mountain rocks of the Himalayas is one naturally occurring substance with strong analgesic properties. It is a by-product of the plant decomposition aided by microorganism activity. So effective is shilajit in healing a plethora of ailments that it is one of the most effective Ayurvedic medicine systems today. 

Anti-inflammatory properties & anti-ulcerogenic properites.

In 1971, a study was conducted with rats to show the possible anti-inflammatory effects.  At a dose of 50mg/kg, there was a significant reduction of carrageenan-induced hind paw edema in rats — a comparable result to phenylbutazone and betamethasone in higher dosages.

Shilajit was found to increase the carbohydrate/protein ratio and decreased the gastric ulcer index indicating an increase in the mucus membrane preventing the formation of ulcers as well.  Although these tests were done with rats, the results support the claim that shilajit has pain relieving qualities.

Another study showed that the shilajit resin was highly effective in treating paradontosis, or gum inflammation. They also found out that it helped regulated the pain associated with osteoarthrosis (joint disease, degeneration of articular cartilage), rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (arthritis affecting the spine) and cervical spondylosis (arthritis affecting the neck, joints, and discs of the cervical spine). 

The source of the benefit may be attributable to the high fulvic acid content found in shilajit. Fulvic acids and the triterpenoids possess potent anti-inflammatory properties, as discovered by Ghosal and contemporaries. Later studies also supported this conclusion. Bacteriostatic benefits from shilajit also facilitate wound cleaning from necrotic tissues and significantly lowered the wound healing duration.

The findings of the study have monumental implications on the impact of shilajit as an anti-inflammatory agent. Not only does this confirm and support the claim of shilajit to decrease inflammation, but it also established, to a degree, that it may not have side effects common to pain-relieving drugs, as evidenced by its ability to increase mucous membranes in the gastrointestinal lining preventing ulcer.
