What To Avoid When Using Shilajit
Hormone and Cancer medication.You can take any organic product together with shilajit. It is even better because Shilajit helps with nutrients delivery to the cells. For the same reason, we do not recommend taking it together with prescription drugs. That better distribution might play a negative role if the dosage was strictly regulated. You can take Shilajit when you are taking other meds, but you have to keep at least a 2-hour gap between them. If you are under serious health conditions, you have to consult with your doctor first.Tap Water. Tap water is most likely chlorinated. Chlorine however happens to be a sort of chemical that reacts with other molecules easily. It can form some toxic substance like dioxin, DDT, PCBs, etc. together with shilajit or other organic supplements. Therefore, instead of using tap water, it is advised that you utilize distilled, spring or active charcoal carbon filtered water.Heat. We spend big efforts to preserve natural molecular bound in our shilajit. If you boil/cook an organic product, it will lose some of the important properties which it had in raw form. We advise that you should not expose it to continuous heat above 165F. You can put it in a hot tea right before the consumption, but do not brew or boil it together.Alcohol. Shilajit is very useful from a hangover, but taking it together with alcohol may give an unusual effect. Sometimes it works like an energy drink that wakes you up. Other time it may increase the level of alcohol intoxication (being drunk). We do not recommend taking it together because it won’t produce any positive health effect, rather, could get you accidentally overdosed.Allergy. Please be cautious when taking Shilajit with any products that may trigger an allergic response as it may have the potential to make the immune systems more sensitive when initially consumed. Stop taking Shilajit if any severe allergic reactions occur.
