Raw Shilajit Extract Powder
Shilajit’s origin lies in the ancient organic plant material preserved in the dark crevices of the Himalayan Mountains. As the sun warms up the mountain and melts the snow, a soft, heavy resin seeps out and is collected by local farmers. This thick resin is then dried and ground into a fine powder known as shilajit, meaning “rock-invincible” in Sanskrit. It has a natural smoky flavor and is high in iron with important nutrients like fulvic acid, calcium, selenium and magnesium.  

The Sunfood Difference™
Our Shilajit powder is meticulously harvested by hand at high altitudes to ensure the purest product possible. It is then low-temperature dried and tested to be free of pollutants. As a highly potent herb, our Shilajit Extract Powder’s general serving requirements are minimal, so a small portion goes a long way.

Customer Reviews

Shilajit is POWERFUL Review by OrganicDude
I don't think you can find a better value for the money than Sunfood brand Raw Shilajit. This product has remarkable purity and content. I have been using it for 2 weeks so far and no longer use caffeine. I don't have too. Shilajit gives me constant energy and I feel amazing. My mental focus is better and I really am amazed by this Shilajit. Had I known this brand was this incredible I would have tried it a long time ago. The taste on it's own is bitter and smoky but if you used as an ingredient in hot chocolate or a smoothie is much less pungent. GREAT STUFF!!! (Posted on 5/8/2016)
Wow!! Review by Creid6
The smell reminds me of pile of ashes, from a fireplace... Nothing too terrible.. I didn't want to mix it with anything to mask it, wanted to see if the taste lingered. A small amount of water, and 1/4 teaspoon, and I just gulped it down.. I'm pretty picky and I had no trouble, and the taste dissipated in seconds. Now, for how I feel.... I feel like I can face the challenges of my day without dragging my behind.. I've suffered from severe adrenal fatigue for quite some time, and this powder gives me hope... So happy I found Sunfood!

Reminds me of Lapsang Souchong tea Review by Peter Stone Jewelry
I mix several herbs and they are just OK in taste, but when I topped off my herbal concoction with the Shilajit I was taken to another dimension in flavor and seemingly another stage of elevated health in my feeling of presence; the taste alone seemed to raise my awareness in the moment... I look forward to adding this to my drink and it is easy to "not forget" as this is now the key flavouring element in my daily morning Herbal drink! Missing... I definitely know it!

To you Health and well-being! ))))

Be realistic: Expect many miracles everyday! (Posted on 10/18/2015)
Awesome stuff! Review by lee
My husband loves this and I do put it in capsules for him because he would never drink it.. I just started taking Shilajit and do feel more energy..Good minerals are so important as the dirt where our food is grown is depleted. Even organic food doesn't have all the minerals like it should.Good price to..I bought some of the resin Shilajit from Russia and my Rd. muscle tested it on me and it made me go weak so i threw it out...Sunfood's Shiajit was tested and I stayed strong which I am very happy about!

Good Stuff. Review by Deb
My husband love this and says it gives him energy.. I put it in empty capsules and he takes in morning and late afternoon. (Posted on 9/29/2015)
Can you handle it?? Review by Ruth
Shilajit is not for the faint of heart. The taste is very overpowering just as its health benefits.

I definitely felt great after blending it into my morning smoothie. However, I did tend to chug it due to the odd smokey taste. (Posted on 9/12/2015)
Excellent Review by Doreen
I put it in my mixture chocolate drink every morning. The taste adds another dimension to the many ingredients I already put into it. It's good and have absolutely no problem with smell or taste. (Posted on 7/17/2015)
Definitely a smell Review by Dan San
The first thing any purchaser will notice is the smell. It definitely has an earthy aroma all it's own. I haven't actually went and tasted this stuff, but would rather consume it via DIY caps. I have been taking this stuff for awhile and have noticed my days been going much longer without the need of any extra stimulants to keep me awake from early morning through the end of the work day. I've also noticed workouts going more smoothly. But the smell... the smell took me back to some other time where I thought I had smelled it before. Definitely provides energy! (Posted on 7/6/2015)
Don't mind the taste. Review by Janell
I have been taking Shilajit from Sunfood for over a month now. I put it in my coffee in the morning. It adds a woodsy flavor that I do not mind at all! Kind of like it actually. Makes me feel better to take it. Great product. (Posted on 5/5/2015)
Great Stuff Review by Tommy
DIY capsules! This stuff is great, but I HAD to put it into capsules to take it. Makes a HUGE difference in my energy, Highly recommend it. BUT take the time to put it into capsules...otherwise I might not have stuck with it. The flavor is kind of tough for me. (Posted on 2/5/2015)
Awesome product. Thank you for providing this gift Review by Expression of Love
I've been eagerly awaiting my Shilajit powder and happily came home after work today to gratefully find it waiting for me. I began by smelling the powder through deep inhalations and was immediately struck by its incredibly deep earthy tones. In fact, this is probably the deepest earth smell I've ever smelled! Personally, I took an immediate liking to the ''herb''. I believe in the power of getting to know your super herbs / foods on a ''one on one'' basis however do find it challenging with the comfort of just tossing everything into the blender and ''throwing'' it down the hatch.

After reading about its properties and qualities, I put 1/4tsp into around 8oz of pure water. I swirled it around and took a sip. I let it linger in my mouth to best absorb the essence of this gift from Nature. The taste is wonderful to me. It screams nourishment. Personally, I believe that my body has been lacking various minerals and this food is providing just what I've been missing.

Here's to Health! :) (Posted on 10/15/2014)
Energy & great taste Review by Janet
My son and I both use this product. I put Shilajit in my chocolate protein shake along with almond milk and cacao. In this blend I rather liked the smokey taste and now don't even notice that it is in my shake. We also get good energy. (Posted on 10/3/2014)
Can really feel a difference! Review by Michelle
I definitely feel in a better mood. More clarity and energy..More..younger I guess you could say. And this just from the past couple days! I am looking forward to even more improvements in the future. SO happy with this and the other purchases I've made from this site as well like the Marine Phytoplankton, Sachi Inchi Powder, Chlorella and more. I wish I had discovered this site sooner but I am happy I finally did. I feel like a million$$$! I know I sound completely over the top but I am truly grateful. **Oh and as far as the taste I put it in my morning smoothie with my Lucuma powder, organic almond milk and organic blueberries and raw honey. I can hardly taste a hint of 'smokiness'. So no complaints here :) (Posted on 7/25/2014)
Very potent Review by Leotis
It's a very good product that gave me lots of energy (Posted on 7/3/2014)
A Bag of Petting Zoo Review by Bleenders
So, I was excited to try my shilajit,...and I had already read that it smells like a petting zoo but I don't think I was quite prepared for the actual smell/taste. It is NOT smokey. It does NOT taste like coffee. If it should, I clearly have something else in my bag. What I have smells like powdered "dung" FROM the petting zoo. There is no doubt that it does give me more energy etc however the taste is a bit too hard to get past. I've tried "dung" tea, "dung" water, "dung" smoothies, "dung" mochas,....and now, "dung" capsules. I don't consider myself "sensitive" to tastes however I just cannot consume this without it being INSIDE a capsule. Even licking my fingers after encapsulating a few caused coughing and gagging. :-/ (Posted on 6/10/2014)
Ayuervedic Herb is good for you! Review by Pema
So, I find the taste a little difficult at times but I have found it works well in some teas (like Puh-er) and Chili. Especially if you do a chili with smoked paprika or some chipotle peppers to add to the flavor. Though as one can not eat chili all the time... I am also going to have to invest in capsules and find a way to do them because the smell can be hard for me to handle at times in it's raw form. (Posted on 6/5/2014)
Hide The Strong Taste in Raw Fudge Review by Mary
These measurements are approximate. (I don't measure.) Mash 3 Tbls of raw, organic coconut oil (solidified) with some organic coconut nectar, approx. a tablespoon, to make the coconut oil easier to mix with a heaping tablespoon of raw, organic cacao. Add a few drops of vanilla extract and 1/8 teaspoon of shilajit . Add more coconut nectar if the mixture is too dry. I also add in some stevia (< 1/2 packet), if needed or leave it out entirely. (The coconut nectar is not as sweet as something like agave.) (Posted on 3/26/2014)
S-T-R-O-N-G Flavor Review by Kristya
I don't think I could get past the strong flavor if it wasn't for my Sun is Shining. When mixed, I can hardly taste or smell it and since shilajit assists in absorption of nutrients and SIS has a ton of them, the duo works out perfect. (Posted on 3/6/2014)
Strong taste Review by Kristi
I am still trying to figure how to consume this. Tried it on hot chocolate, that was ok and probably best way yet. Then tried it in lapsang souchong hot tea as I figured that a smokey hot tea would hide taste. It didn't. Then mixed it with a spoon of honey. Had to eat another spoonful to get rid of aftertaste then resorted to a lemon drop.

The best way to describe the odor/taste is not smokey. Imagine an ancient barnyard, not the stable type, but a barnyard that has had cows, goats, and horses and at least 50 years of rich silty soil built up. Well, that is exactly what it smells like. The powder will waft up from bag, cling to nostrils and clothing and just hang with you. It brought me back to our old barnyard we once owned and I always smelled of it as I spent time there with horses and goats.

I am hopeful this stuff will work. Worth a try.

Sunfood Admin Note:
Shilajit can be very powerful, in the benefits and nutrients it provides, and the taste and smell.
It can be overwhelming to some sensitive people. Sunfood recommends encapsulating your Shilajit if you find the taste or smell too strong for you.

The BENEFITS of taking this product are worth the product's STRONG taste! Review by lora
I agree with some other reviewers that Shilajit is an "acquired taste": This stuff is POTENT (a little goes a long way), so I will continue to add Shilajit powder to my morning smoothie, however I will always only use 1/8 of a teaspoon of Shilajit so that it's strong, bitter, flavor doesn't completely OVERPOWER my entire smoothie! (LOL) (Posted on 2/14/2014)

Ulcer Cure Review by Fred
For years my breakfast in the morning would consist only of coffee and cigarettes. I don't think I need to explain why but this wrecked my stomach. I had constant stomach pain that was especially bad in the morning and never any appetite. If I didn't have ulcers then I was on my way to having them. Pepto and Tums would always make me throw up, but now that I have this, I don't need things like that anymore. No stomach pain or heart burn at all after only days of taking this. No feeling of my stomach being painfully acidic anymore. My mother who has been diagnosed as having ulcers says it helps her pain too. Lets be honest, it doesn't look, smell, or taste very good, but that doesn't matter because the effects are so noticeably incredible. It makes me feel calm and more balanced and focused, and could be a good coffee substitute. I find its great for the skin as well. I will never stop using this product. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
I was determined to find a way to incorporate it into my life Review by Holly
Knowing the amazing benefits from taking shilajit, even though the taste was a bit strong for me. So, I decided to encapsulate it and I’ve been taking it on a daily basis for the past month. Within a few days, my overall mood was more positive and my minor back pain subsided. Also my energy level and mental clarity is extremely improved. I used to drink an average of 3 x 15oz cups a coffee just to make it through the day. But now my coffee use has decreased so that I barely finish my second cup and I still feel good at the end of my day. I’m so thankful for shilajit! (Posted on 10/31/2013)
I have been into health and raw and super foods for years. Review by Jay
I have also suffered from debilitating inflammation in my muscles and joints for the past 15 years. Despite having tried almost every natural approach, the only thing that could ever bring me real relief was taking a certain brand of over-the-counter NSAID medication. That is until I tried Sunfood shilajit.

After learning that it has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic medicinal system to help treat inflammation, among many other things, I decided to give it a try. Within 3 days of taking shilajit, I experienced more pain relief and better mobility than I ever have before. I have now been taking it for 4 weeks and if I miss a day, I certainly notice the difference. I don’t ever want to be without this product. (Posted on 10/31/2013)
Just got it... Review by nanz
At first smell and taste...Yowzers powerful...and I was not sure I could do it. But I added the 1/8th teaspoon to my morning shake....could not even notice the taste or smell....ok going to let Shilajit do its magic now...stay tuned for next report! (Posted on 10/13/2013)
Quality product. The real deal! Review by Carey
Very smokey aroma.. Blends well with cacao. The zip lock feature of the bag is quite weak; does not seal. Do your research, this will actually melt as true Shilajit is supposed to. (Posted on 9/4/2013)

Smokin' Milkshake! Review by NANPSY
Shilajit is AWESOME!

Make a cup of burdock tea and add 1/4-1/2 tsp of shilajit and a cup of vanilla bean infused Brazil nut milk.

Then blend with enough ice to make it nice and thick.


So happy I stuck with this order.

VERY pleased.

Shilajit for champions only :-) Review by Anarkali
It's difficult to say that Shilajit tastes good. However, I've found that it does indeed make me feel balanced and energized! (Posted on 4/5/2012)
Whoa Review by Faye
Very potent. It is dark brown and smells like smoke unlike some of the cheaper shilajit out there. I add a pinch or two to a smoothie made with cacao, banana, and mesquite for a morning pick-me-up. If i need a fast fix for clearing my mind, I will disolve a half teaspoon in my mouth, but I don't recommend this unless you need it. (Posted on 10/6/2011)
