Questions and Answers
I have recently purchased several "brain-boosting" herbs online, as well as some energy-promoting ones. I can find vaporizing temperatures for all of them except Ashwaganda Root. I think I made the inaccurate assumption that I could vaporize it. Is it safe to vaporize? I do not have the powder, rather, the sifted root. If I cannot vaporize it, what should I do with it?
I think you may have been misinformed on a couple things. First, Ashwagandha (Indian Ginseng) is really more for energy and stress, not for "brain boosting"… But Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng) is for energy and brain health.
Second, most herbs you could buy in a health food store are really only beneficial in the way they are listed if they are ingested (swallowed), not inhaled (vaporized)… Heck, some of the herbs for brain health like Ginkgo or Bacopa Monnieri would smell pretty bad if you vaporized them.
In any case, if you wanted to chop it into small chunks or powderize it, Ashwaganda is normally recommended to take half a gram once or twice a day for stress and energy, but you wouldn't want to take too much either. If you bought it from someone that told you it was for brain health, I'd try to return it to them for false advertising. Good luck and I hope I helped!
I am not fat, I am tall and 112 lbs and I am 14 my doctor said that was underweight for my age which I was surprised I was not fat because all the food at my house is junk or processed food. I play a lot of sports and get a lot of exercise but I still feel horrible, I have chess pains,stomach pains, and when I sit down my legs go numb and start to change color. So I looked it up online and they said I need a better diet…well how in the heck am I suppose to have a healthy diet when I am not the one who buys groceries??? I started to take multi vitamins and shaklee vitamins because maybe that will help?
Oh and every time I bring up healthy food to my mom she just laughs and says " nobody gunna eat that lettuce crap. Have a cookie instead"
It really pisses me off.

Planet Ayurveda – www.planetayurveda.com/
This is a company based in India. It has a number of Ayurvedic products in its shelf. Shipping is quite fast for a company that is shipping directly from India. Shilajit concentration per capsule : 500 mg – Fuvic acid concentration – Not mentioned.
Price: U.S.$42.95 – (This is the minimum purchase)
Review: The Company is reputable. But the drawbacks are that there are several products in the shelf and shilajit is commoditized. The minimum purchase is U.S.$42.95 which is high. The Shilajit per capsule is 500 milligram (mg) only (though most shilajit brands offer anything from 300 mg – 500 mg). The fulvic acid concentration is not mentioned.
DABUR Shilajit Gold
Dabur is one of the reputed companies in the field of ayurvedic medicines. Its Shilajit gold is quite popular. However you cannot buy it directly from the company through the internet. There are a number of resellers where you can buy it from. Another major drawback is that the company does not clearly mention the amount of Shilajit in milligrams per capsule. There is also no mention of Fulvic acid content. Another major reason why Shilajit Gold has to be approached with caution is the fact that this shilajit contains Gold Bhasma or mono atomic gold. Mono atomic gold should not be taken for anything more than a couple of days.
This website basically offers Dabur Shilajit a reseller. Price wise for one bottle it is U.S.25. The shipping is free. As with Dabur shilajit it has no mention of the amount of Shilajit per capsule or the fulvic acid content. This website also claims to be affiliated with Baba Ramdev a yoga guru from India. They also have a number of Aurvedic products.
Review: The product is a resold item. Quite expensive at U.S.$25 per bottle. No mention of shilajit content per capsule nor the fulvic acid content.

Rudramani Shilajit : Http://www.rudramani.com
RUDRAMANI SHILAJIT is a fairly well known brand offering Shilajit. Their main processing plant is located in India on the eastern Indian side of Himalayan Mountains (close to Dharamshala in Himachal Pardesh). The raw shilajit harvested from Himalayan Mountains is processed in the plant nearby. They have ISO 9002 Certification of the processing factory and GMP – Good Manufacturing Procedure as per WHO standards. These certificates are sent along with every order. Shilajit seems to be the only product they are dealing in so best attention can be expected.
The Shilajit content per capsule is – 1000 milligrams (mg) which is almost double of the other brands seen above. They also seem to use a patented process involving flash drying and vacuum filtration to achieve highest concentration of Fulvic acid.
They are known to be customer friendly offering individual attention. They also do surprise the buyers by offering unexpected free gifts. Currently they are offering Free bottles of Ashwagandha (Withanis Somnifera) with every order of shilajit. Ashwagandha goes extremely well with shilajit and has a number of beneficial properties.
Price wise RUDRAMANI SHILAJIT is also the least expensive and pocket friendly. One packet of Shilajit – 1000 mg – 60% Fulvic acid – 1 month’s supply costs – U.S.$9.99/- there is a onetime packing and shipping cost of U.S.$9 (which is fixed even if 100 packets are ordered in one go). They do shipping either from Columbus, Ohio, USA or from India. Either way the delivery is done within a maximum of 10 days.
Review; RUDRAMANI SHILAJIT seems to be the least expensive as well as offering high concentration of Shilajit (1000 mg) with 60% Fulvic acid. They also send all documents including ISO 9002 certification, GMP (World Health Organization norms) certification and a United States Food and Drug Authority prior notification (USFDA – Prior Notice) documents along with each order. A phone number where orders can be placed would have been better.
