Ayurvedic, as well as modern research, have proved that Shilajit (or Salajeet) has numerous health benefits when consumed as a dietary supplement. However, its effectiveness for human health depends on the following factors:
A) Whether it is genuine and original or not.
B) Whether it has been purified completely or not.
C) Whether the recommended dose is being consumed regularly or not.
However, people also ask how much time taking Salajeet is important for its effectiveness?
What do Modern Researches say about the best time to take Shilajit?
Modern researchers are either silent regarding it, rather they have focused on the benefits and effectiveness of Salajeet in resolving various health problems. Few research must be conducted to find out if the time matters or not.
What do Ayurvedic Practitioners say about the best time to take Shilajit?
As for as Ayurvedic and traditional medical practitioners are concerned, they have a different opinions regarding the effectiveness of time of taking Shilajit.
On the contrary, few other are of the opinion that it should be taken in the morning on an empty stomach for maximum absorption. On the contrary, few other Ayurvedic practitioners suggest that Shilajit should be taken before going to bed.
In addition, some practitioners also opined that it can either be taken during the day or it can be consumed before going to bed.
In short, they think that the time of taking Salajeet does not matter much and it should be decided on the basis of personal requirements and choices.
Moreover, few traditional practitioners are of the considered opinion that Salajeet should be taken twice a day, i.e. in the morning and before going to bed.
After examination of the above-discussed opinions, we can say that:
(i) Salajeet has immense health benefits and its effectiveness depends upon the purity, genuineness, and regular consumption of the recommended dose.
(ii) The time of taking Shilajit does not matter much; however, the best opinion is to take it twice a day, i.e. in the morning and before going to bed, if one feels comfortable.
(iii) The best time to take it depends on the personal requirements and choices. For instance, for some people, it produces immense energy which disrupts their sleeping habits.
Keeping in view the above discussion, it is concluded that instead of worrying about the time of taking it, one must try to find pure and organic Shilajit.
Secondly, one should never consume more than the recommended dose. The recommended dose is 250mg to 500mg daily.
