In the subcontinent, Salajeet (or Shilajit) is used to counter numerous health problems. The Ayurvedic physicians generally prescribe it to cure jaundice, enlarged spleen, treatment of diabetes, digestive problems, gall bladder disease, fermentative dyspepsia, dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, and renal calculi, etc.
Moreover, it is also used for the treatment of eczema, anemia, anorexia, chronic bronchitis, fracture of bones, urinary disease, and various other health issues.
Further, it has numerous other benefits and uses including improvement in the immune system and heart health. However, when it comes to heart health, high care is needed.
In this regard, it is very important to study the impacts of Salajit on blood and blood pressure. Basically, it is a natural dietary supplement useful for the treatment of hypertension. I
n Asia, some businesses have introduced Salajit containing proprietary drugs to be used for heart health and hypertension.
Owing to the lack of research and clinical study on the subject “Does Salajeet affect blood pressure”, it is difficult to substantiate the discussion with references to scientific research. Before discussing its impacts on blood pressure, it is very important to know briefly about hypertension.
High blood pressure or hypertension, which is also termed a silent killer, is a serious condition where the chances of heart attacks and stroke increased manifolds.
In the USA alone, more than four lac people die yearly because of hypertension. If not treated in time, the liver, brain, and kidneys of the patient may also get damaged.
The impacts of Salajeet on blood chemistry were studied in India by SMS Medical College, Jaipur, and the National Institute of Ayurveda.
The twenty participants consumed two grams of Shilajit daily for forty-five days while a placebo pill was given to the rest of the participants.
Observations were recorded and concluded at the end of the trial that a visible change in blood pressure, body weight, or pulse rate could not be noticed in the participants who consumed Salajeet.
However, they found that the lipid profile of this participant decreased which indicates an anti-hyperlipidemic and cardio-protective effects. It bears mention that hyperlipidemia is a condition in which the fats or lipids in the blood increases causing blockages of blood vessels.
Hence, ultimately increases blood pressure. As discussed above Salajeet has an anti-hyperlipidemic effect which means it lessens cholesterol in human blood.
Bear in mind we want to know the answer to “Does Salajeet affects blood pressure i.e. whether it increases or decreases blood pressure?” In order to answer this question, one must understand how blood pressure is linked with hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol.
Let’s have a look at the relationship. High Blood pressure and high cholesterol increase with each other, hence having a directly proportional relationship.
In high cholesterol conditions, the extra cholesterol deposits along the walls of the arteries which results in stiffness and narrowness of arteries. Hence, the human heart exerts more pressure to pass the blood through them consequently, causes high blood pressure.
In a nutshell Salajeet, neither increases nor decreases the blood pressure directly. It actually reduces the body’s lipid levels and hence decreases blood pressure indirectly.
In other words, it has no direct impact on hypertension but decreasing the lipid levels improves arterial and heart health.
For a normal person, the Ayurvedic physicians recommended using Salajeet in order to improve heart health. While for those who have active heart disease should not use Salajeet without consulting a specialist because of the sensitivity and complexity involved in hearth related diseases.
