My Discovery of Pure Shilajit

Our flagship product, Authentic Shilajit™, is the highest grade, 100% pure, genuine and most powerful Himalayan shilajit available on earth. I first discovered shilajit while studying meditation and Tibetan Medicine in India, in 2000. A Yogi, living in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh, gave me a sample of Himalayan shilajit. He expounded on the wonders of shilajit. He credited his youthful vitality to his consumption of the black, gooey mineral substance. Upon first taste, I experienced an immediate and profound rush of energy and mental clarity. I felt strong, focused, and clear and at once became obsessed with this magical “blood of the mountains”!

I asked about purchasing some and was informed of the difficulty in obtaining authentic and pure shilajit. Because of its rarity and legendary power, Himalayan shilajit is highly prized and sought after in India. Therefore, many unscrupulous business people sell diluted and sometimes entirely fake substances claiming these products to be shilajit. Many companies use solvent extraction of common soil to draw out certain components that have been found in shilajit (fulvic acid and minerals) and then they sell the resulting standardized extract powder as shilajit. Genuine shilajit takes millions of years and perfect conditions to produce. It is found trapped within rocky cliffs at very high altitudes and in remote regions of the Himalayas. There are four different grades and the highest grade, Gold Grade pure shilajit, is virtually unavailable, even in India.

I spent years meeting and studying with Ayurvedic and Tibetan doctors and trekking to the most distant corners of the Himalayas in search of this rare and precious substance. After sampling many different grades and learning everything I could about shilajit, I met a family who had been collecting and purifying Gold Grade Shilajit for more than 500 years. We have been working in partnership with this family for several years now and the quality and potency of our shilajit is unmatched anywhere in the world.


Lotus Blooming Herbs is Born

Image representing Founder of Lotus Blooming Herbs and seeker of pure shilajit, Johann HelfAs a practitioner of Ayurveda, I have long been interested in the many amazing herbs of this ancient health practice. After sampling and learning about shilajit I knew that I need to find the real thing. My search for a source of authentic and naturally purified shilajit took a decade. In my travels throughout some of the highest altitudes and most remote mountain villages on earth, I literally risked my life to obtain this precious gift of nature. But the risks have been worth it to realize my dream of bringing pure shilajit to others. The result of my obsessive search for this remarkable substance is a legitimate source that produces pure, unadulterated, and authentic shilajit. My own use of it as well as our customer’s reviews are evidence that our shilajit retains all of the energetic power of the Himalayas.

I created Lotus Blooming Herbs to provide pure shilajit under the brand name Authentic Shilajit™. We continue to search the world for herbs and formulas of unparalleled efficacy and integrity. I have partnered with renowned Ayurvedic and Tibetan doctors to create effective, genuine formulas and products using only the highest quality, ethically sourced and exceptional gifts of nature.

Our main focus is on one branch of Ayurveda (the wellness system of Ancient India) known as Rasayana (Systemic Rejuvenation of Body & Mind). The formulas and teachings from this system nurture and support longevity, wellness and revitalization. Shilajit has long been touted as an important part of Rasayana practice. In keeping with this mission we also offer Authentic Chyawanprash™.

Chyawanprash is a masterpiece of herbal formulation used as a daily tonic to foster rejuvenation.  We adhere to the ancient manufacturing techniques established 5000 years ago by the Rishi, Sage Chyawan. It takes a full 21-day cycle to produce one batch of our Authentic Chyawanprash™.  All ingredients are prepared and added at the precise time and according to the traditional methods to maximize the effectiveness of this master wellness formula.

Our obsession with authenticity, ancestral wisdom, and phenomenal ingredients can be experienced in every product we offer. It is our sincere wish that our efforts will foster happiness and health in all who use them.


May all beings be happy, healthy and free!
