FAQ

MOUNTAINDROP

t
WHY MOUNTAINDROP?
MOUNTAINDROP is a registered dietary supplement. It is a high-altitude herbomineral sediment (‘mountain pitch’) known as mumio (moomiyo), mumieasphaltum or shilajit, in its pure natural form.

It is packed in an informed jar made of special violet glass, which blocks harmful light rays and thereby preserves the original energetic properties of the substance.

ARE SIMILAR POWDERED PRODUCTS RECOMMENDED?

The mumio (orshilajit) substance occurs naturally as resin-like drops. Its viscosity changes according to the temperature. Other aggregate states or forms (like powder, tablets etc.) require the processing of the raw ingredient and adding other substances, including chlorinated water. During this processing, the substance loses its precious properties and energy, which has also been proved by a dowser measuring its purity and biofield.

The perfection of nature lies in its simplicity. When we modify the fruits it offers, we also modify their primordial essence, which can do more harm than good. There are a lot of powdered products on the market; in their case, the water contained in the original substance has been removed. With the modified composition of a substance, its original energy and properties will change.

MOUNTAINDROP is mumio (or shilajit) in its original form, only subjected to a simple cleaning process. This ensures its faultlessness and effectiveness as a dietary supplement.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF MOUNTAINDROP?
  • 100% natural product in its pure, original form.
  • High bio-potential and energetic cleanliness of the product.
  • Hand-packed with love.
  • Obtained without acid or chlorinated water.
  • Packed in a special purple glass which retains the original characteristics of the product.

Manufacturing process

Shilajit is a natural substance. When Shilajit is found in nature, it accumulates in a basin with clean warm water where it separates from the parts of stone and dirt. No chemical compounds are used in this procedure. When Shilajit is clean, it is hand-packed in glass jars, ready to use.

Safety report

HOW DOES MOUNTAINDROP WORK?
The minerals in it are in ionic form, which enables better absorption into tissues. As a consequence, the potential of the substance is much higher.
CAN MOUNTAINDROP BE TAKEN WITH OTHER SUPERFOODS?
MOUNTAINDROP enhances their potential.
WHAT ARE THE PROPERTIES OF THE PACKAGING?
MOUNTAINDROP is a powerful herbomineral substance hand-poured into informed jars made of violet glass. The jars are sealed with a unique design by the renowned Slovenian academy-trained painter and designer Catherina Zavodnik – a symbol that preserves the energetic purity of the content. The jar is bound with a gold-coloured ribbon in a bow – a symbol of infinity and abundance.
WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS OF MOUNTAINDROP?
Because mumio (or shilajit) affects the metabolism of sugars, diabetics need to monitor their blood sugar level on a regular basis.

Mumio (or shilajit) contains phenylalanine and is contraindicated for people with phenylketonuria (PKU).

If you are pregnant or lactating or under a doctor’s care for any health condition, you should consult your physician before taking this or any other supplement.

HOW SHOULD MOUNTAINDROP BE TAKEN AND IN WHAT QUANTITIES?
The product is traditionally taken once a day, dissolved in warm water, tea or milk with a temperature up to 39°C. Filtered and non-chlorinated water is recommended. The initial doses should be the size of a grain of wheat and later up to the size of a pea. Ghee (clarified butter), coconut butter or honey can also be added to the solution.

INTAKE: With a spoon, break off a piece of shilajit in the size of a grain of wheat or in the size of a pea and dissolve it in 200 ml of fluid. Shilajit dissolves fully within a few minutes. Stir and consume.

The recommended daily intake (0.2 to 0.6 g) should not be exceeded.

After three weeks of intake, a one-week break is recommended.

DOES MUMIE (SHILAJIT) HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
If used in the right way and dosage, Shilajit is not associated with any serious side effects. In cases where someone takes iron supplements along with Shilajit, it could lead to building up of an excess iron in the blood, as Shilajit contains a pretty high amount of iron. In very rare cases, it could aggravate gout or lower the blood pressure. But apart from those three cases, Shilajit is perfectly safe even in higher than normal quantities.

Side effects from Shilajit may be indicative of a low-quality Shilajit, or something that claims to be Shilajit but is not really so. Be aware that many Shilajit supplements on the market are not exactly what they are reported to be. Some of these contain fertilizer. Others contain toxic heavy metals. Be sure you are getting the right stuff.

Possible fulvic acid side effects may similarly occur, if taken in an isolated form, as it is not in the same arrangement that a real Shilajit will be in.

For many, Shilajit is best taken with food to minimize any light-headedness that can occur.

However, it is always a good idea to listen to your body and stop taking Shilajit if you notice symptoms of an allergic reaction, which may include nausea, dizziness, increased heart rate, itchiness etc. Keep in mind that this counts for everything we ingest and there were no reported cases of severe allergic reactions to Shilajit.

Of course, it’s always best to talk to your physician before taking any supplements, especially in cases where you already take prescribed drugs.

If you take a very high dose, Shilajit might increase uric acid levels which in turn can lead to increased bile levels resulting in more problems. However, this happens only when a very large dose is administrated.
