We all know Shilajit has a wide array of beneficial effects on our health. We already covered what it can do for sports performance, how it affects the health of women and men, its usage in cosmetics, and basically everything else in between. On our path of discovery, we also stopped at its ingredients, quality, and history. However, while covering this many topics, we almost (but didn’t) forget about a very important group of people. Of course, we’re talking about our seniors. When we reach our golden years, we realize that our health may not be what it used to be and consequently, start to put more effort into maintaining longevity and a healthy lifestyle that will keep us active and healthy for many more years. And just as it happens, Shilajit is a perfect supplement that could help us reach this goal. We’ll try to give you our thought on Shilajit for seniors in 5 points, however, we feel like we could make this list a lot longer. But for now, let’s focus on the main things. Let’s go.


As all of you know, Shilajit is one of nature’s strongest natural immune system boosters. And coincidentally, our own immune system tends to lose its power when we get older. Just as you probably can’t run as fast as you used to in your 20s, your immune system doesn’t work as well as it used to. But, compared to many other bodily functions, most people’s immune systems actually do really great at any age. Our immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs, so no matter how old you are, there’s a lot you can do to stay healthy. Shilajit falls directly into this category since it can do a lot for your immune system with very little work. Since it contains over 85 beneficial ingredients that include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, DPSs, fulvic acid, and much more, it makes sense that it becomes a staple in our everyday routine. A lot of our older customers report great results as they feel more energized and healthier in their everyday lives.

Shilajit for seniors


And by this, we don’t mean athletes and other sports enthusiasts, even though it will have a similar effect on them, just not in the same context. By this we mean the fact, that as you age, joint movement becomes stiffer and less flexible because the amount of lubricating fluid inside your joints decreases, and the cartilage becomes thinner. Ligaments also tend to shorten and lose some flexibility, making joints feel stiff. Muscles are less toned and less able to contract because of changes in the muscle tissue and normal aging changes in the nervous system. Muscles may become rigid with age and may lose tone, even with regular exercise. Shilajit, with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory function on the neurotransmitter level, reduces the sensation of pain while providing much-needed healing support for your joints, ligaments, and muscles. Potassium and Zinc play an important role here since they strengthen muscle tone, act as a shock absorber for excessively acidic pH values while also protecting cells from oxidative stress. This is why Shilajit can play such a vital role in the life of a senior, as it helps with keeping you strong and quick on your feet.

This one might come as a surprise, but a lot of people find Shilajit really helpful with stomach and intestinal problems. Many of our customers use it to treat stomach ulcers that are actually a very common problem. For instance, Seniors may also have unusual symptoms of more serious digestive disorders that can easily be missed. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) tends to be more serious in seniors, but older adults may show less common reflux symptoms, such as coughing or wheezing, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Fortunately, your digestive tract doesn’t have to become a victim of age. Like the rest of your body, it can often be protected with a healthy lifestyle. If you want to keep your digestive tract in good shape and keep uncomfortable symptoms at bay then regular Shilajit usage just might do the trick…or at least play an important role in regulating it.

4. Keep your skin and hair vital and strong

If life is about change, skin is proof. How your skin ages depend on such factors as your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and personal habits. Your skin changes with age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Your veins and bones can be seen more easily. Scratches, cuts, or bumps can take longer to heal. Years of sun tanning or being out in the sunlight for a long time may lead to wrinkles, dryness, and age spots. Since Shilajit has many useful properties, its use in cosmetics is well justified. It is part of the creams, masks, and compositions for massage. Using it in the correct way it can help you achieve younger-looking skin, fewer wrinkles, and uneven skin tone while helping regulate hormone level and deal with stress, resulting in much better-looking and healthier skin.

5. Boost your cognitive functions

As we get older, our cognitive functions seem to change. The basic cognitive functions most affected by age are attention and memory. … Deficits at these early processing stages could affect cognitive functions later in the processing stream. Higher-level cognitive functions such as language processing and decision-making may also be affected by age. Age-related changes in cognitive function vary considerably across individuals and across cognitive domains, with some cognitive functions appearing more susceptible than others to the effects of aging. Our golden years can indeed be golden if we maintain physical activity, the health of our heart and coronary systems, the flexibility of our joints, and a positive outlook on life. And just like muscles, mental and cognitive functions need training and upkeep. Studying is good exercise for the brain, but it requires effort and endurance, with concentration and memory often starting to worsen in our golden years.  Shilajit supports and helps with mental and cognitive functions. Preserve the clarity, sharpness, and focus of your thoughts throughout your life. Shilajit can do much for seniors, so don’t be afraid to give it a try.

 We hope you learned something again and if you know a senior that improved their life with Shilajit, we would be more than happy to share their story! Also, if you feel like we left something out, leave us a comment and we’ll happily include it in the blog. Until next time, stay safe and healthy.
