No, this is also not because I have baby fever! But there are many people in my life right now who have just given birth or who are preparing to give birth, so I’m simply trying to be as helpful as possible when it comes to preparation.

If you’re unfamiliar with Shilajit, now might be the best time to get to know this super food that has been around for centuries.
Shilajit is a sticky and black tar-like substance that is often found in high mountain ranges like the Himalayas. It’s the byproduct of a century-long process of decomposition of plants and minerals. Before, Shilajit was traditionally sourced in India and Tibet but now it can be found in several other countries.
Shilajit has also been at the core of Ayurvedic medicine, which is an ancient Indian medical system that relies on a natural approach to physical and mental health. If used correctly, incorporating Shilajit in your diet can bring you a lot of health benefits!
Life can feel pretty bleak when the days start getting shorter, the nights start getting longer, and it feels as though it’s cold all the time. But maybe the winter blues don’t have to be as regular as the seasons!
