Cancer Treatment& Shilajit

Cancer Treatment & Shilajit

We have covered a lot of medicinal properties and health benefits of shilajit in our previous blogs. But our latest blog surpasses all the previous discoveries and can be a beacon of hope for many around the world.

Wonders of wonders, shilajit has been found to be toxic to various types of cancers, including lung, breast, colon, bladder, ovarian, and liver cancer. Some researchers attribute the toxicity of these cancers to the presence and combination of heavy metals in the substance, making it a potential natural cancer treatment. Let us explore what this discovery entails.

What is shilajit?

When you consider a new supplement, the first thing that comes to mind is probably not a jar of black, tar-like goo. But maybe it should be, because shilajit is an excellent ancient herb (or herb-mineral, to be precise) with a host of health benefits.It’s a common substance used in the ancient practice of Ayurvedic medicine, a 5,000-year-old method of disease prevention and treatment originating in India and still practiced in many Asian countries.

Known for thousands of years as a rejuvenator of the whole body, shilajit has garnered a fairly significant body of research for its impact on various body systems.Recognized by many names, shilajit is also called mineral pitch, mineral wax, black asphaltum, shargai, dorobi, barahshin, baragshun, mumlai, brag zhun, chao-tong, wu ling zhi, baad-a-ghee, and arkhar-tash and mumiyo (variably transliterated as mumijo, mumio, momia, and moomiyo).

It’s a tar-like substance (known as biomass) found in the Himalayan and Tibet Mountains. As lush forests were compacted as mountains arose, shilajit was formed. When the temperatures rise around these Indian mountains, this tar-like medical miracle substance oozes from crevices within the mountains. Ranging from yellowish-brown to pure black, the black variety is considered the most nutritional.

Over 3,000 years ago, shilajit was mentioned in ancient Sanskrit texts. Known as the “conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness,” it has been one of the staples of traditional medicine (and an aphrodisiac) in a variety of Asian countries for thousands of years.

More recently, due to its impressive effect on diabetes, shilajit was included in an herbal supplement known as Diabecon. Another fascinating feature of shilajit is its ability to help reduce the side effects of high-altitude travel. People going from low to high altitude may find it works as a natural way of avoiding “altitude stress.”

Shilajit for cancer treatment

Cancer is one of the most common diseases in this day and age. Despite the development of new and improved treatment and diagnosis methods, it is still the second most common cause of deaths. Studies found that the main components of Shilajit are humus (60–80%), benzoic acid, fatty acids, ichthyol, ellagic acid, resin, triterpenes, sterol, aromatic carboxylic acids, bioactive 3,4-benzokoumarins, amino acids, phenolic lipids and microelements. The most important role among these have the following bioactive molecules: dibenzo-alpha-pyrones, humic acid, and fulvic acid. These components mediate Mumio’s strong antioxidant activity and are carriers for active ingredients. Shilajit is also a rich source of amino acids, especially exogenous, such as methionine, leucine, and threonine, and also endogenous such as histidine, proline, glycine, tyrosine, arginine, and aspartic acid.

Also related to cancer is the ability shilajit has to protect certain body systems from dangerous radiation damage. A June 2016 study published in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics found that it greatly protected ovaries from radiation-related damage in an animal study.

Another research analyzed shilajit's effects on urinary bladder cancer. The results showed that Mumio was significantly more cytotoxic to urinary bladder cancer cells than to normal cells. These results are promising and indicate Mumiois a great candidate for urinary bladder cancer treatment and further investigations should be performed.Mumio has antimicrobial activity against various strains of pyogenic microorganisms, which is associated with the presence of benzoic and fulvic acid. These antibacterial properties of Mumio can be supportive for bladder cancer treatment and prevention according to the two-hit hypothesis as it not only impairs cancer cell growth but also prevents chronic inflammation, which are considered to be important factors in the initiation and progression of bladder cancer.

To date, only a few studies evaluatedthe effect and the mechanisms of action of Shilajit on cancer cells. So far research results indicate that more interest should be given to the evaluation of Shilajit/Mumio’s potential use for cancer treatment. It can be potentially difficult to analyze the distribution of Shilajit to various tissues because of its complex composition. Due to these considerations, we suggest further investigating intravesical application together with long-term oral administration of Shilajit for bladder cancer treatment. Moreover, long-term administration of Shilajit was found to be safe in an animal model and clinical studies did not show significant adverse events after Shilajit administration.
