Anemia is a very common health problem among people across the globe. So many patients can be seen with low hb in general practice. Busy and hectic schedules have made life so hectic that people are not aware of conditions their body may face in future.
Anemia is a condition in which there isn’t enough blood cells to carry proper oxygen to the body cells.
Loss of blood is the main cause of anemia. It can be for a short time or can vary mild to severe.
Worldwide anemia affects countless people irrespective of their gender and age. It is a condition wherein the oxygen-carrying capacity of the red blood cells is reduced drastically. Because of this, one might experience symptoms such as loss of appetite, pale skin, weakness, drowsiness, difficulty in concentration and even headaches. The deficiency of iron in our body is considered to be the primary cause of anemia. However, the condition can also occur if one has deficiencies of vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin A. Additionally, chronic inflammation and parasitic infections may also cause anemia. So, how can you tackle this condition? Shilajit is the answer. Let’s see how this herbal medicine helps fight anemia.
Shilajit, which means ‘conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness’ in Sanskrit, is extracted out of the cracks in rocks usually found in the mountainous regions of India, China, Afghanistan, Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. It is a natural element that consists of more than eighty five minerals which are present in ionic composition. It is one of the oldest compounds used as a health regenerator.
Shilajit is a tar-like substance that contains vitamins, fulvic acid, phytonutrients too and iron. Because of the fulvic acids and trace minerals, Shilajit improves the oxygen-carrying capability of red blood cells, thereby increasing the iron levels. Lack of such minerals in body can lead to chronic and serious health conditions.
The red blood cells in our body rely on a protein called haemoglobin to pass oxygen to different parts. A decrease in the level of haemoglobin or RBCs often results in less-oxygen being supplied to hearts and lungs. This condition left untreated can be fatal. However, Shilajit can easily combat anemia and provide a host of other benefits. This natural medicine extracted from the Himalayas also purifies the blood and detoxifies the body.
