Shilajit

Considered to be a mineral because it seeps out of rocks.

1. Wickipedia "Shilajit, also known as silajit, mumijo, and momia[1] is a thick, sticky tar-like substance with a colour ranging from white to dark brown (the latter is more common), sometimes found in Caucasus mountains, Altai mountains, and Tibet mountains.[2] It is used in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine. The composition of shilajit has been investigated numerous times in both India and the former USSR, and depends on the location where it is found. It has been reported to contain at least 85 minerals in ionic form, as well as triterpenes, humic acid and fulvic acid.[3][4][5] A similar substance from the Caucasus Mountains, and the Altai mountains is called mumijo (Russian).[6]" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shilajit

2. Pub Med Study to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) "Shilajit has been used as a rejuvenator for ages in Indian ancient traditional medicine and has been validated for a number of pharmacological activities...CONCLUSION:The results indicate that shilajit mitigates the effects of CFS in this model possibly through the modulation of HPA axis and preservation of mitochondrial function and integrity. The reversal of CFS-induced behavioral symptoms and mitochondrial bioenergetics by shilajit indicates mitochondria as a potential target for treatment of CFS." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22771318
