As an Ayurvedic practitioner I am very well versed on the benefits of shilalit and have been using it from various brands for almost 8 years. I recently read some articles that shilajit may contain high amounts of heavy metals depending on the deposit source and brand.
Although I have been seeing nothing but its benefits, it’s the long-term ramifications that made me concerned. A colleague of mine suggested I try AEON which she said was a shilajit alternative that is sourced in Canada. She has been using it for 3 months now and has nothing but good things to say about it, so I thought i would give it a shot.
AEON is definitely easier to take and tastes substantially better than shilajit. The benefits on my mood and energy were just as pronounced (maybe even better?). For now I have replaced my shilajit intake with AEON and so far i am happy with the results.
