  • Can I combine microdosing with PureKakaw cocoa?
    Yes, you can. It can be a nice powerful combination where the truffle microdose opens the mind and the cocoa opens the heart. Cocoa in itself is not a psychedelic, but it does have a psychoactive effect on our mood. Please note that cocoa can enhance the effect of a microdose, so your sweet spot may be a bit lower. Cocoa contains MAO inhibitors that inhibit the breakdown of neurotransmitters and therefore increase their availability in the central nervous system.
  • What is Shilajit?
    Shilajit is a natural substance mainly found in the Himalayan mountains. It is formed by certain plants and organic matter, which millions of years ago were trapped between the layers of rocks in mountainous regions. Due to the shifting of tectonic plates and extreme temperature differences, this material has compressed and started to decompose, creating a rich organic mass that flows from the rocks. This is Shilajit. Known in Ayurveda as the "destroyer of weakness", Shilajit has been used as a dietary supplement for thousands of years due to the many health benefits it provides.
  • Where does your Shilajit come from?
    Our Shilajit is harvested directly from the world's highest mountains (16000ft) in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. Above these altitudes, the environment is pristine and free of pollutants and chemicals, so it is ideal for finding the highest quality pure Shilajit.
  • How is Shilajit made & purified?
    Our Shilajit comes directly from the origin. The Shilajit is 100% pure, is not artificially processed and does not contain any filler. It is collected by hand and purified according to the strictest organic standards. The purification technique that is applied not only ensures that it filters out the impurities and other contaminants, but also that the essential substance remains intact. First, the raw Shilajit stones are dissolved in fresh Himalayan spring water to remove all sediment. The mixture is then steamed to disinfect the Shilajit from possible soil bacteria or spores and fresh Moringa seeds are used to purify the Shilatjit from possible heavy metals. In the next step, the Shilajit is thoroughly filtered several times. Once purified, the Shilajit is separated from the water and a solid/semi-liquid form remains. An important part is that this Shilajit is dried in the sun for 3-4 weeks - to preserve its fundamental nature.
  • How does Shilajit work in the body?
    This pure Shilajit resin contains a wide spectrum of natural minerals, vitamins, trace elements and humic and fuvic acid. There is nothing else in nature that is richer in all these nutrients. Our body needs all these substances to function optimally. Nowadays there are a lot of health complaints that are linked to vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies. Unfortunately, we cannot get all vital vitamins and minerals from our diet alone. In addition, we need the essential minerals that help our body to absorb these nutrients. Humic and fulvic acids have the unique ability to support our body in absorbing and transporting these minerals at the cellular level. The ionic form of minerals in Shilajit also contributes to this process.
  • How do I take Himalayan Purified Shilajit?
    Take an amount the size of a grain of rice - pea (100mg-500mg) 1 to 3 times a day. Dissolve this in a hot drink. This can be done in hot (filtered) water or hot (vegetable) milk. Start with an amount the size of a grain of rice (100mg) once a day and slowly build up the amount until you achieve the desired result. - use filtered water - for best absorption take Shilajit in the morning on an empty stomach - add a teaspoon of raw honey for the strong taste and for a better effect - add ghee, sesame oil or coconut oil according to Ayurveda
  • Is Shilajit Safe?
    Yes, our Shilajit does not contain heavy metals or any food contamination. It is naturally purified and then tested in a laboratory for purity and safety. Himalayan Purified Shilajit is 100% safe.
  • Is Shilatjit vegan?
    Yes, Shilajit is 100% vegan.

  • What is Chaga?
    Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) is a mushroom that grows on birch trees. These birch trees take 15-20 years to reach maturity. During this period, the Chaga mushroom absorbs many valuable enzymes, nutrients and healing substances. Chaga grows in different parts of the world, but the most potent variety can be found on the black birch trees from the pristine Taiga forests of Siberia. Bearmedicine's Chaga is from here. It is also known as the "King of all Herbs" due to its highest antioxidant levels in the entire mushroom kingdom. What also makes Chaga unique is the extremely high concentration of the enzyme SOD and the amino acid melanin.
  • Where is your Chaga harvested?
    The Chaga grows wild and is harvested by hand in the vast wild and untouched forests of the Siberian Taiga. This healing Chaga mushroom only grows in a few regions of Siberia. These huge landscapes are very sparsely populated and free from any pollution. Due to the extreme climate and very low winter temperatures - sometimes down to -50 degrees Celsius - the Chaga obtains much more biologically active substances than Chaga from other areas.
  • What is the 'freeze-dried' method?
    The Chaga extract is a multiple highly concentrated powder, which has to go through many steps and finally undergoes a complex freeze-drying process. This leaves an extracted potent powder, which is saturated with the highest amount of antioxidants available in Chaga. In the extraction process, the health-supporting compounds are activated and in this way it is maximally absorbable and digestible for our human body.
  • Is Chaga safe?
    Yes it is 100% safe. Before the raw Chaga go through the cleaning process, each fresh harvest is tested in the laboratory for radioactivity and black metals.
  • Is the Chaga mushroom hallucinogenic?
    The Chaga mushroom contains no hallucinogenic components and is not part of the psychoactive mushroom family.
  • Does Chaga contains caffeine?
    No.
  • Is your Chaga organic?
    No, not certified. However, no chemical pesticides are used and this product is 100% natural. The quality of Chaga is determined solely by the amount of chromogenic complex it contains. This so-called chromogenic complex is unique and can only be found in wild harvested Chaga mushrooms. Cultivated chaga with an organic label cannot contain this complex and has few benefits.
