    Who knows of a good мумие (shalajit)?

    I am interested in trying it; not pills or capsules, but the raw resin. I understand there are a lot of fakes out there, so would appreciate any info about where to get the good stuff.

    The natural sources are in mountains 2000+ meters high (Altay, Pamir), seek there.

    That's okay. Got a recommendation from a Canadian (who got some from Russia), and I ordered some from Wildberries.

    Don't take much at first, start from micro dozing - because of possible allergic reactions. The substance is quite multi-component, so be careful, let your wife supervise you.

    Thanks Andy, I've done my homework, and think now I know more than her. I'll be careful, start with matchhead portion (about 250mg); of course she'll supervise.

    I was talking about any unusual (for one's organizzzm) substance - especially complex one.
    There is one non-pleasant thing in the world - anaphylactic shock, and I don't wish it even to American spies

    Given that it causes one to doze off, albeit in tiny amounts, to summit up, I’d guess that it lets you ever rest. With a Sherpa guide, and the right climb it, you could take a peak.

    From the Russian version of Wikipedia:

    Mumiyo is lithified bat guano or bird poop, collected from caves in the Altai mountains. Mumiyo is an organo-mineral product of predominantly natural biological origin.

    It is assumed that mumiyo is a waste product of bats and rodents. Mountain caves provide refuge for colonies of insect-eating bats in mountainous regions, which in turn feed on mountain grasses and/or the nectar of their flowers. There is a theory that essential oils and other medicinally significant compounds contained in mountain herbs are partially concentrated and fermented in the digestive tracts of bats. Subsequently, excrement accumulates in the places where bats spend the night and undergo further fermentation and concentration in the unique microclimatic conditions of mountain caves.
    In modern Russian state medical institutions, mumiyo is not used, since there are no data from clinical and experimental studies that unequivocally prove any benefits from its use.

    Mumiyo is used as a medicine only in folk and alternative medicine, where it is believed that mumiyo has a tonic and anti-inflammatory effect, enhances the protective, regenerative and reparative processes in the body, helps in the treatment of bronchial asthma, chronic diseases of the respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract, skin and kidney stones, to accelerate the recovery of bone fractures. Mumiyo can be taken both internally, being previously dissolved in water, milk, juice or tea, and externally, through drops, creams, ointments and masks.

    The most common counterfeit mumiyos are mixtures of sea buckthorn oil, canned meat, blood serum, propolis, burnt sugar, the humus soil layer of the Non-Black Earth Region, clay, sand or droppings of small rodents.

    This is what I found on Wikipedia, copy and paste with link:

    Shilajit (Sanskrit: शिलाजीत) or Mumijo is a blackish-brown powder or an exudate from high mountain rocks, often found in the Himalayas, Karakoram, Nepal, Bhutan, Girda (Buldhana, MH, India), Russia, Iran, Mongolia and in the south of Peru, where it is called Andean Shilajit.[1]

    Although shilajit is sometimes referred to as a mineral tar or resin, it is not actually either of those. It is a highly viscous substance like a tar or resin that is very dark brown or black in color, but unlike these is readily soluble in water but insoluble in ethanol. Shilajit is composed of 60% to 80% humic substances such as humic and fulvic acids, along with trace oligoelements including selenium.[2]

    Some researchers hypothesize that shilajit is produced by the decomposition or humification of latex and resin-bearing plant material from species such as Euphorbia royleana and Trifolium repens over a period of centuries.[3][4]

    Shilajit is of two types: gomutra shilajit and karpura shilajit.[clarification needed]

    Shilajit can also be classified into four major categories according to substances present in it: Suvarna Shilajit, Rajat Shilajit, Tamr Shilajit and Loh Shilajit. Among them, Loh Shilajit is very popular. Formulations like Dabur Shilajit Gold contain multiple contents along with other herbs like ashwagandha and safed museli.[5]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shilajit

    Here is another link for info. https://shilajit-mumio.com/ They say they are objective, I know better and am skeptical, try and have no expectations.

    I received some yesterday and tried it, taking my second dose this morning. Bat poop it is not.
