Mineral pitch resin must be purified for human consumption. It cannot be taken “raw” because in nature it is always mixed with substances, which cannot be ingested. Pebble, sand, the natural fiber must be “washed out” to produce the resin.
Both Shilajit and Mumie and any genuine Mineral Pitch are made from the same raw material. Sometimes companies propone a myth, that both substances are different, which is not true. Clinically and chemically they are practically identical and almost an equal amount of studies was done on both Mumie and Shilajit.
Traditionally there are two main methods to purify native Shilajit. In the first, the simple water extraction process is used repeatedly on the pitch-bearing rock. The resulting solution is filtered to remove water-insoluble impurities. The filtered extract is then concentrated, either by direct heating or exposure to sunlight. During the heating process, a layer of pure resin forms in the filtrate. This layer is skimmed off, and the heating is continued until another layer forms, which is skimmed off in its turn. These heating and skimming steps are repeated three or four times.
All resin manufacturers use the heat process in one or the other way. Direct heating by sunlight is usually not used because it is virtually unsustainable for larger manufacturing quantities, where consistent quality and processing time are essential. Regardless, of which method is used genuine mineral pitch if prepared properly always shows outstanding efficacy.
The drawback of traditional manufacturing methods is that it is almost impossible to consistently manufacture high-quality Shilajit-Mumie and guarantee the highest level of safety thereof. It has to do with the facts, that the substance if abnormally overheated will lose a substantial part of its native potency and the use of questionable water sources and manufacturing utensils can diminish the quality of the resin.
On the safety side, traditional shilajit manufacturers never bothered with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and never developed manufacturing methods, which would consistently result in a production of the high potency and premium quality resin suited for human consumption. Nevertheless, we have to stress that there are about three companies in the world who use traditional manufacturing and create the mineral pitch of excellent quality. To such traditional manufacturers making high-quality resin is more art than science.
Pürblack shilajit is different because it creates Live Resin, which is a result of both art and science combination. The company uses unique manufacturing protocols based on the patent application filed with USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) in 2012.
Let’s look into what Pürblack shilajit is and how it’s made.
Pürblack resin is made from the same raw material all high-end mineral pitch resins are made of. It is the resin bearing “rock” and not the “sedimentary rock formations”. The difference between the two is that the “sedimentary rock formations” are usually leftovers of the resin bearing rock. The high-end resin manufacturer will always use the “rock” because it is almost impossible to get sufficient amounts of high-quality resin from the “sedimentary rock formations” usually one can only manufacture powders or “imitation Shilajit” from the sedimentary rock formations. In simple English, this means that an initially high-quality raw material has to be used to manufacture high-quality resin.
Pürblack shilajit is considered to be the third generation of mineral pitch. Traditionally manufactured resins are considered to be the first generation, commercially mass-manufactured resins are considered to be the second. The difference between the third-generation mineral pitch is that it is the closest to the “natural” state of the resin in nature. The third-generation Resin is made with a low-temperature, high purity refining process, which permits to retain the broad range of naturally occurring constituents, which are often lost or destroyed with first and second generations.
