About the book
SHILAJIT DIVYARASAYAN is the sequel to Shilajit in Perspective (Narosa, 2006).
Continued investigation of shilajit has now resulted in the discovery of three types of potent bioactive micro-constituents of shilajit. These are fullerene, fullerene-dibenso-?-pyrone (DBP) adducts and mineralo (Fe; Cu, Zn) – fullerene-DBP (3-OH and 3, 8-OH2) – adducts.
These discoveries point to a unique interlink of the terrestrial and celestial bodies by shilajit. Hence the name Shilajit Divyarasayan. Divya connotes celestial and rasayan connotes chemistry.
Over a dozen asteroid and meteorite samples have been analysed. Involving chemical and analytical techniques, namely, HPTLC, HPLC, IR, 1H- and 13C-NMR, MS, TEM, SEM and syntheses were adopted and the results thereof are applied to validate the maharas (Supervitalizer) character of shilajit.
Also, several simple techniques have been developed to accomplish similar objectives. This approach would act as a bridge between the ancient (Ayurveda) and the modern (Occidental) - Science.
This book would provide unique benefit of users and researchers of shilajit.
