Third party lab testing for our current batch of Gold Standard Shilajit Paste


Natural variations in composition and its relative rarity have given rise to adulterated and counterfeit shilajit products[68], and testing methods used to determine humic acid and fulvic acid levels in shilajit have proven unreliable[69].
Due to these issues the Association of Official Analytical Chemists, AOAC International, developed a consensus-driven testing standard for verifying and establishing the contents of humic ores such as shilajit[69].

Above is the third party laboratory AOAC test report for our current batch of PlantPills Gold Standard Shilajit Paste, batch number SI-AK-01.

This is dated as 18th November 2019, and in addition to validating authenticity, shows Fulvic Acid as 9.9%, Humic Acid as 4.25%, Sulfur as 0.884%, organic matter as 40.1% and Moisture as 23.2%.

This batch has a use-by date of November 2023.


Above is the third party laboratory test report for Minerals and Aluminium for our current batch of PlantPills Gold Standard Shilajit Paste, batch number SI-AK-01.

This is dated as 20th November 2019, is tested by ICP, and shows Calcium content as 23100 ppm, Copper as 8.32 ppm, Iron as 788 ppm, Magnesium as 12100 ppm, Manganese as 80.3 ppm, Phosphorus as 1620 ppm, Potassium as 93700 ppm, Sodium as 732 ppm, Zinc as 27.3 ppm and Aluminium as 761 ppm.

Aluminium content of some shilajit has been a contentious issue, and its important that it is tested for in each batch.
One serving (0.25g) of PlantPills Shilajit contains the same amount of aluminium as two slices of bread, or two chicken breasts, or 50 grams of pasta, or 5 grams of chocolate[70,71,72].

This batch has a use-by date of November 2023.


Above is the third party laboratory test report for heavy metals for our current batch of PlantPills Gold Standard Shilajit Paste, batch number SI-AK-01.

This is dated as 18th November 2019, with the heavy metals tested by ICP, and shows Lead (Pb) as 1.28 ppm, Arsenic (As) as 0.61 ppm, Cadmium (Cd) as 0.114 ppm, and Mercury (Hg) as 0.002 ppm.

This batch has a use-by date of November 2023.


Above is the Microbial Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for our current batch of PlantPills Gold Standard Shilajit Paste, batch number SI-AK-01, as tested by the third party laboratory.

This is dated as 21st November 2019, and shows the total plate count (TPC - intended to indicate the level of microorganism in a product) as 30 cfu/gm (colony forming units per gram). Yeast, Mold and Coliforms are not detected, and E. coli, pseudomonas, Staphylococcus aureus, salmonella and shigella are all confirmed as absent.

This batch has a use-by date of November 2023.
