Urbol’s owner and editor in chief Nick Eberle has published a new editorial on the rising number of cases of counterfeit Shilajit Resin and the dangerous side effects associated with such products.
Charlottesville, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2015 -- Shilajit Resin is one of the cornerstones of ayuvedic medicine, and contains more than eighty five different minerals as well as triterpenes, humic acid and fulvic acid, making it a super-compound for improving health and vitality, clinically supported by animal studies. Sadly, this valuable compound is subject to an increasing number of forgeries and counterfeits created by simply adding fulvic acid to dirt – the sale of which is causing many people to experience unexpected and detrimental side effects. Urbol is an online resource center for those interested in ayuvedic herbs, and their editor has taken to the site to warn of these counterfeits.
The new editorial, written by Editor Nick Eberle, identifies that many counterfeit products are finding their way onto the market throughout the world from India and Pakistan, being exported to undercut the price of authentic resins produced and found elsewhere. The side effects are also described to help people quickly identify if they are consuming a counterfeit product.
The article includes descriptions of the formation of artificial powders and resins, deconstructs the claims most commonly used by counterfeiters toward greater convenience or increased potency, and analyses the effect this is having on the ayuvedic herb industry.
A spokesperson for Urbol explained, "While counterfeit products are still a minority of the products out there, that minority is being marketed at the budget conscious, who are often the most vulnerable to scams. The counterfeits cannot be told apart from the genuine article by anyone but the most experienced users and licensed laboratories, that is why it is of paramount importance that individuals buy their products from authenticated, recommended providers. This is one of many articles on the site all designed to help people make the right purchasing decisions and keep updated on the latest progress and innovation in herbal medicine."
