Morning rituals around the world have traditionally called for the caffeinated boost of a cup of coffee, although that warm mug of java isn’t the only source of invigoration available. Enter – Shilajit! A resin-like, humic exudate found primarily within the high mountaintop regions of Nepal, Mongolia, and Peru. Shilajit has been enjoyed for generations due to its rejuvenating properties and health benefits.


Most people are familiar with the coffee “buzz” that so many have relied on to get through their mornings, the signature thrill is only temporary and can lead to jitters and even anxiety. People who have developed a tolerance to the caffeine in coffee require even more to rech their desired level of ‘alertness’ and can overindulge, leading to headaches and agitation, something that the American Psychological Association calls “coffee intoxication”.* Shilajit facilitates the body’s natural energy outputs, improving mitochondrial function to deliver a more consistent and healthy boost for your day(s )*. Meaning you get the energy boost without the physical and mental drains, we consider that a win!



Coffee stimulates the body by releasing adrenaline which constricts blood vessels and causes high blood pressure. However, while coffee does have antioxidant properties that help remove harmful substances in the blood, one too many cups of espresso will cause heart palpitations in people who are sensitive to caffeine. The fulvic acid that’s present in Shilajit does more for your blood by not only removing free radicals, but replenishing it with Iron. Shilajit improves your body’s natural processes by creating more efficiencies at the cellular level.


If you’re looking to get a long-term boost from coffee, studies have shown that both caffeinated and decaffeinated varieties helped lower the risks of cardiovascular diseases, neurological diseases, and even type 2 diabetes*. Although the amount of coffee you would need to drink to attain such benefits ranges anywhere from four to eight cups per day. But you won’t have to consume four pints of french press to reap similar benefits. Shilajit has been linked to antiaging within Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, as the humic substance is high in Selenium**, which can potentially reduce the risk of certain chronic conditions*. Shilajit is, however, known for not tasting as great as coffee. This is why we created Amptogen in pill form. Easy to swallow, and no bad taste.



Getting a good night’s sleep is an important part of maintaining a healthy body and mind — the significance of creating a consistent sleep schedule has gained traction throughout many fields of health. The caffeine present in coffee delays the activation of melatonin within the body, which not only keeps you awake, but pushes back your circadian rhythm entirely, causing you to wake up later and later than you might wish. Shilajit supports a natural energy boost that lasts throughout your day without interfering with your sleep cycle. So you might want to think twice about incorporating an iced latte in your afternoon or evening if you don’t want to wake up groggy the next day.

While coffee quenches the need for a prompt boost of energy, sustaining a healthy balance can prove difficult with the variety of adverse effects on your body. The intense “bounce” of caffeine leads to constant fluctuations and crashes that leave you craving the next jolt. Amptogen combines the potency of Shilajit with Reservatol, Niacinamide, and NMN to increase the efficiency of your natural systems, increasing your energy and cognition. Removing the coffee ‘quick fix’ from your diet may seem daunting at first, but the enduring effects of Shaljit provide an ample and beneficial supplement for your holistic health.
