Yes using shilajit is good for health.To find your optimal dosage, begin by taking a piece about the size of a grain of rice (~100 mg) once per day. In a few days, take the same amount 2-3 times per day. Then gradually increase the amount of shilajit taken with each dose up to a large pea size (~300 mg) until you achieve the desired benefits. Do not be greatly concerned with getting the portions exactly right or exactly the same each time you take it. Use the same shape (elliptical like rice or round like a pea) each time to ensure that you have relative consistent amounts. By following these recommendations, you will find how much shilajit you should take.
Factors that will affect the amount of shilajit required for you include:
• Body size
• Body mass index (BMI)
• General health
• Food and other lifestyle choices
• Benefits sought
