Oriveda's focus is on selling well-researched medicinal mushroom extracts of superior quality.

As a business we are focused on providing our customers with the best possible products, value-for-money and service. We are serving customers in over 85 countries.

Our business is based on common sense and pragmatism. We feel that every claim of quality should be backed up with hard facts.

All our products are tested by independent objective laboratories, not just for safety but in particular for active ingredients. You don't have to take our word for it when we claim premium quality - you can verify it. We share our test reports with our customers.

• Therapeutically speaking, ORIVeDA extracts are the most powerful extracts available worldwide, with guaranteed levels of the most important bioactive components and the highest bioavailability possible. And this is not just a marketing statement.

Our authorized supplement facts labels and Google make it easy to compare our products with others. As said, our Certificates of Analysis from independent third party laboratories are available on request.

• Since we started as a business we have always emphasized the use of extracts, being the only reliable way to accomplish therapeutic effects.

Already in 2012 we started specifying beta-glucans (the main active ingredient of most medicinal mushrooms) on our supplement fact labels. This was a time when 95 % of mushroom supplements had zero specifications (not being extracted) and the rest mentioned 'polysaccharides' at best, a broad term covering a lot of non-bioactive compounds, in the core unsuitable as a quality marker. Currently beta-glucans are widely accepted as a quality marker, using an AOAC-validated test method.

• We are the first ones specifiying cordycepin as a quality marker for Cordyceps and the first and only ones to specify the NGF-promoting compounds for which Lion's Mane is known - the terpenes. In short, we have set and pointed out quality standards since we started. This approach makes it easy for consumers to choose the right stuff and they're less likely to be deceived by marketing tricks. Make sure to check our FAQ for additional details.

• The value-for-money you get with our products is excellent. Not only are our prices often lower than others, but the level of bioavailable active ingredients in our extracts is also much higher, in some instances over three times higher than the best of the rest. So, instead of spending $ 90 on “product X” you only have to spend $ 30 on our product for the same therapeutic potential.
And on top of that, as said before, we guarantee the bioavailability of the bioactives; your body can absorb and digest them 100%, so the therapeutic potential is maximal. And all these claims can be verified - objective third party test results are available on demand.

• In SE-Asia medicinal mushrooms have been used for many centuries. These countries therefore contain probably the best-informed and most critical consumers. We are proud to be able to claim that we are currently the only Western company selling mushroom extracts on a large scale to this region.
• A lot of the research on which our products' reputation is built is available and can be downloaded for free from the resources-section of our site.

• We ship to almost all countries in the world, except warzones.With only a few exceptions, shipping is free for website orders, worldwide. We usually ship orders the next day.

• We offer maximum personal service: we are online 7 days a week and your questions will be answered in great detail. Those questions are important: they help us develop new ideas and products. Keep them coming!

• Our newsletter (2 - 3 times p/year) is offering more than just updates and marketing. We often include complete monographs related to our product-line and include discounts for subscribers. Register today!

Why ORIVeDA 's Shilajit - Mumijo ?

ORIVeDA guarantees both the authenticity and quality - our product was validated using acknowledged objective tests.

Shilajit (or 'Mumijo' as it's called in Russia) is an extremely rare natural substance, only found in some mountain ranges like the Himalaya and the Altai mountains.

Because of its rarity and its hyped reputation as a panacea (it is also one of the last remaining 'rasayana's' in Ayurveda) a lot of people see good business opportunities. This has lead to a enormous stream of bad, unreliable and even dangerous products.

This website has an overview of 30 Shilajit products (all of them resins) and also supplies background, price and an objective quality report of all products. Oriveda Shilajit is also included.

What is particularly striking is that apart from ORIVeDA nobody is using the authorised AOAC lab standard to test for the main active ingredients in Shilajit: the fulvic- and humic-acid fractions. Click to see our test report. And an authenticity test - it exists, but only 2 vendors actually use it - and this includes us.

The only reasons not to test we can come up with are that the outcome is disappointing and/or ignorance of the vendor.

more details...

The number of bad or even dangerous products is high. Like, mixes of burnt sugar with propolis, Ozokerite, herbal shilajit (!?), you name it...

Let's face it, a natural substance, more rare than gold or diamonds, that takes several decades to form a layer one millimeter thick can never be available in the quantities that are currently offered online, and definitely not for low prices.

'Guaranteed levels of fulvic acid !' some sellers claim; but they don't have reliable test reports backing up their claims. Natural Shilajit - Mumijo contains at least 7 % of ashless fulvic / humic acids according to Russian research; 7% is the minimum (Russian Federal Standard). Anything below that threshold is not allowed to be sold as Shilajit - Mumijo.

ORIVeDA Shilajit contains ± 29 % fulvic acid and ± 9 % humic acids, depending on the moisture level percentages can be significantly higher. Tested in compliance with the official AOAC standards.

Processing Shilajit - Mumijo (e.g. when turning it into tablets, powder, tinctures) involves heat and adding stabilizers, additives etc, and usually involves the use of metal equipment, which means the natural composition of Mumijo • Shilajit (and the resulting synergy) is affected. Many of the amino acids will be destroyed (because of heat) and several other components will oxidize and change properties (by getting in touch with metal).

After being authenticitated ORIVeDA Shilajit - Mumijo is cleaned/purified using a tried and tested -patented- Russian method based on low temperature and centrifugal processing. This is followed by air-drying to ensure a moisture level ≤ 7 %.

This is very important, because contaminated or high-moisture products easily develop mould and uncontrolled oxidation and fermentation might occur. The resulting raw material is then checked for heavy metals and other contamination (yeast, mold, e-coli, salmonella, mites) that is not allowed in food or dietary supplements. After that a sanitary certificate is issued.

You don't have to take our word for these claims. We can show you documentation - third party Certificates of Analysis. We strongly recommend to ask for this documentation in case of niche products such as Shilajit and medicinal mushroom supplements. Also have a look at our FAQ.

Basic background of Shilajit - Mumijo

It can be used both internally e.g. after dissolving it in pure, non-chlorinated water (despite the traditional ayurvedic recommendations - never use milk ! Milk neutralizes the polyphenols / anti-oxidant potential !) and externally (dissolving it in body lotion or creme is seen often in Russia).
Below is a brief list of its properties*. For a very extensive background and history click here (external website - opens in new window ).


Take notice: this list should not be interpreted as a list of medical claims !

Shilajit is a complex combination of several dozens of macro- and micro elements, minerals, amino acids, vitamins, plant sterols, fulvic acid and humic acid.
