    I would like to know the amount per serving of some of these minerals.
    Is there a nutritional content label or information on a page here that I am not finding?

      Hi, the amount per serving varies since Shilajit is a natural supplement and its composition varies from region to region. In terms of ratio: we can say that our Shilajit conrains upto 67% fulvic acid per serving. Calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, phosphorus etc are the other trace minerals that constitute the rest of Shilajit. However, it is for sure that our Shilajit does not contain heavy metals.
