Over a decade ago we learned about the benefits of Deer Antler Velvet and knew we had to include it in our already popular HGH Homeopathic Hormone Supplement. Now our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 is our most popular product! Deer Antler Velvet can also be found in our ProBLEN DNA/RNA listed as Oleum Animale (oil base). So what exactly is Deer Antler Velvet?
Deer Antler Growth
Deer antlers grow at incredible speed and, after several weeks, as the antlers reach their final size, the cartilage within them gradually converts into bone. In the final process, the antler's blood supply and nerves are lost. When the antlers have fully hardened, the stags rub them against trees or rocks to remove the skin that remains. As a result of this rubbing, the deer develop sharp bony weapons for combat against threats to their harem of females during the autumn rut or mating season.
Deer Antler Velvet
Each Spring the antler cycle begins anew and the skin around the pedicle expands and grows, initiating new antler growth. The hard antler from the previous season is cast off and the growth of the new season's velvet crop begins. It is then that the velvet is harvested for its medicinal and performance qualities. If it is removed at the right time, while still in the cartilaginous state, almost all of the antler can be used for medicinal purposes.
Deer Antler Velvet has been shown to help heart function, weight loss, nerve damage, blood vessels, arthritis, diabetes, the immune system, the prostate, erectile dysfunction, lung function, cognitive ability, blood pressure and tissue repair in general, such as wound healing.
DEER ANTLERS ARE HUMANELY HARVESTED on farms in New Zealand with absolutely no harm to the deer. This is done under complete veterinary supervision, paying particularly close attention to the deer's best interest and keeping the animals healthy and vibrant. We use vitamins and special feeds in the raising of the stags. The herd is kept in a healthy, viable setting in which they thrive and roam freely. The New Zealand government code of velveting emphasizes on protecting the deer from harm or stress.
