Velvet deer antler has become an elite medicinal food in Asia, New Zealand, and Korea - the world's largest consumer of the product. Each spring deer antler cycle begins anew and the skin around the pedicle expands and grows, initiating new antler growth. Typically derived from early-stage deer antlers, velvet antlers are so named because of the soft texture of the horn before it calcifies and becomes hard. Tests show that velvet deer antler is composed of 50% protein, with up to 16 essential and nonessential amino acids and besides that it includes: glucosamine, chondroitin, and anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. And you know what else….Sex hormones, including testosterone, may be present in high levels in velvet antler, they don’t call em stags for nothing. It is my understanding that Deer Antler has also has been known to support bladder, cartilage and connective tissue, it’s a natural source of stem cells for regenerative effect and increase recovery time, energy, and overall health & well-being.

I’ve gotten great feed-back from consumers especially for energy about NZ Red Velvet Deer Antler by Premier Labs. It is humanely harvested from New Zealand deer on a private ranch, without harm to the deer and without the use of questionable anesthetics that can taint the product.
