What is deer velvet?t

Male deer grow antlers every year. These antlers are made of cartilage that contains nutrient-rich blood. They are covered with soft velvety fur from which the name is derived. This process of annual regeneration is unique to deer.

Numerous health benefits of velvet antler have been reported through history by traditional healers and contemporary medical practitioners, including immune support, enhanced athletic and sexual performance, joint support, and circulatory function.

Why is the velvet removed?

What is not widely known is that in the wild, the male deer sheds antler each year, and in this respect the harvesting of velvet antler is merely the modification of a natural event. Indeed, for deer farmed in New Zealand, it is recommended that velvet is removed each year, in order to prevent stags using them as weapons and damaging themselves and other deer, as is common in the wild.

Does removing the velvet hurt the deer?

Absolutely not! The removal of the velvet is a very humane process. In New Zealand, velvet can only be removed by eterinarians or specifically trained and certified farmers, under the strict control of the New Zealand Government�s Animal Welfare Advisory Committee and mandated by New Zealand law. Mountain Red maintains the highest standards of animal welfare, and uses only velvet harvested humanely.

To date, the research results are showing that this ancient remedy may be one of nature�s safest multipurpose sources of energy.

Scientific studies with deer velvet have so far concentrated on testing for growth, endurance and stamina, immunology, and joint mobility.

Extensive research in Russia, China, Korea and New Zealand has shown that deer velvet contains a rich source of essential minerals, vitamins, major amino acids and other nutrients.

There has been recent interest in this ancient remedy since the results of a unique scientific testing programme carried out in New Zealand by AgResearch. The results of these tests are capturing the attention of scientists� worldwide and exciting clinical researchers with the potential applications for deer velvet in today’s mainstream healthcare. Clinical trials at New Zealand’s Otago University indicate a link between the velvet extract and improved strength and endurance. Scientists at Otago University Human Performance Center compared the development of muscle strength and endurance in male athletes taking a velvet supplement and others taking a placebo. Writing in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism (vol 13, issue 3), they conclude that the group taking the powdered form of New Zealand deer velvet showed greater improvements in isokinetic strength and muscular endurance as a result of training than the control group. The ground-up velvet was also thought to help in the recovery of muscle tissue damage.Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare practitioner
