By now you have probably heard all the rage in sports about deer antler velvet and the fact that the nfl banned its use. So what is this stuff and why are people using it?
Velvet Antler Extract has uses ranging from safe anti-aging solutions to enhancing the performance of the most elite athletes. Thousands of papers have been published on the manufacture, composition and biochemical effects of Velvet Antler Extract and its constituents. This research has consistently revealed a host of health benefits to enhance immune and neurological health as well as metabolic efficiency.
Antlers are the only mammalian appendages capable of continuous regeneration. Antlers grow at a rate of one inch or more per day, representing the fastest rate of organ growth
in the animal kingdom. Antlers can reach over six feet in diameter and weigh several hundred pounds. Antlers transform each year from cartilage to a state of calcification
before naturally falling off and regenerating. During the cartilaginous state these antler are harvested procured in to our proprietary raw material. The organs or antler in this state
are nutrient rich in IGF-1, growth factors and other protein based structures
The active ingredients found in Velvet Antler Extract include growth hormones and growth factors, minerals and trace mineral elements, protein, collagen and lipids, and glycosaminoglycans.

Performance Enhancing Effects
Explosiveness, muscle recovery time, endurance capacity, strength and body composition
can all be improved with the use of Velvet Antler Extract. Velvet Antler Extract
supplementation has been shown to reduce body fat and resting creatine kinase levels and
increase strength, time to exhaustion, anaerobic performance, and VO¬2 max.
Velvet Antler Extract provides a natural source of bio-available IGF-1. The IGF-1 delivered in
BioProtein Technology’s products is provided as it naturally occurs with all of the bio-active
constituents balanced by nature to the levels of IGF-1 and the many other supporting
Research on IGF-1
Research has shown a multitude of benefits natural IGF-1 can have on the body. From
building muscle mass, improving metabolism, nerve regeneration, immune responses,
blood sugar utilization, to slowing the aging process and expanding longevity. Studies have
consistently concluded the remarkable effects of natural IGF-1 for chronic conditions such as
heart disease, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and obesity.
Shake well before each use. As a dietary supplement hold 30 drops in mouth for 90 seconds per dose.
