More Than an Ancient Tradition
Since scientific research and clinical studies in New Zealand and overseas have supported the ancient claims about deer velvet, there has been a rising interest in deer antler cartilage as a dietary supplement to relieve a number of the ailments associated with aging.
As the fastest growing and only renewable form of cartilage in the world, deer velvet is a rich source of minerals, proteins, growth factors and nutrients essential for achieving and maintaining a high level of health. Research shows that some of the main benefits of velvet include support for joint mobility, together with general vitality and well being. Velvet is also shown to provide nutrient support for recovery from surgery, injury and stress. It assists in the healing of wounds, and offers support to the immune system. Furthermore, velvet has anti-ageing properties, supports red blood cell production and circulation, and supports healthy libido and fertility.
Second only to ginseng, deer antler velvet was prized in Traditional Oriental medicine and named the ‘Emperor’s Tonic’ for its powerful ability to restore the body to balance. According to Life Extension magazine, USA, ‘Deer velvet is poised to be one of the most versatile multipurpose natural remedies to arrive in the West’.
Modern Science Discovers What Ancient Medicine Knew For Thousands of Years
As the Western world becomes increasing aware of the benefits of natural therapies, traditional Asian remedies are becoming popular dietary supplements. In Asian cultures, velvet has been harvested from deer antler and used as a wellness tonic for over 2,000 years; producing notable restorative, strengthening and protective results to both body and mind.
Deer velvet has been dubbed an ‘Adaptogen’ because of its ability to stabilise the biological activity of the body and strengthen the immune system, thus enhancing its ability to adapt to stresses such as disease, aging and toxins.
What Makes Deer Velvet Unique?
The robust combination of active ingredients in deer velvet produces healing qualities not seen in any other individual product. Research has identified that deer velvet comprises a large variety of essential amino acids, which form peptides allowing proteins to be made. Amino acids make up 75% of the human body, which are essential to nearly every bodily function. Every chemical reaction that takes place in your body depends on amino acids and the proteins that they create.
To complement this, velvet is a good source of cartilage building components such as glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and anti-inflammatory prostaglandins making it beneficial in the reduction of swelling, rebuilding of damaged cartilage and enhancing joint mobility.
Deer velvet is also a rich source of collagen and growth factor hormones which promote anti-aging processes and improve bone density while producing healthy hair, nails and skin.
In New Zealand, most research relating to velvet antler composition and efficacy has been carried out by Velvet Antler Research New Zealand (VARNZ), a joint venture between the Game Industry Board and AgResearch Ltd.
