Deer Antler Velvet
Boosting the Immune System
Deer Antler Velvet is a safe and natural treatment for boosting the immune system, known as immunopotentiation, by increasing the production of white blood cells (lymphocytes). Monocytes are representative of 3.7% of the body's white blood cells and are essential to the immune function of lymph, spleen, and bone marrow. The increase in numbers serve to intensify immune function. An analysis was performed on eight New Zealand red deer extracts and this showed that extracts prepared from freeze dried antlers, harvested at the proper time, had significant immune stimulant activity. In the laboratory, it was noteworthy to find immune enhancement, even at the lowest dilution.
Effects on the Liver and Kidney
Velvet Antler may aid in the treatment of these diseases in a manner comparable to steroid- based pharmaceuticals. Velvet Antler, due to its Androgenic activity, which increases the production of testosterone, was used to determine its effects on the liver and kidney. Liver tissue damaged with chloroform was able to recover following Antler Velvet treatment. In follow-up studies the protein formation in both the kidney and liver was enhanced, as a result of Velvet Antler on RNS polymerase (enzyme) activity.
Anti-Tumor - Cell Growth Stimulation - Athletic Performance
Velvet antler extracts are found to improve cell growth due to the nutrient rich and fast growing cartilage, which during investigation at AgResearch showed the cartilage contained many growth factors. After preliminary studies were completed, velvet extracts were shown not only to improve cell growth, but also showed anti-viral plus anti-tumor components. The Invermay scientists have shown that a natural hormone called "insulin-like growth factor or IGF-1" and a related hormone, IGF-2, promote growth in laboratory cells on culture plates. This group of scientists has recently shown antler cells have the capacity to create IGF themselves. Our growth hormone levels decrease as we age along with IGF-1 and the deterioration of muscle occurs. As a result, the use of deer velvet, with its natural source of IGF-1, can help keep the body slim and muscles toned.
Cell growth stimulation is of great importance to everyone, especially athletes. The use of deer velvet by successful Russian Olympic athletes has attracted the attention of trainers and sports doctors worldwide. Synthetic steroids are known to be potentially harmful. As such, natural and safe alternatives are essential. Deer Antler Velvet has been proven to improve muscular strength and increase endurance. New Zealand athletes, sponsored by the Game Industry Board, tested deer velvet and found it to be a safe performance enhancer without adverse side effects. Top golfers, world record rowers, a champion tri-athlete, and other outstanding athletes attribute part of their success to velvet antler extract.
Hypertension - Red Blood Cells
In a study conducted in Japan, ten patients who received velvet antler extract noted a significant reduction in arterial blood pressure. In eight of the patients, the systolic pressure was reduced by 20-70 points and the diastolic was lowered by as much as 10-20 points. This study points to the extract being 80% effective in lowering blood pressure. Deer Antler Velvet has long been acknowledged for escalating the volume of blood and its circulation throughout the body. Research has shown that it has a powerful erythopoetic effect, which in layman's terms means that it increases the formation of red blood cells (erythrocytes).
Research conducted by physicians and pharmacists indicate that the use of Antler Velvet significantly improves the heart function, regulating heart arrhythmias and improves blood circulation.
After taking Velvet Antler Extract for an extended period, many of our customers have noted healther hair and Faster growth of their hair. This appears to be an added and previously unknown benefit of our Extract.
Is Velvet Antler a Proven Aphrodisiac?
Although velvet antler has great energy producing properties and the Russian researchers have claimed it increases wide-ranging sexual function, we are hesitant to substantiate this claim without further research data.
In New Zealand Game Industry Boars former chief executive Rick Christie said, "There is extensive anecdotal evidence of Velvet's effectiveness, but now we're generating some rational scientific evidence to verify those claims. That's an important step for velvet in the international natural health market."
