Velvet Deer Antler has been used in oriental medicine for centuries to increase sexual desire and improve sexual performance.*

Body builders have used Velvet Deer Antler to boost stamina and help maintain muscle health.* Deer antler is harvested from deers raised on ranches. At the ideal time of the year, the antlers are removed and specially processed to make the natural components bioavailable to the human body. The fact that this is a 100% natural product that has to be specially harvested is what makes deer antler so expensive.

This product is recommended primarily for men.

Suggested dose is from two to eight capsules daily. This product is guaranteed to be 100% pure and is free of any preservatives, salt, sugar, yeast, coloring, binders, fillers or wheat. Store tightly closed in a cool, dry place.

Velvet Deer Antler The 2000-Year-Old Medicine By Alex Duarte, Ph.D. And John Abdo
In 1989, fitness expert John Abdo, who hosts a nationwide TV fitness show, visited the Institute of physical Culture in Moscow for an intensive two week investigation of the training programs of Russian athletes. At that time, John met with former Soviet weight-lifting champion Victor Sheynkin and training expert Yuri Verhoshansky. Sheynkin, who weighed only 132 pounds, could snatch over 286 pounds and clean & jerk over 360 pounds (both overhead lifts) and had became a Soviet Olympic coach, while Professor Verhoshansky had master minded numerous strength and conditioning routines for Soviet athletes since the early 1950s.

Later, in the United states, John met with Dr. Alex Duarte, who has been a pioneer in the movement to persuade athletes to replace the use of steroids with natural, safer products.

What Is Velvet Deer Antler?
Deer antlers grow at incredible speed and, after several weeks, as the antlers reach their final size, the cartilage within them gradually converts into bone. In the final process, the antler's blood supply and nerves are lost. When the antlers have fully hardened, the stags rub them against trees or rocks to remove the skin that remains. As a result of this rubbing, the deer develop sharp bony weapons for combat against threats to their harem of females during the autumn rut or mating season.

Each Spring the antler cycle begins a new and the skin around the pedicle expands and grows, initiating new antler growth. The hard antler from the previous season is cast off and the growth of the new season's velvet crop begins. It is then that the velvet is harvested for its medicinal and performance qualities.

When the velvet deer antler has been removed, it is allowed to cool on tilted racks just before being frozen. It is then ready to be processed. If it is removed at the right time, while still in the cartilaginous state, almost all of the antler can be used for medicinal purposes.

Benefits Of Velvet Deer Antler
Reports from the Orient, Russia, and New Zealand indicate that velvet deer antler has been used for centuries to support optimal health.

History Of Medicinal Use
The first documented evidence of the use of velvet deer antler was found on a silk scroll recovered from a Han tomb in the Human Province in China. The scroll is believed to be about 2,000 years old.

Oriental Medicine
The most important animal in oriental medicine is the deer because it is the animal with the most Yang energy.

Dr. Yoon and other doctors use velvet deer antler to arouse sexual desire in men. Dr. Lee Sangin of Kyung Hee University in South Korea uses velvet deer antler to provide women with optimal liver health. The medicinal use of velvet deer antler has been going on for 2,000 years, but it is only recently that scientific evidence has been developed to document its health benefits.

The natural properties of velvet deer antler may contribute to the body's natural healing abilities which are especially effective in people who suffer from arthritis.
