Antler Farms® introduces a highly concentrated deer antler velvet extract to further establish its position as the leading manufacturer of the world's best deer antler velvet products.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
Deer antler spray has been gaining a lot of popularity as the ultimate fitness supplement among athletes and bodybuilders. Unfortunately, unscrupulous companies have flooded the marketplace with mediocre products to capitalize on the opportunity at the expense of the honest consumer.
Independent lab tests routinely show that most of the deer antler velvet products being sold today, whether cheap or expensive, are completely lacking in active ingredients despite being advertised, labeled, and branded as the strongest extracts. As a result, the average consumer has difficulty discerning which products are the best.
Antler Farms®, the leading manufacturer of 100% pure deer antler velvet, has released an authentic deer antler velvet extract made using proprietary, confidential processes. The extract is produced with a 75:1 extract ratio, meaning it takes 75 pounds of raw deer antler velvet to make one pound of Antler Farms® deer antler velvet extract - a very strong, potent concentration.
"What is unique about our extract is that it has the highest concentration of active ingredients and it is processed without the use of chemicals or heat [which are known to degrade deer antler velvet]. Our innovative process maintains the full growth factor matrix of deer antler velvet and then goes a step further by boosting the IGF-1 content far beyond the normal levels," said Eric Knight, a representative of Antler Farms®.
IGF-1 is a hormone that is produced naturally in the human body which stimulates cell growth and repair in muscle, cartilage, bone, nerves and skin. IGF-1 also encourages the body to use fat as a source of energy instead of glucose. Therefore, increasing the levels of IGF-1 in the body can help grow muscle, speed recovery and burn fat.
Each bottle of Antler Farms® deer antler velvet extract contains 12,000 ng of IGF-1. Antler Farms®' quality control program ensures that each batch of finished product is identical and that the high quality standards are met or exceeded.
"The addition of deer antler velvet extract to our product line further establishes Antler Farms® as the manufacturer of the world's best deer antler velvet products," Knight said. "Antler Farms® is the only deer antler velvet producer that excludes the inferior bottom segment of 'whole stick' antler in its capsules. And now, our deer antler velvet extract is made with a proprietary process that yields an unmatched 75:1 extract ratio."
The high concentration of active ingredients means Antler Farms® deer antler velvet will give consumers quicker results, more improvements and increased benefits.

Antler Farms®, the leading manufacturer of 100% pure deer antler velvet, is seeking feedback from deer antler velvet consumers. For a limited time, Antler Farms® is offering company apparel for those who submit a short testimonial and photo through their website.
Deer antler velvet is a natural dietary supplement made from deer antler while in its growth stage. It contains nearly 40 key compounds and 400 active ingredients that act on the body’s own systems to protect, strengthen and restore functions that are out of balance. The nutrients in deer antler velvet can help improve general health, blood circulation, bone and joint health, sexual function and athletic performance.
Although deer antler velvet has been used for more than 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine, its use in the west began only about 50 years ago. While deer antler velvet continues to play a fundamental role in the treatment of disease in Asia, outside of Asia it has been taken primarily for improved muscular strength, endurance, recovery and overall athletic performance. The supplement is becoming increasingly popular in the United States among athletes and bodybuilders.
The response time and effectiveness of deer velvet supplementation depends on the potency of the product and the dosage taken. Some people immediately notice the positive effects while others gradually observe a difference over a few months.
"Despite the controversy and skepticism around the use of deer antler velvet, there are literally millions of people who use it," said Eric Knight, a representative of Antler Farms®. "Not just elite athletes who compete professional and Olympic sports, but normal, everyday people from all walks of life. They use deer antler velvet products to improve their general health and well-being."
"I can't tell you all the benefits of using deer antler velvet better than customers who share their personal experiences," Knight stated. "We want to hear their stories."
Increase in demand for deer antler velvet products following use by professional athletes caused shortage of supply.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
NFL linebacker Ray Lewis denied it. Professional golfers Vijay Singh and Bob Charles admitted it. University of Alabama football players kept quiet.
When media stories of athletes' usage of deer velvet supplements surfaced earlier this year, it was the first time most people had ever heard of deer antler velvet. With the surge in publicity came a surge in sales, with some deer velvet manufacturers reporting four to five times as many sales as the year before. Many nutritional supplement retailers were completely sold out.
“Due to the recent interest in deer antler velvet products, the supply we had on hand was not enough to meet the demand,” said Eric Knight, a representative of Antler Farms®, a leading producer of premium deer antler velvet. “We started a wait list and began processing more deer velvet immediately.”
According to Knight, Antler Farms® has since fulfilled all of its backorders and has supply readily available for new customers.
“Supply of quality deer antler velvet has always been limited,” said Knight. “There is an annual cycle of deer antler growth. You can’t just grow more antler at will.”
Male deer grow antlers each year in preparation for the mating season. For use as a nutritional supplement, antlers must be removed about two months into their growth stage. At this time, the soft antlers are full of nutrients, before significant calcification occurs.
Once removed, deer antler velvet can be stored frozen until it is further processed for sale. Deer are not killed for their antler. Rather, the incentive for deer farmers is to breed and raise the healthiest deer, which in turn produce the highest grade deer antler velvet.
Most of the high quality deer velvet in the worldwide market is sold to Asia, where it has a long history of use in medicine. Asian buyers know what to look for in deer velvet and are willing to pay for the best stock. The United States is just beginning to understand and accept the use of deer antler velvet as a nutritional and sports supplement.
Antler Farms® is home to a robust herd of red deer in the rolling hills of New Zealand. Their deer antler velvet is processed using techniques that are more labor intensive and more time consuming than conventional methods.
“There are so many low grade products out on the market. But we’d rather do it right than do it fast,” Knight said. “We start by raising naturally healthy deer and we harvest the deer antler velvet at the peak of potency. We only use high grade parts of the antler and we process it carefully to ensure all the vital nutrients are maintained. In the end, our product has the highest concentration of active ingredients which means quicker results, more improvements, and greater benefits.”
Deer antler velvet is believed to stimulate the body’s own systems to protect, strengthen and restore functions that are out of balance. Furthermore, modern scientific research indicates that deer velvet antler can help increase muscular strength, increase endurance, and assist in recovery.
“I don’t think the deer velvet industry will ever see that kind of widespread press again. We have an audience now that we’ve never had before. The market has grown tremendously,” Knight said.
Knight noted that Antler Farms®’ active clients were not affected by the sudden demand because their orders were already accounted for. The shortage only meant that new customers had a bit of a wait.
“I am as excited to ship out orders as our customers are to receive them,” Knight said. Knight stated that within a couple of months, he expects to hear back from new customers about the positive changes they've experienced.
It will be worth the wait.
Deer velvet antler sales are hot after SI.com reports of NFL player's usage. On Tuesday, SI.com reported Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis consumed deer velvet antler to help him recover from a torn tricep injury.

Deer antler velvet?
On Tuesday, SI.com reported that Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis consumed deer antler velvet pills and deer antlery spray to help him recover from a torn triceps injury suffered on October 4, 2012. Since then, interest in deer velvet antler has been sky high, according to New Zealand deer velvet antler manufacturer Antler Farms®.
Eric Knight, Sales Manager at Antler Farms® reports that sales and inquiries were up dramatically since the SI article was published. Knight stated that Antler Farms® supplies deer antler velvet to many athletes around the world who take the supplement as part of their training regimen. These athletes, according to Knight, understand that deer antler velvet produces a wide range of performance enhancing benefits, including increases in strength, more endurance and shortened recovery time. "But not everyone who takes deer antler velvet is trying to be more athletic," Knight stated. "A good portion of our clientele is comprised of normal, everyday people, who take the product for general health and just want a better quality of life."
How does it work?
The exact mechanism is unclear. Deer antler velvet is comprised of nearly 40 key compounds and 400 active ingredients, including amino acids, IGF-1 and 2, glycosaminoglycans and lipids. Scientists believe that deer velvet antler has an effect on many systems of the body given its complex chemical composition. The active ingredients in deer velvet antler are mostly precursors that are required by the body to process substances that maintain its health and well being. Therefore, deer velvet antler stimulates the body's own systems to protect, strengthen and restore functions that are out of balance. It restores homeostasis to an unbalanced body by helping where it is needed.
"Our deer velvet antler capsules is a 100% natural food," Knight says. "It is safer than any drug because it is a whole food that acts on the whole body."
History of use
Deer antler velvet has been around for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has been used in the Western world since the 1960's, first by Russian bodybuilders. Antler Farms® reports that almost 250 papers have been published since 1930 on the effects of deer antler velvet. However, deer antler velvet has been under the radar for most of the general public. Now, people are beginning to hear about and read about it. And many people, it seems, want to try it out for themselves.
"We've had to put up a waiting list (for people wanting to buy the deer antler velvet)," said Knight. "Sales are through the roof."
Antler Farms®, producer of the world's best deer antler velvet, clears the air on today's most controversial supplement.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Deer antler velvet is a hot topic these days. Interest in the supplement has been sky high ever since Sports Illustrated reported of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis’ alleged usage of deer antler velvet pills and deer antler spray to help him recover from a torn triceps injury. Until recently, deer antler velvet has been unknown to most of the general public. Now nearly everyone has heard about it. Unfortunately, there has been a lot of misinformation in the media about deer antler velvet.
Deer antler velvet is antler in its growth stage. The name comes from the fuzzy covering that forms over antlers during this time. “Deer antler velvet supplements are not made from the outermost layer of skin as most media reports incorrectly state,” said Eric Knight, a representative of Antler Farms®, a New Zealand deer velvet antler manufacturer. “They are made from the antler themselves.”
“When antlers are growing, they are soft and spongy and full of nutrients,” Knight explained. “The antlers are removed before they harden."
Another misconception is that deer are killed for their antler. “Deer grow and shed their antlers every year. No deer are harmed in the process,” Knight stated. In New Zealand, regulations require that the antler removal procedure is performed by a licensed veterinarian.
Is deer antler velvet a new supplement?
Despite its recent popularity, deer antler velvet usage is nothing new. Deer antler velvet has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It was introduced to the Western world in the 1960's by Russian bodybuilders who used it to increase muscle strength. “There have been studies in Russia, Korea, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand,” Knight said. “Almost 250 papers have been published since 1930 on the effects of deer velvet antler. We know it works.”
Knight stated that Antler Farms® supplies deer antler velvet to many athletes around the world who take the supplement as part of their training regimen. These athletes, according to Knight, understand that deer antler velvet produces a wide range of performance enhancing benefits, including increases in strength, more endurance and shortened recovery time. "But not everyone who takes deer antler velvet is trying to be more athletic," Knight stated. "A good portion of our clientele is comprised of normal, everyday people, who take the product for general health and just want a better quality of life."

Therefore, deer antler velvet stimulates the body's own systems to protect, strengthen and restore functions that are out of balance. It restores homeostasis to an unbalanced body by helping where it is needed.
Is deer antler velvet banned in professional sports?
It depends. Deer antler velvet is generally available in three forms: spray/extract, dried slices, powder/capsules.
Deer antler spray or extract is made by isolating IGF-1 (insulin growth factor) and blending it with other chemicals in a laboratory. The extract is taken sublingually and is absorbed into the bloodstream. IGF-1 is a banned substance in professional sports and therefore use of the extract is prohibited by some, but not all, professional sports.
Dried deer antler velvet slices, powder, and capsules are natural forms of deer velvet antler. The slices are used to make tea in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The powder is encapsulated in products like Antler Farms® deer antler velvet.
"Our deer antler velvet capsules are a 100% natural food," Knight says. "It is made by grinding dried deer velvet antler into a powder, with no other processing. It is safer than any drug because it is a whole food that acts on the whole body. Deer velvet antler, in its natural state, will never be banned. It would be like banning other natural sources of IGF-1, like milk and eggs.”
