Elk Velvet (100% Pure Velvet Antler)
WHAT IS ELK VELVET?
Elk Velvet Antler (EVA) has been used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for centuries, dating back as early as the Han dynasty (206 BC to 220 AD). But its use expanded far past Asia. First century Roman army commander Plinius Secundus saw its potential benefit for epilepsy.
Edward Topsell, author of "The History of Four-Footed Beasts" in 1607 described EVA as an enhancer of sexual virility, a general tonic, and helpful for conditions including pimples, baldness, snakebites, lice infestations and toothaches.
It has been used to build the blood and strengthen bones and muscles. It has also been used to improve blood circulation and modulate the immune system.
EVA has been reported to contain all essential amino acids, collagen, hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycan and chondroitin sulfate, polysaccharides, and a number of fatty acids. EVA is high in calcium, phosphorus, iron, and zinc.
The predominant amino acids in EVA are glycine, alanine, proline, and glutamic acid. Classes of lipid found in antlers include fatty acids, glycolipids, and phospholipids. Lysophosphatidylcholine with palmitic acid accounts for 50% of the total fatty acids extracted from antler velvet. Other than organic compounds, velvet antlers contain minerals such as Ca, P, Mg, Fe, K, and Na as major components and Ni, Cu, Ti, Mn, Sn, Si, and Ba as minor components.
Combined with Mitolife Panacea (shilajit), this premium grade, freeze dried, USA-sourced EVA could be used in a protocol to help improve overall strength and stamina.
Take 1 or more capsules with a meal. Each capsule contains 250 mg of Elk Velvet Antler.
ARE THE ELK HARMED?
Antlers are the only appendages among mammals that regenerate every year. They are also among the only appendages where it is possible to harvest without harm or disfigurement to the animal.
We cut the velvet on elk bulls that are 2-4 years old when the antlers have grown to the stage between 4th and 5th tyne. This is when the developing antlers have reached the peak of their nutritional value, when the horns are still soft and covered with velvety fur. We bring the animal into a shed and into a squeeze chute that holds them in place. We cut off the antler and then treat with an ointment. There is 1 inch of antler remaining on the head. The animal experiences no pain during this process. They may feel a little warmth from the saw while cutting. As soon as antler is removed they are released back into the pen they came from. They are eating and drinking water almost immediately. The antler grows back again the next year usually bigger and better.
The velvet is stripped from the antler and freeze dried to preserve its high nutrient content and then turn it into a pure, 100 percent velvet powder.
