Although deer antler extract is a relatively new product to most people in America, it is only a matter of time before its many benefits became widely known. The reason so many people are turning to natural products to treat their health issues is because, in addition to being more accessible and less expensive than prescription pills, they are also relatively safer.
What is deer antler extract?
This extract comes from the whole cartilaginous antler in the pre-calcified stage. It is a superfood that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years, as one of the most used herbs. Also referred to as VAE (velvet antler extract), it often comes from red deer and elk, and the active ingredients include minerals, proteins, collagen, and lipids. One of the biggest ingredients, and most important, is the growth factor IGF-1. As elk typically have stronger antlers that grow at a quicker rate than deer, at BioLab Naturals, we only use elk antler extract in our products.
The antler can be divided up into three major components:
- The upper wax piece, which can be used for growth tonic in children
- The middle blood piece, which can be used to treat disorders in adults such as arthritis
- The bottom bone piece, which can be used for calcium deficiencies and as geriatric therapies
