While it has been used as a main ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years, deer antler is still relatively new here in the United States. In a country to looks to pharmaceutical drugs to fix everything, no matter the side effects, this new supplement offers a natural, healthy alternative. At Bio Lab Naturals, we are a national manufacturing and distribution company that creates products with velvet antler extract and IGF-1 that offer health benefits ranging from anti-aging to increased injury recovery time!


The words velvet antler extract refer to the whole cartilaginous deer antler in a pre-calcified stage. Deer, elk, moose, and other animals in the Cervidae family are the only mammals with regenerating organs (antlers), which is why physicians in ancient China considered them so special. In fact, antlers are second only to ginseng in popularity and importance in Eastern Medicine. Thousands of years later, there is scientific proof demonstrating that antlers are packed full of many beneficial growth hormones, namely IGF-1.

This master growth factor is found in different levels, depending on which area of the antler you look at. The upper section (wax piece) is used as a growth tonic for children; the middle section (blood piece) is used to treat adults with joint problems; and the bottom section (bone piece) is used for calcium deficiency and geriatric therapies. The tip is the most expensive and sought-after part of the antler.

Bio Lab Naturals’ Products

While Eastern Medicine has concentrated mainly on deer antlers, at Bio Lab Naturals, we have found that deer’s larger cousin elks offer a higher grade of antler. Not only are they larger, but elk are also generally healthier and live longer than deer, which means a higher quality of product will be available for a longer amount of time.

In addition, instead of purchasing our velvet antler extract from farms in New Zealand like many other distributors, we have taken better control of our products by raising our own elk here in America, on a farm in Idaho. This way we can control the entire process, “from birth to bottling.”

Our IGF-1 and velvet antler extract products are currently being sold by doctors’ offices, med spas, anti-aging clinics, personal trainers, gyms, chiropractors, health food stores, vitamin stores, OBGYNs, weight loss clinics, and wellness clinics all over America. VAE isn’t just for humans; dogs, too, can benefit from the regenerative properties of elk antler extract thanks to our all-natural dog food supplements.
