Since our simple Southern California beginnings in mid-2001, BioProtein has grown to become the nation’s leader in velvet antler extract (VAE) products. Today, our corporate headquarters are located in Tampa, Florida. While the extracts’ attributes have been widely documented, not all products are created equally. For this reason, BioProtein Technology places VAE at the very center of our products.

Our Company

We are a vertically integrated company overseeing the entire process, from the conception of the elk at our farm facility in Idaho, to the bottling of our unique velvet antler extract product. Our breeding program is crafted to raise animals that produce the most abundant and highest quality VAE possible, while simultaneously serving the needs of the animals. The timing and methods we use to harvest the antlers are second to none.

Our Products

Our process ensures the health and welfare of our animals, as well as the safety and high standard of our products. Like any farming trade, producing a high quality product requires years of experience, knowledge, and passion for the product.

Velvet Antler Extract

The Extraction Process

We maintain the animals that provide our velvet antler extract at optimum levels of health and use a harvesting process that does not cause the animals any pain or excessive stress. The stags are never in danger during the harvesting process and BioProtein Technology takes the appropriate measures to ensure that the animals are not harmed in any way. Our methods guarantee the highest quality products for our customers and allow for our company to sustain beneficial business.

Each year, a harvest of velvet antler is collected by clipping them during mating season, while they are in their growth phase. Over the course of the following year, the antlers are regrown, making our product renewable and environmentally friendly. Once the antler is clipped, it is freeze-dried and put through our own extraction process to ensure the high quality of its constituents.

We have developed a three-step extraction process, unique to BioProtein Technology, to create our VAE. We take pride in having the most potent and bio-actively available velvet antler extract on the market. None of the BioProtein Technology raw materials are outsourced or sold to other suppliers.

An Improved Bottling Method

BioProtein Technology products only use amber glass bottles which prevent harmful effects of sunlight from degrading the bioactive components of the extract, thus protecting the quality and the effectiveness of our VAE products both before it reaches, and while in the hands of the customer. Since growth factor molecules tend to bind to plastic (bottles, droppers, and spray nozzles), the all-glass container prevents polypeptides from binding. Therefore, our packaging provides a superior environment for the velvet antler extract products.

A Superior Delivery System

The use of organic grape alcohol in our velvet antler extract products works to stimulate the under the tongue tissue responsible for allowing the diffusion of nutrients into the bloodstream.

The unique properties of organic grape sugars make organic grape alcohol an exemplary extractor of nutrients all the while preserving the organic components of the VAE. In addition to being hypoallergenic, our grape alcohol is entirely free from gluten as well as genetic modification.

Benefits of Our Delivery System

For sensitive compounds subject to high rates of degradation and/or low intestinal absorption, oral routes of delivery offer major advantages over traditional encapsulated formulas. This process avoids the degrading action of the gastrointestinal tract poor absorption in the intestines, and of the metabolism in the liver, which may decrease the bioactivity of traditional ingested tablets by 90%.

Instead, the oral delivery mechanism of our product allows the nutrient’s rich bioactive molecules to be absorbed directly into the blood stream orally and through the interior lining of your cheeks. BioProtein Technology products are designed to achieve maximum bioactivity, absorption and effectiveness.

Our choice of delivery method ensures that the important growth factors contained in the velvet antler extract are delivered unaltered into the body and at a high rate of absorption, rather than broken down in the digestive tract.
