Some people might find the concept of supplementing with ingredients such as velvet antler extract—which is found in the antlers of deer, moose and elk—to be quite strange. That is, until they learn about the many ways in which this extract positively influences their overall health and well-being. If you have never heard of VAE, it might help to get a little background information on this powerhouse super food.
What is it?
Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and ancient medicinal practices of the Eastern world for over 2,000 years, velvet antler has a myriad of therapeutic and medicinal benefits. Although practitioners of the past didn’t quite understand what exactly it was about this ingredient that made it so healing, they knew it had profound effects on the health of humans—which is what has led to the spread of it today in Western cultures.
This velvet antler extract is a powerful, modulating hormone that helps with the building, repair and regeneration of tissue and cells in our body. It can help increase bone density, balance hormones, and improve mood and cognition. One of the things that makes it so powerful is that it is packed with IGF-1, or insulin-like growth factor, which our body naturally produces, however in less and less amounts as we age.
Our Unique Velvet Antler Extraction Process
Grown in the antlers of animals such as deer and elk, the velvet antler is extracted by clipping it (in a process that is completely painless to the animal) while it is in the growth phase and pre-calcified state. Once clipped, it is then freeze-dried to ensure it maintains the highest-quality of constituents.
At BioProtein Technology, we use a three-step process that is unique to us. We never out-source; all of our supplements are 100% sustainably sourced and made using only raw, all-natural ingredients and materials. That is what makes our velvet antler extract supplements so effective—we never use toxic chemicals or synthetic versions that are found in other manufacturers.
In fact, we humanely raise the deer and elk on our family-owned Idaho farms to ensure the animals are safely an humanely raised which, in turn, allows us to oversee the entire extraction process—from birth to bottling—and ensure that we are providing only the safest and highest-quality of VAE possible.
