Lately, more and more people in New York City and all across America have been enjoying the benefits gained from supplementing with velvet antler extract (VAE). And while this may be a relatively new substance here in New York, it has been a vital ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine practices for thousands of years. At BioProtein, we believe that we have created the purest and most potent mixture of VAE currently available on the market.
What Is Velvet Antler Extract?
The animals belonging to the Cervidae family include deer, elk, moose, caribou, and many more. These are the only mammals that have regenerating appendages—their antlers. Each year, males will begin to grow a new set at the impressive rate of one inch per day! Over time, the antler will get too large and heavy, they will fall off, and the animal will begin to grow a new pair. Since they grow so quickly and have been used for so many years in Eastern medicine, we knew that these appendages were special. And we were right. Harvested correctly, velvet antler extract will be packed full of a naturally occurring growth hormone called IGF-1. While humans naturally produce this hormone, as we age, we begin to produce less and less, leading to decreases in energy and overall physical performance.
These days, many doctors in New York City and all over America are so focused on treating specific symptoms with pharmaceutical pills. However, at BioProtein we know there is something to be said about a supplement for healthy people as well. Velvet antler extract encourages whole body wellness; it will not treat one specific symptom, but instead, it will treat a variety of health conditions. Some of the health benefits VAE allows for include:
- Increased energy
- Anti-aging effects
- Quicker injury recovery time
- Quicker recovery time after a work out
- Immune system support
- Arthritis relief
- And more!
With so many companies in New York producing velvet antler extract and IGF-1 products, what makes us different is not only our method of extraction, but our method of bottling as well. Unlike many other manufacturers, our ingredients list is all natural; you won’t see any artificial flavors, dyes, or fillers. Many of the adverse effects associated with IGF-1 and VAE are because people were taking synthetic versions of the hormone, which can lead to your body being overloaded. With our pure IGF-1, your body will recognize the natural hormone, absorb what it needs, and filter the excess out.
We also use elk instead of deer to create our velvet antler extract for two main reasons. First, elk are generally healthier than deer, so they live longer. In addition, they are also much larger, with larger antlers; this allows us to harvest more VAE from less antlers. We raise our elk on our farm in Idaho and have perfected the extraction process to be completely painless and stress-free. We know that a stressed out animal will not be as healthy, which leads to an inferior product. At BioProtein, we strive to keep our animals as healthy and happy as possible.
To ensure our velvet antler extract stays potent and pure, we use amber glass bottles to store the product instead of plastic like many other companies. This blocks the sun’s rays from damaging the supplement and as keeps the polypeptides from binding with the plastic.
We are so confident in our products because of how much care and precision go into manufacturing them. We have strict rules governing everything from the extraction to the quality tests it must undergo before being sold. We are currently looking for doctors and health practitioners in New York City and all over America to become distributors for our many velvet antler extract products. We offer both men’s and women’s products, along with anti-aging, pre-workout, and support products.
