Dog Joint Problems and Deer Antler Velvet

Posted on September 12, 2014

arthritis2oldman&dog.H.GJackson2009Degenerative joint problems refer to a large set of symptoms and underlying problems common in dogs.

If your dog is experiencing joint related problems, you should consider consulting your veterinarian. After all, no one wants their dog to live in permanent pain, especially knowing there are treatments available.

Most common are arthritis and dysphasia. These problems can be genetically inherited, brought on by an injury or illness, or be part of old age. Occasionally a predisposition to joint problems is a breeding issue. One dog in five experiences joint problems of some sort with large heavy dogs having more problems than small and slender dogs. Varying degrees of lameness, stiffness, and pain can be experienced along with irritation and behavioral changes caused by pain.

Below you will find the most common symptoms of dog joint problems:


- Walking stiffly

- Limping or favoring certain limbs

- Stiffness or discomfort when getting up

- Displaying lameness in certain limbs

- Stiff, swollen, or sore joints

- Pain when touched in certain areas

- Finding certain positions uncomfortable or painful

- Loss of flexibility in their joints

- Hesitant to jump, run, or climb stairs


Degenerative joint disease is not curable. However proper treatment, especially early treatment, can prolong and improve a dog’s life. Effective treatments vary from weight loss and physical therapy to surgical cleaning of arthritic areas and joint replacement. Proper diet and beneficial supplements that aid in lubricating joints, rebuilding cartilage and maintaining muscle mass. Moderate exercise is recommended in most cases to preserve muscle mass and maintain joint flexibility. Swimming is excellent physical therapy for dogs with joint problems.

Deer Antler Velvet Dog Supplements

Changing their diet or adding special supplements can also be very helpful. Southern Cross Velvet Deer Antler Velvet is highly recommended by veterinarians around the world as a beneficial dog supplement. Deer Antler Velvet has been shown in studies to help dogs experiencing joint related problems. In fact, deer antler velvet is also effective for treating these symptoms in humans as well.

Deer Antler Velvet and IGF-2

Posted on September 4, 2014

holistic-supplements-for-mental-healthIGF-2 is a human hormone responsible for growth. This growth hormone serves several functions in the body. Some of the benefits of this hormone include reversing the signs of aging, facilitating weight loss, and increasing energy levels in the body. This unique growth factor is found naturally in Deer Antler Velvet and Deer Antler Extract.


IGF-2 is one of the growth hormones produced and secreted by cells in the Pituitary glands. The main functions of growth hormones are to promote the growth of soft and hard tissues and regulate metabolism by regulating the amount of sugar in the blood.

IGF-2 levels in the body are at their highest around puberty and begin to decline with age. Normal signs of aging such as reduction in bone density, reduction in muscle mass and increase in fat are results of declining IGF-2 levels.

How Insulin-Like Growth Factor Works

IGF-2 works directly and indirectly. The effects of IGF-2 are realized when the hormone binds directly to special receptors in the body or when the hormone causes the liver to secrete another growth hormone known as IGF-1, which has direct effects on cells.

The Role IGF-2 Plays in the Body

Cell, bone and muscle growth occur as indirect processes. IGF-2 plays three important roles in metabolism. It facilitates:

1. Protein synthesis

2. Breakdown of fats

3. The rate at which glucose is released into the bloodstream by the liver

IGF-2 facilitates the breakdown of fats in the body, which is used to create energy. However, when IGF-2 stimulates the liver to release more glucose into the bloodstream, the body does not immediately use up the glucose to create energy. This results in an increase in blood sugar levels. A decrease in blood sugar stimulates the secretion of IGF-2 to raise the blood sugar levels. An increase in amino acids in the body stimulates the secretion of IGF-2 so that the body can build more proteins from the amino acids. Stress, nutrition, exercise and sleep affect IGF-2 levels in the body.

IGF-2 and Disease

Very high and very low IGF-2 levels in the blood can cause diseases. An IGF-2 imbalance might be caused by two factors:

1. Dysfunction of the cells producing IGF-2

2. Problem with the cells that IGF-2 activates

Low IGF-2 levels in the body leads to growth retardation or dwarfism. An abnormally high level of IGF-2 causes gigantism or acromegaly. This condition begins in childhood and can be caused by a tumor in the organs that produce IGF-2. Excessive production of IGF-2 hormone in adulthood is known as acromegaly. This disease is caused by the growth of a tumor in the pituitary glands and causes the arms and legs to overgrow.

Uses of IGF-2

IGF-2 is usually administered to children who are deficient of IGF-2 because without it they have stunted growth. While the potential of IGF-2 growth hormone continues to be tested, it shows potential as a possible treatment for slowing the normal symptoms of aging. Deer Antler Velvet and Deer Antler Extract contain IGF-2 and are used to treat various ailments that result from the deficiency of the hormone around the world as a natural alternative to synthetic IGF-2. IGF-2 is found in our IGF-1 Velvet Growth Factor Matrix Spray, along with many other useful hormones. If you'd like to give our product a try, give us a call at 877-414-0048.

IGF-1: An Essential Component Of Deer Antler Velvet

Posted on March 27, 2014

imagesDeer Antler Velvet is used by active people to receive the following benefits: to promote healthy joint functions, for bone and blood health, to increase athletic performance, to aid in the recovery of tissue damage, to support memory function, and to support blood pressure and cardiovascular health. Deer Antler Velvet also has strong anti-aging properties.

People gave been asking us for details about some of the important ingredients and substances contained in Southern Cross Deer Antler Velvet. Of special interest are glucosamine, amino acids, pantocrin, and the two Insulin-Like Growth Factors IGF-1 and IGF-2. In the next few blog posts, we will address these five substances, all found in our products.

Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) is a hormone which acts on the body in a similar way to insulin. It is important in childhood growth, and has anabolic effects on adults.

IGF-1 is secreted by the liver. It is an important element in human growth and also regulates normal adult physiology.

What causes variations in levels of IGF-1?

Many factors will affect the levels of IGF-1 in your body, including your age, your level of stress, your exercise routine, genetics, your nutritional level, estrogen status and many other factors.

A number of recent clinical studies are beginning to demonstrate the important role that IGFs play in the treatment and control of two of our biggest killers - cancer and diabetes.

There are many important therapeutic uses now being discovered for IGF-1. It is used to stimulate growth in children. Growth hormone is now available as a prescription medicine as a form of hormone therapy. Mecasermin (brand name Increlex) is a synthesized IGF-1 and has been approved by the FDA to treat growth failure.

IGF-1 has also been shown to play an important role in the treatment of several other disorders, including type 1 and type 2 diabetes, where it can reduce hemoglobin A1C levels, as well as daily insulin consumption.

It is also used to treat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and has applications in burn injury and myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD). Recently, two drug companies, Tercica and Insmed, obtained FDA approval to make IGF-1 available in the US: Tercica's IGF-1 drug is called Increlex and is marketed as replacement therapy for severe primary IGF-1 deficiency. Insmed's IGF-1/IGFBP-3 complex has similar applications.

IGF-1, glucosamine, pantocrene, amino acids, and IGF-1 and IGF-2 are all vital to our optimal health and well-being. Most Americans who take dietary supplements take these in combination with each other. These elements are all found naturally in Southern Cross Deer Antler Velvet.

How Collagen In Deer Antler Spray Can Help You

Posted on March 5, 2014

CollagenCollagen is the main component of the body's connective tissue, and is the largest source of protein in mammals. And that obviously includes us humans. Collagen is a protein comprising amino acids, which are in turn built of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Collagen contains the specific amino acids including glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine.

Collagen is a group of naturally-occurring proteins, existing primarily in the flesh and connective tissue of all vertebrates. It is a fibrous material and is found in the tendon, the ligaments and the skin, as well as in blood vessels, the gut, the cornea, the invertebral disk, and also in the bone.

Collagen is thirty percent of the body's proteins - the tough structures like bones, tendons and ligaments. It is also vital for skin elasticity, helping to keep the skin firm and supple, and to help renew skin cells. Collagen protects the skin by preventing the absorption of pathogenic substances, environmental toxins, micro-organisms and cancerous cells. It has been called "the protein that holds everything together".

Autoimmune diseases like lupus erythematosus or rheumatoid arthritis may attack otherwise healthy collagen fibers. Scurvy, caused by a lack of Vitamin C, is another serious condition that can seriously affect your collagen. A deficiency of Vitamin C can cause your gums to deteriorate and can prevent wounds from healing. The British are still called "Limeys" because for centuries the British navy used to supply all its sailors with limes to prevent scurvy.

There are twenty-eight different types of collagen present in the human body, and ninety percent of the body is collagen. The main types of collagen are:

  • Collagen I, which is found in the skin, the tendons, in organs, and in bones;
  • Collagen II, found in the cartilage;
  • Collagen III, which is present in reticulate main fibers commonly found alongside Collagen I;
  • Collagen IV, which forms the basal lamina, the epitheliu-secreted layer of base fibers;
  • Collagen V, which is found in cell surfaces of your hair and placenta.

Collagen is also present in the smooth muscle tissue, in blood vessels, and in the heart, digestive tract, kidneys and gall bladder. It is also the main component of hair and nails.

Collagen is naturally present in Southern Cross Deer Antler Velvet. Imported from New Zealand, the production of our deer antler velvet is strictly controlled by the New Zealand government, which ensures that the deer do not suffer during the production. Deer Antler Velvet is used for it many health benefits, including the promotion of bone and blood health, to improve athletic performance, aiding in the recovery after tissue injury, to prevent or delay osteoarthritis, to support memory function and cardiovascular health, and for its anti-aging properties.

Glucosamine in Deer Antler Velvet

Posted on February 7, 2014

glucosamineDeer Antler Velvet contains Glucosamine naturally. Glucosamine is an amino sugar. There are more than 60 amino sugars, many of which have only recently been identified as components of antibiotics. Other examples of amino sugars include N-Acetylglucosamine, Galactosamine, Sialic Acid, and L-Daunosamine.

What Are The Health Benefits of Glucosamine?

Glucosamine plays a vital role in the biochemical synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids. Glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans are a major component of joint cartilage.

In the USA, glucosamine is the most commonly-used non-vitamin, non-mineral dietary supplement.

Glucosamine is most commonly extracted from the exoskeletons of crustaceans and other anthropods. And it is also present in Southern Cross Velvet Deer Antler velvet.

Glucosamine is one of the most abundant monosaccharides. It is produced commercially by the hydrolysis of crustacea, or sometimes by fermentation of wheat or corn. Other places where glucosamine is present is in the shells of shellfish, animal bones, bone marrow, and fungi.

Oral glucosamine is a dietary supplement and not a pharmaceutical drug. Glucosamine is marketed to support the structure and function of joints. Many who take glucosamine are using it to treat osteoarthritis - or hoping to delay its onset.

The most commonly-sold forms of glucosamine are glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, and N-acetylglucosamine. Glucosamine is also often sold together with other supplements like chondroitin sulfate. However, glucosamine is found in Deer Antler Velvet and Deer Antler Velvet spray.

In the US, glucosamine is not approved as a medical drug. But in many European countries it is approved and is marketed in the form of glucosamine sulfate.

Glucosamine is typically taken together with chondroitin sulfate, IGF-1, IGF-2, and prostaglandin. All five of these vital elements are found in Southern Cross Velvet Deer Antler Velvet.

In addition to its properties of promoting joint functions and promoting bone and blood health, Deer Antler velvet is used to enhance athletic performance, to aid recovery after tissue damage, to support memory function, for improved cardiovascular health, and for its anti-aging properties.

Iron: Yet Another Reason To Take Deer Antler Velvet

Posted on January 13, 2014

The iron in deer antler velvet has anti-aging effects.

Iron one of the many minerals in deer antler velvet is a vital mineral in your body. It helps you get oxygen in your blood, and without sufficient oxygen, the body cannot function at peak efficiency. Simply put - if you do not get enough iron, your body will not get enough oxygen. An iron deficiency can lead to one of several infectious diseases. But too much iron in the body can be a problem, so it is important that you receive the right amount of iron.

How Can The Iron In Deer Antler Velvet Help You?

In addition to supplying your blood with oxygen, iron is also known to reduce infections of "pathogenic" diseases. But iron is also known to increase the liability of infection to salmonella typhimurium or entamoeba histolytica. So it is important that you receive the right amount of iron for your body.

If you do not have sufficient iron in your body, you become anemic. The major causes of anemia are heavy menstrual bleeding, not eating foods rich in iron, heavy bleeding caused by ulcers, hemmoroids or cancer, bleeding after menopause, or if your body has difficulty absorbing iron because you have celiac disease or if part of your stomach or intestine has been removed.

The symptoms of anemia are often not noticed until the problem has become acute. Indications that you have a serious iron deficiency include feeling weak, tired, dizzy, grumpy, or cranky, you are experiencing headaches, are looking pale, short of breath, or have trouble concentrating.

The primary use of iron supplements is to treat anemia and iron-like related deficiencies. Side effects of iron use may include diarrhea or constipation, and epigastric abdominal discomfort. Taking your iron supplement together with your meals can usually decrease these negative side effects. Absorption of iron is decreased if you take antacids, and ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is often recommended to better absorb iron in the body.

Iron is found naturally in meat, fish and poultry. Vegans and vegetarians who do not usually eat these foods should probably take an iron supplement. Iron is also found in vegetables such as kale, spinach, and brocoli, and also in dried fruits, beans, nuts, peas and lentils. Iron is also added to foods like cereals and breads to fortify them. You should read the labels on such products to see if iron has been added, and if so, how much.

If you are a highly active athlete, you may also experience something called "pseudoanemia". This is a condition where the body has inadequate hemoglobin due to an increase in blood plasma that causes a thinning of the hemoglobin. This can make you appear anemic when you are not.

Iron is found naturally in Southern Cross Velvet Deer Antler Velvet, together with other vital nutrients like glucosamine, collagen, amino acids, pantocrene, and the Insulin Growth Factors IGF-1,IGF-2 and many more growth factors. People use Deer Antler Velvet to promote healthy joint functions and bone and blood health, to enhance athletic performance, to aid in recovery after tissue damage, to support memory function, and for its anti-aging effects. Imported from New Zealand, the production of Southern Cross Deer Antler velvet is strictly controlled by the New Zealand government to ensure the highest quality deer antler velvet and that the deer experience no cruelty during the production process.

More Americans Than Ever Are Taking Nutritional Supplements

Posted on October 30, 2013

Living Healthy Is Made Easier With Nutritional SupplementsAmericans are taking more nutritional supplements than ever before. Also known as dietary supplements, it is estimated that over one half of all Americans take one or more supplements every day. Deer Antler Spray and Deer Antler Velvet powder products are a great addition to your supplement routine.

Multi-Vitamins: The Most Commonly-Used Dietary Supplement

Multi-vitamins are the most commonly used of all the nutritional supplements. According to the national Center for Health Statistics data Brief, it is estimated that 40 per cent of Americans take a multi-vitamin at least once a day.

Dr. Todd Cooperman MD, President of, an independent organization that evaluates dietary supplements, says that more and more people today are self-treating with vitamins and other supplements due to the "down economy". Dr. Cooperman's organization reports that the most common use for supplements is to "improve or maintain overall health". Deer Antler Velvet is the optimum health supplement for maintaining and improving overall health and as a sports supplement to help increase strength and endurance.

US Nutritional Supplement Users Are Healthier Than The General Population

ConsumerLab's findings show that supplement users are generally in good or excellent health, have health insurance, use alcohol moderately, and exercise more than non-users. Also, it has been reported that supplement use is higher among women than men, and use increases with age and education. Since 1995, there has been a significant increase in the number of younger people taking nutritional substances.

People in Different Age Groups Use Supplements For Different Reasons

There is a difference between younger people (under sixty years of age) and older people (those over 60) when it comes to nutritional supplements. Younger people report that they use supplements to achieve and maintain general overall health, while older people use supplements to address site-specific reasons like heart, joint, bone or eye health. It is also noteworthy that one-quarter of nutritional supplements used by adults were recommended by a health care professional.

Nutritional Supplements Not Regulated By FDA

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate nutritional supplements as a drug, but rather as a food. If a supplement manufacturer claims its supplement can cure any disease, the supplement is treated as an unapproved - and therefore illegal - drug. But we at Southern Cross Velvet cannot make any unsubstantiated claims about our product: our product is all imported from New Zealand, and the New Zealand government regulates very strictly the harvesting, production and distribution of deer antler velvet. Without US government regulation, this is the one single factor that can protect you and will give you peace of mind when using our Southern Cross Velvet Deer Antler Spray supplement.

At Southern Cross Velvet, We Are Animal Lovers

The Athletic Benefits Of Using Deer Antler Velvet Spray

Posted on October 30, 2013

Deer Antler Velvet Helps Athletes Perform BetterWho Uses Southern Cross Deer Antler Velvet?

When we first started importing Southern Cross Velvet Deer Antler Velvet from New Zealand over 14 years ago, most of our initial customers were older. But in the past few years, we have found that half of the customers now using our product are athletes and other health-conscious individuals who are significantly younger than our original users.

Different Motivation For Different Age Groups

There is a difference in the motivation to use deer antler velvet spray between older users and younger, more athletic users. Older users say they use nutritional supplements to target site-specific areas like heart, kidney, liver or bone health; younger athletes say they use nutritional supplements for overall general health.

What Is A Balanced Diet?

Most people take nutritional supplements because they do not eat a balanced diet. However, there has never been a complete clinical study that documents exactly what comprises a balanced diet. Several new studies have shown that food alone does not supply all the micronutrients necessary for optimal health. There is a need to prevent deficiencies of certain necessary nutrients in the body, let alone achieve optimal health. Most of us do not have access to healthy, organically-grown food. That is the reason we need to take dietary supplements. Even if we could get all the necessary nutrients from our diet, there are few people who can actually stick to that diet. That's why we need supplements and Deer Antler Velvet is a excellent sports supplement, mobility supplement and optimal general health supplement.

Athletes Deplete Micronutrients More than Others

Of us all, endurance athletes do not receive sufficient micronutrients to maintain optimal health. Today's athletes get only 11% of the necessary organic nutrients from their food sources compared with the athletes of the 1940's. Professor Bruce Ames of UC Berkeley suggests that micronutrient deficiency may eventually deteriorate the quality of the healthy human cell. In their book "The Real Vitamin and Mineral Book", authors Lieberman and Bruning stated that athletes "tend to deplete vitamins, minerals, enzymes, coenzymes more than sedentary people do."

Micronutrient Deficiencies Can Cause Serious Problems

Deficiencies of micronutrients in people who regularly participate in athletics may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay. Athletes know that deficiencies in micronutrients may cause DNA damage. There is also evidence that long-term supplementation may be necessary to achieve cognitive benefits later in life.

Southern Cross Deer Antler Velvet Is The Solution

Deer Antler Velvet is the best natural dietary supplement, and has the ability to enhance health and can delay the aging process. Deer Antler Velvet is held in high esteem by professional athletes and weekend warriors. Deer Antler Velvet has been shown to increase mental and physical energy, physical strength, alertness and endurance, and has been shown to be effective in combating fatigue and the serious effects of stress.

A Superior Nutritional Supplement

As we state on our website, with all the minerals and nutrients necessary to maintain good health, Southern Cross Velvet Deer Antler powder, Deer Antler Extract and Deer Antler Spray are a superior natural source for growth factor hormones IGF-1, IGF-2, amino acids, and prostaglandin.

Deer Antler Velvet is a natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, which are potent anti-inflammatory agents, with the added effects of collagen, which lubricates and helps repair joints.
