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.
