Frequently asked questions
Deer Antler Velvet Extract, Powder, and
What is Deer Antler Velvet?
It is a natural supplement with no added chemicals or, simply
stated, the Creator's gift for all creatures. Deer antlers grow
extremely rapidly and are naturally cast every year thus beginning
a new cycle of growth. Velvet is the young antler in a cartilaginous
state, harvested both for its nutritional and medicinal value
and to prevent injury to the stags during the rutting season.
Although contrary to the name, the velvety fur covering is removed
during processing and is not included in the antler velvet supplements.
Is this a completely humane practice?
Absolutely. The harvesting of velvet is controlled by a strict
Veterinary Code of Conduct in New Zealand, under the supervision

well-supplied with blood vessels. The stags are then immediately
released to graze. Deer in New Zealand are prized animals and
their health and well-being is of the utmost importance to the
farmers. This practice has the endorsement of veterinarians, animal
behaviorists and animal welfarists.
