Why is Elk Antler Velvet supplement superior to Deer Antler Velvet?

What is Velvet Supplement?

Elk and deer velvet covers the growing bone and cartilage that develops into antlers. People use velvet as medicine for a wide range of health problems. Some benefits include:

• Enhances ability to cope with stress - physical, emotional, and chemical.

• Supports joint flexibility and mobility.

• Supports positive kidney and liver function.

• Enhances energy levels.

Incredible Research

The antlers in deer and elk, along with other ruminants like moose and reindeer, can grow up to half a meter in one month. They are the only mammals that can completely regenerate an organ. These scientific facts have caused researchers to analyze the genes that are involved in antler cell growth. Chinese scientists have discovered that all the genes related to the growth process were genes related to cancer. These findings are interesting because these animals have documented cancer rates five times less than other mammals. These same genes that were responsible for the rapid cell creation were also able to suppress or stop the growth entirely; they do not grow unchecked but are part of the animal's highly-regulated system of genes, which both suppress and inhibit tumor growth. Implications from these studies could be substantial for future cancer research.

Also, studies of antlers have offered interesting approaches to tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. They have inspired commercially promising prostheses for amputees. Additionally, the animal's ability to grow bone with low tumor and infection rates could help in treatments of skeletal defects and other bone growth issues.

Deer Velvet vs. Elk Velvet

Elk Antler Velvet is significantly superior in quality to Deer Antler Velvet. Elk are much larger animals than deer and have larger antler racks. The larger the rack, the higher the quality, and the higher amount of active ingredients within it. Elk Antler is by far the largest and most potent.  Higher potency provides better quality and more bang for your buck.
