Radiant Wonder Deer Antler Velvet is of the highest quality and is a powerful 50:1 extract.
Deer Antler Velvet has been used for thousands of years in Asia for its incredible healing power. Ancient Chinese scrolls report its value for at least 52 health conditions, including arthritis, anemia, headaches, sexual strength and fertility. It is very popular among those with bone issues, body builders and professional athletes. Research is underway to further substantiate these claims.
Modern research indicates that Deer Antler is anti-inflammatory, increases levels of anabolic hormones, strengthens the immune system, perhaps with anti-cancer effects.
Deer Antler Velvet has been approved by the FDA, in accordance with substantiating research, for the support of healthy joint structure and function. Velvet Deer Antler can now be claimed to be a reliable natural source for chrondroitin sulfate and collagen type II, used to strengthen bones.
Our Velvet Deer Antler is derived from the tips of the antlers, called the velvet because it is so soft, the most expensive and biologically active tissue. The tips are clipped from the deer, painlessly, without any harm to the deer, in the Spring when there is the most biological activity (testosterone is being generated because this is the mating season). Here is a fascinating video of how quickly the deer antler, once Spring comes again, regenerate. It is amazing. And another video to demonstrate the care of the deer and the strict laws which must be followed for the antler to be responsibly removed. This is how the deer are treated where we source our antler. Please note when seeing any pictures of deer and their cycles of recreating antler that you will see, at the end of the season, the velvet falling from the antler and looking bloody. That is completely natural. The deer has not been hurt.
We have just sourced an incredible deer antler which is a 50:1 extract. It is very powerful.

You may need to work closely with someone for a few weeks until the right dosage is determined.
You should also consult with someone if you are recovering from any surgery. Things as unrelated to each other as Assisted Reproductive Procedures (IVF, IUI), Cancer treatments, operations can all deplete Yin in the body.

It is best to source deer antler only from one of two countries: New Zealand or Siberia. Other sources of antler whether deer or elk, may have been contaminated. In New Zealand the herds are protected by strict government regulation. Siberia is very isolated.
Through Dr. Weil, Dr. Low Dog has reported that "a chronic wasting disease in deer, elk and moose is the only recognized prion (infectious protein) disease of wild animals and has been found in 15 states and two provinces in Canada. (Prion diseases in wild animals are similar to bovine spongiform encephalopathy, better known as mad cow disease, in cattle.) No known cases of neurological disease have been seen in humans who have taken deer antler velvet supplements, but a 2009 study sponsored by the National Institutes of Neurological Diseases and Stroke and the U.S. Department of Agriculture concluded that the possibility remains."
