Harvested during the ‘velvet’ stage of growth, when the antler contains the most nutritional value.
Elk Velvet Antler is a safe, natural remedy that relieves joint pain and promotes bone, muscle and cartilage growth.
Male elk grow antler which is naturally shed each year in early spring. The next set of antler begins to grow immediately and is covered with soft, furry velvet. For use as a supplement the antler is humanely harvested while it is still growing and in the velvet stage, hence the name Elk Velvet Antler. It is NOT the outside velvet covering that is used in the product, but the inner cartilaginous matrix.
Antler is the world’s fastest growing mammalian tissue. A mature bull can grow 50lbs of antler in 90 days!
