Elk velvet antler (EVA) has been used in traditional Oriental medicine for centuries to promote joint health, mobility, energy, and muscle mass. A clinical study looked at the Effects of Elk Velvet Antler (EVA) Dietary Supplementation on Physical Growth and Bone Development in Growing Rats was designed to look at the effect on bone development to investigate the benefits of EVA on bone density. In brief, the study showed that body weight and growth of femoral bones showed a marked increase in the active group that were taking EVA. The activity of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) increased in the EVA dosed group and because ALP is expressed in cells of mineralized tissue and plays a critical function in the formation of hard tissue the Principle Investigators of the study concluded dietary supplementation of EVA was effective on growth and bone development in this clinical trial model.
