Deer Antler Velvet and Sexual Function

Deer Antler Velvet and Sexual Function

One of the most common uses of deer antler velvet is to improve sexual function. Evidence shows that supplementation with deer antler velvet positively influences sexual behaviour. The intake of deer antler velvet increases the number of mounts and intromissions prior to the ejaculation and shortens the latency. Studies have confirmed that shorter latency of mount and intromission was strongly correlated with higher sexual desire. These findings show that deer antler velvet has a favourable influence on sexual function through multiple mechanisms, according to a study carried out by scientists from China.

Scientists also discovered that regular intake of antler velvet increased the weight of testis, thus showing the ingredient strengthens their function. Moreover, the same research also found that antler velvet supports the production of the hormone testosterone[1]. This is particularly important if we bear in mind that testosterone has a big impact on sexual health and performance.

Better libido
Deer antler velvet has the ability to regulate your hormones, as seen above. A person’s sex drive is largely governed by the hormone testosterone. Studies show that men with low testosterone tend to have weaker libido[2] than their counterparts with healthy levels of this much-needed hormone. Men are not the only ones whose sexual desire is influenced by testosterone. Evidence shows that testosterone plays a big role in female libido and wellbeing[3]. Also, a study from the Archives of Sexual Behaviour found that men tend to have a higher libido than women, testosterone has an impact on sex drive in ladies and it is associated with masturbation frequency[4].

Stronger erections
A man’s sexual prowess requires strong, hard erections. Erectile dysfunction is a common problem and it affects most men at one point or another. While experiencing difficulties to achieve or maintain an erection can be frustrating, there’s a way to overcome this problem and deer antler velvet is a practical solution. Evidence shows that erectile dysfunction is greatly influenced by low testosterone[5]. Deer antler velvet improves your testosterone levels thus helping you get stronger erections.
