What does Deer Antler Velvet Growth mean?

Deer antler grows at incredible speed and, after several weeks, as the velvet reaches the final size, the cartilage within them gradually converts into bone. In this final process, the antler’s blood supply and nerves are lost. When the antlers have fully hardened, the stags rub them against trees or rocks to remove the skin that remains. As a result of this rubbing, the deer develop sharp bony weapons for combat against threats to their harem of females during the autumn rut or mating season.

Each spring the velvet antler cycle begins new and the skin around the pedicle expands and grows, initiating new velvet antler growth. The hard antler from the previous season is cast off and the growth of the new season’s velvet crop begins. It is then that the velvet is harvested for its medicinal and performance qualities.

Is Deer Antler Velvet safe to take?
Yes! One example of a study on safety was commissioned by the University of Otago in New Zealand and overseen by Dr. James M. Suttie, a world recognised leader in velvet research. The studies were carried out according to OECD standards. The studies showed that after 90 days of supplementation with velvet antler, the subjects were showing no unusual signs or symptoms and the doses of antler velvet evaluated in the trial were far greater than any doses of velvet antler commonly used by humans.

How is NutriNZ Premium Grade New Zealand Deer Antler Velvet collected?
Humanely and ethically collected whilst the deer is alive, under local anaesthetics and under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. It is a quick and painless procedure that does not harm the deer. Following the procedure, the deer is released back into the herd.

It is also important to note that antler removal is required on most deer farm as antlered deer are considered a danger to the herd. So even deer farms that do not produce deer antler velvet practice this procedure.

A great deal of research has been conducted in the last 70 years. In New Zealand in particular, most research has been carried out by AgResearch by a team led by Dr J M Suttie.

“In New Zealand, where the standards of deer farming rank among the best in the world, deer velvet has great potential as a dietary supplement that can be used to complement conventional Western therapies.” S R Haines and J M Suttie. Deer Velvet Technical manual Version 6.3 (July, 2009), Scientific Information Relating to Use of Deer Velvet as a Dietary Supplement.  Deer Industry New Zealand. Pg 11-13.
