Health Information

New Zealand Deer Velvet

Pure Vitality's Deer Farm uses only its own velvet or velvet bought from herds that have been approved of by the New Zealand Game Board for their very high animal welfare standards. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, deer antler velvet is second only to ginseng in the group of "Imperial" herbs. Now, nature's only renewable source of cartilage, with its amazing array of benefits, is becoming more widely available.

Antler velvet is known as an adaptogen, a natural substance that has the ability to normalise an organism's biological activity if it is out of balance. This enhances the organism's ability to adapt to, and resist, stress, diseases, degeneration and toxins, and external influences that can cause major problems to our well being. In traditional Chinese medicine, deer antler velvet was viewed as a powerful restorer and maintainer of health rather than as a cure for disease. It strengthens and protects the body instead of acting as an agent to fight pathogens and infection. Velvet builds the body's health by improving the quality of the blood.

The generic term "deer velvet" is given to the growing antlers of male deer before they harden into weapons of protection and aggression. The antler is removed painlessly at its half-grown stage in accordance with guidelines from the New Zealand Animal Welfare Council and the New Zealand Veterinarian Authority. Scientific research into the active ingredients of deer velvet has yielded an amazing collection of compounds. Harvested as living tissue on its way to becoming bone, deer velvet contains at least 12 minerals and elements, as well as other compounds and nutrients vital to good health. Unlike man-made drugs, deer velvet has no known toxicity with any medicines, and no known adverse side effects. 

Is Deer Velvet a Scientifically Proven Product?

Yes it is. An increasing list of positive scientific results are joining the decades of research carried out in Russia, Korea, China, Japan, and more recently New Zealand. This research has given credibility to deer velvet’s traditional usage and validated recommendations for its inclusion as an every day health supplement. In 1999 in compliance with USFDA regulations, research and clinical studies substantiated that Deer Velvet 'supports healthy joint structure and function'. 

Scientific research on deer velvet began in Russia in the 1930’s. The Russian scientists made a product from deer velvet called Pantocrine. This was an alcohol extract of velvet. In an extensive series of studies over a period of 50 years until the 1980’s, the Russians systematically recorded the beneficial effects of Pantocrine and developed some ideas as to why it was successful.

The Russians believe that deer velvet is a true tonic capable of stimulating the body in a number of ways. For example, their research shows that the running performance of athletes improves after taking Pantocrine, and that the stamina of experimental animals improves. Their results show that deer velvet is useful to support wound healing after surgery and could aid in the recovery of trauma patients.

In New Zealand research has in a short time been able to drastically improve our scientific understanding of deer velvet. The New Zealand research has shown New Zealand Deer Velvet can stimulate the immune system, and have a positive effect on those involved in physical training. It is an exciting field of research and new findings are becoming available at frequent intervals.
