Male deer grow their antlers every year. While they are growing, the developing antlers are covered in a soft skin with short furry hair that resembles velvet in texture and hence the term 'velvet antler'. The process of annual regeneration is unique to deer.
Mountain Red sustainably harvests superior quality Deer Velvet from our New Zealand deer farms where the antlers are removed harmlessly under strict New Zealand Deer Industry Velvet Removal Programme standards. The antlers are harvested before the antler hardens into bone or deer horn as it is sometimes called, in order to protect the stags from each other. The Deer Velvet is then processed in government controlled licensed facilities to ensure a premium quality product.
The remarkable health promoting and rejuvenating properties of Deer Velvet or Velvet Antler have been prized in the Orient for over 2000 years. Today, Western clinical and scientific research into deer velvet is proving the validity of these traditional medicinal claims.
Extensive scientific analysis has shown that Deer Velvet contains over 396 active ingredients and is a rich source of essential minerals, vitamins, lipids, amino acids and growth factors such and IGF-1; all crucial for maintaining a healthy body, particularly as we grow older.
