Meadow Creek Elk Farms offers premium quality velvet antler SPECIFICATIONS:

Capsule size:  250 mg. Bottle size: 90 capsules per bottle

Contents: 100%  whole beam  elk velvet antler dried, processed, tested and encapsulated

 

Consists of 100% elk velvet antler harvested at the "velvet stage." Velvet is the name given to antlers while they are growing and still in a cartilaginous state. During this stage the antler is rich with nutrients. Velvet Antler is classified as dietary supplement, known as a multi-nutritional supplement for promoting endurance, stamina, and strength, for resisting the symptoms of stress and fatigue and for providing nutritional support for joint structure and function. The elk velvet antler used in Meadow Creek Elk Farms, LLC(MCEF) is dried, processed, microbiologically tested and encapsulated in 250 mg capsules, and bottled 90 capsules per bottle.

On our farms in Wisconsin, we raise high genetic bulls, who have a record of producing premium quality antlers. The elk are pastured on alfalfa fields and supplemented with a mixture of grains and minerals with no artificial additives.

  • The antlers are harvested annually, under tight guidelines outlined by the North American Elk Breeders Association, using no drugs, and causing no harm or stress to the elk.
  • The complete antler is dried and processed in an antler drying facility, one designed after the original Korean methods of drying. Traditional Korean method of drying consists of drying the antler very slow, at a very low temperature, using consistent use of fans, much like the convention oven of today.
  • The ground antler is then micro biologically tested (bacterial analysis-standard plate count).
  • Encapsulation is done in a FDA inspected lab that operates according to strict Good Manufacturing Procedures (GMP).
  • Each Capsule contains 250 mg. of 100% elk antler, using no additives or fillers.
