Researchers have released their studies on velvet antler and its positive effects on arthritis. Long known in ancient Chinese cultures as an effective aphrodisiac, velvet antler is now finding a wider application in the healing field. Reports from China, Korea, Japan and Russian show this healing substance is being used for strengthening muscle contractions, improving nerve impulses, regulating blood pressure and for helping people who suffer from arthritis. Alison Davison in her new book, Velvet Antler reveals that “not only is it regarded as a powerful rejuvenating tonic, it also boosts physical stamina and mental power, builds the blood, normalizes blood pressure, improves liver and kidney function and helps prevent aging.

In 1994, Z.Q. Zhang published evidence that velvet antler has strong anti-inflammatory tendencies, without the negative side effects of traditional anti-arthritis medicine. German research has also supported that key components such as glucosamine sulfate, glucuronic acid, and glycosarninoglycan in velvet antler have an anti-inflammatory effect on cartilage and body tissue. Recently, research has established that the high levels of chondroitin sulfate found in antler velvet, acts like a liquid magnet attracting fluid into the proteoglycan molecules to ultimately help support human and animal cartilage. Without this fluid, cartilage becomes malnourished, drier and more fragile. Velvet antlers health benefit claims relating to osteo-arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can be substantiated based upon the appropriate scientific studies made in compliance with FDA regulations.

This supplement is finding enormous use as an anti-aging elixir. ”Velvet elk antler, the aphrodisiac of Asian rulers, not only provided them with greater sexual powers, it also helped them live healthier and longer lives than the people they ruled,” says Earl Mindell, R.Ph,Ph.D. in the Journal of Longevity Research. Laboratory analysis now show that antler velvet contains an amazingly comprehensive nutritional profile including collagen, amino acids, essential fatty acids, minerals, trace minerals and other functional proteins, all vital components for human metabolic function. Nina Anderson, author of The Secrets of Staying Young, mentions that “during growth, the antler blood contains high levels of natural hormones and the tips of the spikes contain the most potent rejuvenation nutrients. These contribute to its anti-aging properties.”

Velvet antlers contain both the male and female hormone precursors including testosterone, which stimulates growth and sexual potency in both men and women.  In the book, Natural Solutions for Sexual Enhancement states, “Chinese doctors have used antler velvets for male incontinence and prostate problems for thousands of years. They also treat frigidity, low libido and infertility with this magical substance. As a treatment for sexual dysfunction, it extremely effective in a majority of cases.”

Velvet antler is a renewable resource, that if harvested properly does not have to harm the deer or cause stress to the animal. It is important that antler velvet only be harvested in the early summer months when the antler has grown three or four velvet-covered spikes. This is necessary because the beneficial nutrients are at their maximum potency at that time. Velvet antler will soon become the best known supplement for anti-aging prevention.
