"I am a 66 year old woman and take some powerful medications to keep the three types of arthritis I am troubled with under control. For over a year, I have been taking four of your velvet antler capsules daily in addition to my arthritis medications without any interactions. I have noticed that since taking the velvet antler I have been able to withstand longer period s in-between taking my scheduled meds. Because of velvet antler, I can definitely say I have more energy than ever before. " Jackie Bruckbauer , Madison , WI
I have severe arthritis in my hands. My friend, Ceil Stamm, told me about the product. She has arthritis in her hands and is a quilter. She took elk antler velvet - the arthritis stopped progressing as far as the aches and growths. I started using it - felt a definite difference. I ran out of product - didn't refill it for 2 months - and immediately the aches and growth resumed. I just received another supply and can feel the difference in my hands already. Kathy Larson, Age 60, Wautoma, WI
"I take many supplements and the benefits of some of them do overlap. However, I have observed some effects from the antler that I feel confident are traceable right to the antler. I was introduced to the benefits of antler in a conversation in 2005 with Dr. Eugene Shippen, author of the book The Testosterone Syndrome. He originally recommended antler as a supplement that could help my knee, where I have had some chronic meniscus problems. I do feel that antler helps my knee because it is so rich in growth factors. However, where I perceive a very clear effect is in energy level, vitality and exercise recovery. I am able to take it and feel an effect in very short order. I also feel that antler has a very noticeable effect on sexual energy and drive. It may give a hormonal boost. I take at least a teaspoon per day, sometimes more if I'm tired. As you know, I have introduced antler to my family and give it to my dogs also. In conclusion, I take many supplements and am always looking for ways to use nutrition to help me feel young and stay active. I'm 57, play racquetball 4 times per week, hike 2 miles per day and enjoy weight training. Among my supplements, elk antler has been the one I've used most consistently and that's why I buy it by the kilo. Thanks for being a dependable supplier of a high quality product" Sincerely, Darrell Kay
I first started taking velvet antler after speaking with Diana Susen about my training for my first triathlon. Once she new of my task at hand, she suggested taking velvet antler to see how it would help my training. Within days of starting it, I noticed a nice increase in my metabolism. The aching I was starting to have in my knees stopped and they have not bothered me since. My training went well and I have since completed my triathlon-bringing home a third place finish! My times for each of the three events I would be doing had decreased nicely. I had a 15 mile bike ride to do during the triathlon and I had tried feverishly to get my time for that under an hour. I had no luck. After about a week on the velvet antler, my time had dropped from my fastest being 1 hour and 2 minutes down to 54 minutes! My running was more comfortable, my swimming was smooth, it all came together. Now that the triathlon is over, I have done other events, one being a duathlon in Green Bay. That is a 3 mile run/32 mile bike/1 mile run. I also did well with that even though I was suffering from a bad cold. The velvet antler gives me an all day "comfort and ease" feeling. I do not get any "up" and "down" moments like slamming a red bull would do. It's a great product and I will continue on it as long as I am here! I look forward to next year and all the events I have planned. More triathlons for sure! I also have my big goal of doing my first half-marathon run on May 17th, 2009!

Your velvet antler is some amazing stuff. As the owner of my own business specializing in Active Relief Techniques (ART), I put in long hours helping my clients feel better, and at the end of the day, I feel the affects. Since I have been taking your elk velvet antler, I have found relief for my achy hands. I also started giving my fifteen year old dog the capsules. Although she has some structural problems, she must be having some relief as well, as since she’s been on the velvet antler; I noticed a spark in her attitude. I’ve already told my clients about how your product has helped us, and now they too are taking your velvet antler. Gene Berry,
"I have tried Chiropractic Glucosomine and acupuncture over a period of two years. My ongoing back-aches, knee and hip problems always seemed to be there. Although my symptoms are not completely gone I have found more strength and relief in my joints than I have felt in a very long time. I've been taking three capsules of your Meadow Creek velvet antler for approximately one month; also noticed my fingernails have never been able to grow to any length with breaking; now I can actually file them. Lastly, my hair dresser also noticed a difference in my hair, being somewhat fuller and easier to style. If this is what happens within a month, I can't wait to see my in a year.: Lana Kohler, WI
" I am an RN at Froedtert Hospital, I was diagnosed many years ago with an unspecified connective tissue disorder (it has stumped the physicians), but has taken its toll on all of my joints. I would usually take 12-16 Advil a day to help with the inflammation and pain. Since starting on Velvet Antler in 9/2009, I have been able to start exercising daily (walking 3 miles)
N.C. from San Diego, California - "Thank you for sending the velvet antler so quickly. I am giving this to my son who has had a drug problem since high school with speed. The re-hab clinic has helped, but not as much as the way he feels taking velvet antler. It gives him energy and it overcomes depression. It is truly a remarkable product."
