Q: Does the manufacturing process harm the deer?
A: No - the deer antlers are humanely harvested and the deer go back to romping in the field shortly after the process is complete. To ensure the humane treatment of deer, veterinarians have been appointed to supervise the velveting, with support from the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee. Under an agreed Code of Practice our farmers undergo a training program where they are assessed as being competent to velvet their own stags under the supervision of a vet. Veterinarians are legally responsible for the use of prescription drugs to provide adequate analgesia and may only prescribe them to deer farmers who have passed the necessary certiﬁcation.
Q: Why is VDA Pure better than other brands?
A: The way the antlers are processed breaks down the constituents into a highly absorbable form. This
is a proprietary process that our competitors do not use. Therefore, the antler is utilized better by the body
and becomes more effective for a given dose. Our PATENTED bio-active processing “NZ bio•active” allows optimal absorption.
