What's In Velvet Deer Antler?
Velvet Deer Antler is composed of the following:
Insulin-like growth factors (IGF-1, 2) - precursors for the growth hormone production, promotes muscle growth, tissue growth and organ health.
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) - protein that stimulates cell growth to produce collagen, for cell renewal and wound healing.
Collagen - a structural protein present in bone, tendons, ligaments, other connective tissue and articular cartilage.
Amino acids are precursors for all protein production, aids tissue growth, muscle recovery and repair.
Glucosamine sulphate - builds, maintains and repairs joint structures including bone, cartilage, ligaments, joint fluids and tendons.
Chondroitin sulphate - helps protect and rebuild degenerating cartilage, gives cartilage elasticity, an anti-inflammatory agent.
Hyaluronic acid - a substance that binds cartilage cells together and lubricates joints.
Phospholipids - builds cell components and enhances cellular activities, repairs structural damage caused by free radicals, pathogens and toxins.
Glycosphingolipids - compounds involved with growth and metabolism of cells and with memory and learning.
Prostaglandins - regulates contraction and relaxation of muscles, regulates inflammatory mediation.
Calcium - builds and maintains bones, teeth and nerves, important for muscle contraction, nerve transmission, blood pressure and blood clotting.
Phosphorus - a key component of metabolic reactions, provides structure for bones and teeth, important for function of heart and kidney.
Potassium - essential for electrolyte balance and also muscle and nerve function.
Sodium - allows the body to maintain normal fluid balance and electrolytes.
Magnesium - helps cells restore and release energy for regular muscle and nerve function.
Selenium - powerful antioxidant that reduces infections, protects blood cells, the heart, liver and lungs.
Sulphur - element of insulin and various amino acids, protects body against toxins.
Zinc - a component of more than 90 enzymes necessary for healthy skin, growth and the healing of wounds.
Copper - essential for formation of red blood cells, energy making, bone and connective tissues.
Iron - essential in the blood cells transporting oxygen through the body.
Cobalt - Used for anemia and stimulating new red blood cells. Required in the synthesis of vitamin B12.
Monoamine- oxidase inhibitors - an enzyme that inhibits the oxidation of neurotransmitters, improves mood and feeling of well-being.
Erythropoietin - a hormone produced by specialized kidney cells to stimulate red blood cell production.
