Antler Velvet Full Spectrum

 

Chinese Tonic for Vitality

Deer antler has been one of the most highly respected vitalizing tonics of Asia since the time of Confucius (551 B.C.) more than 2,000 years ago. Deer antler contains many organic compounds that are integral to the health of bone and tissue such as phospho- and glycolipids, collagen, and glycosaminoglycans. It also contains a growth factor (growth factor 1) which is an integral part of joints and skeletal tissues. Despite many requests for this product, Planetary Formulas did not develop it until we could guarantee a consistent high quality supply from a humane source. We were able to accomplish both. Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Antler Velvet is a unique combination of elk and deer antler velvet, harvested in a humane manner in accordance with the national standards established by the Game Industry Board, the New Zealand Veterinary Association, and the Animal Welfare Commission of New Zealand. Harvesting of the antler velvet is done under the care of certified handlers or veterinarians so the animals are subjected to the minimum amount of stress. Most importantly, the deer are not killed as is done by many other antler suppliers.

For more than 2,000 years, traditional Chinese herbalists have valued antler velvet—the early growth stage of deer antler, which regenerates naturally every year. This restorative tonic was traditionally renowned for its ability to promote balance, strength, and an overall feeling of well-being.


Now Planetary Formulas offers you Full Spectrum™ Antler Velvet, a combination of velvet from New Zealand elk and deer. Full Spectrum™ Antler Velvet is harvested humanely in accordance with the standards of national animal welfare and veterinary associations.


Traditional Asian Tonic

Unlike the horns of cattle or sheep, which grow throughout the life of the animal, the antlers of deer and elk are grown new every spring and then cast off. For thousands of years, traditional Asian herbalists have harvested antler growth in the early stage, before it hardens into bone.


Antler velvet, as this naturally regenerated, early-stage growth is known, has been prized in traditional Chinese herbalism, as well as in countries including Korea, Russia and Japan. Used predominantly as a vitalizing tonic, its traditional uses have also included reducing the negative effects of stress, improving mental function and improving circulation.


Humane Harvesting

Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum™ Antler Velvet utilizes deer and elk velvet from New Zealand. The velvet is specially harvested by a veterinarian or a trained and certified farmer, then frozen within three hours of removal until ready to be processed into tablets.Full Spectrum™ Antler Velvet is harvested approximately eight weeks after the antlers begin their growth cycle—the time when velvet contains the greatest amount of nutrients to support rapid growth. Antler removal is regulated under a code developed by the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee of New Zealand’s Ministry of Agriculture, in conjunction with specialist veterinarians, animal welfare organizations and animal behavior specialists. The National Velveting Standards Body audits animal welfare standards and ensures that analgesic removal methods are used so that the process is not painful to the animals. Most important, harvesting antler velvet preserves the herds, in contrast to the common practice of killing the animals for meat, hides or trophies.


Rich in Nutrients

At the time of harvesting, antler velvet is rich in nutrients. These include: the minerals calcium, nitrogen, magnesium, phosphorous, sulfur, sodium and potassium and the trace minerals iron, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium. In addition, antler velvet supplies growth factor 1, phospholipids, glycoplipids, collagen and small amounts of glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins, all of which support the skeletal system.


Combining Tradition and Modern Science

Like the rest of the Planetary Formulas herbal product line, Full Spectrum™ Antler Velvet combines the wisdom of traditional herbalism with the advances of modern technology. The result: supplements you can count on to deliver the benefits you are seeking from an herbal product.
