Deer Velvet Spray

Deer velvet spray is an extract made from the soft, spring antlers of deer and elk. Deer antler is removed from farmed animals through a humane process in which the animal is sedated prior to harvesting. Deer antler has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries, but has recently gained popularity in the West due to its high concentration of a growth hormone called “insulin-like growth factor 1.” (IGF-1)

IGF-1 has been banned by the NFL and other professional sports organizations as a performance-enhancing drug, however the amount of IGF-1 which the body can utilize from deer velvet spray is debatable, and deer antler spray by itself is not a banned substance. If you play competitive sports, check with your sports organization before purchasing deer velvet spray and other similar supplements.

Although the amount of IGF-1 that can be absorbed from deer antler velvet spray is questionable, deer antler velvet also contains high concentrations of proteins, and beneficial minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, and sodium.
