Common FAQs (Information from Deep Blue Health, the manufacturers of this product)
Deer Velvet - What is it?
Male deer or stags grow antlers which are deciduous, meaning that they fall off and re-grow each spring. Deer Velvet is the name given to the antlers during the early stages of growth, when the soft, cartilage-like tissue is covered with a furry coating.
How is Deer Velvet harvested?
New Zealand's positively regulated deer industry is trusted for its commitment to farming excellence with an emphasis on animal welfare and management, and the traceability and sustainability of its products. nzpurehealth ensures that our deer products are harvested under humane conditions to protect and promote animal well-being. The animal is given a small amount of local anaesthetic before the antlers (velvet) are removed by a trained professional. The animals are not harmed in any way infact early removal of the antlers prevents the injury of other animals suring the mating season when stags often compete for dominance.
What are the health benefits of Deer Velvet?
According to James Suttie, a researcher at AgResearch NZ, Deer Velvet is a body supporter. Probably because the established health benefits include improved circulation, immunity to cold and flu, joint health, relief from arthritis, accelerated injury recovery, treatment of anaemia, and general well-being. The prepared powder can be used by people of all ages and has few known adverse effects.
Does Deer Velvet improve sexual function?
Recommended for centuries by traditional Chinese health practitioners to enhance male strength, stamina and virility, this complex nutrient does indeed offer many health-giving properties. Naturally, this would produce the added benefit of improved sexual function provided there is no underlying health issue.
Extract Equivalent - what does this mean?
Extract equivalent is the ratio of raw to dried product, for example a 10:1 ratio means that 10g of raw product was used to produce 1g of product.
Freeze Drying - What is this?
Freeze-drying is a popular method used to dehydrate (remove water from) food and thereby preserve it. As the name suggests, the raw products are cooled to a point where the water molecules can be removed without damaging the cell structure or quality of the food. The taste, texture and nutritional content of the food are retained in the freeze-dried product. A freeze-dried substance can be stored at room temperature without refrigeration for an extended period of time.
