Velvet antler has been considered a nutritional tonic ingredient and has been widely used in traditional chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years. Traditionally, in asia, the antler is dried and sold as slices. Then, the tea was prepared by boiling slices in water, usually with other herbs and ingredients.
This tea has long been used to:
– modulate the immune system
– increase blood production in anemia
– improve blood circulation
– improve muscle strength and mental alertness
– treat infertility in women
deer velvet antler can be divided into sections, each with unique medical purposes in traditional Chinese medicine. The upper section called a wax piece, is used as a growth tonic for children. The middle section, called a blood piece, is used to treat adults with arthritis and related disorders. The bottom section, called a bone piece, is used for calcium deficiency and geriatric therapies. The tip is the most expensive and sought-after part of the antler.
Is it safe? Is it free of CWD?
chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a progressive, fatal, degenerative disease of the brain affecting elk, mule deer and white-tailed deer.
CWD belongs to a group of related diseases called transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), which include scrapie in sheep and goats, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in cattle and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) in humans. CWD is not the same as BSE.
TSES are caused by abnormal proteins, called prions, which accumulate in the brain. There is currently no treatment or vaccine available.
Alberta initiated a voluntary CWD surveillance program in October 1996. In august 2002, Alberta’s mandatory CWD surveillance program was implemented.
Nutridom Canadian velvet elk antler is harvested from a registered Alberta elk farm. Over 45,000 farmed and wild cervids in Alberta undergo monthly CWD testing since 1996. These data, along with the guidelines for elk antler harvesting by the veterinarian association and CFIA regulation are available for the public on the chief provincial veterinarian websites.
