deer antler velvet and pricing announcement
So Ray Lewis and Vijay Singh are both in the media regarding deer antler velvet (Lu Rong).
What is it …?
The use of deer antler velvet, called "Lu Rong", dates back to the Han Dynasty. The first documented medicinal use of velvet antler is from China's Hunan Province and appeared on a silk scroll dated 168 BC. Velvet Antler has been and still is an essential component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is arguably second only behind Ginseng in importance. It has been used in oriental medicine for over 2,000 years.
Deer antler velvet (Lu Rong) is a renewable resource that is harvested from deer without harm to the animal. Deer velvet antler received its name from the soft, fuzzy epidermis covering the inner structure of the growing bone and cartilage, which develops into hard antlers. These antlers are the fastest growing tissue in any mammal and can grow upwards of 1 inch per day. Deer antlers are the only mammalian bone structures to regenerate completely year after year. Every year deer grow antlers only to shed them and re-grow them the following year.
Deer antler velvet is a whole food derived from these fast growing antlers. In order to for these structured to grow so quickly and become such a hard material, the antlers must contain all the complementary amino acids, proteins, minerals, growth factors, and vitamins necessary for such astounding growth to occur. It is these rapid growth, strength, and regeneration properties which cause deer antler velvet to be such a nutritional powerhouse. Other than drying and powdering, it is not refined.
Some of deer antler velvet’s important nutritional components include:
