There are over 396 active ingredients naturally present in deer velvet that include a variety of proteins, lipids, minerals, trace elements, growth factors, growth hormones and glycosaminoglycans.

Proteins

The main structural part in cells that aid tissue growth and repair.

Amino Acids

Deer Velvet contains the 20 standard amino acids including eight essential amino acids that we cannot synthesize within the body and need to obtain from other sources. Amino Acids are the key building blocks of the body.

Collagen

Is the main protein of connective tissue within the body widely recognised for the promotion of healthily skin and hair. It is also the vital structural protein component of bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage, providing elasticity. Collagen provides the body with shock absorbing properties and is the major framework that holds the cells together. Collagen is required for the synthesis of joint cartilage and the repair of tissue damage.

Lipids

Essential for cell growth and energy storage. Lipids build cell components and boost energy levels to enhance cellular activities. Deer Velvet contains Essential Fatty Acids (EFAÕs) that cannot be constructed within the body so must be obtained externally. There are two families of EFAÕs, Omega -3 and Omega -6; both are contained in Mountain Red Deer Velvet.

Minerals/Trace Elements

Deer Velvet contains a variety of beneficial minerals and trace elements.

IGF 1 and IGF 2

Naturally occurring substances required for cellular growth and the regulation of a variety of cellular processes. Deer Velvet contains both IGF 1 and IGF 2. IGF 1 supports tissue growth, organ health, maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and has been shown to support muscle growth, the regeneration of nerve tissue and encourage the absorption of Chondroitin Sulphate and Glucosamine Sulphate. IGF 2 supports tissue growth and the development and function of the organs such as the brain, liver and kidney.

Glycosaminoglycans

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are combinations of proteins and sugars found in a variety of tissues, blood plasma, joints, and the mucosal (mucous membrane) lining of a variety of organs, including the gastrointestinal tract and the bladder.

Glucosamine

An amino sugar that occurs naturally in the body and is a major basic nutrient used in the production, maintenance and repair of joint structures including cartilage, bone, tendon, ligaments and joint fluids. It is also a component of synovial fluid, which lubricates and serves as a shock absorber for the joints. Glucosamine supports the repair of damaged cartilage, building new cartilage, cushioning joints, and joint mobility and flexibility.

Chondroitin

Extremely potent joint mobility agent. Chondroitin gives cartilage elasticity and helps prevent the destruction of cartilage by enzymes.

Prostaglandins

Are chemical regulators produced in all tissues that support nerve conduction and cellular health, and maintain tissues such as the lining of the stomach, supporting blood clotting and involved in the stimulation of cells into action.

Phospholipids

In order to repair the structural damage caused by free radicals, pathogens and toxins, your body requires a constant supply of phospholipids. Deer velvet supplements provide essential phospholipids not synthesised by the body.
