Recent studies demonstrate the various pharmacological effects and bioactive components that antlers provide to promote health. The study of these bioactive components in antlers, in recent years, have become very important in animal medicines. Animal medicine, such as the velvet antler, have been used over 2,000 years, enhancing various of health functions (Sui,2014).
Antlers grow at a very rapid speed, giving you and your companion a maximum rate of many pharmacological effects such as improved immune system, physical strength, and sexual function(Sui,2014).
Increasing awareness of these functions will guide us to understand the bioactive components of velvet antlers and will make it easier for us to explain the benefits of our all-natural Brush Creek Canine Supplement line.
New active factors, found through an in-depth study on white-tailed deer, red deer and sika deer have been studied (Sui,2014). Velvet antlers are rich in 19 amino acids. The distribution of growth factors such as collagen, have been calculated to increase downward from the top section of an antler. Meanwhile, the greatest number of phospholipids and polyunsaturated fatty acids were most intense in the soft growth period of the antlers (Sui,2014). Pharmacological studies with these natural products have demonstrated that antlers possess multi-functions, such as immunomodulatory, anti-cancer, anti- fatigue, anti-osteoporosis, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidation, wound healing and regeneration promoting behaviors (Sui,2014).
