When it comes to health and fit­ness, ev­ery­one is look­ing for that magic bul­let – that one in­gre­di­ent that can work to push users through plateaus, and al­low for pre­vi­ously unimag­ined lev­els of phys­i­cal and mental per­for­mance. In re­sponse to this con­sumer de­mand, the supplement in­dus­try is loaded with more than it’s fair share of “quick fix” so­lu­tions that prom­ise “cure all” ef­fects while sel­dom de­liv­er­ing on their prom­ises. Luck­ily, ev­ery now and again an in­gre­di­ent makes it’s way from the time-tested tra­di­tions of eclec­tic cul­tures around the world into the med­i­cal and supplement in­dus­tries. Rare in­gre­di­ents whose tra­di­tional uses, though un­con­ven­tional, are just as rel­e­vant to the ben­e­fit of mod­ern fit­ness con­sumers as they are to the an­cient peo­ples who pi­o­neered their ap­pli­ca­tions – such is the case with Deer Antler Ex­tract. Deer Antler is a rare in­gre­di­ent that acts as a magic bul­let – ef­fec­tively pro­vid­ing sev­eral ben­e­fits to ath­letes.


Also known deer antler vel­vet, this rare and unique anabolic in­gre­di­ent is har­vested from the antlers of deer, elk, cari­bou, and moose! It is the soft, vel­vety sub­stance that coats the antlers dur­ing pre­cal­ci­fied growth phases. Deer antlers can shed and re­grow ev­ery year, and the vel­vet is most abun­dant dur­ing the an­i­mal’s prime growth phases, thus catch­ing the in­ter­est of sci­en­tists by demon­strat­ing how the vel­vet has some­thing to do with growth and life. The best part is that there is no harm to the an­i­mals be­cause the vel­vet is har­vested be­fore the antlers so­lid­ify into solid bone. Deer antler ex­tract is rich in cal­cium, mag­ne­sium, zinc, a full amino acid pro­file, prostaglandins, glu­cosamine, chon­droitin, col­la­gen, and even IGF-1.


The first recorded uses of deer antler vel­vet were found in scrolls that were un­cov­ered in China dur­ing the Han Dynasty. It has been doc­u­mented as a key in­gre­di­ent used in Tra­di­tional Chi­nese Medicine for over 2000 years! In fact, an es­sen­tial med­i­cal doc­u­ment known as the Pen Ts’ao Kang Mu in­cludes var­i­ous means of pre­par­ing deer antler vel­vet – pow­ders, oint­ments, cap­sules, ex­tracts, teas, tinc­tures, and pastes. It was tra­di­tion­ally used to treat, “yang de­fi­cien­cies”. These are re­lated to weak­ened im­mune sys­tem, poor cir­cu­la­tion, kid­ney prob­lems, poor di­ges­tion, and even week pulse. More re­cently it is used in tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine as a growth tonic for chil­dren with stunted growth. It is also used for bone and joint health, as well as count­less other geri­atric ther­a­pies.


Deer antler ex­tract is ex­tremely unique in the sense that it is com­posed of a mul­ti­tude of sub-in­gre­di­ents, which are each ben­e­fi­cial in sup­port­ing the body to in­crease well-be­ing and boost per­for­mance. These nu­tri­ents are so di­verse that Deer antler has many ap­pli­ca­tions, both in­side, and out­side of the body­build­ing and nu­tri­tion realm.

In ad­di­tion to sup­port­ing mus­cle pro­tein syn­the­sis via IGF-1, deer antler’s huge range of com­po­nents helps pro­vide ath­letes with a va­ri­ety of ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties that heighten per­for­mance such as: • Reg­u­lat­ing metabolism

• In­creas­ing pro­tein syn­the­sis

• Boost­ing strength

• Boost­ing li­bido

• Im­prov­ing blood pres­sure

• Strength­en­ing joints

• Re­pair­ing, grow­ing, and strength­en­ing car­ti­lage • Speed­ing up mus­cle growth and re­pair • Boost­ing the im­mune sys­tem


Deer antler ex­tract has a deep-rooted his­tory in Tra­di­tional Chi­nese Medicine prac­tices as a “shot­gun” rem­edy that can af­fect mul­ti­ple bi­o­log­i­cal pro­cesses. Due to this in­flu­ence, the body­build­ing and fit­ness in­dus­try has re­cently be­come very in­ter­ested in its unique prop­er­ties that work on pre­cise ar­eas of the body and trans­late into op­ti­mized per­for­mance. Ath­letes place a very hefty de­mand on their bones, joints, mus­cles, car­ti­lage, heart, and brain – so the fact that deer antler ex­tract can ben­e­fit all of these to some ca­pac­ity, makes it a very use­ful in­gre­di­ent for ath­letes to add to their supplement reg­i­men.

The ac­tive dose to reap such ben­e­fits is ap­prox­i­mately 450mg per day in a 4:1 po­tency ra­tio – like the dosage in Nutrabolics’ Ag­gro. Deer antler is one of the most pow­er­ful and use­ful body­build­ing in­gre­di­ents known to man. It reg­u­lates the metabolism, op­ti­mize im­mune func­tion, in­crease pro­tein syn­the­sis, boost strength, speed mus­cle growth and re­pair, and strengthen car­ti­lage, bones, and joints. It is truly the, “magic bul­let” that can sky­rocket health and ath­letic per­for­mance to unimag­in­able lev­els!
