Scientific Research

Scientific research on deer velvet began in Russia in the 1930’s by scientists – in particular, an extract of deer velvet called pantocrine. After extensive studies the Russians systematically recorded the beneficial effects of Pantocrine and concluded that deer velvet is a true tonic capable of stimulating the body in a number of ways.

Ongoing clinical research proves deer velvet’s healing properties

More recently, clinical research has taken place in China, Korea, New Zealand and the US. From deer velvet, the Chinese have developed anti-inflammatory treatments and specific medicines for a range of uses including bone fracture repair and ulcer healing. These are used successfully in Chinese traditional medicine hospitals.

Chinese research has also shown that deer velvet improves immune and memory functions, increases endurance and beneficially influences blood pressure.

Korean scientists have shown that deer velvet can improve anaemia, treat whiplash injuries, improve stamina, help treat osteoporosis, and may aid in recovery from severe medical trauma.

Leading New Zealand research into deer velvet

New Zealand research has been able to drastically improve our scientific understanding of deer velvet and has also clarified the importance of deer velvet in aiding mobility, stimulating the immune system, and improving athletic performance – these results have also been mirrored in the USA research.
