What about any side effects with Elk Velvet Antler?

​​
​​ ​​

When can I expect results with Country Gold Elk Velvet supplement?​​

    Like a lot of natural products EVA is cumulative. The positive effects develop over time. We would suggest trying for eight - twelve weeks to notice results and continuous usage is important ( * results may vary from person to person.)  All information on our website relates to Pure Antler Velvet in the capsule and bulk powder form.

​​

Can Country Gold be taken with other types of medication?


   We have not experienced or found any effects taken with other medication but it is always best to check with your health care provider.


What is the recommended dosage?


  A general Elk Velvet Antler dosage of 1-4 capsules per day is recommended. This is equivalent to 250 -2000 mg/day depending on the size of the Elk Velvet Antler capsule. 500-800 mg. of EVA per day is a normal recommendation. With our 280 mg. per capsule, most people are consuming 2-3 capsules per day taking all capsules first thing in the morning. Many people will take 3 capsules per day (loading phase) for the first 2 weeks and then adjust if needed.

 Within our 100g jars, the scoop holds approximately 250 mg. (just under one capsule)

 Velvet Antler consumption dates back 2000 years as an important tonic taken on it's own or in conjunction with other medicinal remedies. In Korea and China for example, a common dose  consists of 1200 mg/day of sliced dried Velvet Antler placed in boiling water producing a broth soup or tea. It is then filtered and consumed. Some Chinese remedies call for 3000-4500 mg/day Velvet Antler ground powder placed in boiling water and then consuming the liquid. Newer freeze drying processing have been able to protect more of the important nutrients found within Elk Velvet Antler.



​Does Elk Velvet Antler produce side effects?

The best part of pure natural Elk Velvet Antler is the fact that it does not produce side effects.Velvet Antler was first identified in Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) hundreds of years ago as a powerful health tonic prescribed for many illnesses of all ages. It is still prescribed in S. Korea and China for youth on their first birthday doctor visit to promote normal healthy growth. 

 Velvet Antler can be used long term by both men and women. One recent Canadian study consuming 25x the normal dosage still produced no toxic build up.. Another U.S. study mentioned that the only known side effect was a stomach ache when consumed at very high doses and symptoms disappeared when the dosage was lessened.

Is there a difference between Elk Velvet Antler capsules and Deer Antler Velvet Pills?


   Yes. Both Elk and Deer belong to the same cervid family. They both can produce the same outstanding health attributes. However, Canadian elk grow a much larger velvet antler producing a higher quality with active ingredients because of our 4 distinctive seasons in Saskatchewan and Alberta, Canada. Elk produce a top notch renewable resource every year.  


Do you use the whole Velvet Antler in the pills

Absolutely! Velvet Antler provides the greatest range of benefits when all of the components are combined to produce a multitude of biological activity because studies show that Chondroitin Sulfate is found evenly distributed throughout the entire antler. It appears that the sum composition of all of the active ingredients in whole antler out weigh the benefits of individual sections.

  Country Gold Elk Velvet Antler has approval from Health Canada with our natural health product licence number to promote some of the benefits of our EVA.

How do you get the Velvet Antler?
​ 
 Velvet Antler is a renewable resource. Elk and Deer grow identical antler formation every year. Each year the antlers fall off on their own and a new antler formation begins (like a new tooth pushing out the old). The Velvet Antler is removed before the antler calcifies and falls off. There is no harm to the animal and strict controls are in place. Elk and deer live a long life free of any of life's stresses on wide open pastures.

 Scientists continue to study the fast amazing regenerative abilities. Only a few varieties of mushrooms can grow faster! Velvet Antler contains stem cells and growth factors which somehow work in synergy together.


What is Elk Velveteen​?

 Elk Velveteen was a fictional brand name given in a popular A&E television series "Longmire" episode a little while back. We do get the odd enquiry about the TV drama, but there is no connection or relevance to our product.
