Does Elk Velvet Antler help athletes?​​

 Elk Velvet Antler supplements have been around for hundreds of years being first identified for developing strong bones, tendons, muscle strength, and overall wellness. 

 Russian weightlifters first used Velvet Antler in the 1960's with great results breaking Olympic records while building up muscle mass and enhancing recovery rates. Since then improvements  to Velvet Antler's efficacy have also been introduced with freeze drying of the Deer Antler Velvet to maintain the maximum nutrients showing the greatest benefit. 

Now, people use Deer Antler pills and powder to

Decrease body fat
Build up Endurance
Improve Metabolism
Increase Muscle Strength


Velvet Antler and high profile athletes
​​
 In 2000 #1 world ranked 
Triathlete Hamish Carter  from New Zealand and 7 fellow athletes all using Velvet Antler participate in the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Carter "is convinced this dietary supplement adds to his own huge training efforts by assisting with his strength and endurance, and providing him faster recovery after training."

 
Glen Thompson  (1998 Commonwealth cycling champion) also reported  that "velvet was a key ingredient in my recovery and within 2 months I was back on my bike and training for the Sydney 2000 Olympics.”

 In 2013 football Pro Bowl and
Superbowl champion Ray Lewis  came under fire for allegedly using Deer Antler Velvet to help speed up recovery of a tendon injury.

 That same year
pro golfer Vijay Singh  announced that he had used Velvet Antler for years and was unaware that the  nutritional supplement sold in Health stores might be banned.

 Longtime Kiwi
gold legend Sir Bob Charles  has been a long time (20 year) user of Deer Antler capsules for "supporting healthy joint function."  Not looking to be part of a possible scandal he too pulled back  looking for clarity.

 With the
legality of Deer Antler Velvet coming into question, in 2014, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) clarified their stance announcing that Velvet Antler is an All-Natural legal substance
