What does Elk Velvet Antler Contain?


With all the natural remedies out there for a variety of health conditions, it can be overwhelming to select and decide on a treatment or supplement that is best for you.  Natural supplements, in lieu of prescription medications, have grown in popularity and it seems everyone is looking for relief with a lower risk of undesirable side effects.  And who can blame them?
Elk Velvet has been used as an organic dietary supplement for thousands of years to treat a variety of health and wellness concerns. Antlers used in the composition of supplements should not be confused with horns.  Unlike horns, elk antlers are shed naturally and are regrown each year.  These antlers are composed of cartilage initially and, after several months of growth, the cartilage turns to bone.  The antler is harvested, and used for supplements, just as the antler begins to turn to bone; this process causes no injury to the elk.   Interested in learning more about elk velvet antler supplements?  We’ll discuss what these popular supplements contain and why each component is important:
