HGH has long been a favorite hormone for athletes. Right now synthetic HGH is a controlled substance, available only by prescription, and only under a doctor's supervision because of some serious side-effects. It's almost always available only as an injectable compound and only under the close scrutiny of medical professionals.
Deer antler velvet however produces higher levels of HGH naturally, is available over-the-counter and has not been shown to have any adverse side effects or to be contraindicated for any disease or illness. HGH is the core-controlling hormone in the human body. It is responsible for the vitality, energy, youthful looks, resilience and beauty so many people crave. HGH hormones naturally and normally develop in the pituitary gland in the brain as we grow.
In healthy people they reach their peak during puberty and adolescence and begin to fall off after the age of 21. By the time most adults hit the age of 60 their HGH levels are only 20 percent of what they were when they were in their 20s. Once people turn 30 years old, the decline in HGH speeds up, falling 14 percent or more every decade.
The faster HGH decreases the faster we appear to age and the faster the aches, pains and downside of aging set in. Increasing HGH however can reverse aging and have a regenerative effect nothing else known to man has! No wonder people are looking for a fix, particularly a natural one with no side effects!
Deer antler velvet contains an "Insulin Like Growth Factor-1," or IGF-1. A single chain of IGF-1 consists of 70 amino acids. IGF-1 is found in deer antler velvet. It is an anabolic growth factor, meaning it stimulates new cell growth and cell regeneration in the body. Not only that, IGF-1 is recognized as being responsible for significant increases in lean muscle mass, decreased body fat, and improved healing and recovery times in those people who take it regularly. Increases in muscle strength, size, and efficiency are also attributed to IGF-1. Muscles tend to recover more quickly and return stronger and healthier when levels of IGF-1 are at their highest, but how does that happen? By taking deer antler velvet
The 'Roots' of Deer Antler Velvet
The cycle of annual antler regeneration in deer is a unique phenomenon among higher vertebrate animals. Although all mammals possess the ability to heal wounds, complete regeneration of an organ takes place in no other mammal.
This means that each year the entire structure (including all its supportive blood vessels, nerves, skin, hair and sebaceous glands) appears, grows very rapidly at up to 2 cm/day, and then calcifies.
After the support structures regress, and the skin peels off, a hard bone structure remains, which itself will subsequently be discarded by the stag and replaced.
So, velvet antler has some unique and interesting qualities, particularly its very fast growth rate and the fact it fully regenerates each year.
