Deer Antler IGF-1
Deer Antler IGF-1 is a
safe and effective oral supplement shown to help with the body's levels of IGF-1
naturally. For centuries, ancient Chinese medicine used the power of deer
antler velvet to improve vitality and overall function. Unbeknownst to them, the
deer antler velvet they were taking was loaded with IGF-1 and other important
In recent studies, deer antler velvet has
been found to be a rich source of insulin-like growth factors (IGF-1). By
taking our Deer Antler IGF-1, you are increasing your body's levels of IGF-1
slowly and naturally, not bombarding your system, resulting in improved muscle
repair, better joint health and overall well-being. As an athlete, this means
quicker recovery from the intensive training sessions, less joint pain and a
strengthened immune system and so much more. Several studies have shown when
taken over time:*
- Increase Lean
- Reduce Body Fat %

- Testosterone Booster - Naturally & Safely*
As we age, the body secretes less HGH, and
therefore, less IGF-1. By the time a person reaches 60 years of age, their body
may produce only 25% of the HGH levels produced during adolescence. Scientists
believe that this reduction in HGH and IGF-1 production as we age is associate
with many age-related declines in the human body, such as graying hair,
wrinkled skin, loss of sexual desire and function, decreased energy, and
increased body fat. IGF-1 is also known as Somatomedin C.*
builders, athletes, and those who are just generally interested in their health
and well-being have recently discovered deer antler velvet spray. This
supplement contains IGF-1 and many amino acids, all of which enhance your
health. IGF-1, or Insulin-like Growth Factor -1, is a hormone that boosts the
effectiveness and abilities of the natural Human Growth Hormone (HGH) produced
in your body.
levels decline with age, as do IGF-1 levels. However, deer antler velvet has
been shown to contain high levels of this hormone, and when used properly, has
shown in some cases to double the amount in your system, effectively making
your own HGH levels supercharged.
What is Deer Antler Velvet?
antler velvet is the soft velvet that forms on the outside of antlers as they
grow each year. Many people do not realize that this velvet is what actually
allows the antlers to grow. Antlers grow at exponential rates each year during
a three month season. After that, the antlers calcify and fall off of the deer
or elk. This process happens each year, and the only scientific reason that
explains the rapid growth is the velvet.
antler velvet is harvested in a farm-like setting. No harm, injury or pain
comes to the animals. In fact, most of the antlers are removed only a short
time before they would fall off naturally. Once harvested, the velvet is
carefully processed under strict guidelines. This helps to retain as much of
the cell-boosting properties in it as possible.
of The Most Important Benefits Of Deer Antler Velvet
the most important benefit of deer antler velvet is that it is non-toxic. Many
supplements can build up in your system over time and become toxic. This is
because they do not completely metabolize in your system. When this occurs, the
body can have adverse reactions. There are many supplements that state you must
only take in intervals of 30 to 60 days and then take 30 to 60 days off. This
allows the supplement to process through the system completely before beginning
a new regiment.*
antler spray does not build up in the system at all. Because of its
construction of important amino acids and IGF-1, the supplement is processed as
soon as it is ingested and is completely processed through the body. Studies
conducted in New Zealand show that after 90 days of continual use, test
subjects still did not show any type of buildup of this product in their
that you can reap the many benefits of deer antler spray without having to
worry about your body becoming toxic is the best benefit that the product offers.
Antler and Body Building:
antler velvet contains a strong mixture of essential amino acids and IGF-1.
IGF-1, or Insulin-like Growth Factor-1, is a growth hormone that is naturally
produced in the body and works in conjunction with human growth hormone. As
people age, the production of this hormone decreases.*
reintroducing IGF-1 into the system, cells can easily start to build, creating
lean muscle mass and helping the body to burn off unwanted fat. Because IGF-1
is based in insulin, the effects are felt and seen throughout the body.*
Body Mass, Healing Properties, Muscle Building*
builders have discovered that deer antler velvet not only helps them eliminate
unwanted body fat, but it also helps build mass in their muscles. Many body
builders get to the point where they cannot seem to build or define their
muscles any more, regardless of what they try. This plateau can be very
antler velvet, however, helps body builders surpass this plateau by increasing
their natural IGF-1 levels. Muscle mass can then begin to increase and become
better defined again.*

is some press on Deer Antler Spray:
Deer antler velvet is seen as a possible steroid alternative because it includes something call insulin-like growth factor or IGF-1, which is said to regulate human growth hormone in the body.
“The benefits of deer antler – or more
specifically the substance IGF-1 that comes from it – are clear.”
"It’s similar to HGH in that it aids in
recovery. It helps build tissue, and strengthen tissue -- more than you can
ever do by training alone."
Chemists have figured out that the velvet
from immature deer antlers includes insulin-like growth factor, or IGF-1, which
mediates the level of human growth hormone in the body, and is also banned by
MLB, for its muscle-building and fat-cutting effects.
Looks at the benefits:
- Enhanced muscle building. Body builders find that they can increase
muscle mass with ease when using deer antler velvet.*
- Enhanced healing properties for
torn tendons and cartilage. Because of
the growth properties associated with this product, athletes can heal faster
when using this supplement.*
- Weight loss. Because deer antler velvet contains IGF-1
(Insulin-like Growth Factor 1), it helps regulate insulin levels and decreases
insulin resistance. Many people find
that it is very easy to drop weight once they begin this product.*
- Improvement with osteoarthritis
pain. The properties of deer antler
velvet have been shown to decrease inflammation associated with arthritis which
- Hormone balancing in women. Deer antler velvet has been shown to help
balance hormones in women, helping them to regulate weight and body functions.*
- Regenerative properties. The amino construction and IGF-1 found in deer
antler velvet has a regenerative property that helps reduce signs of aging and
helps the body eliminate old cells and regenerate healthier, leaner and
IGF-1 also has a
profound effect on the heart muscle. In a randomized, double blind human study
IGF-1 stimulated a significant increase in strength and efficiency of heart
function. These people had severely damaged hearts but still realized an
increase in blood volume pumped through the heart. IGF-1 also helps preserve
cardiac function in normal, healthy people as well.
One of the most
important discoveries about Deer Antler Velvete in the last 30 years is that it
contains a small molecular weight protein which has the unique ability to
modulate the immune system. This means that, if the immune system is depressed,
this particular protein can dramatically improve it.
One of the most
exciting discoveries about IGF-1 is its ability to stimulate repair of damaged
nerves. In culture tubes containing spinal cord motor neurons, IGF-1 stimulated
a 150% to 270% increase in activity. In animal studies IGF-1 repaired and
reconnected nerve endings up to a distance of six millimeters. This is
astounding when one realizes that severe nerve damage of more than one inch may
result in permanent damage. In other animal studies IGF-1 increased
intramuscular nerve sprouting tenfold.
muscle tissue while it shifts your metabolism to preferentially burn fast.
Regardless of the type of diet or weight loss program you are on, IGF-1 will
help you support your weight management and promote a healthy body weight.

is only effective when administered intravenously. What LifeSource’s IGF-1 utilizes a new
liposome technology to facilitate absorption of IGF almost immediately into
your system. While most capsules,
tablets and liquids pass through the digestive tract, which can reduce the
amount of IGF-1 absorbed, our version is absorbed almost immediately without
loss of the active ingredient which means results. New Zealand has been free of deer "wasting

Keep in mind that IGF-1 is a hormone-related
product. Hormone therapy is not an exact science, and you should always consult
your physician before taking a product that can affect hormonal balance.
Hormone-related supplements affect different people in different ways, so
caution should always be exercised. IGF-1 should not be used to correct stunted
growth or abnormal hormone production except under the care of a physician.*
