Any one taken it? Does it do anything?
I would be cynical in what the articles state from the links above; from the way deer velvet is described it is too good for it to be all true with no side affects.
"Deer velvet is used to boost strength and endurance, improve the way the immune system works, counter the effects of stress, and promote rapid recovery from illness. It is also used at the onset of winter to ward off infections." -WebMD
'In herbal combinations, deer velvet is used to improve athletic performance; to improve eyesight and hearing; to reduce stress; and to treat arthritis...' -WebMD
"In addition, traditional medicine has used deer antler velvet to improve mental alertness and memory, boost immune system function, speed wound healing and recovery, slow aging, balance iron levels, improve libido in both sexes, and restore joint health." -Bodybuilding.com
"No side-effects are known. It's not known if deer antler velvet interacts with other drugs. Some people may have allergies to deer antler velvet." -Bodybuilding.com
"Deer antler velvet is essentially a growth hormone called "insulin-like growth factor 1," or IGF-1."
"...many athletes take several times the recommended dosage, which can result in adverse effects, Mezitis said. For example, too much IGF-1 may cause tendons to become too tight and break or may disrupt how the body metabolizes fats and sugars."
The article does not deny that deer velvet has been "linked to improving cartiliage damage in joints due to repetitive trauma" but that it has not been proven/approved yet by several organization and is an considered an unregulated supplement. Honestly to the right person it would probably be worth trying but I would check with someone with medical experience first.
worked wonders for ray lewis..
definitely wasn't a result of taking PEDS.... no not at all (clearly NOT a bitter Pats fan here...)
There's an elk ranch near here that sells elk velvet. I had no fucking idea what it was used for until now. Thanks.

A quick google search and some reading later...
Seems to be a product that has some mixed studies. Some studies say that it has a use or may be linked to increase in strength and recovery. However, there are many other studies that say it has no effect whatsoever on physical performance.
aswell as the quality of the studies that say it doesnt work seem to be of better standard than the ones that do say it has some effects
Probably a bad and supplement.
heres a couple of journals.
The Elk stuff only makes your penis grow 3". I know some people will say 3" is still 4" too short but it's better than nothing.......
