Health Notes

Deer Antler Extract

Deer Antler Extract
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Deer antler extract may contain the hard base of deer antlers in powdered form, the velvety covering on deer antlers, or some combination of the two. Deer antler base has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine, as documented in classical Chinese texts dating to more than 2,000 years ago. Deer antler velvet is a newer addition to the dietary supplement market, becoming more popular only in recent years.
