Root + Bones's product line is inspired by the thousands years old traditions of Taoist herbalists. Deer antler velvet’s ability to fortify Kidney yang, augment the essence and blood, and strengthen the sinews and bones make it a highly valued yang tonic in Chinese culture. Primary uses of deer antler velvet include Kidney yang deficiency, jing and blood deficiency, weakness of the sinews and bones and developmental delays in children. Traditional Chinese Theorists believe that because animals are closer to human beings than plants or other substances, animal substances are more beneficial than plants or minerals in tonifying the jing (essence) of the body.

Our deer antler velvet is from free range Red Deer in the Heilongjiang province in Northeast China. These deer are certified by the Chinese Ministry of Health to be clean and safe. Since the deer are so valuable and deer antler is essentially a renewable “resource,” deer are highly protected. The Deer Velvet is harvested from stags when their antlers are soft and rich with nutritional components like minerals, amino acids, vitamins and enzymes. In the spring antlers naturally grow at an astounding rate of almost 2 cm daily. At approximately day 60 of the growing cycle, the deer are gathered together from the free range, and the antlers are harvested under the auspices of licensed and trained veterinarians. The use of the potent neuroleptanalgesicse, when combined with local nerve blocks allows minimal discomfort to the animal.

Once humanely harvested from the deer, the antlers are freeze dried and then sliced into thin wafers. It is these thin slices that are then processed into our potent and full spectrum dual extract Deer Antler Powder.


As noted in some of the scientific studies below, Deer Antler Velvet is an incredible substance with valuable applications.  No deer are killed during this process, and the antler removal is done as humanly as possible. I understand if this does not sit well with everyone, but I believe the benefits of this medicine are so  profound that I chose to offer it.
