What is Elk Velvet Antler

Elk Velvet Antler refers to the Velvet Stage of antler growth.


During this first stage of growth, the antler is made of cartilage and it is covered with a soft fuzzy coat of hair, referred to as, velvet.


In the Velvet Stage, the antler will grow approximately 2 cm per day. This rapid growth is a result of an optimum combination of Nutrients and Natural Growth Hormones that are only present at this stage.

 Prior to antlers calcifying into bone, the antlers are humanely removed from the male elk.

The antler is then dried and the skin and hair are removed and it is ground into powder.

Male elk naturally shed their antlers and grow a new set every year, therefore E.V.A. can be harvested from the elk annually.
