Austin, TX – April 21, 2016 – Jim Powers, co-founder of Bio Lab Naturals Inc and 20 year expert in the farming, manufacture, and production of deer antler velvet supplements, is warning people about products on the market claiming to be real deer antler velvet, when in fact they are imitations. These weakened or diluted forms fall short in providing the benefits that are enjoyed when taking genuine, pure deer antler velvet, and threaten the reputation of this beneficial natural supplement.
Popular with doctors and athletes, genuine deer antler velvet can aid recovery time after training and help with injuries, joint pain, lean muscle development, and body composition. This is due to their properties; deer antlers are a renewable source, they harden, fall off, and re-grow every year. Health benefits include improvements in hormone balance, immune system, heart function, and bone density. A synthetic or artificial product, however, could cause an adverse reaction as the body struggles to filter out excess artificial IGF-1, which can lead to a variety of health issues.

Mr. Powers has plenty of first-hand experience with producing pure, top-quality deer antler velvet. Mr. Powers worked for a government-owned research facility studying deer antler extracts and in 2005, he developed a farming system in Idaho which continues to research and develop this invaluable supplement. He has managed the entire process from birth to bottle and knows most of what there is to know about obtaining the extract, from the birth of the elk to the end result; a bottle on the shelf containing a supplement which has many health benefits. Coining the phrase “If it’s a spray, walk away,” Mr. Powers explains that deer antler is brown, is not water soluble, and cannot be dispensed in a mist from a spray bottle. Therefore, a clear or light-colored spray that claims to contain deer antler velvet will not contain sufficient concentration of the genuine extract and could, in fact, be worthless, or worse, harmful.
Genuine deer antler velvet is sold in a liquid form, administered with a dropper from a dark colored glass bottle. This protects it from the sun’s harmful effects and prevents the polypeptides from breaking down. A liquid form is more effective than capsule because the absorption rate is 75% to 85%, compared to the 15% rate of a capsule.
Mr. Powers is producing a short video review series designed to educate people about imitations which are appearing on the market. He encourages people not to waste their time and money on sprays that claim to imitate the real thing.
