EVA Nutrition & Health Benefits

Diet alone is not enough – it is virtually impossible to structure your diet to include all the nutrients necessary to help your body remain healthy and meet the demands of today’s hectic pace.

A vast body of research is now revealing an impressive array of reported abilities of EVA to reduce inflammation, influence body metabolism, support immune function, protect damaged tissues and more.  Laboratory analyses now show that EVA contains an amazingly comprehensive nutritional profile including collagen, amino acids, essential fatty acids, minerals, trace minerals, and other functional proteins, all vital components for human metabolic function.  The variety of nutrients in EVA work together to be absorbed more easily into your body’s system to reach the living tissues in your joints.  These tissues contribute to the lubrication and cushioning of the joint’s structural support system.

The fact that EVA is used to treat a wide variety of health conditions does not mean it is a wonder cure.  However, because many illnesses are the result of nutritional deficiencies, it appears that the wide spectrum of nutritional components in velvet positively address these imbalances in a safe, gentle manner, with no side effects. 

Velvet antler may help to:
  • Increase physical stamina
  • Boost energy levels
  • Strengthen bones, ligaments and tendons
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Lubricate joints
  • Speed healing of damaged tissues
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Assist blood flow
  • Improve mental sharpness and alertness
  • Strengthen the immune system after high exertion
  • Increase oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood
  • Promote general good health and prevent injury
“Elk Velvet Antler provides nutritional support for joint structure and function.”

Where does EVA come from?

Elk antlers regenerate every year, and are known to be the fastest growing animal tissue known. Antler is the only mammalian bone structure that regenerates annually. Elk Velvet Antler (EVA), the form used for nutritional purposes, is harvested from the elk about half-way through the incredibly prolific annual growth cycle.  EVA is loaded with growth factors, immune factors, cartilage, glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and collagen – unlike the inert and calcified horn or tooth that are permanent and do not regenerate annually.  The harvesting process used by elk farmers is not harmful to the elk.  The velvety covering on the antler is not used in the EVA products.  It is the inner cartilaginous matrix that is used.

Elk have the ability to rapidly heal their own broken bones, torn muscles and severed tendons.  The elk is the only animal that is known to utilize self-healing powers to regenerate bone, muscle and tissue.  It is these properties that, in fact, produce the antlers annually.  A truly remarkable and renewable all natural product!

References & scientific research

April 2000, Banff, Alberta. This is the time and place that nutritional supplements based on deer and elk antler finally achieve scientific recognition in the west – a recognition that has been taken for granted for well over two thousand years in the east. This was the first in Canada, Antler Science and Product Technology Symposium.  Every four years the symposium brings together a world community of scientists, doctors, processors, producers and consumers to further the exchange of knowledge and to explore new insights about antler.
