Christchurch, New Zealand (PressExposure) May 27, 2009 -- The Founders. "Among the several thousand herbs used in Chinese traditional medicine, there is a small but elite group known as the "Kingly" or "Imperial" herbs. These were the tonic herbs used by the emperors and Sages, the wealthy and discerning; Very special herbs that were recognised as having extraordinary health promoting benefits for those fortunate or wealthy enough to acquire them. Among these Kingly herbs, and ranking alongside Ginseng as one of the most precious of all, Deer Velvet."
Deer Velvet has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2000 years and the East is still by far the largest consumer of Deer Velvet worldwide today. Deer Velvet is now being used by many people from all walks of life, from young children to top athletes. Deer Velvet is seen as a breakthrough in the western natural medicine field. Deer Velvet in the East is taken at up to 7500mg per day on the lead in to winter. NZVel products are designed and positioned to offer the correct daily amount with the greatest Bio Availability so you can get more out of every capsule. All of our products are sourced and processed in New Zealand using only the finest quality ingredients.
The Velvet. The Deer Velvet grows on the male deer in the lead up to "roaring season" and are used to fight with other males for the affection of the Doe (female deer). Once over the Deer Velvet will fall off naturally, and this process will happen again the following year. In "Domestic" situations Deer Velvet removal is carried out by veterinarians and specially trained farmers using analgesic techniques, this ensures the Deer feel no pain.
The Market Leaders. NZVel is now leading the way in Deer Velvet products by offering Deer Velvet produced using a new patented process. Our Deer VElvet product has had the molecular structure changed to allow better Bio Availability, allowing the body to assimulate up to 70% more than traditional Deer Velvet products.
Deer Velvet products currently sold today provide the body with an average of 18% absorption, absorbing 90mg of Deer Velvet for every 500mg of Deer Velvet consumed.
NZVel Bio Active Deer Velvet products allow the body to absorb up to 70%, this allows you to absorb 147mg for every 210mg of Deer Velvet consumed and over 300mg for every 500mg consumed. This is of HUGE importance, as the body needs the correct dosage to obtain the full benefits of the Deer Velvet.
What is NZVel Bio-Active Deer Velvet? The fermentation of Deer Velvet brings about a great change in the composition of Deer Velvet, converting high molecular weight proteins into low molecular weight proteins and polypeptides, so that the Deer Velvet herb medicine is greatly improved in uptake rate in the body.
Traditionally, Deer Velvet herbal medicine was boiled for very long hours before it was taken orally. This could destroy other nutrients in Deer Velvet. A patent fermentation process, used by NZVel breaks down large molecules and increases the body uptake rate by converting proteins into low molecular water extractable polypeptides. Metabolic processes occur in the aqueous phase in the body. Thus the NZVel tablets can show enhanced medicinal effects of Deer Velvet which is described by traditional Chinese herbal medicine at a small amount.
The protein profile assay study using HPLC gel filtration chromatography showed that the graph of Bio-Active Deer Velvet has shifted to the right indicating increase in the quantity of extractable water-soluble components in a sample relative to standard processed Deer Velvet.
