What is the Dosage for Deer Antler Velvet?

The recommended dosage for deer antler velvet capsules is:

• 1000 mg (2 caps daily) for maintaining general health
• 2000 mg (4 caps daily) for therapeutic effects
• 3000 mg (6 caps daily) for athletic performance

Capsules may be taken with or without meals. We recommend taking half the daily dose in the morning and half the daily dose in the evening.

The recommended dosages for deer antler spray and tablets are:

• 2 ml (2 droppers daily) of extract liquid for competitive performance
• 1 extract tablet daily for professional performance

Our extracts, taken sublingually, have an absorption rate of 95%- an extremely high bioavailability. The extract liquid should be taken on an empty stomach, twice daily. The bottle should be shaken well before use. Place one dropper (one squeeze of the bulb = 1 ml = about 20 drops) under the tongue and hold in mouth for 90 seconds before swallowing. The extract tablet should also be taken on an empty stomach, one daily. Bite the tablet a few times to break it up, hold the pieces under the tongue and allow to dissolve, then swallow.

These doses are supported by research in New Zealand and experience with regular users of deer antler velvet.  Deer antler velvet’s efficacy is generally dose dependent which means taking more produces greater results. 

Deer antler velvet's effects are gradual, cumulative and develop over time. Therefore, it is important to use our deer antler velvet products on a consistent basis to receive the full benefits.

Response time will depend on a number of factors including personal constitution, the health of the individual, and diet. Because of the nature of deer velvet as an adaptogen, its specific action on each individual, including the width, depth and speed of the action, will vary. Some people notice immediate results after a few days of use, while others notice results after a course of a few months. The average response time is between 3-4 weeks.

Studies have shown that using deer antler velvet supplements at the recommended doses is nontoxic.

Caution: Symptoms of deer antler velvet overdose include bloody nose, dizziness, headache or red eyes. Some people report upset stomach. In these cases, reduce the dosage or discontinue use. Information regarding safety and efficacy during pregnancy and lactation is lacking, so please avoid use during these times. Xylitol, a natural sweetener contained in our deer antler velvet extract, is toxic to dogs. Do not give deer antler velvet extract to pets.
