A whole food supplement effective for improving recovery from exercise, reducing muscle soreness, and promoting joint health.



What is Deer Antler Velvet?
Deer antler velvet (DAV) is the tissue that covers deer antlers and transports blood and nutrients during their high-growth phase. DAV is comprised primarily of growth factors, amino acids, Glycosaminoglycans, calcium and an array of minerals and enzymes.
How is LIFE DAV harvested?
All LIFE DAV is sourced directly from New Zealand and is humanely and ethically harvested from free range deer so as to cause no harm to the animals. The velvet is then cold processed to prevent damage and denaturing of the enzymes to ensure maximum effectiveness when taken as a supplement.
Why should I take Deer Antler Velvet?
While the components of DAV are widely known and taken as standalone supplements — proteins and amino acids for tissue growth, calcium to strengthen and support bone health, glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid for joint repair and maintenance — DAV itself is a whole food supplement benefiting from the entourage effect, meaning the effectiveness of the sum is greater than the individual parts. DAV is therefore utilized by athletes to maximize their recovery and resilience, aging individuals looking to restore and preserve their active lifestyle, and those with injuries hoping for a fast, effective road to recovery.
What makes LIFE DAV special?
As with any consumable — be it food, medicine or supplements — purity and effectiveness are the hallmarks of a quality product. These factors depend on a key characteristic — the source of the ingredients. LIFE DAV contains 100% pure deer antler velvet sourced only from New Zealand farms with the highest quality control and processing techniques. We do not believe in ‘proprietary blends’ to hide the use of filler ingredients. Quality of our ingredients and sourcing are what make LIFE DAV a superior product.


Sports performance hinges on the athlete’s ability to recover – and recover quickly. LIFE DAV is comprised of growth enzymes, amino acids (building blocks of protein), and glycosaminoglycans — commonly sold independently as glucosamine and chondroitin — to promote joint and soft tissue health. LIFE is also banned substance free to ensure safety for all athletes. LIFE Deer Antler Velvet aims to:
  • Boost recovery by helping to repair muscle tissue
  • Strengthen ligaments and tendons to counteract injuries
  • Reduce inflammation
In a randomized, double blind experiment conducted by C.E. Broeder in 2004, 32 males with at least 4 years of strength training experience showed improved recovery speed and a significant increase in aerobic capacity due to deer antler velvet supplementation. Better recovery enables athletes to maintain the high level of training required to reach their athletic potential.


Growing older is synonymous with reduced activity, constantly sore joints from a lifetime of wear, and generally ‘slowing down’ – LIFE DAV aims to restore your way of life. In a study by Wang Ben-Xiang on a specific breed of mouse known to show early senility, DAV was found to:
  • Increase testosterone in males
  • Decrease activity of enzymes associated with aging
  • Increase liver and kidney protein synthesis
Following research and clinical studies, DAV was recognized by the FDA in 1999 “to support healthy joint structure and function” due to high quantities of glycosaminoglycans — specifically chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid. DAV also provides a significant source of calcium to help combat osteoporosis. 


Whether you’re a competitive athlete, weekend warrior or the everyday man (or woman) — injuries happen. From tweaks and sprains, to tears and breaks… not all injuries are preventable, but the road to recovery doesn’t have to be so long. Life DAV contains several key components aimed to expedite the recovery process and set you up for a full recovery.
  • Protein structures, amino acids and growth enzymes to aid with tissue repair
  • Glycosaminoglycans — specifically rich in chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid for joint health
  • Calcium to support bone growth and density
Faster, better recovery means less time away from training and being able to complete daily activities, making the most of rehabilitation, and positioning yourself to come back stronger. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
