This is very important because this is the primary ingredient (backbone) Surthrival’s Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver.
Velvet Deer Antler Extract is one of the worlds oldest Raw Super Foods. It has been used and documented in eastern medicine for over 2 thousand years. It is considered a raw food because ﬁrst of all it is a raw food, but one that is considered by many as the most nutrient dense in the planet.
Clipping the top tips of a certain type of deer’s antler creates this raw food. The deer antlers are actually the only mammalian organs that regenerate. It is along the same concept of cutting a lizards tail off. This organ grows 1 inch a day and contains all essential and non essential amino acids, hundreds of poly peptide combinations and a natural balanced matrix of growth factors with their co factor/co enzymes which prevent any imbalances and stem cells. One of the main components in Velvet Deer Antler is IGF-1. IGF-1 is essentially the end result of HGH. There has been a wealth of negative attention brought on to this polypeptide. The actual negative side effects only come from the synthetically derived versions of IGF-1 isolates (Only the IGF-1 molecule) and HGH.
Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver is an all-natural version of these polypeptides IGF-1 and HGH, there fore it will not harm you or cause any negative side effects experienced with synthetics. Also what ever your body is not using or absorbing it will excrete just as it you would with whey protein. Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver is the only 43:1 extract Velvet Deer Antler that that is standardized 100/45 mcg a bottle of IGF-1. This means that it takes 43 lbs down to make 1 lb of our extract. Avinotropin contains only antler tips because they contain the highest concentration of growth factors and other beneﬁcial constituents. We then extract it into 100% organic grape alcohol. The reason for this is so it strengthens the product, acts as an all-natural preservative and helps to stimulate the glands under tongue responsible for absorbing sublingual tinctures. When taking this product you will hold it under your tongue so it may directly pass into the blood stream. It is important to take polypeptides under your tongue and the reason is that polypeptides like IGF-1 breakdown in your digestive tract and become just free form amino acids.
Immortal Velvet is also bottled and delivered in all an all Miron glass environment, this prevents the poly peptides from binding to things like plastic containers, if this formula was bottled in a plastic container with in a year it would not contain a single growth factor in it. The Miron glass is also light sensitive, which is used to enhance the Bioactivity and life span of the living antler tips.
The reason it is standardized is so we can deliver the same exact amount of growth factors per bottle every time. Since the level on constituents varies with each batch of antler, it is vital to have each batch tested for levels of constituents. Immortal Velvet Gold and Silver marker levels are the IGF-1 molecules.
Immortal Velvet feature elements:
- Made exclusively from herds of free-range elk in the U.S.
- Humanely harvested, we never use “cutting rooms”, tourniquets, anesthetics, or tranquilizers on our elk
- Concentrated 43:1 before extraction, yielding the highest potency
- Extracted in orgranic grape ethanol for maximum quality and absorbability
- Bottled in superior Violet Miron Glass for maximum freshness, stability and storability
- Our organic grape alcohol delivery system ensures that growth factors are optimally absorbed
- Available in three strengths: Gold, Silver and Platinum with Tribulus. Same product, different concentrations
Differentiation of Concentrations
All of our Immortal Velvet products are based on our proprietary 43:1 extract. Through sublimation we are able to concentrate our raw velvet antler material 43 times.
This means that 43 pounds of raw velvet antler tips are concentrated down to just one pound of our dried extract. One and a half grams of this 43:1 extract goes into our 1 oz. bottle of Immortal Velvet Platinum, 1 gram of our 43:1 extract goes into every bottle of Immortal Velvet Gold and nearly a half gram goes into each 1 oz. bottle of Immortal Velvet Silver.
Another way to say this, is that our Immortal Velvet Platinum contains 1,500mg of our 43:1 Elk Antler Velvet extract, our Immortal Velvet Gold contains 1,000mg of our 43:1 Elk Antler Velvet extract and our Immortal Velvet Silver contains 450mg of our 43:1 extract of Elk Antler Velvet.
Because of the different amounts of our 43:1 extract in each formula, the amount of IGF-1 per bottle differs as well. The Immortal Velvet Platinum has 50mg of Antler Velvet per dose and yields 150mcg of IGF-1 per bottle. Our Immortal Velvet Gold has 33-36mg of Antler Velvet per dose, which yields 100mcg of IGF-1 per bottle. The Immortal Velvet Silver has 14-16mg of Antler Velvet per dose and yields 45mcg of IGF-1 per bottle.
What do growth factors do?
Insulin-like Growth Factors 1 and 2 (IGF-1 and IGF-2) IGF-1 and IGF-2 increase lean body mass, reduce fat, build bone, muscle, and nerves while assisting in glucose metabolism. Research indicates that IGF-1 encourages the absorption of both chondroitin and glucosamine sulfate. Research also shows that a decline in IGF-1 levels is among the causes of bone disorder development. IGF-1 is considered by many scientists to be a marker in overall growth hormone status. IGF-1 looks and acts enough like insulin that your cell receptors may become suppressed, causing growth hormones to release stored fat. Through this mechanism, cells will use up fat rather than sugar or other carbohydrates. IGF-2 promotes tissue growth and is expressed primarily in embryonic and neonatal tissues.
