This process of annual regeneration is unique to deer. In the wild, the male deer sheds its antlers each year.
Mountain Red Deer Velvet is harvested to support this natural event. For farmed deer in New Zealand, it is recommended that the deer velvet be removed in order to prevent the stags using them as weapons and damaging themselves and other deer as is common in the wild. The removal process is sustainable given its annual regeneration.

What is DeerAntler Velvet ? Male deer grow antlers every year and velvet is the name given to the antlers in their early stage of growth. These antlers are soft and covered in fine velvety hair. If not removed, the antlers harden and calcify into sharp bony structures which the deer use as weapons. Deer Antler Velvet grows very quickly at up to 20mm each day. This process of annual regeneration is unique to deer.
A completely natural product, Deer Velvet is used for a wide of range of general health promoting benefits. Some of the most common uses are assisting the body's immune system, supporting stamina, athletic performance and restoring the body to general balance and wellbeing.
Deer Velvet is traditionally used for a range of general health promoting uses, not specifically as an aphrodisiac. However, improved sexual function and well-being may be a very welcome side-effect of improved general health.
Why is Deer Antler Velvet removed? What is not widely known is that in the wild, the male deer sheds antler each year, and in this respect the harvesting of Deer Velvet antler is merely the modification of a natural event. Indeed, for deer farmed in New Zealand, it is recommended that Deer Velvet is removed each year, in order to prevent stags using them as weapons and damaging themselves and other deer, as is common in the wild.
Does this removal process hurt the deer? Absolutely not! In New Zealand, Deer Velvet can only be removed by veterinarians or specially trained and certificated farmers under a programme developed in consultation with animal welfare groups approved by the New Zealand Government's Animal Welfare Advisory Committee. This ensures that all Deer Velvet removed for use in Mountain RedTM products complies with a removal process which causes no stress or injury to the animals.
Is Deer Velvet safe? Deer Antler Velvet has been consumed for at least 2000 years. The first documented use of Deer Velvet has been traced back to the Han tomb in the Hunan Province in China where a silk scroll was discovered listing over 50 conditions for which Deer Velvet is given. Consistent with the holistic approach of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Deer Velvet is taken as a general tonic to restore balance, strengthen the body and promote overall wellness. One of the few "pure" tonics among the thousands of natural remedies in the Chinese pharmacopoeia, Deer Velvet is in the same highly regarded category as ginseng.
