Professional Athletes in Some Sports Now Allowed to Use Deer Antler Velvet Sprays

While some sports leagues like the NFL have banned deer antler velvet usage by their pro athletes, the PGA has recently reversed course and now appears to allow deer antler velvet supplements.


The Professional Golfer’s Association (PGA) announced this week that it would not take any suspension action against pro golfers who admitted to using deer antler velvet, a natural IGF-1 supplement, to enhance their athletic performance.

While deer antler velvet, an increasingly popular performance supplement among many athletes, remains on the NFL’s banned substance list, it now appears to be gaining acceptance among other professional sports organizations.

No test for the usage of deer antler velvet or its IGF-1 ingredients is currently available. Since deer antler velvet is not an illegal substance, and is considered all-natural, amateur athletes have been able to use it for several years now.

As media coverage has increased, the popularity of deer antler products has well, and significant shortages have occurred.

Unlike steroids, which are banned by most sports organizations as illegal substances, deer antler velvet is a natural supplement that is not currently illegal under any U.S. law. As a natural substance, deer antler velvet is not regulated as a medication, but is instead classified as a nutritional supplement.

Popular spray forms of the supplement, like AntlerX, use naturally harvested velvet from the antlers of New Zealand red deer (the most potent source) and process it into a spray form for use by athletes, bodybuilders, and those seeking the many health benefits associated with deer antler velvet usage.

The dramatic effects of deer antler velvet come from its status as a potent natural source of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1, or IGF-1.

IGF-1 is a naturally occurring anabolic hormone that, when taken in spray or capsule form, can stimulate faster muscle growth and recovery. IGF-1 is closely related to the body’s own natural human growth hormone.

Unlike synthetic medications or steroids, deer antler velvet is obtained humanely from natural sources and easily absorbed by the human body. This high bioavailability makes it an inexpensive and safe alternative to drugs or steroids, often times with faster results and no side effects.
