Mountain Red Deer Velvet Facts
No deer are harmed during the collection of Mountain Red deer velvet
Our product is humanely collected under strict quality control methods to ensure animal health and welfare are carefully considered. All animals are free to wander on our open ranches in New Zealand. Once the velvet has been harvested, the boys are released straight back out onto the farm to carry on with their day, so Mountain Red Deer Velvet is wonderfully sustainable! Mountain Red exceeds all velveting standards, we are fully accredited by Deer Industry New Zealand and we are also independently audited.
Deer velvet is used by a huge range of people—young & old, male & female
It is helpful for the weekend warriors who play a multitude of sports, those who enjoy a round of golf or a game of tennis, runners, swimmers or those who just want to “keep fit” and get the many benefits offered by the regular use of Mountain Red deer velvet. Top class athletes are able to train harder for longer and recover more quickly from hard training.

Mountain Red deer velvet does not use any harmful chemicals
Mountain Red deer velvet does not use any harmful chemicals during the collection of its deer velvet. Mountain Red does not use xylazine, a sedative, during the collection process. We guarantee that all of our velvet is xylazine free! This is better for our deer and better for you! 100% natural, pure New Zealand deer velvet.
Velvet is not Antler. Antler is much lighter. Velvet is a rich reddy brown colour
Velvet is not antler. Antler is hard inactive bone whereas velvet is soft and a rich source of bioactives. One easy way to tell the difference is by looking at the colour of the product—velvet is a rich reddy brown colour and antler products are light in colour. Be wary of products that are light in colour, as they are most likely a product with a higher percentage of bone in it. At Mountain Red, we harvest our premium velvet at the optimum time during the season to ensure that all the amazing properties are well maintained and to ensure we are harvesting antler, not bone. Because we work so closely with our boys who grow our wonderful velvet, we know exactly when that velvet is ready to harvest and then back out into the paddock they go. Here at Mountain Red, we guarantee the quality of our deer velvet—we know our boys grow the very best deer velvet possible.
Deer velvet is not a steroid
Mountain Red deer velvet contains IGF-1 & IGF-2, which are a class of polypeptides similar to those found in steroids. They are naturally occurring substances which are found in deer velvet along with other ingredients including proteins, amino acids, collagen and lipids. This results in a product which helps to improve the body’s strength, stamina and athletic performance. In many sports steroid use is banned, deer velvet is not a banned substance.
We believe that nature has it right, which is why Mountain Red deer velvet is a 100% pure
We believe that nature has it right which is why Mountain Red deer velvet is a ‘whole extract’ containing the full range of bioactives as opposed to a modified product or spray. So called ‘velvet sprays’ gained notoriety when a number of high profile athletes were linked to their use. We don’t change anything about our deer velvet product, our boys grow it and we package it for you just as nature intended with no modifications, additives or preservatives. Mountain Red deer velvet is 100% pure.
