Deer Antler Velvet Dosage Equation:
The dosage of most tonics work by bodyweight and activity level and dietary factors. The amount of deer antler velvet taken is highly dependent on bodyweight and activity level.
BW + AL + DF
- Bodyweight (BW) is the overall weight measured by a bathroom or locker room scale.
- Activity level (AL) is a relative unit based on the amount of work accomplished, stress-levels and fitness-intensity.
- Diet factors (DF) are based on how much calories and food is taken in, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Estimated Daily Dosage:
BW = 1 dropper per ~75 pounds bodyweight
AL = + 0-2 droppers 0 is low, 1 is medium, 2 is high
DF = + 1 dropper for every 2500 kcal reached
Example: 155lb person (BW = 1-2 droppers) who is with a high stress day and/or high intensity exercise (AL = 2 droppers) and eats ~2000kcals (DF = 0 droppers) would have a functional dosage of ~ 3-4 droppers daily divided into 2-3 doses across the day. On a day off from work and/or exercise the activity level would be low (AL = 0 droppers) and the person would have a daily dosage of 2 droppers a day divided into 1-2 daily doses.
Example is BW 2 + AL 2 + DF 0 = ~3-4 droppers
To find a functional dose, start with a minimum dose of 10 drops to 1 dropper and work up to a functional dose.* Many benefits of tonics come from consistent and continued use over a period of time.*
Deer Antler Velvet dropper:
- 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
- 1ml dropper = ~500 mgs deer antler velvet extract
Deer Antler Velvet drops:
- 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
- 1 drop = ~17 mgs deer antler velvet extract
Suggested Deer Antler Velvet Cycle:*
- Initial Phase = 7-90 days
- Long Term = ∞
- Optional Cycle-off Period = 2-7 days
Continuous consumption of Deer Antler Velvet will yield increasing health benefits and performance results over the time consumed; in other words, consistent daily consumption of Deer Antler Velvet at a functional dosage over the period of suggested time will increase health and boost performance.*
After an initial cycle Deer Antler Velvet may be continued daily or on-and-off as desired for the long-term health and performance benefits or traded-out for another version of deer antler velvet supplement or another tonic adaptogen superfood.*
How to Take
Deer Antler Velvet is formulated to be both an energy and recovery tonic adaptogen.*
- Performance - 15-30 minutes before physical activity with a snack/shake or on an empty stomach to mobilize fat stores from tissues.*
- Recovery - take with complete meals and other supplements to support healthy growth, recovery, and endocrine function for regeneration hormones.*
Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health †
Take as desired: consume on a continuous basis to develop the natural tonic and adaptogenic benefits that build over time.* Some benefits are immediate and some results require consumption over several days and weeks to accomplish.* A good tonic cycle is 45-90 days of a tonic adaptogen which will generate lasting health changes.*
Shake gently: secure the lid and turn the bottle over back-and-forth 3-5 times to evenly distribute the tincture. Do not over-shake as the vigorous mixing of air with the extract will oxidize and damage many of the necessary constituents for required dosage and potency.
By mouth: hold the liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of extract; doing so allows digestion to begin in the mouth and will take advantage of the activated multi-step extract so that many of the constituents will bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth and throat.* Holding the extract also promotes better absorption and assimilation and elicits an immediate effect that is performance oriented*
Mix with water: squirt the drops or entire droppers into 2-4 oz. of water that is under 120*F. Water that is cool to lukewarm temperature is best to preserve the volatile and fragile constituents from being damaged and denatured which will reduce the potency of the extract.* Sip slowly to allow absorption in the mouth and throat.* This method makes it easier to become accustomed to the extract and to take larger doses of several different tinctures at once in a tonic program.*
For maximum potency: regularly consume the tincture within a period of 45 days; after 45 days of continuous consumption the extract may begin to gradually lose potency requiring a larger dosage to achieve similar benefit.* A bottle will generally last 10-30 days depending on dosage and concurrent supplementation programming.*
