Do you harm the elk for its antlers?
No, we do not harm the elk for its antlers; it is a renewable food source. The antler actually hardens, falls off naturally, and regrows every year. The animals are humanely treated and kept in an optimal state of health so that we are always producing high quality velvet antler extract. The process for the animal is about as painful and stressful as clipping a human fingernail.
Can I overdose on this product?
No, velvet antler is 90% proteins or amino acids. These amino acids bind together in large sequences to create growth factors. For instance the IGF-1 molecule is a 70-chain amino acid sequence. Since the supplements are primarily proteins, whatever your body is not absorbing you will just excrete through urine or sweat.
Is this like HGH?
No, our products are not like HGH because HGH is synthetically derived. IGF-1 is the metabolite or end result of natural growth hormone (GH), velvet antler also contains a balanced matrix of growth factors, including the master growth factor, which is IGF-1. In total there are over 100 active constituents found in velvet antler extract.
Is this like synthetic IGF-1?
No, this is not a synthetic product or version of IGF-1. It is also not an isolated version of IGF-1. Whenever you take an isolate you create some imbalance in your body. The IGF-1 in velvet antler is derived and delivered as it was intended in nature, which is in a balanced matrix. The IGF-1 found in velvet antler is a 70-chain amino acid sequence, which is what your body naturally produces on its own.
How and when was velvet antler discovered?
Velvet antler has been used for over 2,000 years and falls only second in use in Asia to ginseng. It has been used in Eastern medicine and is still used and continuously researched to this day. Domestically we are the fourth largest consumer of velvet antler extract in the world.
What makes BioProtein Technology velvet antler so special?
BioProtein Technology is a vertically integrated velvet antler company, meaning we have full control from the conception of the animal to the end bottling of the product. Since we start with a superior raw material we have a great advantage against the competition. We also have an exclusive 43:1 extract, meaning that it takes 43 pounds of raw antler to make 1 pound of freeze dried extract, we then extract it twice more into water and organic grape alcohol.
Will I become dependent on any of the velvet antler extract products? Will I need to always stay on it?
Our products are not drugs and are naturally derived and therefore will not cause dependency. Our products are super foods and provide nutrition crucial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Many people who temporarily stop taking our products chose to begin supplementation again because they can feel the difference.
Is the Tribulus in Sub• L Tropin safe for women?

Can I take Hydro Cell under my tongue like the other products instead of mixed in water?
Yes. If you don’t mind the taste of Hydro Cell, under the tongue is a good way to take it. Many people experience the greatest benefit from taking 2/3 of a dropper under the tongue first thing in the morning and right before a workout and sipping water mixed with Hydro Cell throughout the day.
Will Hydro Cell cause my body to detox?

Is it okay to take more than the recommended serving size?

When is the best time to take it?
Hydro Cell is best taken throughout the day and should always be taking before and during a workout. Hydro Cell can also enhance the absorption of other supplements, so taking your vitamins and other supplements with it is optimal.
Is it okay to take more than the recommended daily dosage?
Yes, many Americans have vitamin B deficiencies due to the foods we eat and because vitamin B is water-soluble your body excretes what it does not use.
When is the best time to take it?
Sub• B Tropin is best used in the morning and also at any time of day when an energy boost is desired. It is important to take water-soluble vitamins like B vitamins every day because deficiency occurs quickly.
Do I still need to continue lipotropic injections if I take this?
Sub• M.I.C. can be used as a lipotropic injection support or alternative. Sub• M.I.C. may be more beneficial than injections because you can take a daily dose instead of a large dose once a week. When taken in a large dose (like enough for the week) the body will simply excrete what it does not need.

Most people take Remabolic right before bed because they feel the calming effects right away. For those who have trouble getting to sleep, taking Remabolic about 30- 45 minutes before bed may be optimal.

How do I take these products?
For best results take this in the morning on an empty stomach. Make sure your mouth is clear of all food particles (rinse your mouth with water before use). Hold 30 drops (2/3 of a dropper) under the tongue for 90 seconds, swish around your mouth for an additional 30 seconds and then swallow the remnants. Wait 10 to 15 minutes after consumption to consume any food or beverages.
Why is there alcohol in these products?
Alcohol works as part of the delivery system, allowing direct absorption into the bloodstream. It also serves as an all-natural preservative and strengthens the product.
Why aren’t the products in a capsule?
Our formulas are not encapsulated because capsules do not provide the best form of absorption into the body. For instance traditional tablet or capsule absorption is greatly affected by stomach acid, intestinal absorption and liver metabolism. These three processes can lower absorptions rates by 90-99%. Growth factors cannot be administered in an oral tablet; they are unstable molecules and break down as soon as they hit stomach acid. Our delivery system allows for direct absorption into the bloodstream, so the body has better access and utilization of them.
Why are the products packaged in glass bottling?
We only use amber glass bottles that prevent the harmful effects of sunlight from degrading the bioactive components of the extract. The all-glass environment prevents the polypeptides from binding to things like plastic containers and tubing used by most spray velvet antler products. Growth factor molecules tend to bind to plastic and not glass, so our packaging provides a superior environment for a velvet antler extract product.
Are these products for patients of all ages?
Our products offer numerous benefits for people of all ages. If you are under the age of 18 we recommend consulting your doctor or healthcare provider before beginning supplementation with any dietary product.
I am taking other supplements (ex. protein powder, multi-vitamin, joint formulas), can I still take these products in addition to my other non-prescription supplements?
Yes, none of our products will interfere with other supplements and Hydro Cell can actually enhance the absorption and utilization of vitamins and minerals, allowing you to take less of them and get a more potent effect. However, we recommend that before taking any nutritional supplement you first speak to your doctor or healthcare provider.
Can I take these along with my prescription drugs?
Our products are natural whole foods that work as healing therapies. However, before taking any nutritional supplement, it is important to first speak to your doctor or health care provider. Our product has no known or documented side effects or drug interactions.
If I am taking several of these products, can I take them at the same time or do I need to space them out?
These products will not interfere with each other and can be taken together on an empty stomach. In fact, Hydro Cell should be taken with other supplements, as it will enhance the absorption and utilization of them.
Will the velvet antler products make me look too muscular?
