Studies involving the use of Elk Velvet have been conducted in Korea, China, Russia, US, and Canada. Current clinical research in Canada is being conducted by the Alberta Elk Association, University of Guelph, and the University of Alberta. The 1998 study by Dr. Brian Fisher at the University of Alberta included participants from the U or A Golden Bears Football team and Edmonton City Police officers. Dr. Fisher presented his findings at the 6th annual congress of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in Las Vegas. A couple of interesting points in the Edmonton Journal (Dec. 10/98) regarding Dr. Fishers findings:
Some geriatric specialists believe aging is due, in part, to declining levels of testosterone. Velvet may be a low-cost alternative to testosterone injections to counter aging.
While more research is required, the results may show that taking velvet could be a way of boosting strength and endurance without using anabolic steroids or other artificial chemicals.
