Our onsite veterinarian has complete oversight, ensuring the elk are in a safe environment.
IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) is a naturally occurring growth hormone capable of providing a wide array of health benefits. Many studies and extensive research have been performed showing that increased natural levels of this polypeptide provide a slew of health benefits.
Many of the Athletes that we work with have asked about the negative side effects of IGF-1 that they have heard in the news. It’s important to note, these apply solely to synthetic versions that have been unsuccessfully copied in laboratories. At TEN, we do not offer any synthetic or isolated versions of IGF-1. The insulin-like growth factor found in our velvet antler extract is a 70-chain amino acid sequence, the way your body naturally produces it on its own.

The extract we provide is derived from the growing antlers of a mature male Elk. Elk antlers regrow entirely from scratch year after year, and in fact, elk are the only mammals capable of continuously regenerating an appendage. Our onsite veterinarian places particular attention on the harvesting process making certain the needs of the elk are met. The Elk is never harmed and feels no pain during the clipping process.
Our velvet antler products are controlled entirely by us from raising the elk on our farms to bottling the final products in our FDA compliant lab in Tampa, FL. This ensures the final product is the purest single source of IGF-1 and other superfood materials. We use a 43:1 ratio for our products, which means we begin the process with 43 pounds of antler material and extract it down to only 1 pound of the purified product.
