Research

We attended the World's 1st International Symposium on Antler Science in Banff in 2000.  Doctors and scientists attended and presented timely research from New Zealand, France, Germany, Korea, Czech Republic, Russia, Australia, USA and Canada.  While the Symposium itself was very technical, the presentations were all about the findings and efficacy of EVA. This information is both useful as well as comprehensive in supporting the anecdotal evidence from those who use EVA.  New Zealand hosted the 2nd International Symposium in 2004 with considerably more scientific backing and documentation of the value of EVA.

Here in Canada research is occurring on the effects of EVA on arthritis and liver ailments.  New Zealand has researched the stimulation of the body's immune system and growth, and EVA anti-inflammatory uses.  Korea has undertaken anti-cancer treatment research.

There has also been research done on dogs by Canadian Veterinarians with the positive results now published in the Canadian Veterinarian Medical Journal.  A further study was done by Clint Balok DVM and his findings were remarkable and may be accessed at www.albertaelk.com entitled Velvet Antler for Pets: Myth or Reality.

In 2004 Kymythy Schultze, author of Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats - The Ultimate Diet, was in Calgary, Alberta and if you ever have the chance to hear her speak, make every effort to attend.  Her love and compassion for her animals is from the heart.  Her personal road to recovery with natural healing is amazing!   Kymythy takes her healing testimony and applies it to the reason for feeding her animals a species-appropriate diet. Her book is a must have in everyone's library.
