Royal Velvet is a proprietary and powerful, nutrient-dense, all-natural superfood that has hundreds of benefits – including reversing the aging process, dramatically improving athletic performance, boosting brain function, repairing your DNA and damaged organs, as well as improving overall health, weight, sleep, libido, blood sugar levels, cardiovascular system…and more!
Unlike all other supplements that average 0% to 5% absorption, Royal Velvet uses a special liposomal delivery system providing more than 95% absorption of the hundreds of nutrients directly into the bloodstream within one minute.
- The MOST nutrient-dense superfood in the world.
- The MOST life-changing natural product in the world.
- The MOST health-promoting adaptogen in the world.
- The MOST powerful Bio-Hack in the world.
- The MOST aging-reversing product in the world.
- The MOST organ and system repairing product in the world.
- The MOST beneficial product for optimal brain function in the world.
Recommended Adult Dosage: Three sprays four times a day. Each bottle will only last 15 days following the recommended adult dosage. You will need two bottles for a 1-month supply of Royal Velvet.
Servings per container: – Approximately 60
How do I take Royal Velvet?
Shake the bottle vigorously.
While you are shaking the bottle, suck the saliva in your mouth and swallow two or three times.
Spray three sprays under your tongue and hold for 30 to 40 seconds. One minute is ideal. Then you may swallow.
Always try to take one dosage (three sprays) of Royal Velvet at night before bedtime. This dramatically helps the brain replenish neurotransmitters, which is the purpose of sleep, and allows you to think clearer, have more joy, improve memory, intelligence, and hand-eye coordination (athletic ability).
Take three sprays right when you get up in the morning. Take an additional three sprays two to several times throughout the day.
Recommended dosage: Adults should take 3 sprays 4 times per day. Seniors, athletes, and those chronically ill may take more. Youth (ages 13 to 17) may take 3 sprays 4 times per day, just like the adult recommended dosage.
The only ‘bad’ time to take Royal Velvet is directly after a meal. No harm is done, but the 97%+ absorption rate may fall to 70% or so.
Do not let the bottle be in direct sunlight or get above 125 degrees for extended periods of time.
Do not refrigerate.
Store in a dark, cool place.
The more you take, the more efficient your cells function and replicate, and more profound results will be noticed.
When will I see results from taking Royal Velvet?
Royal Velvet contains nearly two thousand different nutrients and constituents. These work synergistically together to repair damage, nutrify cells, aid organs and systems to function properly, and provide the building materials for the brain and other organs to manufacture hundreds of different hormones, neurotransmitters, and vital substances on a daily basis.
Over the past years it seems as though over 50% of the people who take Royal Velvet will notice some improvements within the first week or two. These include, (in order of the most reported benefits to the least), but are not limited to:
Increased energy, endurance, stamina.Deeper more restful sleep. Feeling vitalized upon awakening.Improved mental clarity, memory, joy (less depression), handles stress better.Fewer aches and pain.Increased libido.
Again, not everyone will see all of these benefits right away. For example, if you do not have any aches or pain, there is no need to repair the damage in the body that causes them.
You ask when will you see results? You are receiving the benefits of taking Royal Velvet the moment you begin taking it! You just might not be feeling anything different at the beginning. There may be major repairs going on inside your body that do not manifest towards feeling anything different. If a large percentage of the nutrients are going towards repairing damage in tissues or organs, then it may take longer for you to feel the changes that other people may see within the first couple weeks of taking Royal Velvet.
Make sure you are taking Royal Velvet correctly.
Shake the bottle vigorously. Suck the saliva in your mouth and swallow a couple of times. Spray 3 sprays directly under your tongue, then close your mouth, Hold for at least 35 to 40 seconds, then swallow. ALWAYS take at least 3 sprays at night before bedtime. ALWAYS! Take 3 sprays at least 3 other times throughout the day.
Sometimes the changes can be subtle, not dramatic. We have had thousands of people call or email us and ask when will they begin to see results. When we begin asking them questions, they think about it, then admit to improvements. You may not see the dramatic improvements that others see at first, but your body is changing for the better.
IF your expectations are high, you may be disappointed if the “feeling” type benefits do not show up first. You must be patient and let your body heal and change as it determines which things need to be repaired first.
Though Royal Velvet is very powerful, if you are taking drugs (illegal, prescription, or over-the-counter), you may see fewer benefits than those who do not take drugs. Drugs are toxic chemicals that destroy cells, damage tissues and the DNA, and overall wreak havoc in your body (especially in organs like the liver). The fact of the matter is you may be placing into your body more substances that destroy than Royal Velvet can repair. (Think of an army of a million bad guys against an army of 100 good guys.)
How can Royal Velvet, all by itself, do all the things people report that it does?
In order to fully understand how Royal Velvet can do all the amazing things people and clinical studies report it does, you first must understand how the human body functions. A college degree in physiology would help. Since that would exclude most people, we have written something very pithy and informative that will instantly give you a greater understanding of how the human body functions.
An extremely condensed version:
Your body was designed to function optimally, IF you treat it properly.
An analogy: your automobile was designed. It functions best when you put gas in the gas tank, change the oil, rotate the tires, and get a tune-up as recommended, etc. Imagine putting water in the gas tank and never changing the oil. It would malfunction and eventually stop running. Your body is the same. Ignore the ‘rules’ of how your body was designed and it will malfunction.
Your body is made up of approximately 75 trillion cells.
You create approximately 150 billion new cells per day. (To replace the old, dying ones.)
These 150 billion cells do NOT come from thin air. You need building materials (read: nutrients) fed to your cells in order for them to correctly create new cells. Aging is the result of the body losing more cells than it replaces.
Also, of utmost importance, the brain controls all bodily functions.
The only way for the brain to communicate with the rest of the body is through neurotransmitters via the neuronal pathways in the Central Nervous System. Neurotransmitters are manufactured in the brain during sleep from very unique and specific combinations of nutrients.
Nearly every person is lacking in many of the vital nutrients needed for optimal brain function and cellular replication.
Royal Velvet supplies the body and brain with these vital nutrients. Scores of these vital nutrients are not found in 99% of the typical American diet. Even if people consumed 100% PURE natural nutrition, most people would still suffer from the effects of malnutrition. Why?
The vast majority of people have toxic colons, they do NOT absorb nutrients from the food they eat very efficiently. Royal Velvet BYPASSES the digestive system and enters the bloodstream within a minute of use, WITH 97% ABSORPTION! The highest possible percentage of absorption of nutrients you can receive from supplements (pills, tablets, caplets, powders, liquids…) is 10%, with AT LEAST 90% NOT being absorbed into your body, but excreted out of your body!
Royal Velvet has been shown to increase cellular replication, increase the number of cellular divisions by 300%, protect the integrity of the DNA in each cell, and help the cells to function more optimally and last longer. This is why your body REVERSES the aging process and you look and feel younger after continued use of Royal Velvet.
The only way for the brain to communicate with the rest of the body is through neurotransmitters via the neuronal pathways in the Central Nervous System. Royal Velvet supplies the body and brain with these vital nutrients. Scores of these vital nutrients are not found in 90%+ of the typical American diet.
Royal Velvet also dramatically increases the production of stem cells inside the bone marrow (where stem cells are made). This is one of the hundreds of reasons why people who have had major injuries, even spinal cord injuries, have experienced renewed life and dramatic healing.
What are the ingredients of Royal Velvet?
1 bottle Contains: 1 fluid ounce. (30 ml) This is approximately 180 sprays.
Each serving (3 sprays) contains: 16.5 mg deer antler velvet extract. Other ingredients: Purified water, Natural Lemon Flavor, Stevia Extract, xylitol, citric acid, lecithin, potassium sorbate.
What are the nutrients that Royal Velvet will supply to my body?
There are simply too many to list and name. Probably the most amazing substances are the Growth Factors. You may read about them here. Plan to be astonished, as the growth factors are absolutely the most amazing substances that your body uses to give you the highest quality and longest life possible.
Here are some of the life-changing nutrients found in Royal Velvet:
Royal Velvet contains an incredible array of nutrients, some of which are not available from hardly any other source. They include, but are not limited too:
-All the amino acids, including all the essential amino acids. It is impossible to have proper cellular replication without all the amino acids in near-perfect balance. (FYI: amino acids may be linked together almost indefinitely to form more than 50,000 different proteins and more than 20,000 known enzymes.)
-All the glycosaminoglycans (chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine, dermatan, keratan, etc.) These nutrients and organic compounds are vital to the health of cartilage, joints, and bones. It is the loss of cartilage that starts the domino effect of stiffness, pain, immobility, etc.
-The growth factors (IGF-1. IGF-2, Transforming Growth Factor beta, and others.) Growth factors play the major role in the human body in repairing damaged tissue, wound healing, angiogenesis (development of new blood vessels), cellular mitosis (creation of new cells through cellular divisions), as well as many important bodily functions.
Dr. Michael Rosenbaum stated, “Velvet antler contains the missing link to longevity, something just not present in all the promising nutrition programs I have ever worked with. Its growth factors are a significant part of what makes it so special. Growth factors may be the only substances than can retard and even reverse aging.”
-Minerals, minerals, and more minerals. Nearly all known minerals. In the right proportions! Organic, third state, ionic, living complex minerals. Entire books have been written about minerals and their benefits to the human body.
-Neurotrophin, nerve growth factors (NT-3). For survival and growth, neurons require these unique proteins. Very promising clinical studies and/or anecdotal testimonies are being reported with people needing myelin sheath repair, seniors with motor neuron problems, paraplegics and spinal cord injuries, as well as others, using nerve growth factors.
-Bone morphogenic protein – what stimulates bone growth and bone strength.
-Linolenic acid – the most important of all our essential fatty acids. The building blocks for brain and nerve cells, helps blood flow, decreases blood ‘clumping’, reduces inflammation, and more.
-Erythropoietin – promotes red blood cell production (increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood), protects the kidneys, prevents anemia, protects brain cells and tissue against hypoxia (lack of oxygen) and ischemia (restricted blood flow). NOTE: The main reason athletes do ‘blood-doping’ (re-injecting blood back into their bodies) is to increase erythropoietin in the blood.
-Hyaluronic acid has received widespread positive publicity. Even ABC’s PrimeTime did a special on it titled, “Fountain of Youth”.
Whether or not hyaluronic acid is what Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon was searching for, is up for debate. (We believe it is only one component of many in the quest for “eternal youth”. The Protocol contains most of the remaining components, making up the powerful synergistic approach to slowing down and even reversing the aging process.)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) has been shown to have the following properties:
HA holds water in the body.
HA acts as a lubricant in the heart valves.
HA is the spongy shock absorber at the ends of bones.
HA holds most of the moisture in the skin.
HA makes up 80 percent of the human eye.
HA provides a barrier against the spread of infection.
HA helps to erase fine facial aging lines and wrinkles.
HA can produce scarless wound healing.
HA has antioxidant properties.
HA detoxifies the body.
HA provides form and shape to the body.
-Phospholipids, proteoglycans (promotes healthy joints and cartilage), nucleotides (RNA and DNA anti-aging properties), prostaglandins (lipid regulator), polyamines (assists DNA replication), gangliosides (promotes memory and learning functions), and so many, many more.
Time and space simply does not allow us to present to you all the incredible nutrients found in Royal Velvet, along with their amazing benefits. There simply is no other food source on earth that contains this many different beneficial life-enhancing nutrients.
There are so many testimonies of people seeing dramatic age-reversing benefits, such as grey hair returning to normal color, wrinkles disappearing, body shape more like a person 30 years younger, brain and mental changes, joy, better memory, and on and on. How can this be?
Royal Velvet is famous for many things, but probably ONE of the most dramatic things it can do is reverse the aging process.
One of the top cancer doctors in the world, Dr. James Forsythe, has written a book (published in 2012) describing how you can reverse the aging process. Suzanne Somers (“The Face” of perpetual youthfulness and anti-aging in America) wrote the forward to the book.
“Anti-Aging Cures – Your Key to the REAL Fountain of Youth – Life Changing Secrets To Reverse The Effects of Aging”.
In his book, Dr, Forsythe mentions a few ways you can actually reverse the aging process. Royal Velvet is THE easiest (no injections), most cost effective (nothing comes close), and powerful way to reverse the aging process. Period. (it does more than reverse the aging process, it repairs damage, improves brain function, strengthens the body…)
For one of the premiere doctors in the world to write a book about the “secrets” to the fountain of youth, staking his reputation on what he promotes, you know that Royal Velvet is the real thing. Thousands upon thousands of seniors (and “middle-aged” people) have seen the astounding results using Royal Velvet. For less than $100 per month and only 4 minutes per day, seniors can receive dramatic life-changing benefits from the use of Royal Velvet.
Can we get a bit ‘preachy’ with you? If you are over the age of 35, PLEASE think about this:
You have a choice.
Do you want to live a nice, long, active, healthy, vibrant life – up until the day you simply pass away from natural causes?
Can you imagine a life full of energy, mental clarity, health, and youthfulness? Playing with your grandchildren and great grandchildren with the same vim and vigor you did with your own children? Looking AND feeling decades younger? Traveling the world, hiking, kayaking, boating, biking and more without the typical hindrances associated with “old age”?
Or do you want to spend the last years of your shortened life suffering, languishing in a “nursing home”, gazing out a window, not recognizing your loved ones, medicated to keep you docile – until you die of some dreaded disease?
You do have a choice.
The simplest, most cost effective, and powerful way to reverse the affects of aging, repair damage in your body, and dramatically increase your health and vitality now and for your future is using Royal Velvet.
It is NOT a drug. It is not a theory. It is not expensive. It has no harmful side effects.
It IS the most powerful anti-aging product in the world. And it has a plethora of other MAJOR benefits besides slowing down and REVERSING the aging process.
As stated before, Royal Velvet can do the following amazing things:
Promotes thicker denser bones. Helps prevent fractures.
Boosts brain functions. Better memory. Increased intelligence. Mental clarity.
Balances your blood sugar levels.
Improves energy, endurance, stamina.
Provides deeper more restful sleep. Feel vitalized upon awakening.
Promotes a youthful appearance. Fewer wrinkles. Smoother skin. Healthy glow to your skin. Fewer blemishes and age spots.
Boosts thicker hair. Less grey.
Improves body tone. Fat loss for overweight people. Thicker denser muscles. Healthy weight GAIN for people who are too thin.
Promotes a better mood. More joy – sense of well-being. Handle stress better.
Improves hearing, eyesight, taste, smell, and feeling.
Balances and improves your bodily functions.
Promotes improved cardiac function – all around.
Decreases aches and pains, stiffness and immobility.
Helps prevention of injuries through stronger bodily functions.
Improves hand eye coordination (better golf game, tennis, knitting, sewing…)
What more could a person want from a nutrient dense natural food supplement?
Who benefits most from taking Royal Velvet?
Athletes, senior citizens, those with illnesses, students, ANY athlete who may get or has had a concussion, overweight and obese people, stressed and sad people, people that are extremely fatigued and tired all the time, people in pain, people that do not sleep well, people with current or past injuries, people with addictions (drugs, sugar, nicotine, junk food…), women with hormone problems, men with libido problems, and teenagers with behavioral problems.
Does Royal Velvet work for everyone?
Royal Velvet DOES “work” for everyone. How so, you may ask? You are human. All human beings have tens of trillions of cells that desperately need the nutrients found in Royal Velvet. Human cells all have a FUNCTION. Everything that goes right OR wrong with your health takes place at the cellular level. Cells only need to “consume” three things: oxygen, water, and nutrients. The major cause of all the things that go wrong is a lack of these three things. When it comes to nutrients, there are dozens of reasons why most people are malnourished, including you. The main ones are: The food you eat is simply nutrient deficient. You do not absorb nutrients efficiently due to a clogged or toxic colon. You use supplements made with synthetic vitamins or nutrients that cause malnutrition. Royal Velvet bypasses the gastrointestinal tract and delivers 97%+ of the nutrients into your blood stream in less than one minute. These include every amino acid, an abundant amount of minerals, glycosaminoglycans, fatty acids, phospholipids, proteoglyclans, nucleotides, and the amazing growth factors – just to name a few. Can you get this many naturally occurring nutrients into your body through any other source – even a hundred other sources? Answer: you can’t. Take $10,000 and purchase all the health food, the supplements, the herbs – anything – and try to duplicate the benefits of just two bottles of Royal Velvet per month. You can’t even come close. It is impossible.
Are there any contraindications (reasons why people should NOT) use Royal Velvet?
No. After tens of thousands of customers and more than a dozen years, we have not heard of any viable information, research, or antidotal information that would cause us to believe that Royal Velvet can harm someone. But like ANYTHING, should you have a “reaction” of any kind after first using the product, we would recommend that you immediately discontinue using the product and contact us with your concerns.
We do recommend that people start taking Royal Velvet at the age of 13 or so. We have, however, received reports from parents who have successfully given it to their small children for various ailments. But as we have stated many times on this website, we can NOT tell you the truth about any diseases that Royal Velvet can prevent, treat, or cure due to strict government regulations.
Are the deer harmed in harvesting the antler velvet?
New Zealand is the only country in the world, through its government regulatory bodies that can ensure:
The deer roam freely in wide open fields, eating only organic plants.
The deer are not harmed in the velveting.
Velveting is done by certified specially trained people.
Velveting is properly timed for the highest concentration of nutrients.
Velveting is done in standardized hygienic conditions.
Velveting is overseen by animal rights activists and veterinarians.
Royal Velvet antler comes only from New Zealand.
Continue reading for greater details about the cruelty-free process.
NOTE: Not all antler velvet products are processed cruelty-free.
Our antler velvet extract is a special proprietary formula. We guarantee that our extract is cruelty-free.
Male stags of the cervid family (elk, deer, reindeer, moose, and caribou) grow antlers every year. They also fall off and then regrow every year, year after year. There is one purpose for the antlers, and that is to use as a fighting weapon for dominance over other male stags to ‘win’ the honor of copulating with the harem of females.
The ‘losers’ of these violent battles are many times seriously injured and some even die. Removing the antlers months before they would naturally drop off helps prevent these battles from ever occurring.
Our extract comes only from New Zealand, which has the highest and strictest standards in the world for velvetting. It is a huge industry for New Zealand, which is one of the reasons they are so committed to the health and longevity of the stags, including the antler removal process. Healthy, strong, disease-free and injury-free animals aid in the success of their business.
Anyone who has been to New Zealand understands the prominence of the natural, healthy lifestyle that permeates their society on all levels. This culture of natural health and harmony with nature extends to the velvetting industry.
When the antlers are removed, a licensed and specially trained veterinarian does the procedure, under the watchful eye of animal rights and welfare activists. The National Velvetting Standards Body of New Zealand has a very strict code of practice that makes sure the stags are not harmed in any way and the entire procedure is accomplished quickly, painlessly, and with optimal sanitary conditions.
This code was developed by animal welfare organizations in conjunction with the New Zealand Veterinarian Association.
Once the antlers have been removed, the stags are immediately released into open range areas free from stags with antlers, for their safety.
No New Zealand red deer are killed or harmed in the velvet collecting process in which we get our special proprietary extract.
Blake Sawyer, the founder and CEO of Royal Velvet, as well as the one who developed and formulated Royal Velvet, has not eaten a 4-legged animal in over 40 years. He equates using antler velvet with wearing wool clothing. Sheep continue to grow wool, year after year. Using that wool as a source of clothing benefits humans. Taking good care of the sheep due to its human benefits is a natural thing. The deer stags grow antlers, year after year. Taking good care of the stags is a natural thing, as they benefit us in ways that no other living creature, animal or plant, anywhere in the world, can.
