Performance Enhancement Goes to Antlers

This sounds like something out of a Chinese traditional medicine apothecary: deer antler velvet are harvested and then processed to become delivery agents for supplements that enhance athletic performance.

Nutraceuticals are a large business and unlike pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals have cool stories like this to market to consumers without the FDA oversight that constricts pharmaceuticals.
