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.

The controversy with this is that there may be substances within the harvested velvet that are not permitted by the sport.

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.
