Does Deer Antler Velvet Work As Well For Women?
A world class athlete Janene Harker has achieved a unique feat in athletics. Janene has been the New Zealand representative in Judo, water polo, the surf life-saving world championship, and the women's wave skiing event from 1996 to 1998.
While based in Australia she trains to defend her world titles and attributes New Zealand deer antler velvet as a primary factor in keeping her in top competitive condition. According to Janene, she is able to workout with very little rest in between the workout sessions and engage in her workouts with greater intensity. On the average she is eight to ten-years-older than her training partners, yet performs as well, if not better, than the younger athletes.
Also, Janene attributes an increase in strength during weight lifting to the velvet deer antler. According to Janene her strength in the gym has improved due to her work commitments. She does about two weight sessions per week. This is really only enough to maintain strength. However, she has seen an increase in the weights she is moving. She definitely recommends deer velvet to anyone who wants a healthy lifestyle.
