The red deer antler is among the most rapidly growing of all mammalian tissue. It
grows as much as 2 cm per day, the red deer sheds and regenerates new antlers at
least once every year.
Protein growth factors in the antler NHAC MIC-1 stem cells have been shown to initiate
and accelerate cellular regeneration in other mammals. The growth factors stimulate
the development of the cellular superstructure necessary for the derma and other
organs to regenerate their own destroyed or depleted cells.
Major research is being done on ways to accelerate wound healing and other regenerative
These growth factors can stimulate aging skin to regenerate depleted elastin and
collagen and the scalp to regenerate new hair foccles. There are a number of applications
for regenerative skin and hair care.
