Our Deer Velvet Experience

The NZVel Story.

The story of NZVel starts right back when I was just a child living on a Deer farm in Oxford, North Canterbury, New Zealand. My parents owned the farm and from a very young age I was keen to help out.

I always remember how majestic the deer were and how I enjoyed working with these amazing animals...

Our family farm had been supplying velvet to the Asian market for many years but I didn’t really understand its amazing medicinal and healing properties until much later when I injured my ankle playing rugby. It required surgery and the surgeon told me that I wouldn’t be able to play rugby for 3 months.

So I started taking Deer Velvet a few weeks before the operation and my healing after the operation was rapid - I was back running and playing rugby in just 6 weeks.

That was great news but even more amazing was that my psoriasis (a skin aliment) from which I had suffered from for many years, started to disappear and eventually totally disappeared. It is still completely gone to this very day! Not to mention my immunity and lack of visits to Doctors after starting to take Deer Velvet.

So my wife Adele and I decided that the benefits of Deer Antler Velvet needed to be shared and we started our NZVel Deer Antler Velvet company to offer people a natural product to help enhance their lives the way it had enhanced ours.

The feedback we have received is incredible and is one of the biggest highlights of running this business.

The business grew as did our range of products as we learnt more about the power of Deer Antler Velvet. We now offer athletic products along with general health and well being products, and pet products. The introduction of the pet products coincided with pet owners looking for a more holistic solution for their pets aliments than expensive synthetic pain relief products.

The results have been amazing and from many walks of life. It is very humbling to be able to offer our clients a product that gives them and their pet a better quality of life. The feedback is always welcome and we enjoy all the stories such as an elderly lady getting relief from arthritis in her hands and being able to knit again, to how Lulu the dog can now jump back on the couch – lucky Lulu!

My wife Adele and I are very passionate about our NZVel Deer Antler Velvet products and the benefits they offer to our clients and their pets. Being very active ourselves, and having a well used bodies we know just how frustrating injuries and lack of mobility can be. Also as avid dog lovers we know how much it hurts to see them uncomfortable.

We look forward to hearing more wonderful stories of a happier and healthier life for you and your pets with NZVel.
