A common question we encounter is whether deer antler velvet supplements are safe for women. More specifically, we also have many people ask us if taking antler velvet products is safe for pregnant women. Like all of these questions, our primary recommendation is to consult a licensed physician. That said, our non-clinical recommendation is to not take deer antler velvet if you are pregnant.
Taking Deer Antler Velvet During Pregnancy
Part of running Pure Velvet as a business, is staying up to date on the latest studies showing proof that deer antler velvet lives up to its health claims. That said, there are no clear studies focused on deer antler velvet supplementation during human pregnancy.
We personally know of females who have supplemented with deer antler velvet sprays during their pregnancy, and to our knowledge, they have not had any issues with their pregnancy or child. However, we believe deer velvet, like many things that are typically healthy for you, should be avoided while a woman is pregnant.
Pregnancy is a vulnerable time for a woman and her baby. While pure deer antler velvet is natural and organic (Pure Velvet is at least), we still recommend that antler velvet supplements, along with many other products, are avoided during female pregnancy.
As always, please consult a physician before making any decision to take or not to take a supplement.
