Can some of the rednecks on the board tell me about the enhancement effects of Deer Antlers?
Same basic effects as Rhino horn.
And that is?
Link and bump for the rednecks.

only if you will tell us about the enhancement effects of being a douchebag.
"Crito, I owe a cock to Asclepius; will you remember to pay the debt?"
It's a mental thing. All in the head.
That doesn't even make sense. Try again
You actually grow antlers? No thanks.

its bunk stuff that does nothing.
Effect of elk velvet antler supplementation on the hormonal response to acute and chronic exercise in male and female rowers.
Syrotuik DG, MacFadyen KL, Harber VJ, Bell GJ.
Faculty of Physical Educatin and Recreation, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.
To examine the effects of elk velvet antler supplementation (EVA) combined with training on resting and exercise-stimulated hormonal response, male (n = 25) and female (n = 21) rowers ingested either EVA (560 mg/d) or placebo (PL) during 10 wk of training. VO(2max), 2000 m rowing time, leg and bench press strength were determined before and after 5 and 10 wk of training. Serum hormone levels were measured prior to and 5 and 60 min after a simulated 2000 m rowing race. VO(2max)and strength increased and 2000 m times decreased similarly (P < 0.05) with training. There was no significant difference between the EVA and PL group for any hormonal response. Testosterone (males only) and growth hormone (both genders) were higher 5 min after the simulated race (P < 0.05) but returned to baseline at 60 min. Cortisol was higher 5 and 60 min compared to rest (both genders) (P < 0.05) and was higher 60 min post-exercise following 5 and 10 wk of training. It appears that 10 wk of EVA supplementation does not significantly improve rowing performance nor alter hormonal responses at rest or after acute exercise than training alone.

I have no idea if Deer Antlers work or not, but you do realize that the medical profession claimed for decades that they had no proof that steroids helped to build muscle/strength.
I believe the main cause for this was due to the fact that that they were not using dosages during research that juicers were actually using in the gym.
I would assume the Antlers work like Androstein-they don't.

say that again.
It is a pubmed study. The conclusion of it is this:
"It should also be noted that research on actual deer antler velvet has indicated no changes in hormone levels. Thus, deer antler velvet does not alter hormonal responses to any extent beyond exercise alone."
A lot of "bro-science" & gym chemistry on DAV have helped its popularity.
If our team was taking the stuff, you might hear a rumor of it making cocks bigger....just say'n.

Antlers definitely have an enhancing affect. I think it adds height and balance - a more haughty appearance.
It also helps with the lady deer as the bigger the rack the better the likelihood of getting the best mates.
Hmm, same way the dears look at it
Nada according to John's Hopkins doc in ESPN article.
