Placenta is an embryonic tissue formed during pregnancy from the cells of the fetus. The unique biological compounds in placenta ensure that the fetus is supplied with the necessary nutrients and oxygen needed for successful growth. Chinese anti-aging and restorative formulations have often relied upon placenta as a primary ingredient in formulations designed to rejuvenate the body. Deer placenta has been accepted as the premier source of placenta. Deer is considered to be a “higher order” animal, and deer placenta very closely resembles human placenta chemically. It is extraordinarily nourishing and is completely safe to consume.

Who Can Use This Formula
Deer Placenta is the quintessential Jing restorative tonic. The placenta we use is cleaned, boiled New Zealand Deer Placenta. To appreciate placenta, you have to understand Jing, our fundamental life force. Jing is the primary energy of life. It is closely associated with the aging process. The quantity of Jing determines both our life-span and the ultimate vitality of our life. We are given a certain amount of Jing by our parents when we are born. We deplete our Jing through our living. When we run low on Jing, we die. Because of its original role of nurturing new life, placenta is considered to be the most profound substance for replenishing Jing. At conception, Jing of the mother and father merge and become one in the womb. This united essence creates an energy which forms the foundation of the new human being’s life. It is called pre-natal Jing. During pregnancy, the fetus relies upon the mother to nurture and protect the pre-natal Jing. The placenta is the source of this nourishment. Taking deer placenta as a deep Jing restorative supplement is like plugging yourself into the wall socket and recharging your life battery. Deer placenta provides certain substances that have been shown to have a profound positive influence on the aging process.
IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1) is a protein that promotes tissue growth, organ health, and healthy blood sugar levels. Almost every cell in the human body is affected by IGF-1, especially cells in muscle, cartilage, bone, liver, kidney, nerves, skin, and lungs. In addition to the beneficial insulin-like effects, IGF-1 can also regulate cell growth and development, especially in nerve cells, as well as cellular DNA synthesis. IGF-1 mediates most of the growth-promoting and metabolic effects of growth hormone. Our body’s demand for IGF-1 never decreases, but aging is accompanied by a loss of IGF-1. As our IGF-1 levels decrease, the physical exuberance and vitality that accompany youthfulness also recede. IGF-1 is a natural constituent of deer placenta, where it is found in high levels (IGF-1 is also found in deer antler). It is assumed that the deer placenta IGF-1, being a very large molecule, when consumed orally, is digested in the small intestines and broken down into amino acids and other components. The complete set of components provided by deer placenta of the IGF-1 may be used to enhance innate IGF-1 production. Deer placenta’s complete amino acid profile is extraordinarily close to that of humans. And deer placenta is rich in hyaluronic acid, an essential component in many tissues of the body. Hyaluronic acid helps to support healthy skin, eyesight and joint function. A 150 pound man has roughly half an ounce of hyaluronic acid in his body, one third of which is turned over (degraded and must be re-supplied or re-made) every day.
