Ever since a few high profile sports figures (think Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens) got caught for using (or being suspected of using) deer antler velvet supplements, more and more readers are asking me to look into them.
These growth hormone increasing, athletic performance improving products are becoming all the rage.
One that recently caught my attention is called Alpha Rax Xtreme.
It’s made by a company called INSTA_LABS, and it’s exclusively available online. Its claim to fame is that it’s the only deer antler velvet supplement that gets its primary ingredient from the Alpha Deer of the pack.
Let’s break Alpha Rax Xtreme down and see if it warrants the attention it’s been getting.
Alpha Rax Xtreme Benefits
The benefits promised by deer antler supplements are many, and Alpha Rax Xtreme is no exception.
With 5 sprays twice a day, you’ll see:
- Increased lean muscle mass.
- Loss of body fat.
- Notable energy increase.
- Quicker workout recovery.
- Boosted immune system.
- Increased overall vitality.
Alpha Rax Xtreme Ingredients
The Alpha Rax Xtreme formula starts with their unique Alpha Male Deer Antler Velvet extract.They are the only supplement that used the velvet from the oldest, most mature deer.
They claim this deer’s velvet is where you’ll find the most IGF-1, which is the active component in deer antler velvet.
IGF-1 is found in the body already, but by increasing levels of the growth factor so closely related to insulin, you get a better regulation of sugar, leading to fewer cravings and a more balanced response to stressors.
Increased IGF-1 is also related to anti-aging benefits like more energy and fewer wrinkles in your skin.
And we haven’t even touched on the benefits to athletic performance and endurance.
Increased IGF-1 is connected to all of this, which is why it, and deer antler velvet have been banned by most sports anti-doping agencies.
Supporting ingredients in the Alpha Rax Xtreme formula are:
- L-Arginine which is a precursor to nitric oxide.
When nitric oxide is increased, blood vessels open up to allow for improved blood flow.
Better blood flow provides increased oxygen and nutrient to cells and tissue throughout the body.
This leads to better athletic and sexual performance and often leads to improved cardiovascular functioning.
- Epimedium which acts similarly to L-Arginine in that it improves blood flow, and also has an aphrodisiac effect.
- Eurycoma Longifolia is thought to increase the amount of free testosterone by acting on Sex Hormone Binding Globulin.
SHBG attaches itself to testosterone molecules, making them essentially ineffective.
By decreasing SHBG, Eurycoma Longifolia increases free testosterone.
- Tribulus Terrestris is thought to increase natural testosterone production by increasing the release of luteinizing hormone.
LH signals the testes to produce an increased amount of testosterone.
What’s Different About Alpha Rax Xtreme?
There are lots of deer antler velvet supplements flooding the market lately, so if one hopes to be successful, they should probably have a hook.
In the case of Alpha Rax Xtreme, its that they’re the only ones using velvet from the ears of the alpha deer of the pack.
They harvest only from the most mature adult deer of the herd.
Each summer, male deer shed their antlers and grow a completely new set.
After the new set is fully developed, it sheds the velvet that covered them as they grew.
Alpha Rax Xtreme harvests this velvet only of the most mature deer.
This velvet contains the sought after IGF-1
How To Use Alpha Rax Xtreme
The recommended dose is 5 sprays of Alpha Rax Xtreme taken twice a day, once before your workout and once before bed.
Hormone production is most active while we sleep, which is why most testosterone and HGH boosting supplements recommend you use them at night.
Alpha Rax Xtreme Side Effects
While there are no guarantees, Alpha Rax Xtreme claims that they have had no reported side effects.
With that said, I wouldn’t be surprised to find that Alpha Rax Xtreme causes the occasional headache or bout with nausea.
Where to Buy
At this time, the only place you can purchase Alpha Rax Xtreme is online through their official website.
A single bottle is a 30 day supply and costs $47.97. You’ll save if you buy more than one at a time.Buying 6 bottles costs $199.97, working out to a cost of $33.33 per bottle.
The order page mentions a 30 day money back guarantee, but it’s a bit misleading.If you read carefully, you’ll see that you can only return unopened bottles in their original packaging for a refund.
If you’ve opened a bottle and used it, the guarantee doesn’t apply.
This doesn’t strike me as much of a money back guarantee.
Alpha Rax Xtreme Pros and Cons
Advantages of Alpha Rax Xtreme
- It comes in liquid form which is convenient for those who can’t or would rather not take pills.
- It uses velvet from mature deer.
- The formula includes some additional herbal and natural ingredients that may help with your hormone and performance profile.
Disadvantages of Alpha Rax Xtreme
- We couldn’t find any Alpha Rax Xtreme reviews from customers who’ve used it.
This is never a good sign.
- There’s no real money back guarantee.
Once you’ve opened the bottle, there’s no going back.
- There’s no real scientific evidence to support the claims that deer antler velvet does what they say it does or that mature antler velvet is any better than younger antler velvet.
Anecdotally, there seems to be evidence that deer antler velvet may have some benefit.
But the claims at this point are a little far fetched.
And Alpha Rax Xtreme hasn’t convinced me that if you were to try deer antler velvet, this would be the one to choose.

Have you used this supplement?
I have used it for approximately one month now, though i did not conduct a blind study of any kind I have found it has increased athletic function, though this could also be a placebo effect.
do not buy
In Short: I would NOT recommend this to a friend.
They send the first order free, and then the next order they charge you $120 a bottle when I asked them to cancel they wouldn't!! DO NOT BUY!!!
