If you haven’t at least heard a little buzz about Deer Antler Velvet spray and how it may or may not increase your muscle gains, you’re no doubt living under a rock.
But with all the hyped up useless products out there, and all the snake oil salesmen trying to sell them to you, you might want to stay put under your rock.
But if you have heard of deer antler velvet and/or you’re curious about it, read on.
What Is Jacked Antler?
Jacked Antler is a spray containing, among other things, deer antler velvet.
Supposedly, there’s a certain chemical found in the fuzzy outer covering of a male deer’s antlers when they’re growing that when taken by humans can:
- Increase strength.
- Boost your power and drive.
- Improve your post workout recovery.
- Promote fat loss.
- Bolster your athletic energy and endurance.
Who’s Using Jacked Antler?
If you believe what you read on the Jacked Antler website, professional athletes and their coaches swear by the stuff, as do both male and female celebrities.
They claim to send care packages containing Jacked Antler to famous athletes and other celebrities, hoping they’ll receive a ringing endorsement back.
I don’t know if I’d advertise that program.
If they’re sending this out for free, and nobody’s coming forward to endorse it, that’s not a good sign that Jacked Antler is anything to write home about.
How Does Jacked Antler Work?
IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Factor-1) is the key component to the success of Jacked Antler.
IGF is found naturally in the human body.
It encourages growth and repair while it controls several cell processes.
The IGF-1 in Jacked Antler is a chain of amino acids that stimulates muscle growth while protecting your organs and regenerating tissue.
It’s not exactly HGH, but it’s close.
It acts somewhat like a precursor to HGH.
Why Not Just Take HGH?
HGH, or human growth hormone, is becoming all the rage in anti-aging for the rich and famous.
It’s naturally secreted by the pituitary gland, but much like Testosterone, your body releases less and less of it as you age.
It’s been found that increasing the amount of HGH in your body can smooth wrinkled skin, provide energy, help you get a better night’s sleep, quicken the pace of recovery after workouts and injuries, and even improve your mood.
If you have enough money as well as access to the right doctors, you can get daily HGH injections to achieve all the above mentioned benefits.
Last I checked, it can cost upwards of $1000 a month, and it’s technically not approved for this kind of use.Most doctors won’t prescribe HGH injections for adults trying to stay young.
Jacked Antler Ingredients
So ordinary, everyday people turn to a supplement like Jacked Antler to reach that point of increased HGH the safer, less expensive way.
When researching the Jacked Antler formula, we came across a discrepancy, which leaves us unsure of what’s actually included.
The official website displays an image of the “Supplement Facts” presumably taken from the bottle label.
But the website separately offers a completely different list as well, leaving us confused about what’s really in the formula.
According to the Supplement Facts, Jacked Antlercontains:
- Deer Antler Velvet Extract which contains IGF-1 to promote the natural production of IGF and restore lost power.
- Rhodiola Rosea which helps the body respond appropriately in times of stress (such as during and after a workout.
- L-Theanine which is an amino acid that helps keep you calm in times of stress.
- Green Tea Extract which functions as an antioxidant to help prevent cell damage.
It also provides energy and has fat burning abilities.
- Tribulus Terrestris which may boost both energy and testosterone.
That’s what’s listed on what appears to be the Jacked Antler label.
But as part of the promotional part of the website, several other ingredients are listed alongside their purported benefits.
- Epimedium which they say boosts energy and reduces fatigue.
- L-Argninie which they reduces mental and physical stress and improves cognition.
- Eurycoma Longifoia which they say improves mental and physical performance and fights against depression.
- Stevia which they say in addition to its function as a sweetener, boosts your immune system and protects your heart.
Luckily, I have a bottle here that I had sent to me.
Here’s a photo of the label:
How To Use Jacked Antler
The recommended dose is 5 sprays taken both before and after your workout.
It’s expected that you see the best results after about 4 weeks, but you’ll start seeing some effect in just 3 or 4 days.
Where to Buy
At this point, the only way to purchase Jacked Antler is through their official website.
They do, however, offer a few different package options.
You can purchase one bottle (about a month’s supply) for $82.45. You can buy 3 bottles for $149.95. That basically works out to getting 3 for about the price of 2.
The third option is the free trial offer.The way it works is that you order a full size bottle and pay only $4.95 in shipping charges.From that moment, you have 20 days to contact Jacked Antler at 1-888-7939 and cancel your subscription.
If you don’t cancel, they’ll bill you $82.45 for your trial bottle, and they’ll automatically enroll you in their VIP Program, meaning that you’ll be sent and billed for a new bottle each month.
Free Trial Scam
This is commonly known as the “Free Trial Scam."Q I can’t even begin to tell you how many readers I hear from every day who’ve fallen prey to this kind of scam.
Usually, the terms are hidden on a separate web page, or written in superfine print, basically designed to be missed.
Jacked Antler is actually a little better than some others I’ve seen. At least they offer you options.
If you don’t want to get caught up in the free trial madness, you can simply order a one month “Starter Package” bottle, and you won’t be on the hook for anything else.
Pros and Cons
Advantages of Jacked Antler
- It’s easy to take.
If you can’t take pills or just don’t like to, Jacked Antler is great because it’s a spray.
- The free trial scam isn’t as bad as others I’ve seen.
Disadvantages of Jacked Antler
- Deer Antler Velvet has not been proven to do what Jacked Antler says it does.
IGF-1 is the active ingredient, but as far as we know at this point, IGF-1 is very unstable, so it’s highly unlikely that you’re getting its benefits from this spray.
- There’s conflicting ingredient information on the website. This is highly unprofessional.
I have to wonder why anyone would choose to do business with a company that leaves such a glaring error up on their website for all to see.
- It’s expensive.
- There are no independent Jacked Antler reviews from customers who’ve used it and had success.
People are excited about deer antler velvet in general because it’s an idea that does show some promise.
Unfortunately, at this point, it’s not really been shown to be effective, and Jacked Antler doesn’t instill confidence as a product.
Trying Jacked Antler would almost certainly be nothing more than a waste of money.

I've enjoyed it
I've been using Jacked Antler for a month now and personally I couldn't be more pleased with the product.The main benefit I've noticed is a significant decrease in DOMS.
Strength is up because of that, but I haven't seen insane muscle growth yet.
I also think you have it wrong when you talk about HGH.
I believe one of the main ways HGH works is actually by increasing IGF-1 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18500379) and getting straight to the IGF-1 allows for the targeting performance benefits.Regardless of this I will continue to use this product from what I've experienced.

2 MONTHS AND I LOVE IT
This is one of those products that really catches you by surprise.I thought at first "do I really just spray this under my tongue twice a day for more strength?" I just finished my second bottle of this stuff and I've got to say the results are amazing.
I cut my body fat by over 3%, likely due to the green tea extract in it.
My chest and arms are noticeably bigger.The biggest change is my mood in the gym and after.
I feel great, like my muscles really are feeding off the ingredients in the bottle and growing.
Thank you so much to the makers of this product!!!

I used their product, got no results. Then they charged me for over $300 worth of product I did not receive, and they did not refund my money when told about the mistake.
Do not do business with this company!
