From the article...what the heck is Deer Antler spray?
"You're familiar with HGH, correct? It's converted in the liver to IGF-1," Key explained, according to the Sports Illustrated report. "IGF-1, or insulin-like growth factor, is a natural, anabolic hormone that stimulates muscle growth. We have deer that we harvest out of New Zealand. Their antlers are the fastest-growing substance on planet Earth ... because of the high concentration of IGF-1.
"We've been able to freeze dry that out, extract it, put it in a sublingual spray that you shake for 20 seconds and then spray three [times] under your tongue. ... This stuff has been around for almost 1,000 years, this is stuff from the Chinese," Key said, according to the magazine.
Ok. That just makes this whole thing hilarious. Who cares if Ray Lewis or any other players have used this product. This whole 'Ray Lewis used a banned substance' this is a moot point!yes.
and yet SEC football players ( who will NEVER be mistaken for Mensa members ) continue to purchase/provide testimonials ( prolly paid to do so )
imagine that. HAHA.
Interesting. I guess I just assumed if it's already on the NFL's banned substance list, they'd have a way to check for it.He never failed a drug test because it's only detectable via blood testing, which the NFL does not currently use.
