I met Master herbalist George Lamoureux founder of Jing Herbs a few years ago and was impressed with his knowledge of Chinese Medicine and Herbs. He is truly an inspiration! If you call Jing Herbs, George will take the time to listen and not just “sell” you a product. He truly is on a journey to encourage natural healing. If you have the honor to meet George, you will walk away with an abundance of information valuable to your health and path to healing.
George has been a tonic and clinical herbalist for two decades. He holds a Masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from the prestigious Yo San University and holds certification from The National Certification Committee for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. George studied under the well known Taoist Masters Daoshing and Maoshing Ni. During his studies with the Ni brothers, he was the recipient of many of the Ni family traditions handed down in an unbroken line of 38 generations of Chinese physicians.
Deer Antler is truly one of nature’s miraculous examples of regeneration and sustainability. In the spring antlers naturally grow at an astounding rate of almost 2 cm daily. At approximately day 60 of the growing cycle, the deer are gathered together from the free range, and the antlers are harvested under the auspices of licensed and trained veterinarians. After a few days, when it has been determined that the animals are all in good health, they are returned the free range for the remainder of the year.

Minerals and Trace Minerals
• Calcium(Ca)- provides structure for healthy bones and teeth, it is also an essential element for nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and blood clotting. It is also interesting to note in the Taoist tradition that this mineral has a calming effect on the spirit.
• Copper(Cu)-necessary for the production of red blood cells, bones and nerves.
• Iron(Fe)- essential for the ability of red blood cells to transport oxygen to every cell in the body.
• Manganese(Mn)- essential for the production and development of bones and connective tissue, and for the normal functioning of the central nervous system.
• Magnesium(Mg)- very important in making calcium bio-available and essential in metabolic reactions and the storing and releasing of energy in the cells.
• Phosphorus(P)- another element of bones and teeth, and is a component of the vast majority of metabolic reactions.
• Potassium(K)- essential to all nerve and muscle functions.
• Selenium(Se)-one of the bodies’ most powerful antioxidants and essential to a strong immune system.
• Sodium(Na)- essential in osmotic pressure regulation and nerve and muscle function.
• Sulfur(S)- an essential component of hormones, vitamins, proteins , amino acids and insulin.
• Zinc(Zn)- an important mineral in optimal immune function also part of the enzymes involved in digestion and respiration and it is necessary for normal wound healing and healthy skin.
There are several proteins found in deer antler, but the major one is Collagen in the forms of Type I,II,III,IV,VI and X. This protein is a major component of bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. You can see why Deer Antler Essence would be a perfect addition to an athletic regimen. Amino Acids Amino acids are the building blocks the body uses to construct proteins and are the structural materials in the cell. They are directly involved in the growth and repair of all tissue in the body. Deer antler contains both essential and non-essential amino acids, they are: Alanine, Asparagine, Aspartic acid, Arginine, Cysteine, Glutamine, Glycine, Glutamic acid, Histidine, Isoleucine, Lysine, Leucine, Phenylalanine, Methionine, Orthinine, Serine, Proline, Taurine, Tryptophan, Threonine, Tyrosine and Valine.
When we are young, the concentration of growth factors is relatively high which promotes lean muscle mass and low body fat. But as we age, the production of growth factors slowly begins to decline and the muscles begin to atrophy and body fat begins to be deposited especially for inactive individuals. The growth factors found in deer antler are the following:
• Insulin-like Growth Factor 1(IGF-1) and Factor 2 (IGF-2). Has an anabolic effect on muscle mass, helps maintain normal fat distribution, helps promote bone health and nerve health. Insulin-like growth factors are also involved in the metabolism of glucose.
• Epidermal Growth Factor(EGF). Have an effect on the growth and maintenance of bones, promoting protein and fat metabolism, stimulating cartilage growth, and thickening and lengthening bones in children. EGFs also have growth promoting action on the skin.
• Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF). This growth factor is responsible for priming the cell to enter the cycle of cell division; it also assists other growth factors to stimulate and regulate the re-growth of blood vessels to wound sites and damaged bone.
These endogenous pyrogens belong to a family of chemical messengers called cytokines. Cytokines stimulate the immune response and activate the phagocyte cells.
• Interleukin 1- T cell activation by macrophages, fever induction, inflammation promotion.
• Interleukin 2- T and B cell differentiation and mitosis.
• Interleukin 6- Stimulates the proliferation and killing activities of T cells.
• Interleukin 12- promotes the proliferation of Natural Killer cells and promotes cell-mediated.
