Before Super Bowl XLVII, Sports Illustrated reported that Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis Lewis sought help from a company called Sports With Alternatives To Steroids (S.W.A.T.S), which says its deer-antler spray and pills contained a naturally occurring banned product connected to human growth hormone.

S.W.A.T.S headquarters in Fultondale, Ala. was raided on Friday afternoon by investigators with the Alabama Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Office, according to AL.com reporter Carol Robinson.  According to the report, S.W.A.T.S was raided because of “numerous serious and willful violations of Alabama’s deceptive trade practices act.”

Authorities seized $200,000 in cash and vehicles along with implementing a temporary restraining order that allows court appointed receivers to take over the business and all company assets.

Lewis denied any connection with S.W.A.T.S and said he was “agitated” by the reports linking him to performance-enhancing drugs before the final game of his 17-year career.

THis is a bunch of bullCHIT..this Attorney General is grand standing...plain and simple.  When big brother can come in and shut down a business where there are no complaints from the PUBLIC, that is wrong. This is all about publicity for the AG.

There seems to be a lot of fuss about something that occurs naturally in milk. I take several Chinese Herbs from a company called Immortal Herbs (www.immortalherbs.com) and their Energy and Longevity formulas have deer antler in them.  Been taking them since March, I'm 39 years old, I am on my 30 triathlon, I'm doing a 500 mile enduro motorcycle race, and climbing Mount Rainier as well before the year ends.  I also do A LOT of offshore sailing.  I have taken deer antler and every other chinese herbs under the sun and it has had a huge positive effect on my life.  I perform better.  My POINT!  There is very little research on Chinese Herbs compared to Western Medicine.  So some say it works, others say it doesn't.  I am 100% certain it works....same with deer antler.
