FREQUENTLYASKED QUESTIONS

How will Viviscal™ help me?

The Viviscal™ Hair Growth Programmes have been specifically developed to nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth from within. Viviscal™ contains the exclusive Amino Mar®, a marine complex that supplies vital nutrients needed to help maintain normal healthy hair growth. The efficacy of Viviscal™ is supported by 10 clinical trials conducted over 25 years. Viviscal™ is sold globally across several countries. *

How does Viviscal™ work?

Viviscal™ normally works in four stages over a 6-month period, but most users can start to see an improvement after only 3-4 months. To help hair grow healthily, hair follicles need to be nourished from the inside. The nutrients provided by Viviscal™ benefit your hair during the Anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. The hair follicle receives the nutrients from the bloodstream as it is attached to the dermal papilla deep in the dermal layer of the scalp.

  • Stage 1 (up to month 2): Viviscal™ works to nourish the hair follicles from within (as hair and nails are both made of kertain, users may first notice that their nails are stronger and growing faster after 3-4 weeks).

  • Stage 2 (months 2 & 3): Viviscal™ strengthens and promotes the growth of existing hair.

  • Stage 3 (months 4 & 5): Promotes growth of hair where it has temporarily slowed down or stopped. These hairs may be thin or wispy at first, like baby hair. (Users may notice fine baby hairs growing, initially these may look like broken hairs, they are not, they are new growth. In the 6th month the hair becomes stronger, thicker, healthier and more vibrant.

Very often users do not notice the results themselves it is their hairdresser or a friend that comments on the improvements.

Will I need to take Viviscal™ forever?

We recommend taking the supplement for 6 months. Once the course is over, we suggest that you continue to take 1 supplement a day for 2-3 months and observe if the hair quality stays the same or if the shedding starts again. If the shedding restarts, we recommend you see your doctor to check if there is an underlying cause at play; very often if the underlying reason for your hair thinning is not being managed the excess shedding will continue.

Many Viviscal customers continue to take the supplement for their overall hair health.

What are the main differences between Viviscal™ Man and Viviscal™ Maximum Strength?

Viviscal™ Maximum Strength has been specifically developed for women while Viviscal™ Man has been specifically developed for men. Both formulations nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth from within

  • Viviscal™ Man has different AminoMar C™ concentration (453mg per tablet vs 300mg in Viviscal™ Maximum Strength)

  • Viviscal™ Man does contain Flax Seed Extract which is not in Viviscal™ Maximum Strength

  • Both supplements contain Zinc, but Viviscal Maximum Strength has slightly less (14.9mg per tablet as opposed to 15mg in each Viviscal Man supplement)

What is AminoMar C™?

AminoMar C™, the key active ingredient in Viviscal, is a groundbreaking, proprietary compound of marine extracts. Within Viviscal, AminoMar C™ is blended with horsetail extract, which contains naturally occurring silica. It is further fortified with Vitamin C, Iron, Niacin, Zinc and Biotin.

What are the origins of AminoMar C™?

A Professor from Scandinavia discovered from his study of the Inuits in the 1980’s that their great hair and skin was as a result of their fish and protein rich diet. He isolated the key protein molecules from the Inuits’ diet and it was from these origins that AminoMar C™ was created.

Does the AminoMar C™ contain Vitamin B12?

We do not include Vitamin B12 as a separate ingredient within Viviscal™. There may be naturally occurring Vitamin B12 within Viviscal™, sourced from other ingredients (mollusc in particular), but we have not tested vitamin B12 levels in the finished product.

Why is there Iron in Viviscal™ Maximum Strength?

Viviscal™ is constantly seeking to enhance and improve their Hair Growth Programmes based on new research findings and customer feedback. For this reason, the formulation was further enhanced with the inclusion of Iron and other known healthy hair ingredients such as Biotin and Zinc.

Iron is an essential mineral that has several important roles in the body. It helps to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body to all the cells. The amount of iron in Viviscal™ Maximum Strength (2 tablets) is 13.6 mg providing 97% of the EC Nutrient Reference Value. Thinning hair can be one of the visible symptoms of anaemia (iron deficiency).

If you are suffering from thinning hair, and you feel it may be related to the levels of iron within your body, we recommend that you visit your doctor to have your bloods tested. Discuss your lifestyle and diet to help them identify what the underlying causes might be. You can then check with your doctor if, having ascertained your overall health, it is suitable for you to take Viviscal™.
**Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

What function has the Vitamin C?

Vitamin C helps to absorb more iron into the blood, which, in turn, promotes better hair growth.There are 38.5 mg of Vitamin C per tablet in Viviscal™ Maximum Strength, 30mg of Vitamin C per tablet in Viviscal™ Man.

What function has the Silica?

Hair is collagen based and silica is absolutely essential for the body to create and maintain collagen. Silica is essential for healthy connective tissue. As we age, scientific measurements have shown that the human body retains less and less silica. Silica does not occur in sufficient amounts in a wide variety of foodstuffs. It is primarily found in natural oats, millet, barley, wheat and potatoes. Most of which are normally refined to a point where all the silica has been removed.
