Viviscal was originally developed by Dr. Allan Lassus and launched in Finland in October 1992. It has gone through a series of clinical tests and these studies have been published in Europe and Latin America.
The product range consists of tablets, shampoo, conditioner and scalp lotion. The ingredients are completely natural with no unpleasant side effects. The nutritional factors that activate hair growth are complemented by the Viviscal extract mixture, a combination of vitamin C, silica compounds, and a highly concentrated marine protein.
Most of the participants in the clinical studies had used other treatments without success. However, their success rate with Viviscal was extremely good especially in the early stages of hair loss.
Effects of Viviscal
Not only does it help to stop hair loss but it also encourages new growth by activating resting follicles. It also has a beneficial effect on skin and nails. It is suitable for both men and women.
Viviscal is extremely effective in treating the milder form of patchy baldness, alopecia areata. Even in the case of alopecia totalis or total baldness, good results have been obtained. The results achieved in the treatment of hereditary baldness, androgenic alopecia, in both young and middle-aged men is also very encouraging.
What makes it truly unique is that it actually helps to remove internal barriers that block the flow of nutrients to the scalp. The follicle is surrounded by tissues, which block the passage of some of the essential nutrients for hair growth. Not only does Viviscal provide more nourishment; it also hydrates and rejuvenates the scalp in a way that simple vitamins and ordinary proteins cannot.
One 500 mg tablet of Viviscal contains:
- Natural Extract Mixture of Marine Origin 300 mg
- Acerola Extract (corresp. to Vitamin C 30 mg) 120 mg
- Silica Compound 30 mg
- Microcrystalline Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate and Black Currant Flavour.
Q: WHEN DO MOST USERS SEE RESULTS?
A: Generally, after 4-6 months of use. This is because hair is a slow reactor; ask anyone who has had anaesthesia, or a major trauma. Both of these cause thinning, but usually several months after the incidents.The Viviscal nutrients accumulate slowly, carefully, in your system. After a time, and depending on the speed of your metabolism, it reaches a threshold point, and the change is dramatic.
Q: ARE THERE ANY HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS?
A: No! The tablet contains no drugs, no hormones, and no industrial by-products. It has been on the market in Europe for over half a decade, with only positive results, and is manufactured under GMP-certified conditions.
Q: WILL VIVISCAL HELP MY HAIR IN OTHER WAYS?
A: Absolutely! To begin with, it is much stronger and healthier, because of an increased level of beta-carotene. Our clients also report increased thickening; better lustre; and an increase in softness and malleability.
Q: HOW DOES IT WORK?
A: The process itself is proprietary, but basically active ingredient not only carries nutrients, it also distributes them in a unique way. It actually works to loosen the barriers around the follicles, which ordinarily prevent a vast amount of essential vitamins and proteins from getting through. It is one of many things which make this supplement unique.
Q: IS THE TABLETS FOR MEN, OR WOMEN? DO THEY WORK FOR ETHNIC HAIR?
A: The tablets are for men and women. They works as well with ethnic hair as with any other type.
However, we do not recommend that people allergic to fish, seafood or Acerola nor pregnant women take the product without consulting their doctor. It should also be noted that patients with a condition of greasy seborrheic dermatitis should refrain from taking Viviscal until their dermatitis is cured.
