Viviscal Man review
Viviscal is one of the most popular brands of dietary supplements for promoting hair growth. popular for its capabilities to limit hair loss and thinning. Its most famous product Viviscal Extra Strength is primarily meant to help women against hair loss. But they also have another line of products specially formulated for the men.
What is Viviscal Man ?
Viviscal Man is a hair loss treatment pill that you take to fight male pattern baldness. Turns out there are many Viviscal products- Viviscal shampoos ect. but in this article I’m going to review Viviscal for men, the hair loss pill, because that’s what the research is on.
Total carbs <1 g, Vitamin C 30 mg, Zinc 8 mg, Amino Mar Complex 452.9 mg. Horsetail 24.5 mg, Flaxseed extract 50 mg.
I did like that the Men’s version did not contain iron. While a healthy mineral, too much iron might not be good for us.
How does it work ?
Viviscal for men is a perfect alternative for a drug called finasteride without any of side effects. It is 100% drug-free, and it works by using a combination of vitamins and natural supplements that are believed to counter the DHT effects on the scalp in order to strengthen the hair follicles.
This blend of herbs and vitamins includes Horsetail Extract, Flax Seed Extract, Zinc and Vitamin C, all of which have been known to have positive effects on hair quality, health, and growth.
The most dominant ingredient in Viviscal is proprietary marine protein complex, known as AminoMar. This component is exclusive to Viviscal products; no other company possesses it. and it is the product of over a quarter of a century of intensive scientific research. According to the ingredients list, some of the components in this proprietary mix are shark powder and mollusk powder.
AminoMar combined with the vitamin blend work together to simultaneously reduce the levels of DHT in the scalp. thus reduce the underlying causes of excessive hair shedding in men. In addition to this, they’re also able to nourish your existing hair, especially during active or anagen growth phase of the standard hair growth cycle.
What is the difference between Viviscal Man and Viviscal Extra Strength for Women
Both products contain exactly the same amount of clinically proven and patented AminoMar. However, Viviscal Man has flaxseed as an additional ingredient. Flaxseed is loaded with omega three amino acids and is considered to be one of the best natural DHT blockers.
This product has about 15% less Zinc than Viviscal Extra Strength. Also, Viviscal for men does not contain Biotin and Iron. Those are included in Viviscal Extra Strength because women commonly need more of those minerals than men.
Does ViviScal Man Work?
Viviscal does appear to have various studies to “prove” that it grows hair or slows hair loss. however only two of those studies appear to be peer reviewed. While those studies appear to be well done, I’d like to see a bit more. I’m honestly not sure if Viviscal works or not although from the people’s comments, some people are saying it does work. If Viviscal is going to work, it seems that at least 3-6 months of treatment will be needed before you can know for sure.
Are There any Side Effects From Using Viviscal for Men?
Viviscal is a 100% drug-free hair growing product and is considered to be safe to use. To date, there are not any known harmful side effects.
However, people suffering from fish allergies, vegans and vegetarians may choose to avoid this product. since Aminomar, the primary ingredient, is mostly fish protein. This product is also not recommended for people who’re below 18 years of age. And patients undergoing chemotherapy or any other cancer treatment.
Always consult your doctor if you considering taking nutritional supplements especially if you are already under any medication or treatment.
Two tablets per day, ideally one in the morning, and one in the evening after meals. For best results, it is recommended that this supplements are taken in addition to a healthful diet of high-quality protein.
