The AminoMar Marine Complex is the key ingredient to this dietary supplement which is specially formulated to deliver essential nutrients to help coax hair growth from the inside. Also, the presence of Biotin in the list of ingredients is a welcome sight because this vitamin helps metabolize fats, carbs and amino acids that are needed for stronger hair. Vitamin C is also a good choice for this supplement because it promotes hair growth as well. Iron, on the other hand, can deliver more blood cells in this part of your body that will help hair follicles to produce stronger hair strands.
Although it’s not clearly stated on the manufacturer’s website, the label photo on Amazon indicates the manufacturer’s recommended dosage is two tablets per day, morning and night, with water, after a meal.

Guarantee & Feedback
Viviscal offers a 90-day money-back guarantee if you buy the supplement from its website or through this Viviscal call center. This means that you have three months to test the product and that if you are not happy with the outcome, you can always return it for a full refund.
As for customer feedback, the manufacturer’s website, as of the time of our research, showed it had received 1112 reviews. From our scanning of the first 50 of these reviews, all were five (out of five) star ratings. This somewhat stretches the credibility of these reviews, especially given that out of the over 2000 reviews on Amazon, 21% gave this product a negative rating (versus 67% positive).
Our Conclusive Review of Viviscal Extra Strength
After carefully studying the information that we have gathered for our Viviscal Extra Strength review, we believe that this product can help some women deal with their hair thinning/loss problems. We like that it makes use of ingredients that are known for their abilities to promote hair growth.
However, the price on the manufacturer’s website is high (almost double what it was on Amazon at the time of our review) and, because the company only accepts returns of product bought directly from it, this amounts to buying very expensive “return insurance”, not a policy we’re fond of. Also, the discrepancy in percentage of positive ratings between the manufacturer’s website (almost all) and Amazon (67%) is of concern.
