With the addition of our Tresse Rx supplement and vitamins, we have received a number of questions from patients regarding how these differ from Nutrafol or Viviscal.  First off, it is important to remember that the Tresse Rx healthy inside plan, is a comprehensive plan that consists of not just the Tresse Revitalizer and Tresse Fortifier supplements, but also the Tresse Prebiotic gut health powder.  When comparing to the Nutrafol or Viviscal, you really cannot include the Tresse Prebiotic gut health powder in the comparison, because that part of the plan is so different from what you get with Nutrafol or Viviscal, which is one of the reasons we love the Tresse Prebiotic.  Gut health plays such an important role in all aspects of our health, including our hair, the ingredients in the Tresse Prebiotic have been found to boost our immune system, soothe inflammation, and increase overall gut health.

What is great about the Tresse Revitalizer and Tresse Fortifier supplements is that they not only have many of the key ingredients found in Nutrafol and Viviscal, but they actually have even more ingredients that have been known to address the many causes of hair loss.

Ingredients Similar to Nutrafol
  • Ashwagandha Root Extract
  • Biotin
  • Marine Collagen
  • Resveratrol – Japanese Knotweed Root
  • Saw Palmetto
Ingredients Similar to Viviscal
  • Vitamin C
  • Biotin
  • Calcium
  • Marine Collagen
  • L-Cystine
  • L-Methionine

While Nutrafol and Viviscal are great supplements for hair health, there are still many important vitamins and nutrients that they do not have which have been incorporated into the Tresse Rx supplements. Below are some of the highlights:

Folic Acid

Folic acid can be found in the Tresse Revitalizer supplement. Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, which is a type of B Vitamin. As folic acid is mainly responsible for healthy cell growth and can be found in your scalp tissue and hair, it is widely believed that folic acid is important for the generation of new healthy hairs.


Magnesium can be found in the Tresse Fortifier supplement. Magnesium plays a key role in protein synthesis in our bodies. As roughly 80% of our hair is made up of protein, magnesium plays an important role in the development of key cells for the hair. Therefore, magnesium deficiency can have a direct effect on our hair. Lastly, Magnesium is known to help reduce stress and anxiety, which we know can negatively impact our hair.


Niacin can be found in the Tresse Revitalizer supplement.  Niacin is a B vitamin that is known to improve blood circulation, which is so important to hair health.  Increased blood circulation in the scalp allows for increased oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicle, which can extend the growth phase of the hair.

Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, can be found in the Tresse Revitalizer supplement.  Riboflavin plays an important role in hair growth by activating Vitamin B6 and niacin, which are two important vitamins for healthy hair development. The body stores only small amounts of riboflavin and riboflavin deficiency is known to cause hair loss.

Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 can be found in the Tresse Revitalizer supplement.  Vitamin B6 helps our hair in two ways.  First, Vitamin B6 plays a key role in protein synthesis, which is important for hair as protein makes up roughly 80% of our hair.  Secondly, Vitamin B6 plays an important role in the creation of neurotransmitters that regulate emotions, and it is widely believed that Vitamin B6 can help us manage stress and anxiety, which can negatively impact the health of your hair.
Vitamin E
Vitamin E can be found in the Tresse Fortifier supplement. Vitamin E is a well-known antioxidant, which protect cells from the damaging effects of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is known to play a role in premature hair loss. One study on the use of Vitamin E as a supplement for hair loss found that people with hair loss experienced a 34.5% increase in hair growth after supplementing with vitamin E for 8 months, while the placebo group had only a 0.1% increase.
