    Yep I've taken 1 g orally everyday for about 4 weeks now together with topical minoxidil. Sadly it doesn't seem to do much of anything for me in regards to beard growth, I haven't seen any new vellus hairs or any faster transition from vellus to terminal hairs.

    I think I'll stop he shou wu for now as I don't feel any benefits from it and one of the main compounds, emodin, has potent 5-ar inhibiting effects which could potentially mean that the hair follicles have a harder time to go from vellus to terminal Emodin Has 5ar Inhibitor Properties, So Does Riboflavin

    It seems like nothing works except for minoxidil + optimizing androgen levels and avoiding things that mess with DHT and androgen receptors. Luckily I don't seem to get any side effects from the foam version of minoxidil so I'll stick with that regimen for now
