I've been taking He Shou Wu(the Na'vi Organics's product) since no more than 3 weeks, as I was reading some testimonials online about the faculty of this herb to developp beard growth. Some guys were saying that it has covered up the patchy zones of their beard. And I assure you that they didn't lie. Everyday I seem to have a little add to my beard than the day before. Hairs are darker than ever and patches are covering up greatly, at somes places hairs have never been growing, even in the influence of minoxidil, androgen receptor enhancers, dermaroller or even the strongly effective topical ginger juice. I've been shearching a lot about improving facial hair since some years and I think that i've finally found the answer to my quest. Beard is now very nearly full, progress seems to never stop and it have been only 3 weeks. I have no doubt that with a few months of it, I will be able to have a full, dark, dense, and thick covered beard. Like if I was moving from Keanu Reeves type beard to Leonidas.
By the way, this product also gave me the most enjoyable state of my life probably since my teen years (i'm 23, now). But you have to use the traditionnaly prepared form which removes the excess of emodin in it, toxic for the liver. The prepared form, on the contrary, is pretty good for the liver, and especially for kidneys. About hair growth, studies show its ability to put dormant follicules into anagen phase and strong antiinflammatory abilites (it lowers detrimental inflammatory markers to hair), also stimulating SSH and WNT.
Patchy beards holders, trust me and try it, you won't be disappointed.
