What are Yunnan Baiyao Capsules (Jiaonang)?
Yunnan Baiyao is one of the most prized formulas in all of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is so prized that the complete formula is kept secret even from the people who work to produce this product. This is because this is the most effective formula that helps stop bleeding while at the same time continuing to help proper circulation of blood. May be used internally and the capsule contents may be put directly onto small wounds to stop bleeding and accelerate healing.
*Used in both human and animal (cat, dog, horse) applications – in both everyday accidents and emergencies.
Yunnan Baiyao also helps to relieve muscle pain associated with exercise and supports the health of the tissues, the immune system, and the nervous system.

Yunnan Baiyao for Dogs
Yunnan Baiyao is commonly used to extend the life of dogs with bleeding cancers such as hemangiosarcoma, spleen, or nasal cancer. Some treatments for cancer, such as Chemotherapy, tend to promote bleeding; it makes sense that giving a supplement to promote blood clotting would be a benefit.
It is believed that Yunnan Baiyao works by activating the platelets, which are the small blood components that help make blood clot. Blood clots are the first step in a scab.? They are like little plugs or corks in the way they stop hemorrhage.
