Frequently Asked Questions

Yunnan Baiyao is a traditional Chinese herbal formula that is most famous for pain relief and wound healing. It can be used both internally and externally to relieve pain, stop excessive bleeding, and manage certain health conditions in both humans and animals.

Yunnan Baiyao is most famous for treating bleeding wounds, hemorrhaging, and severe traumatic injury, but can also be used for a range of internal disorders, heavy menstrual bleeding, and skin conditions. In some cases, it can be used to treat aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with backache, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains.

Studies are currently underway to see how Yunnan Baiyao can possibly manage cancer and other conditions. It has been used in surgery to prevent excessive blood loss.

In animals, Yunnan Baiyao has been used successfully to treat household pets with hemangiosarcomas, manage cancer treatment side effects, clotting disorders, and EIPH (exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage) in horses.

The exact formulation of Yunnan Baiyao has long been kept a trade secret, but the main ingredient is notoginseng, or san qi. This is a powerful herb that stops pain, prevents excess bleeding, and aids in the healing process. Other herbs included in the formulation are:

  • Ajuga forrestii diels
  • Rhizoma dioscoreae
  • Rhizoma dioscoreae nipponicae
  • Herba geranii
  • Herba erodii
  • Dioscoreae parviflora ting
  • Herba inulae cappae

Yunnan Baiyao works by reducing pain and inflammation, preventing infection, and stimulating the body’s own healthy wound healing. According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, “studies done in the lab and in animals show that YNBY and notoginseng have hemostatic, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. Notoginseng also demonstrated anticoagulant properties.”

Best Chinese Medicines stocks a variety of Yunnan Baiyao products:

  • Pills and capsules (for internal use or to crush to apply externally)
  • Power (to apply to open wounds)
  • Plasters and patches (to apply to muscles aches and pain)

Adults can take 1-2 capsules of Yunnan Baiyao up to 4 times per day. For more accurate dosing based on your unique condition, contact your Chinese medicine practitioner.

In general, children of 2-5 years can take ¼ the adult dose of Yunnan Baiyao 4 times per day. Children aged 5 to 12 can take ½ the adult dose each time. However, it is often best to consult your Chinese medicine practitioner to find the right dose for your child.

Pets like dogs, cats, and horses do benefit from taking Yunnan Baiyao in certain circumstances, specifically bleeding tumors and similar conditions. Yunnan Baiyao should be used only after consultation and in cooperation with your pet’s veterinarian.

While Yunnan Baiyao can offer substantial support for many health conditions, it should not be taken on an ongoing basis. In most cases, only a few doses of Yunnan Baiyao is needed, or an alternating schedule of 5 days on, 5 days off.

If after 3 days of use, there is no improvement (or if the condition worsens), stop taking Yunnan Baiyao and contact your health care provider.

Each package of Yunnan Baiyao contains one small red capsule. This is traditionally used internally for emergencies with severe bleeding and hemorrhage. The pill should not be taken with mild bleeding, but it can be saved for an emergency.

Externally, the red pill can be crushed and mixed with Yunnan Baiyao powder, then applied to a wound for better healing.

No. Yunnan Baiyao is a special herbal formulation that is famous for stopping bleeding. The herbs used in the formula are known to both “invigorate” the blood to encourage healing and to stop the excess loss of blood.

Yunnan Baiyao should only be used under the direction of an experienced herbalist or physician. There are some conditions in which you should avoid using Yunnan Baiyao:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or could be pregnant
  • Those with bleeding disorders
  • Those who are immunocompromised
  • Those taking blood thinners

Yes, Yunnan Baiyao is gluten-free.

Love these plaster patches

I've been using the patches for a couple of months as my Acupuncturist introduced me to them. They really do alleviate the stiffness and soreness in my knees and back virtually eliminating the need for a pain reliever.
