Yunnan Baiyao Dosage for Horses

Yunnan Baiyao should be used only after consultation and in cooperation with your horse’s veterinarian.

How much to give? These are general guidelines:

  • On the day before the race, give the horse one bottle of powder in the morning and one in the evening, but save the red pills for later
  • Give the horse a third bottle of powder on the morning of race day, again, save the red/emergency pill.
  • Give the horse a fourth and final dose just before the race starts, and then also give him all four red pills

For severe external wounds the powder can also be rubbed on the area in a paste form and then bandaged tightly to stop the blood and start healing the wound.

Do not give Yunnan Baiyao on an ongoing basis. It is best to give it on alternating days, or for a 5-day on, 5-day off cycle that repeats. There is some possible evidence that this medicine may elevate liver markers if given daily for prolonged periods of time.

Amount: 1 package contains 4 grams of powder

What is Yunnan Baiyao:

This is one of the most prized formulas in all of 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 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.

Additional information regarding Yunnan Baiyao can be found at the US National Library of Medicine.

Yunnan Baiyao for Horses with EIPH

Yunnan Baiyao is commonly used as a pre-race treatment for horses that bleed due to respiratory stress. This condition is also called EIPH or Exercise Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage. This is a condition which leads to blood filling the airways of the lungs after intense strenuous activity.

Yunnan Baiyao may significantly decrease the amount of time of the bleed. 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.

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.

Magic Powder

When my kids were little they called it the Magic Powder. I've used it for bloody wounds for over 20 years with great success every time in its fast acting and healing effect. No first aid kit should be without it. Usually by itself is enough for most applications.

Great Stuff!

I have been giving Baiyao to my dog for a nose tumor for about 6 months. Because of the powder, when she has a sneezing attack the blood when sneezing has been kept to minimum. She is feeling much better now and I am hopeful she will be ok. Yunnan Baiyao is helping to extend her life.
