    Yunnan Baiyao Product Details
    What does it do?
    Yunnan Baiyao was invented in 1902 by Dr. Qu Huanzhang in Yunnan, China. Over the past 100 years, Yunnan Baiyao made its name in the fierce battle grounds of Chinese fighting against Japanese invasion in World War II and of the Vietcong fighting against USA during the Vietnam War by saving soldiers' lives from severe wounds.

    In China, Yunnan Baiyao may be used as first-aid for any kind of traumatic injury or internal bleeding, whether one has a small cut, bruise, swelling, a serious wound from gun shots, an internal injury from car accidents or fighting, or bleeding from surgery and stomach ulcers etc. One may simply pour the Yunnan Baiyao power on to the cut and/or swallow the power.

    In the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) terms, Yunnan Baiyao stops bleeding, disperses blood stasis, activates blood circulation, alleviates pain, clears away toxins, and reduce swelling. In studies, Yunnan Baiyao is shown to shorten the bleeding time and clotting time and reduce inflammatory response.

    Doctors in China also let patients take Yunnan Baiyao before surgeries (0 to 5 days) because studies show that Yunnan Baiyao can reduce the amount of bleeding during operation.1,2 When applied after operation, Yunnan Baiyao may promote healing from the wound.

    The exact ingredients and production procedure of Yunnan Baiyao are still state secrets of China. It is believed that the main Chinese herb is San Qi, or called Tien Chi, Panax pseudoginseng, Panax notoginseng, Notoginseng.

    Currently, Yunnan Baiyao is only legitimately produced by Yunnan Baiyao Group Co., Ltd, one of the top state pharmaceutical companies in China. It was produced and exported to USA under the Camellia brand name before 1998. All the Yunnan Baiyao that possesses the product name Yunnan Paiyao under the Camellia brand in today's market are not genuine Yunnan Baiyao.

    What is the formula composition?
    The formula for Yunnan Baiyao is considered as a national treasure by the Chinese government and guarded as a top medical secret. Nevertheless, on the label of Yunnan Baiyao batches that are exported to the USA market, the following formula information is provided.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your product was given to me by a life long childhood friend Your product was given to me by a life long childhood friend, and we are both in our 40's now. he used to have a martial arts school in Washington. I ran into him at the lake one day, and he wanted to give me a ride in his drag boat, I told him I could not get my foot wet, because I had a 2 year-old fight with my diabetes, trying to close a hole in my big toe that was the size of a quarter. He wanted to look at it and said he might know of somthing that would help, but had to order it.

    I will tell you, I have tried, and the doctor has tried, the strongest antibiotics to no avail. This product within days has almost closed my toe. Yunnan Baiyao has been a godsend, it has saved my foot, and my leg from being amputated! Thank you for the low prices, it makes it easier to share with all family and friends. Thank's again! (I mixed with my med's - mupirocin ointment usp 2%, and silver sulfadiazine cream usp 1%)
