Yunnan Baiyao Aerosol Spray (Bleeding and Muscle Soreness)


Our favorite remedy to stop bleeding and accelerate healing, Yunnan Baiyao is an all-herbal medicine famous for being carried by the Vietcong to stop bleeding and heal injuries during the Vietnam War. Yunnan Baiyao was developed in 1902 and is one of the most respected medicine companies in China. Applied topically, it stops bleeding instantly and speeds up healing in both humans and animals--it's a popular topical medicine used by vets for dogs and horses

This is the aerosol spray version of Yunnan Baiyao, which comes with two bottles: a more concentrated version in a red can (30g) and a less concentrated version in a yellow can (85g). The red can should be used at the time of the initial injury, while the yellow can can be used as a follow-up spray, or for muscle aches and soreness.

Multiple studies on both human and animal patients demonstrate Yunnan Baiyao’s ability to stop bleeding and expedite healing. A 2009 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial published in the International Journal of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery found that “the total blood loss in the Yunnan Baiyao group (mean, 330.5+/-134.4 ml) was significantly lower than in the control group (mean, 420.3+/-175.9 ml).”

The formula is made from precious herbs indigenous to Yunnan, a region in the extreme south of China bordering Laos and Myanmar, and the full ingredient list is patented and unknown, but its main ingredient is San Qi, also known as Panax pseudoginseng, an herb well-known for its ability to heal cuts and hemorrhaging--an in vivo study showed San Qi can heal wounds 1.5 times faster.

Instructions: shake bottle and spray about 3 inches away from the affected site for 2-3 seconds.
