A red pill comes with every package of Yunnan Baiyao, whether in powder or capsule form. You may be wondering now, what is the red pill for, right? Well, this tiny red pill is intended for severe emergency cases – extreme blood loss that can predispose a person into shock, which is fatal. The red pill is the concentrated form of the drug known in China as “Baoxianzi”, which literally mean “pill for emergency or serious case” and has been proven to save thousands of lives during the times of war.
This pill must be taken only in the most extreme cases especially when there is loss of consciousness and massive volume of blood. For instance, conditions like gunshot wounds with severe bleeding and persistent uterine bleeding permits the usage of the red pill unless there are known problems with blood coagulation and other risk factors.
