What does taking the free potion do in Crisis Core?

Drink up before the next mission.

As you progress in Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core, you will find yourself in the Shinra Building a lot. This location is full of NPCs, including a lady who offers you a free potion at the Entrance. This may leave you wondering what the free potion from the Shinra lady does in Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core.

Should you take the free potion in Crisis Core?

Yes, you should definitely take the free potion from the lady at the Shinra Building Entrance. It is great for restoring your stats, but the main thing that makes it worth it is the Raise status. Like a Phoenix Down, this will instantly revive Zack and bring him back to full health when you are killed.

You can drink the potion consecutively, but doing so will not stack the effects. So once you have used the potion, head out for your next mission or story beat. Feel free to return and get a potion between missions, especially for more difficult ones.
