Health vials: how do they work?

So the health vials that you find in containers and get in vending machines just say “quickly regenerates some health”. What I want to know is how do they determine the value? I assume it heals a % of your health over time as opposed to a set number but not sure. Does anyone know the math?

There are actually different kinds between and in the games.

The “Insta health vials” should be 25%.

Those are from Borderlands 1. Are those values even the same? I mean it still references different color vials from B1 so not sure if that is even accurate. It doesn’t seem the B3 part of the wiki is really developed yet.

If you scroll further down there is a section for BL2 and 3. I would guess 2 and 3 are the same because BL1 is the only one so far that has the storable health items.
