The extra Red Heart container can exceed the maximum Coin Heart container limit of Keeper, allowing him to obtain more than 2 Coin Heart containers.
Depending on the character used, this item only affects Red Heart containers, Soul Hearts (???) or Coin Heart containers (Keeper). It does not affect The Lost.
The health container gain is not retroactive - picking it up at 99 coins will not grant 4 extra Red Heart containers.
However, picking it up at 99 coins and then dropping below 99 coins will lose a Red Heart container, decreasing the feasibility of picking this item up the more coins you have.
The player will die if they lose their last form of health as a result of Greed's Gullet.
If Keeper drops to under 2 Coin Heart containers as a result of Greed's Gullet, or by any other means (Devil deal, etc.), he is unable to use an HP Up to increase his health back to 2 and has to regain the lost coins to do so.
If Greed's Gullet is rerolled away after gaining health, the extra health will be preserved even if the player loses the coins afterward.
However, if this happens with Keeper, his health will drop back to 2 Coin Heart containers upon picking up an item, unless another Greed's Gullet is picked up.
Be careful when buying items from the Shop, as it can remove Red Heart containers.
