Product Description

Pau d'Arco is derived from the inner bark of Tabebuia trees native to both Central and South America. Naturally rich in quinones such as napthaquinones, naphthofurandiones, and anthroquinones, Pau D'Arco has been consumed historically to help promote wellness on a number of levels. More recent scientific studies indicate that Pau D'Arco helps to support healthy intestinal flora. It has also been suggested that Pau d'Arco may assist the body in supporting healthy cell growth and possesses powerful antioxidant properties. Additionally, a significant amount of pau darcos benefits stem from its lapachol content. Lapachol is a compound known by the U.S department of Agriculture to be toxic and resistant to nearly all types of harmful organisms.*

Pau d'Arco has been used to treat Candida Albicans, a fungus which causes yeast infections. It has potential support the immune system in reducing overgrowths of Clostridium Difficile, Staphyloccocus Difficile, and Helicobacter pylori (common cause of stomach ulcers).
