Pau d'Arco, also known as Taheebo Tea, comes from a tree that makes its habitat predominantly in Argentina and Brazil. It is believed to have a positive effect on the immune system. Our Pau d'Arco is 100% pure inner bark and is carefully inspected to ensure the highest quality product.
Pau dArco is an evergreen tree grown in the warmth of Central and South America particularly in the Amazon rain forest. The inner bark of the tree has been used for medicinal purposes by South Americans for centuries. During the 1960s, its potential benefits became more widely known and investigated in the medical community.
Researchers continued to be interested in Pau dArco and eventually identified more than 20 active chemicals. Through laboratory research these compounds were shown to have anti-viral and anti-microbial properties. By increasing oxygen levels in cells, Pau dArco helped destroy bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. It also showed promising effectiveness on dysentery, strep, yeast infections and malaria. Perhaps its greatest promise comes in its believed ability to boost the immune system. Further research is examining its anti-inflammatory abilities.
