Product Description

Excerpts from the book The How to Herb Book

Pau d' Arco (Taheebo) comes from the inner bark of the Red Lapacho tree in the Andes of South America. It has been used for centuries. Theodoro Meyer of the National University of Tucuman, Argentina was the first modern scientist to study Taheebo’s chemical composition. He found it contained XYLOIDIN – an antibiotic with viricidal properties. Also contains LASPACHOL – an element noted for its antitumor activity.

Excerpts from the book Nutritional Herbology

The Incas and native tribes of South America use pau d’arco bark externally as a poultice or decoction for treating skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis, fungal infections, hemorrhoids and skin cancers.

A tea made from the bark is used as a blood purifier, to treat ulcers and rheumatism and is said to cure leukemia. It is also diuretic and antipyretic.

The recent popularity of pau d’arco in western herbology is attributed to its antifungal activity in treating systemic yeast infections like candida albicans.

Yeast infections often accompany or follow antibiotic therapy and can be especially resistant to conventional treatment. The antifungal action of pau d’arco is used to combat these infections by drinking the tea thrice daily.

Contains astringent compounds that shrink inflamed tissues and are anti-fungal. It also contains bitter compounds that have anti-tumor activity especially in certain blood and skin cancers. Pau d’arco is an excellent herbal source of calcium. It has been used to treat fungal infections, inflammatory skin conditions, leukemia, dysentery, jaundice, ulcers, and rheumatism.

Pau D' Arco is high or very high on the following nutrients:

  • Calcium
  • Cobalt
  • Crude Fiber
  • Silicon

  1. 10+ years...family & friends have used Pau D'Arco

    Posted by david amaral on 5th Feb 2014

    20+ years...family & friends have used Pau D'Arco...it appears to significantly boost the bodies immune response. I prefer it to echinacea or golden seal.

    I always keep it stocked in our "herb cabinet"...unfortunately "More Than Alive" is frequently out of it...so I usually buy 5 lbs. at a time.

  2. Try it

    Although it is true that if you are taking strong blood thinners you would have a problem with excess blood thinning if you drank a lot, I do hope that those who asked about a probable parathyroid tumor, and to the person who's mother has cancer and is undergoing chemo, that you will drink as much of this strong tea, simmered for at least 1/2 hr in glass pot or stainless steel, then adding lemon juice or apple cider vinegar after it cools (to better absorb the tannins), because it WILL help you a lot. 8 cups at least. a day. It will help normalize your blood calcium, shrink your tumors, and will make you feel a lot better. Try it, don't worry. Yes, you certainly can use it during chemo. Best of luck.

  3. It works.

    I have a friend that drank the tea while having chemo and she said it helped with the nausea and over all she felt better than when she didn't drink the tea.

  4. I LOVE this herb and is one of my favorite.

    I have been fighting a yeast infection and a fungal infection in my intestines. And nothing had worked, this is the ONLY herb that worked for me. And I use it now for everything :O)
