Pau D' Arco | Tabebuia impetiginosa | Cut & Sifted | Powder

Pau d'Arco is a large South American rainforest tree that is also known as trumpet tree, lapacho Colorado, ipe roxo and various other common names. The tree is enjoyed in the wild because it produces attractive shade-giving foliage and colorful flowers, but in commercial cultivation it is grown for the purpose of harvesting the bark. The inner pith contains organic compounds, most notably lapachol and beta-lapachone. Because these compounds do not yield easily to water, the bark must be simmered in boiling water for at least 15 minutes to extract them. Powdered pau d'Arco is usually encapsulated as a dietary supplement.

Commonly mixed with other herbs for targeted enhancement blends. 

Also known as:
pau d’arco, ipe roxo, pink ipê, pink lapacho, ipê-cavatã, ipê-comum, ipê-reto, ipê-rosa, ipê-roxo-damata, lapacho negro, pau d'arco-roxo, peúva, piúva, trumpet bush, trumpet tree

Pau d'arco history, folklore, literature & more

Pau d'arco is an herb that most Brazilians and other South Americans are very familiar with, but you may not feel the same. It’s been used in that area of the world for thousands of years to treat just about every problem you can imagine.

If you suffered from malaria, anemia, syphilis, or cancer pau d'arco was the answer. And if you had less serious problems such as fever, a cold, or a cough pau d'arco could come to the rescue there as well. It was also used to treat all manner of skin infections such as impetigo, boils, fungal infections, and snakebites.

Today, pau d'arco is still a great herbal remedy for these issues. It’s been shown in research to be an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer, and antiviral substance. It also has antimalarial and anticoagulant properties. As you can imagine, it can be used to treat a huge variety of ailments and help restore you to good health.

There are several ways you can use pau d'arco. If you’re suffering from a skin ailment, pau d'arco can be used in an ointment that’s applied directly to the skin. This will help to treat problems such as insect bites, psoriasis, eczema, and even athlete’s foot. You can also use it to treat snakebites.

As a tincture, it can be added to water and used to treat internal problems such as cancer, circulatory problems, fever, colds, and dysentery. You can also use it as a treatment for syphilis, diabetes, and liver disease. Some people have even had success using it to fight Parkinson’s disease and leukemia. Studies show that it can work to fight tumors, especially when combined with Western techniques of chemotherapy and radiation.

You can use a decoction of it to treat yeast infections. Its powerful antifungal properties will help restore the natural balance in the body and kill off excess yeast leaving you more comfortable.

You shouldn’t take pau d'arco if you’re pregnant or taking medications such as blood thinners. It’s best to talk with your healthcare provider before beginning a program of pau d'arco because it’s so powerful.

If you’re looking for an all-purpose treatment that you can use to handle health problems from A to Z, pau d'arco may be one of the best herbs you can keep on hand. Take a cue from the South American people who have been enjoying its success for thousands of years and make pau d'arco part of your regimen.
