Several communities prized this botanical nutrient for its benefits. According to records, it was used by the Incas, the Kallawayas, and other native South American groups for its many healing properties. Pau d’arco is Portuguese for “bow tree.” That makes sense when you realize that its dense, rot-resistant wood makes excellent hunting bows, and the natives harvested it for just that. Its Latin name Tabebuia heptaphylla also led to the nickname taheebo. And many people from the region are familiar with taheebo tea. It’s also called lapacho, no doubt a reference to lapachol. For immune support that’s right on target, choose Pau D’Arco.

How It Works

 The pau d’arco tree grows in the rain forests of Brazil. Unlike other trees in its midst, pau d’arco does not develop fungus growth, even though it grows in the most lush tropical rainforests in the world. Pau d’arco contains a chemical called lapachol, which may account for the herb’s traditional use in supporting the immune system.
