Herb of the Day: Pau D’Arco

Herb Of The Day Pau D'Arco FB

In the rain forests of South America grows a beautiful towering tree up to 125 feet high.  This is the tabebuia avellanedae or Pau D’Arco tree.  The inner bark of this tree has been a staple in Amazonian medicine chests for centuries and is rapidly gaining popularity in Western Medicine.  The wood is extremely hard and has traditionally been used to make hunting bows.  Pau D’Arco is best known for its detoxification properties and has said to be able to kill off parasites, bacteria, candida and fungi.  Herbalists typically prepare Pau D’Arco in teas, tinctures or extracts.

  • Parasites
  • Diabetes
  • Candida
  • Ulcers
  • Cancer
  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Anti-Viral
  • Anti-Fungal
  • Yeast Infection
  • Liver Support

The Plant

Pau D’Arco is an evergreen tree found in Central and South America.  It grows in warm climates and often reaches heights of up to 125 feet tall.  Growing beautiful rose colored flowers with leaves that grow in whorls, Pau D’Arco stands out among its habitat.  Unfortunately, Pau D’Arco has been overharvested and should not be wild-harvested (although the wood is SO tough, self-cultivation is difficult anyway).

Worm Out
TriLight's Worm Out herbal parasite cleanse is a natural and potent parasite cleansing formula safely and effectively eliminates, flushes and detoxes. Natural organic herbs blended synergistically in a non-alcoholic and sugar-free glycerine base giving an enjoyable taste for children and yet a strong potent formula for adults.

LivCare contains herbs shown to enhance liver and gallbladder function. These herbs have been used traditionally by herbal healers to treat liver disorders such as jaundice. Rich in lecithin, some researchers believe dandelion may protect against liver and gallbladder disorders.
