Pau D’Arco Powder


Pau d’arco has a long and well-documented history of use by the indigenous peoples of the rainforest. Indications imply that its use may actually predate the Incan civilization.

The bark contains a large amount of chemicals known as quinoids, and a small quantity of benzenoids and flavonoids. These quinoids (and, chiefly, anthraquinones, furanonaphthoquinones, lapachones, and naphthoquinones) have shown definite antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal activity which proves its effectiveness in treating candida and other bacteria, fungal and viral over growth.

It also has cancer preventative activities which are ascribed to lapachol and lapachone which activate cancer fighting genes and trigger tumor cell death.
