Pau D' Arco Tea

A cup of steamed tea
Pau D' Arco is a natural herb originally from the Rainforest, taken from the inner bark of the Taheebo from South America. It is a great kind of tea to drink when you want many nutritional benefits, but can not drink caffeine. Pau D' Arco is caffeine-free, and can essentially help cleanse the body of bacteria and toxins.

There are three main contributions to the health benefits of Pau D' Arco: 

1) It ultimately strengthens our immune system
2) It decreases inflammation
3) It comes in very high antioxidants

The two most important ingredients(compounds) that are contained in this tea are both lapachol andbeta-lapachone, which work together to create a magical potion of healing qualities. 


Pau D' Arco comes from a flower

Optional/Possible Instructions: Take it as a tea or use the Pau D' Arco drops as an additive in your cup of water (before your lunch). It acts as an antibacterial and anti fungal source of protection to our bodies.
