Now Foods Pau d'arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa) is an invaluable guardian of immunity. Both names refer to both the tree growing in Latin America and its internal bark, which for many centuries has been used in the medicine of indigenous inhabitants of the Amazon. The traditional use of la pacho covers a range of minor and major ailments: from fever, colds and coughs, to pain relief, to malaria, anemia, syphilis, snake bites, and even cancers. For many Indian tribes, Pau d'arco is one of the most important medical plants, so they surround them with great respect and call them a divine tree.
The inner bark of Pau d'arco is a thin layer located between the outer bark and the tree core. Its function is to rebuild external tissues and protect the core, hence the concentration of bioactive substances is very high in it. Only this one layer has health-promoting properties. Unfortunately, many of the products sold as Pau d'arco are in fact a mixture of inner and outer bark, which arises in the wood industry as a by-product of woodworking. What is worse, there are also counterfeits being the bark of completely different tree species, for example mahogany, which only resembles Pau d'arco. So let's pay attention to the origin of the bark and the reputation of the seller.
The most important and highly valued feature of the substances contained in the bark of Pau d'arco is to support natural immunity and support the proper functioning of the body in the case of infections.
Pau d'arco capsules support the body in eliminating harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, and at the same time exert a positive influence on the development of beneficial gut microflora. This plant noticeably supports digestive processes from the very beginning of application.
Pau d'arco tablets also help maintain normal blood glucose levels and, thanks to the presence of powerful antioxidants, reduces the oxidative stress in the body.
The bioactive substances present in the Pau d'arco bark are primarily lapachol and beta-lapachone belonging to furanonaftokinones, and kinones and naphtholone. Next to them are also phenolic glycosides, cyclopentene dialdehydes, iridoids and benzenoids.
