Now Foods Pau D' Arco 500 mg 250 caps boost immunity
Now Foods Pau d'arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa) is an invaluable immune guardian. Both names refer both to the tree, which grows throughout Latin America, and to its inner bark, which has been used in indigenous Amazonian medicine for many centuries. The traditional uses of la pacho range from minor and major ailments: from fevers, colds and coughs, to pain relief, to malaria, anemia, syphilis, snakebites and even cancer. For many Indian tribes, Pau d'arco is one of the most important medicinal plants, so they surround it with great respect and call it a divine tree.
What is Pau D' Arco?
The inner bark of Pau d'arco is a thin layer located between the outer bark and the core of the tree. Its function is to restore the outer tissues and protect the core, so the concentration of bioactive substances in it is very high. Only this one layer has health-promoting properties. Unfortunately, many products marketed as Pau d'arco are actually a mixture of inner and outer bark, which is produced in the wood industry as a by-product of wood processing. To make matters worse, there are also fakes that are the bark of completely different tree species, such as mahogany, which only look like Pau d'arco. So it is worth paying 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 Pau d'arco bark is the promotion of natural immunity and support of the proper functioning of the body in infections. Pau d'arco capsules support the body in eliminating harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, while having a positive effect on the development of beneficial intestinal microflora. The plant noticeably supports digestive processes from the very beginning of use.
