Pau d' Arco
(C) Mauricio Mercadante

Pau d’Arco is extracted from the inner bark of the Tabebuia Impetiginosa or Tabebuia Avellanedae trees. These trees are also known as Taheebo trees and are most commonly found in South America and sometimes in Central America. However, you can occasionally find them in Florida as well. Pau darco has been used throughout history by cultures such as the Incas, Aztecs and Indio tribes. The Pau d’Arco bark is dried, shredded and made into a tea which has a slightly bitter taste. In the Americas, Pau d’arco has a folk reputation as an anticancer, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agent, especially for treating candida infections.
