Pau D'Arco, sometimes called “Purple Trumpet Tree”, “Taheebo”, or “Lapacho”, is widely distributed in South America and the Amazon Rainforest and notably used by indigenous tribes in Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. It is a very large tree and can grow up to 125 feet high. It has been used as a traditional medicine by every native population that the tree grows for a wide variety of health concerns. The bark of the tree is used in traditional medicine and usually prepared as a tea. It is used as a blood alterative, to support immune function, to support a normal inflammatory response in the body and topically for skin conditions as well as promoting a naturally healthy microbial balance of the intestinal tract. Modern research has focused on a group of alkaloid constituents referred to collectively as Lapachols and it is likely that the tannin content and other constituents of the bark also contribute to the overall activity.
