Pau d'arco is a tree with extremely hard wood. Its name is the Portuguese word for "bow stick," an appropriate term considering the tree’s use by the native South American Indians for making hunting bows. The bark and wood are used to make medicine. Pau D'Arco is derived from the inner bark of Tabebuia trees native to both Central and South America. Naturally rich in quinones such as napthaquinones, naphthofurandiones, and anthroquinones, Pau D'Arco has been consumed historically to help promote wellness on a number of levels. More recent scientific studies indicate that Pau D'Arco helps to support healthy intestinal flora. It has also been suggested that Pau D'Arco may assist the body in supporting healthy cell growth and possesses powerful antioxidant properties. Lapachol, and active ingredient found in the inner bark, has been found to help activate human immune cells.
