South America’s “Tree of Life”
Long before humankind set foot on the rugged, breathtaking slopes of the Andes Mountains, the Pau D’Arco tree flourished there as a tall gangly friend when the early Americans may have had a far more difficult time in their fight for survival.
From the Pau D’Arco, they learned to make a strong, flexible bow—from whence we get the name of the tree itself— that enabled them to hunt effectively. And they reaped a range of health benefits that supported long and healthy living
Dozens of different species of Pau D’Arco exist, each distinguished by its leaf configuration and flower color. The tree providing the most health benefits is the pink flowered Tabebuia heptophylla, which grows mainly in Argentina. This is the only kind of Pau D’Arco Nature’s Sunshine offers, because we demand only the best for our customers.
The Pau D’Arco tree amazed the indigenous peoples of South America with its ability to repel microbes. No fungus ever forms on the Pau D’Arco tree, even though it grows in the most lush tropical rain forests in the world. This amazing tree has proven entirely immune to fungal infection, which makes it a one-of-a-kind among its arboreal cousins.
NSP Pau d’Arco is pure extract from or the bark of this amazing tree, which is especially rich in a quinone called lapachol. This natural chemical is thought to be the basis for Pau D’Arco pharmacological effectiveness.
