Pau D’Arco is safe for human consumption in small doses and is incredibly useful in cleansing the body, eliminating free radicals that threaten cells, and supporting healthier bodily functions to reduce the likelihood of infection and disease.  Pau D’Arco contains a rare combination of bold natural elements that prove to destroy harmful organisms that can invade and attack the body.  These include quinoids, benzenoids, flavenoids, lapachol and beta-lapachlone.  Each of these therapeutic compounds fight off potential damaging microbes as together they have antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and anti-parasitic properties.  

Amazingly, this amazing herbal remedy often works on drug-resistant strains of bacteria and viruses and is therefore being studied for its phenomenal healing, prophylactic and restorative powers.  The compounds of Pau D’Arco work through several approaches.  First, as an antioxidant, Pau D’Arco helps defend and repair cells damaged by free radicals.  These foreign invaders can cause cellular mutations that lead to disease, but antioxidants work in conjunction with the body’s immune system to protect, heal and reverse the effects of damaging free radicals.
