Pau D' Arco is derived from the bark of Tabebuia trees which grow in Central and South America. The bark is naturally rich in chemical compounds known as quinones which modern science is showing have many beneficial health effects.

Pau D'Arco has traditionally been used to promote wellness on a number of levels and today it is perhaps best known for its antimicrobial properties. It is frequently recommended to treat Candida/yeast-related illness and to support beneficial gut flora. Studies have also suggested Pau D'Arco has powerful antioxidant properties and may support healthy cell growth.

This herbal remedy is sold in a multitude of forms from raw bark and tea bags to supplements in the form of capsules and liquid extracts.

Editor reviews

I have tried Pau D'Arco in various forms and would atest to its reported antifungal activity. As a result of the immune dysfunction associated with chronic fatigue syndrome I have for years struggled with intestinal bacterial and yeast overgrowth. Taking antifungals, both prescription drugs and natural alternatives, has always resulted in distinctive nervous system-related symptoms for me, including irritability, restlessness, and anxiety. I can only attribute these to a die-off, or Herxheimer, reaction.

In any event Pau D'Arco in its various forms has elicited this same set of symptoms in me very quickly with daily use so I would suggest that it would indeed be effective as an antifungal. Unfortunately, I am unable to tolerate it, or any other antifungal, for the prolonged periods my condition apparently requires.

I afeel I should mention that as a tea Pau D'Arco can kindly be referred to as an acquired taste. It is tree bark, and it basically tastes like tree bark. I'd opt for capsules or a liquid extract!
