Rumored to have been prescribed by the Incas to treat serious ailments, the herb pau d'arco has recently been investigated as a remedy for infectious diseases and cancer. Though its anticancer properties are debatable, it may indeed combat a variety of infections.
What Is Pau d'arco?
Pau d'arco is obtained from the inner bark of a tree -- Tabebuia impetiginosa -- indigenous to the rain forests of South America. Native tribes have taken advantage of its healing powers for centuries. Pau d'arco is also known as lapacho, taheebo, or ipe roxo. In the United States, however, it's always sold as pau d'arco.
The therapeutic ingredients in pau d'arco include a host of potent plant chemicals called naphthoquinones. Of these, lapachol has been the most intensely studied.
How Does Pau d'arco Work?
Lapachol and other compounds in pau d'arco help destroy the microorganisms that cause diseases and infections, ranging from malaria and the flu to yeast infections. Most people, however, are interested in the potential cancer-fighting properties of this herb.
Pau d'arco appears to combat bacteria, viruses, and fungi; reduce inflammation; and support the immune system. One of its best-documented uses is for vaginal yeast infections; herbalists often recommend a pau d'arco tea douche to restore the normal environment of the vagina. In capsule, tablet, tincture, or tea form, pau d'arco may be effective in strengthening immunity in people with chronic fatigue syndrome, HIV or AIDS, or chronic bronchitis. The herb's anti-inflammatory properties likewise benefit acute bronchitis, which involves inflammation of the respiratory passages, as well as muscle pain. And a tincture of pau d'arco applied directly to warts is useful in eradicating them.
