Pau D'Arco has a long and well-documented history of use by the indigenous peoples of the rainforest. Indications imply that its use may actually predate the Incas. Throughout South America, tribes living thousands of miles apart have employed it for the same medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. They use the bark to treat many different conditions and as a tonic for the same strength and vigor it puts into their bows.
In South American herbal medicine, Pau D’Arco is considered to be astringent, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and a laxative. It is used to treat ulcers, syphilis, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal problems, candida and yeast infections, cancer, diabetes, prostatitis, constipation, and allergies.
