Pau d’Arco

Post image for Pau d’Arco – great South American immune herb

Pau d’arco, also known as Lapacho, is an evergreen tree, native to the rain forests and mountains of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.
This impressive tree can grow to 25 feet and is the proud bearer of beautiful trumpet like flowers, but it is the inner bark which is used therapeutically.
Like the better known guarana, pau d’arco is a great find by our South American herbal cousins.
