Pau d'arco is a large tree that grows in the tropical regions of Central and South America. Also called ipe roxo and taheebo, pau d'arco is cultivated and harvested for its bark, which contains several antioxidant compounds and tannins.

The powdered herb is typically encapsulated as a dietary supplement. Our powdered pau d'arco is the inner bark of the plant.

pau d'arco / ipe roxo

Pau d'arco, also known as Pink Trumpet Tree and Tabebuia ipe, is a member of the bignonia family that is native to the Amazonian rainforest. For centuries, South Americans have harvested the inner bark to make tonics and teas, particularly a traditional herbal tea called Lapacho. The powdered pau d'arco bark is typically encapsulated as a dietary supplement.

While Pau d'arco contains tannins and antioxidant compounds like quercetin, the herb also contains a phenolic compound called lapachol that does present a risk of toxicity if taken in large doses or for a long period of time. The topical use of Pau d'arco, however, is not associated with any adverse side effects.
