Pau D'Arco: Amazonian Antiviral
Anti-Viral | Anti-Candidal | Master Blood Tonic
Pau d'Arco is a huge canopy tree native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical parts of South and Latin America. It 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.
Since the 80’s, Pau D’Arco has received extensive scientific research for its ability to protect against viruses, protect against candida overgrowth, as a general tonic to the reproductive organs, as a nutritive to the skin. In South American herbal medicine, which has been confirmed medically, it is considered to be astringent, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral.

The ingredients that make a difference
How to use it
Morning & Night
Add 1-2 tsp in your tea, soup, or broth. As a tea, steep 1-2 tsp, in a cup of boiling water for 15 minutes and enjoy. For a stronger dose, simmer for 20min, strain and enjoy. Dosage always depends on the conditions you wish to treat. For acute symptoms we recommend 2-3x day. For daily toning, we recommend 1-2x day. Consume before meals, or after meals.
We recommend everyone listen to their body intuitively; follow the dosage that resonates the most with you.
