Benefits of Pau d' ArcoPau d'Arco is used treat a myriad of problems ranging from fungal infections to the common cold.
Researchers have found that the inner bark of the Tabebuia trees contain a group of powerful infection fighting compounds called naphthoquinones. One of these components is lapachol which seems to be especially potent. Naphthoquinones seem to help kill certain disease causing bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
In fact, a study at the University of Rio de Janeiro discovered that Pau d'Arco helps to treat an antibiotic resistant strain of Staphylococcus aureus. Additional research at Seoul National University finds that Pao d'Arco is active against a type of human intestinal bacteria, which can cause food poisoning.
Other laboratory studies have shown that Pau d'Arco has anti-fungal properties as good as the antifungal prescription drug ketoconazole. This is probably why it has been found to be very effective in the treatment of Candida vaginal and in fighting the fungi responsible for athlete's foot, jock itch, and other common fungal skin infections.
Dee Cee Labs' Pau d' Arco is made in America.
