Its name refers to both the supplement and the trees from which it’s derived.

Also known as taheebo or lapacho, pau d’arco has long been used to treat a range of ailments. As a supplement, it’s marketed to reduce inflammation and promote weight loss.

May Help Treat Infections

Laboratory experiments suggest that pau d’arco extract may protect against a number of disease-causing organisms.

May Inhibit Inflammation
Pau d’arco extract is believed to inhibit inflammation — your body’s natural response to injury.

While low levels of inflammation are beneficial, chronic inflammation is thought to lead to diseases, such as cancer, obesity, and heart disease

May Reduce Weight

Pau d’arco extract may promote weight loss by inhibiting dietary fat absorption. However, this may come with a number of side effects.

Pau d’arco extract is available in capsule, liquid, and powder form.

Traditionally, 2–3 teaspoons (10–15 grams) of the bark is simmered in water for 15 minutes and consumed as a tea 3 times per day.

But the beneficial compounds believed to give pau d’arco its effects are poorly extracted in water.

Liquid extracts of pau d’arco are a better choice because they’re made by dissolving the bark in alcohol, which draws out more of its potent compounds.
