Pau d’arco, also known as lapacho, is a broadleaf evergreen tree native to the Amazonian rainforest. The bark contains naphthoquinones, a class of compounds in the vitamin K group that are also found in green, leafy vegetables. The bark also contains a number of antioxidants, including quercetin.
Dried and cut pau d’arco is typically decocted to produce teas, infusions, tinctures and liquid extracts.
Please note: Our cut and sifted pau d’arco is the inner bark of the plant.
