Lapacho, Pau D’Arco, Ιπερόξο φλοιός.

Popularly known as Taheebo, the Lapacho is a herbal tea obtained from the Lapacho tree (or as it is locally known, the Pau D’Arco tree), which is a native of the rainforest in South America and regions of Andes.  It has been used for a very long time for medicinal purposes.

In Brazil, the tree is referred to as the “divine tree” in deference to its remarkable healing properties. It has the ability to aid in regeneration of new cells and increasing the typical defence of the cells to fight infections. It also promotes the quicker assimilation of nutrients and at the same accelerates elimination of waste from the body.

The Lapacho is recognised for its sedative, decongestant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, antiviral, antibiotic, and anti-malarial properties.

It is commonly administered as a health tonic as it improves the functions of the pancreas, stimulates the appetite, and restores and regulates digestive functions. Lapacho is an acclaimed blood builder; it means it is able to promote and stimulate the production of red blood cells. It also improves the ability of these red blood cells to carry oxygen.

It is safe for administration in children and it is often used to help the kids sleep when they are restless; it calm nerves and relieves anxiety in children as well.
