Also known as 'Purple Lapacho', infusions prepared from the bark of Pau d'Arco trees have been used by many rainforest tribes for over two thousand years to contribute to the immune system. Pau d’Arco extract (Tabebuia impetiginosa) is derived from the bark of a giant hardwood tree that is native to the Amazon rainforest in South America. It has been used for over two thousand years and is still popular with the modern populations of Peru and Brazil. Rio Amazon Pau d'Arco tea is prepared using only certified inner bark from the ‘cambium’ layer of these magnificent rainforest hardwoods. This process is entirely sustainable and the bark can be ‘harvested’ causing no permanent damage to the tree. The bark contains many actives and is a source of antioxidants. Rio Trading uses only well-identified botanical material from sustainable sources.
