When it comes to Pau D’ Arco, capsules and tablets are not effective. The effectiveness of Pau D’ Arco comes 1st, from the inner bark and not the outer bark (used mostly in tablets and capsules) 2nd, from the proper preparation of the bark. Pau D’ Arco bark must be boiled and extracted to release the volatile oils and esters, the key components that make Maxx Herb Pau D’ Arco and Pau D’ Arco Plus as effective as herbal dietary supplements! Your body’s digestive system is not capable of extracting these volatile oils and esters from capsules or tablets. Consequentially, Pau D’ Arco capsules and tablets are useless and a waste of your money! Our Pau D’ Arco and Pau D’ Arco Plus are in a concentrated liquid form rendering them far superior for maximum effectiveness than any Pau D’ Arco liquids, capsules or tablets on the market.

Yes you can. However, it’s not practical. First of all you have no way of guaranteeing the quality or purity of the bark, second it would take you 3 weeks to extract the key components (volatile oils and esters) and you still wouldn’t have the strength for maximum effectiveness. Consequently, it’s not as effective, efficient, convenient or as affordable.

Just making Pau D’ Arco tea does not release the volatile oils and esters, which are the key compounds that make Pau D’ Arco a very effective Herbal Dietary Supplement. We use a proprietary extraction process which releases the volatile oils and esters ensuring the highest quality extract available for maximum effectiveness.

When consuming 2mL (60 drops approx.) Pau D’ Arco or Pau D’ Arco Plus with 2 ounces of warm water, the amount of alcohol is very low indeed. Comparably, 2mL (60 drops approx.) of an extract containing 18- 20% alcohol in 2 ounces of warm water will be equivalent to consuming about 1/300 of a glass of wine… barely a sip!

Yes! Put 2mL (60 drops Approx.) in 2 ounces of boiling water for 3-5 minutes and the alcohol content will be virtually nil.

Pau D’ Arco caught the attention of some American researchers and the scientific community about 30 years ago. Because of the drug companies’ lack of interest in preventative health care, the research was very minimal. However the story is much different in South America. The inner bark of the Lapacho tree has been used medicinally by native South American people for centuries. [As a side note in South America Pau D’ Arco is always consumed in a liquid form and never in capsules or tablets.] Pau D’ Arco has been shown to help increase the production of red blood cells which carry the body’s oxygen supply and removes carbon dioxide from the blood stream. Scientists isolated an active chemical found in the bark, and termed it lapachol. Some researchers have theorized that other ingredients in the bark besides lapachol may have therapeutic benefits. Researchers have isolated over 20 active compounds in Pau D’ Arco. Research has shown Pau D’ Arco to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral and antifungal properties, helping destroy bacteria, viruses, fungi and some parasites by increasing the supply of oxygen to the cells. Pau D’ Arco has also been shown to influence the activity of the immune system. In small dosages, it can support immune system activity and in large doses may suppress some unhealthy immune responses.
