Today, we’re discussing Taheebo or Lapacho or Pau D’arco. This is the beautiful brownish-red colored inner bark from a significant tree. Historically, it’s been used for a variety of conditions, including bowel issues, colitis, hemorrhoids, constipation, and even different types of cancers.
Now, an issue with Taheebo or Pau D’arco is the adulteration with inferior species. They are sometimes misused by using the inner heartwood instead of the inner bark. It’s crucial to ensure the correct part of the tree is used for the maximum benefit. Another herbal product to compare is the slippery elm, which has been utilized by many generations and is a favorite for its deep pink colored powder, benefiting the digestive system.
For those interested in utilizing Taheebo, it’s recommended to brew it as tea. Here’s a guideline:
- Acquire the bark – it’s a browny colored bark.
- Use about three level tablespoons of the bark.
- Add it to a stainless steel or glass pot (avoid aluminum). Pour in about 1,000 ml or one liter of cold, good-quality water.
- With the lid on, bring it to boil, then simmer for about 20-30 minutes.
- Strain it through fine cloth or a coffee/tea strainer.
- Store in the refrigerator. Given its anti-fungal properties, it should last for a significant time.
- Consume according to your preference, whether cold or reheated.
