Pau D’Arco Tea Benefits:
- Supports the body’s defences
- Supports the immune system
- Contains antioxidants
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.
Pau d’ Arco Tea by Rio Amazon 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.

Several of our South American botanical capsules are 5:1 extracts. This means that it would take 5 times the fresh herb to make the resulting 1 part of finished product in the capsule. So, in this case the 500 mg content of capsule is the equivalent of 2500 mg of fresh herb as harvested.
The Rio Amazon Story:
Many years ago our co-founder travelled to Brazil and was inspired by the wonderful herbs which grew abundantly in every corner of the Amazon rainforest.
He found a treasure trove of nature’s finest botanicals which had been used by indigenous peoples to support their health and wellbeing. His mission was to bring the finest herbs back to the western world, and to share their beneficial properties.
