Rio Amazon Pau d'Arco Tea
Supports the body's defences
Supports 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. 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.
Today it is still popular with the modern populations of Peru and Brazil. The bark contains many actives and is a souce of antioxidants.
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
