Taheebo Tea & The Molecule of Youth
The Keto diet and fasting have grown in popularity over the past few years. Nutritional ketosis and intermittent fasting are tools that many are using to increase their mitochondrial health and boost their energy levels. However, you may be pleased to learn that ketosis and intermittent fasting are not the only ways to achieve those results.
What if there were other ways to get the same mitochondrial protective and regenerative effects as fasting without actually restricting your calories?
Or, something you can do in addition to intermittent fasting for even better results?
NAD+ | The Molecule of Youth
Beta-lapachone, one of the main phytochemicals found in Taheebo tree bark, has been found to increase one of the most important coenzymes found in every cell of your body, called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), also known as the “Molecule of Youth”. NAD+ mimics the effects of calorie restriction, helping you to protect your mitochondria and genetic material and slow premature cellular aging.
As you age, your levels of NAD+ decline, and your mitochondria suffer increasingly more damage from oxidative stresses. Because NAD+ also acts as a signaling molecule, communication between your cells breaks down as its levels decrease. Beta-lapachone, one of the ingredients in Taheebo tree bark, is a potent catalyst for NAD+. The higher your levels of NAD+, the better. The more NAD+ in your cells, the more efficient your mitochondrial ATP or energy production is.
“By increasing NAD+ intercellularly, Taheebo/Pau d’Arco helps improve mitochondrial ATP production. This is beneficial for health in general, but it’s particularly important if you’re fighting disease.”
“As we age, the levels of NAD+ go down by about 50%. So a really good solution, in fact most of the anti-aging researchers that I study are absolutely firmly convinced, NAD+ is the single most important molecule to upregulate. No question about it.”
“It rescued some people. I’m sure it’s expensive as heck, but you wanna turn NAD+ levels around, and one of the most effective ways I found was through the use of this tea, Taheebo/Pau D’Arco, which is loaded with something called beta-lapachone.”
“I discovered that a compound called “beta-lapachone” can massively increase levels of NAD+, and that this pricey chemical can actually be quite inexpensively obtained via a Taheebo/Pau d’ Arco tree bark tea from the Peruvian jungles.”
Beta-Lapachone in Taheebo Bark Helped Mice Live Longer Than Those on Calorie Restriction
In a study with aged mice, researchers added beta-lapachone from Taheebo bark into one group’s diet. There were no changes in activity level or total calories of either group.
The following effects were noted in the beta-lapachone group, compared to the control group:
• Increased ratio of NAD+ to NADH in the muscle
• Higher number of intact mitochondria, suggesting resistance to mitochondrial breakdown
• Less damage to mitochondrial proteins that reduce the production of damaging reactive oxygen species (ROS) inside the cell
• A decrease in body weight and body mass, compared to the level found in young adult mice
• Lower age-related markers in blood, such as increased glucose, lipids and leptin
• Increased body temperature, suggesting a higher energy expenditure and body metabolism
• Higher capacity of associative memoryGreater motor performance and muscular strength, as seen by up-regulated genes associated with muscle development
The most notable finding from this study: beta-lapachone benefited the health of the mice even more than calorie restriction. The beta-lapachone group lived significantly longer than the calorie-restricted group, which lived longer than the control group!
In addition, the researchers noted that beta-lapachone protected the mitochondrial structure better than calorie restriction. Read the full study here.
We can go on and on about the many amazing benefits of NAD+ and will write more about it in the coming months. For now, here is a great article about NAD+ and its health benefits.
I have been a health image and wellness coach for over 20 years, and was so happy to have found this tea to share with my clients. I have had two with breast cancer who used the tea and are now in remission and are doing amazing. I have shared the website with so many people !! Over Christmas I was sick with the flu and remembered that I had the tea. After drinking I couldn’t believe how much energy I had after drinking 6 cups a day during my illness .. I also think it sped up the healing process as I was only down for a few days! I immediately ordered more and have been consuming a cup of day, and I believe it is helping me sleep better. This tea works for everything.!! It also tastes so good !! So pure, so healing ,so miraculous !! Thank you
I noticed after drinking taheboo tea, my body feels different especially my feet. They were very dry before and now rhey are better. Especially because of my fungus problem, my nails look better.
I had a nodule on my lung that was growing. I was receiving regular CS. After drinking Melissa and Julian's Tea for a period of time. It stopped growing. It didn't go any further and after repeated scans the radiologist said it no longer required any scan at all. I am very grateful for Melissa and Julian and their Tea. I drink 5 cups a day.
Love your tea. Its earthy goodness is no doubt beneficial to me.
I was experiencing joint pain, fighting diabetes, & inflammation; it's greatly reduced my pain, no more intestinal & chest pains. Plus my stress & mental functions & sleep are much improved. It's helped my mother to healing very fast from colon cancer & wearing an intestinal pouch and her energy increased so much; she started gaining weight & exercising. Glory to God! I'm going to keep drinking it this time for complete healing. It truly is I believe a Gift from God...
I bought this tea after a friend mentioned it’s potential to help fight cancer. My husband was diagnosed with advanced cancer at a young age and we’re everything we can. It’s only been a few weeks but since starting the tea his appetite has improved significantly and there is a bit more energy. Even if that is the only benefit that comes from it, it is well worth it!
I Love Love this tea !!! It’s really delicious that I don’t care for my daily cup of coffee!!!
I added Pau d'Arco to my holistic treatment plan, as there are so many testimonials to its positive results. I hope to be one of those soon, so stay tuned...
After drinking Taheebo tea for a few months my knee pain is completely gone
The taste is really good. I drink it for health problems. Have noticed it definitely gives me a ton if energy, better sleep, less aches. Will continue using it and see if it helps with other things. Thanks for a great product I can trust.
I was diagnosed with high grade bladder cancer in 2019 and had surgery to remove it.I was told by my urologist it was like pulling weeds and it was impossible to see the fine particles that are left so I would have immunotherapy. Thats where the tea was introduced to me .I have been drinking two cups of tea a day and have been cancer free to this day 2023 Thank you for so much for such a wonderful product !! TOMMY in AZ
Heard a lot of good benefits about this tea, so I had to try it. I am surprised that shipping was very fast! taste is high quality. has great amount in a bag, it also came with another bag to share or gift with someone, so I gave some to my in-laws to try and they’re loving it so far! so worth it! thank you!
This tea is the best
I love how this makes me feel. I get a sense of wellness and do feel the benefits. I'll continue taking it to see if it helps lower my cholesterol
Husband loves this tea!
