Taheebo Tea Testimonials: Candida & Gut Health

I’ve been drinking 1-2 cups of strong tea per day. I make it at least triple strength. I’ve had problems with candida overgrowth and likely gut bacterial community issues that probably go back to intense childhood antibiotics to stop ear infections. In addition to digestive issues (IBS), I get some strange symptoms that include facial/neck tics that I find uncomfortable and socially distressing. Ramping up the tea strength and dosage has pulled my symptoms way back and I’m now looking to find the right maintenance dose, having also cut out sugars and alcohol. ~ Bart

What is Taheebo Tea

Taheebo/Pau d’Arco is a large canopy tree native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical parts of South America. It grows to 30 meters high and the base of the tree can be 2-3 meters in diameter.

The common names taheebopau d’arco, ipê roxo and lapacho are used for several different species of Tabebuia trees that are used interchangeably in herbal medicine systems. Tabebuia impetiginosa is the preferred species employed in herbal medicine, however, it is often referred to by its other botanical name, Tabebuia avellanedae. Both refer to the same tree.

Taheebo Tea, or Pau d’Arco Tea, is derived from the inner bark of the Tabebuia impetiginosa or Tabebuia avellanedae tree. To extract the active chemicals within Taheebo requires the decoction method of brewing – boiling the bark for at least 15 minutes.

The tea has a long and well-documented history of use by the indigenous people of South America, many reports predating the Incas. South American tribes living thousands of miles apart have employed it for the same medicinal purposes for hundreds of years, including malaria, anemia, colitis, respiratory problems, colds, cough, flu, fungal infections, fever, arthritis and rheumatism, snakebite, poor circulation, boils, syphilis, and cancer.

The main plant chemicals in Taheebo include: acetaldehydes, alpha-lapachone, ajugols, anisic acid, anthraquinones, benzoic acids, benzenes, beta-lapachone, carboxaldehydes, chromium, chrysanthemin, dehydro-alpha-lapachone, dehydroisolapachone, deoxylapachol, flavonoids, furanonaphthoquinones, hydrochlorolapachol, 2-hydroxy-3-methyl-quinone, 6-hydroxy-mellein, iso-8-hydroxy-lariciresinol, kigelinone, lapachenol, lapachenole, lapachol, lapachones, menaquinones, 4-methoxyphenol, naphthoquinones, paeonidin-3-cinnamyl-sophoroside, phthiolol, quercetin, tabebuin, tectoquinone, vanillic acid, vanillin, veratric acid, veratric aldehyde, and xyloidone.

Taheebo Tea Folklore & Worldwide Use

The native Indians of South American countries have used Taheebo/Pau d’Arco for thousands of years. The Guarani and Tupi-Nambo tribes, in particular, used great quantities of Taheebo Tea.

Several South American tribes have used Taheebo wood for centuries to make their hunting bows. The tribes called the Taheebo tree Tajy, meaning to have strength and vigour, or simply, The Divine Tree. They used the bark as a tea or tonic to treat many different conditions for the same strength and vigour it provided their bows.

Legends say that the Vikings sold the tea and believed that it originated on the moon. The Czars of Russia reportedly drank Taheebo Tea, and even Gandhi supposedly was a faithful drinker of a daily cup. The South American Indians shared the tea with early Portuguese and Spanish settlers who further spread its use.

A few of the many examples and folklore uses of Taheebo Tea: Costa Ricans take a decoction of Taheebo tea for the treatment of colds, headaches, fever and constipation. In Panama, the Taheebo bark is used as a treatment for boils, dysentery and wounds. In Guatemala, a Taheebo tea decoction of the bark is regularly given to dogs as a protection against rabies. Mexicans make a tea with the bark and leaves to reduce temperatures in fevers. Columbians use the Taheebo bark as either an infusion or decoction as a gargle for diseases of the throat and for fevers. The Bolivian Kallawaya believe that the tea purifies the blood.

Taking Taheebo in a decocted tea form — boiling the bark for at least 15 minutes — is an excellent way to ensure all the active properties are released and ingested. See our recommended brewing method.
