Pau d’arco is now prized for its anti-fungal properties, especially for treating cases of candida. Candida is a necessary yeast which sits within the intestinal tract, in small amounts it aids absorption but can easily get overgrown if the bodies PH levels become unbalanced, resulting in a number of possible symptoms. Pau d’arco is thought to be particularly effective at treating this condition because it contains the compounds lapachol and xyloidon which are said to inhibit candida growth.
Pau d’arco has also been praised for its anti-inflammatory effects, attributed to the presence of Nrf2, a protein which protects against oxidative stress caused by inflammation. Not only this, but pau d’arco contains a number of antioxidant compounds, including quercetin, flavonoids and carnosol that protect against free radicals and could slow down the ageing process.
