WildCrafted- Wild foods have a much broader medicinal range than a cultivated plant due to their constant adaptation to changing conditions of their natural environment. By consuming these plants, our DNA receives a calibration to enhance the energy production, immune response, and stress handling capabilities. The science of epigenetics is proving that our DNA can be improved by consuming plants with a strong genetic profile.
Broad Spectrum Anti-pathogen- With immune challenges ranging from mutated bacteria and viruses to yeast overgrowth and parasites, we need a strategy. Pau d’Arco is safe for daily use but also very effective against virtually every known pathogen.

Antioxidant– Pau d’Arco has been found to support the broad spectrum antioxidant effects similar to Vitamin E. It has been proven to have great cardiovascular protective effects. One of the ingredients in Pau d’Arco is beta-lapachone, a potent catalyst for a molecule called NAD+. By increasing NAD+, Pau d’Arco helps improve mitochondrial ATP production which is essential for virtually all healing processes carried out in the body. Pau d’Arco also contains quercetin, an antioxidant shown to cleanse the blood and combat inflammation and viral illnesses. It also acts as a natural antihistamine
