Scientists have discovered two active compounds in Taheebo Tea - lapachol and beta-lapachone - with the power to kill bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites.
They've also shown great potential in fighting the spread of cancer.
Inflammation is the root cause of most diseases, and can result in an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other conditions.
Drinking Taheebo Tea has been shown to help protect against the damage that caused by inflammation.
Taheebo Tea works as a detoxifier as it stimulates the digestive system to maintain a clean and healthy body.
Drinking Taheebo Tea helps your body get rid of toxins and aids digestion and regularity.
A recent review published in the scientific journal Molecules examined the phytochemistry and pharmacological activity behind Taheebo Tea. While acknowledging that further studies are needed, the review stated the following:
There are numerous studies confirming that extracts or compounds isolated from Tabebuia Impetiginosa have various pharmacological activities such as anti-obesity, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-psoriatic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer activities.
That’s a very scientific way of saying that Taheebo Tea holds huge potential in the treatment of everything from cancer and arthritis to obesity and infections — and far more.
Specifically, scientists have discovered two active compounds in the tea — lapachol and beta-lapachone — with the power to kill bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites. They have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
Last but certainly not least, a 2005 study published in Oncology Reports found that lapachol also has great potential in fighting the spread of cancer.
"Taheebo Tea has a long-standing reputation for fighting many diseases and conditions. But it’s far more important to note that modern science is increasingly validating many of these claims through research."
Nearly 100 species of the Taheebo tree have been discovered, but only a handful of them produce the potent bark used to make this unique herbal tea.
This is something that the natives of South and Central America figured out hundreds of years ago. Taheebo Tea has been called the “tea of the Incas” — and some say it even predates the Incan empire, which was established in 1438.
It can be hard to know with certainty exactly when Taheebo Tea was discovered. But what has been established is that the natives of many Central and South American countries have embraced Taheebo Tea — and used it to fight everything from edema to infections — for centuries.
While it’s most known for its use in the Amazon rainforest, its reputation and its reach actually extend much further to such places as Argentina, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Tradition shows us it’s been used in Costa Rica to treat colds, fever, and constipation; in Panama to treat boils, dysentery, and wounds; in Mexico to reduce fevers, and in Colombia for diseases of the throat. It’s even used in Guatemala to protect dogs from rabies.
Taheebo Tea has a long history — and goes by many different names that reflect its unique place in world culture and history.
The Latin name for the tree is Tabebuia Avellanedae or Tabebuia Impetiginosa. But it is commonly referred to as the Taheebo Tree, as well as Ipe Roxo, Lapacho, and Pau D'Arco.
Pau D’Arco, loosely translated, means bow stick in Portuguese — a name that reflects how native South Americans used the wood of this mighty tree to make hunting bows.
Because Taheebo Tea may affect the blood’s clotting ability, it could interfere with blood-thinning drugs, including aspirin. It should, therefore, not be taken by anyone with these conditions or by anyone preparing for or recovering from surgery.
As with any medicinal tea, your doctor should be consulted before taking Taheebo Tea in conjunction with any other medicine or herbal supplement.
Taheebo Tea has not been proven safe for pregnant or lactating women or for children and should therefore be avoided by these individuals.
