The ant tree is so called because all the cavities in its trunk and branches are populated by ants. The curative properties of this tree are well known to the indigenous peoples of Mexico and Peru who call it the divine tree. Its bark is a natural antibiotic that has long been used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of infectious diseases.
The Pau D’Arco natural product is made from the internal layer of ant tree bark. It kills bacteria and viruses and also has an anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, it increases immunity.
Lapahol is the main ingredient of the bark that has an antibacterial effect. It is found on the inside of the bark and prevents the growth and reproduction of gram-positive and gram-negative microbodies.
Lapahol can also slow down the production of enzymes which explains its antiviral effect since viruses can’t multiply without enzymes. Ant tree bark can destroy the viruses of flu, herpes and a number of others.
Its antifungal properties stem from xyloidine, which when combined with lapahol, suppresses the growth of many types of fungi, including vaginal fungi (candida, trihofiton). Even the wood itself is extremely resistant to fungi which never grow on it.
The anti-parasite effect manifests in its ability to inhibit the reproduction and growth of intracellular parasites. It also prevents invasions of micro pathogens by creating a most adverse environment for adaptable parasites. This is why ant tree is routinely included in herbal anti-parasite programs.
Because it also improves immunity, this unique tree can be used to combat allergies and autoimmune conditions in the body without the fear that they may get worse as a result. The bark increases the non-specific resistance of the body, boosting the cellular and humoral immunity. But, the most important thing is that all of the properties of the ant tree bark listed above have been thoroughly researched and confirmed. It has also been proven that none of the ingredients found in the bark can have the same effect on their own.
