Taheebo and Its Amazing BenefitsPosted 03/17/14 in [Life Force Products & Your Health] | Comments Off on Taheebo and Its Amazing Benefits
Life Force International Taheebo (pau d’arco, ipe roxo, lapacho) is an extract made from the inner bark of the South American purple lapacho tree. While many people buy the bark from this tree in organic food stores and have to drink many cups of the infusion every day, an extract allows the essential oils and phytonutrients to be infused into the alcohol and is a much more efficient delivery system. And you can rest easy that Life Force sources their Taheebo from ecologically sound, safe places and it is manufactured here in the United States in a certified Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) facility.
Here are some more facts about this incredible compound I’ve learned over the years:
- Taheebo and tabebuia are interchangeable terms
- Lapachol, found in Taheebo, stabilizes blood sugar.
- Lapachol, α and β-lapachone are naphthoquinones, which promote healthy blood clotting after injury.
- Taheebo in this tincture form shows excellent anti-oxidant capabilities, equal to BHT and Vitamin E.
- Lapachol has antiinflammatory properties
- The properties in taheebo have shown promise in testing against the bacteria that causes ulcers
- Taheebo shows other antibacterial activity, and could be placed on an adhesive bandage.
- The pau d’arco tree is the only tree in the rainforest that fungus does not grow on.

- The longer you can hold it under your tongue, the longer you expose the blood vessels to the compounds, thus increasing translingual delivery. However, some prefer to only keep it at 1 minute.
- Unlike taheebo capsules and tea, you can use Life Force Taheebo topically.
