Does anybody here take Pau D'Arco in powder form? Do you think that it would be ok to just mix it with your meal?
And also...for how long can you take Pau D'Arco? I read somewhere that you can't take it for a longer period of time??
I already bought a 1pound of bark for tea and also 1 pound bark powder and now I am not sure how to use it. I read about the tincture, which was made with the powder or you can take capsules so I thought that instead of taking pills ( you are suppose to take it with meal) that you can just mix it with your meal...what do you think?
Raintree has a pound of powdered pau d' arc for $20 USD plus $9.95 USD shipping. Even with the pumped up shipping charge, not a bad price. Read the pdf file on the website on pau d' arco. Anecdotally at least, pau d'arco is effective against candida, but the active compounds are NOT very water soluable. Therefore, a tincture or decoction are the recommended methods for taking pau d' arco. I would probably make a decoction rather than simply sprinkle the pau d' arco on my food.
Rain Tree Nutricionals will respond to questions made by phone or e-mail. I ordered a pound of cat's claw from Rain Tree, and I was very pleased with the purchase. The product appeared to be fresh, and a bulk purchase of one pound is MUCH, MUCH cheaper than the equivalent amount of product in capsules.
