Long before humankind set foot on the rugged, breathtaking slopes of the Andes Mountains, the pau d’arco tree flourished there—fortunately.For without the help of this tall, gangly friend, the early Americans may have had a far more difficult time in their fight for survival. From the pau d’arco, they learned to make a strong, flexible bow—from whence we get the name of the tree itself— that enabled them to hunt effectively.
And better still, they reaped a range of health benefits that supported long and healthy living.
