In Dr. Nakamura’s book The Miracles of Taheebo Extract in Cancer and Other Health Problems he states
“The Taheebo extract which has the greatest medicinal value is the extract from the tree bark from “Tabebuia avellanedae” which blooms with a reddish purple mower. This tree is one of over 250 varieties of the Bignoniaeceae (the family). Other synonymous names are the Tabebuia impetiginosa of Argentina and Tabebuia heptaphylla tree of Brazil.
Since there are many preparations related to the true Taheebo extract and sold on the market as “Pau D’Arco,” Lapacho Colorado,” the buyer must be beware, as these preparations do not have the excellent medical qualities as the true Taheebo preparation and may not be the best Taheebo extract (Tabebuia avellanedae).
The Taheebo extract contains many compounds with different biological activities and can be consumed as a nutritional supplement and be used as an adjunct to other treatment drugs prescribed by your physician in various diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc.”
