The plant Pau D’Arco is a large tree that blossoms pretty pink flowers. The bark of the tree has a long history of being used as a medicinal by humans mainly as an immunostimulant, general tonic, an adaptogen, or for candida.

The main constituent or active compound, lapachol, can be slightly toxic in high doses and is a very powerful disinfectant with potential antibiotic properties.

Pau D’arco has been used in some male enhancement products, although upon further research the reason is slightly unclear. Most of the potential benefits of pau d’arco supplementation has no correlation with penis enlargement or any kind of sexual benefits.

How Does Pau D’Arco Affect Penis Enlargement?

Clears Candida


Although there is not much of a link because candida problems and male performance, having a weakened state of homeostasis can slow down any progress. We don’t suggest that clearing away candida problems would contribute to your PE gains but it’s certainly a health benefit overall.

Do We Recommend Taking Pau D’Arco?

No. Despite possible health benefits, the role that lapachol has on the reproductive system may be harmful or counterproductive. Even without that, there’s no evidence to suggest that pau d’arco supplements could support any gains in penis enlargement. In fact, I would advise to stay away from male supplements that feature pau d’arco as a component as an indication that not much research has gone into the ingredients of their product.
