What is Palo Azul?

Palo Azul is a small tree native to Mexico and Southwestern North America. Palo Azul means "blue stick" in Spanish, which refers to the vibrant turquoise blue pigment released when its bark is soaked or boiled in water. Some cultures regard this blue liquid as sacred. Palo Azul is also known as Kidney Wood and is scientifically referred to as Eysenhardtia polystachya.

Is Palo Azul a New Herbal Remedy?

No, Palo Azul isn’t new. In fact, Palo Azul has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. However, Palo Azul has recently gained incredible popularity as more people discover its health benefits.

What are the Health Benefits of Palo Azul?

As a natural cleansing and detoxifying agent, Palo Azul provides numerous health benefits:

Clean out Kidneys

Palo Azul’s diuretic qualities stimulate kidney function, removing toxins, bacteria, and waste, helping to prevent kidney stones and urinary tract infections.

Aid Digestion

The tannins and flavonoids in Palo Azul help to break down fats in the digestive system, lessening indigestion and constipation.
Reduce inflammation - Palo Azul naturally decreases the protein levels that increase inflammation in the body, providing relief to those suffering from conditions like arthritis.

Lower Blood Pressure

Palo Azul has been shown to relax the muscles around blood vessels for better blood flow and lower blood pressure.

Improve Cholesterol Levels

Palo Azul’s antioxidant and anti-hyperlipidemic properties are linked to lowered LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides while increasing HDL (good cholesterol).

Lose Weight

Palo Azul contributes to weight loss by aiding in increasing metabolism, building muscle mass, reducing abdominal fat, and improving insulin sensitivity.

What Does Palo Azul Tea Taste Like?

Palo Azul tea has a smooth, subtle, and earthy flavor. Many people describe the taste as similar to plain water. Its light flavor makes it an excellent choice for adding lemon, honey, ginger, or cinnamon to enhance its taste.

What Happens to the Color of Palo Azul When Brewed?

One of the more unique characteristics of Palo Azul is its color transition from brown to turquoise blue during the brewing process. The blue color is a refraction of light. Longer brewing, of 30 minutes or more, produces a deep blue hue. Pouring the tea into a clear glass and holding it to the light intensifies the blue tones.

A standard dosage of Palo Azul is 1-2 teaspoons of bark per cup of hot water. Drinking 1-2 cups of Palo Azul tea per day for general wellness is recommended.
