Treasure of the Incas may be enjoyed y children as well as adults.
At the height of the opulent Incan Empire, its size and power was comparable to that of ancient Rome. Incan medicine was well advanced for the time of its civilization. Herbs, roots, bark and flowers were gathered from the lush jungle areas for medicinal purposes. The Callawaya are still using Lapacho today for its profound healing properties.
Dr. Theodore Meyer, discovering the special characteristics of the Argentine Lapacho tree, began researching the chemical properties of the Lapacho bark and its potential in treating degenerative diseases over 40 years ago.
The Argentine Lapacho tree, characterized by its light lavender flowers, has been found to be two or three times more effective than the Brazilian Ipe Roxo or the Bolivian Taheebo tree.
