Benefits of Pata de Vaca Tea

Pata de Vaca Tea is recognized as an excellent ally in balancing blood sugar levels (diabetes) and controlling blood pressure. An ideal tea for diabetics and hypertensives. In the case of diabetes, Pata de Vaca acts in the reduction of renal glycosuria, i.e. the reduction of glucose present in the urine. By stimulating insulin production in the pancreas, Pata de Vaca Tea favours the elimination of glucose (sugar) through urine. However, this effect only occurs in diabetic people. At the same time, Pata de Vaca will contribute to the well-being of the bladder, kidneys, and intestines.

Pata de Vaca Tea also promotes the reduction of the retention of liquids. This medicinal tea is also suitable for hypertension because it helps to relax the veins and arteries. Pata de Vaca Tea is recommended for problems such as urinary infections, kidney stones and diarrhoea.


Cow Paw is an ornamental tree commonly used in landscaping decoration in urban areas. The term “Pata de Vaca” is associated with the “v” shape of its leaves, which resemble the shape of the feet of cows and oxen (animals). The Cow Paw belongs to the genus “Bauhinia” named after the botanist brothers Jean Bauhin and Gaspard Bauhin. There are 300 species of this genus, of which about 200 are in Brazil in the Atlantic Rainforest.

From the use of wood as a source of energy, the leaves, and flowers of this plant are used as food for animals and introduced in the production of natural medications. “Bauhinia forficata” is the only species of this genus that produces white flowers. This species is known for its rounded, fragrant flowers that develop between July and September. During the flowering season, the Pata de Vaca is invaded by hummingbirds and bees. This medium-sized tree is one of the most important species in the regeneration of degraded areas.
