Triplaris Surinamensis

Tangarana is a long slender tree growing 10-20 meters tall. A member of the buckwheat family, it often houses a specific species of ants in its hollow trunk.
A bark infusion is used throughout the Amazon as a 'cure all' and to treat intenstinal infections and diarrhea. The juice of the bark is used to treat toothache. Also used as vermifuge and for the treatment of herpes. The thin, papery bark is delicately sliced off with a machete and boiled, taken twice daily for several months.
