Neem is sometimes called “the village pharmacy,” as it is a virtual cure-all and because it is one of the unique medicinal plants that virtually every aspect of the tree can be used as a medicine: leaves, flowers, seeds, fruit, roots, and bark. Historically, neem has been used to treat pain, fever, and infections. It is used externally to treat skin conditions, and is commonly used to prevent gum disease. Neem cleanses the blood, liver, and kidneys helping to support proper immune function and overall health.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, neem is recognized for tonifying the Spleen and Stomach, supporting Liver and Kidney function, and Clearing Damp Heat. It is used to promote skin health and treat diabetes, heart disease, digestive disorders, viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. It also enhances immune immune function.
