Products based on leaf, bark, flower or seed extracts from the neem plant have generated interest in the plant globally due to the range of proven beneficial health and nutritional effects of such products. Through years of scientific studies and experimentation, extracts from the neem plant have shown antibacterial, antifungal, anti-parasitic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and insect repelling properties among others.
Neem oil has particularly been used in maintaining hair health, treating skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and herpes among others. These effects are based on the antiperiodic, depurative antiseptic and anti-pruritic attributes of the plant.
Neem plant products can be used alone or in combination with other products in treating other conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, urinary tract infections and gynecological disorders. Importantly, neem products can be applied both internally and externally with minimal side effects.
