The medicinal properties of Neem have been part of Indian history since time immemorial. The earliest Sanskrit medical writings refer to the benefits of Neem’s fruits, seeds, oil, leaves, roots and bark; and all of these are used in the Indian Ayurvedic and Unani systems of medicine. In Ayurvedic literature Neem is described in the following manner: ‘Neem bark is cool, bitter, astringent, acrid and cooling. It is useful to alleviate tiredness, cough, fever, loss of appetite and worm infestation. It heals wounds and vitiated conditions of kapha, also vomiting, skin diseases, excessive thirst, and diabetes. Neem leaves are also reported to be beneficial for eye disorders and insect poisons. It treats vatic disorder and is anti-leprotic.
Its fruits are bitter, purgative, anti-hemorrhagic and anthelmintic. It is claimed that Neem provides an answer to many incurable diseases. Traditionally Neem products have been used against a wide variety of diseases which include heat-rash, boils, wounds, jaundice, leprosy, skin disorders, stomach ulcers, chicken pox, etc. Modern research also confirms Neem’s curative powers in cases of many diseases and provides indications that Neem may be used much more widely in the future.

About 50 years ago, when researchers first began looking at Neem, they carefully detailed the biological activities of its various parts. That literature, unfortunately, is not available except in specialized medical libraries.
Current reports generally note that Neem is recognized as being of benefit for a long list of ‘antis’ including:
• Anti-pyretic (fever)
• Anti-gastric (ulcer)
• Anti-complement (similar to antioxidant)
Antioxidants in Neem
One of the hottest topics in the natural foods industry today is antioxidants, probably because they play a critical role in preventing the damage that plays a significant role in initiating chronic degenerative diseases such as Atherosclerosis, Diabetes, Heart disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s as well as speeding up the plain old (pun intended!) process of aging.
Oxidative stress is a natural process that occurs as cells produce energy. Free radicals, a by-product of this process, damage cells (including DNA) and tissue. The problem occurs when the body’s resources for fighting these free radicals or repairing the damage they cause aren’t adequate. Antioxidants are in many foods, and many of the health benefits of foods like blueberries, broccoli, and cranberries are directly related to their antioxidant levels.
The ORAC test (oxygen radical absorbance capacity), shows that all forms of Neem are extraordinarily high in antioxidants, and far higher than foods on the high-antioxidant lists. Along with its immune-boosting properties and high antioxidant levels, this may help to explain why Neem is known around the world as “The Village Pharmacy.”
