Here Are 4 Healthy Reasons Why You Should Consume Neem Leaf Tea

Neem, often known as "the village pharmacy," is a medicinal plant that can be used in all of its components, including leaves, flowers, seeds, fruit, roots, and bark. Manuscripts dating back hundreds of years reveal some of the tree's ancient uses.

Various portions of the plant have yielded over 140 different active chemicals. Neem's antioxidant, antibacterial, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, and wound-healing capabilities are due to these active components.

Neem's potential health benefits.

Although scientific study into neem is still in its early stages, it shows promise for a variety of health advantages, including blood sugar management, as well as hair, skin, teeth, liver, and kidney health. Keep in mind that more human research is required.

1. It has the potential to improve dental and oral health.

In India, chewing neem bark to improve oral hygiene is a common practice. The antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immune-boosting qualities of neem may help to maintain good oral health. Although more research is needed, studies show that neem can help treat gingivitis, periodontitis, and tooth decay.

2. It helps the liver and kidneys.

The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities of neem may aid in the fight against oxidative stress, which may benefit liver and kidney health. An accumulation of unstable chemicals known as free radicals causes oxidative stress. External sources increase the presence of free radicals, which your body naturally produces as a product of metabolism.

Some medications, such as cancer medications, pain relievers, and antipsychotics, can cause oxidative stress, which can lead to tissue damage in the liver and kidneys.

3. Malaria-preventive properties

Limonoids are active chemicals found in neem. In mouse research, limonoids were found to be as effective as chloroquine in targeting malaria-infected cells. However, several test-tube investigations reported no favorable effect of neem extract on malaria outcomes. Keep in mind that neem is currently not commonly used to treat malaria.

4. Diabetes control

According to several animal research, neem leaf extract could be a possibility for novel diabetic medicines. Because neem extract may help revive cells that produce insulin, a hormone that helps control blood sugar and lower blood sugar levels, it may help revive cells that create insulin.
