Neem (Dongoyaro), scientifically known as Azadirachta indica, is a tropical tree that may be found in many countries of Africa and Nigeria. Because practically every part of the tree, including the flowers, seeds, fruit, roots, and leaves, can be utilized for one or more purposes, it is a very versatile and valuable medical plant. Many individuals who are aficionados of traditional medicine consider neem to be one of the most popular medicinal plants, and these people frequently extol its efficacy in the treatment of numerous health problems.
Each part of the plant contains many active ingredients that give it antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, and wound-healing properties. Dongoyaro is often used as a potent medicine against fever, bile duct disorders, ulcers, and other ailments. Many people in Nigeria who have discovered its therapeutic potential use its leaf and bark to great success. While it is important to use caution when it comes to dosage, neem (dongoyaro) can be quite useful when used properly.
The following are some of the potential health benefits you can get from boiling its leaf and drinking the tea or just using it in general:
1. May benefit liver and kidney health: Oxidative stress, which is caused by a buildup of free radicals, is the cause of many chronic health problems. However, neem has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may aid in the battle against oxidative stress, hence improving liver and kidney health.
2. Improved skin health:
Neem consumption can have a positive impact on your skin. Its seed oil is notably high in oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linoleic acids, three fatty acids that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial effects, all of which are beneficial to skin health.
3. Antimalarial properties:
Many traditional medicine practitioners in Nigeria have used neem as a malaria treatment, and the reason for this is that it contains active compounds called limonoids, which are known to target malaria-infected cells.
4. It may help manage diabetes:
Neem leaf extract has been shown in some studies to be an effective treatment for diabetes due to its ability to revive the cells that produce insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels by lowering blood sugar levels.
5. It may benefit dental health:
Neem can help maintain alkaline levels in saliva, fight germs, and reduce microorganisms in the mouth, so it may be beneficial to your teeth if you consume it regularly.
6. Gut health is improved:
Neem has antibacterial and antifungal properties that are beneficial to the body. Its antibacterial characteristics may aid in the killing of harmful bacteria, thereby cleansing the gut, while its antifungal capabilities may have a positive impact on the body.
