In India, a rich history surrounds the neem tree – A tree whose many uses and ability to flourish in tough growing conditions inspired its botanical name, Azadirachta indica which translates to "The free tree of India."
Neem is used internally to purify the body, externally to beautify the body, and therapeutically to soothe and heal the body inside and out. We blend the highest quality, organically grown Neem leaves, twigs, and flowers to create this purifying supplement. Traditionally used to help soothes skin irritations and support oral hygiene, Neem is also renowned for its support of healthy, radiant skin, hair, and nails. It is excellent when combined with Turmeric Formula.
Neem, perhaps the best responsible alternative to Goldenseal, is renown for millennia as a veritable pharmacy with every aspect of this 50 foot tall tree capable of offering a wealth of health.
In many cultures Neem is highly regarded as a source of profound medicine, in fact ancient legends in India elevate it to the status of being a portal to heaven. It is the main cold catabolic bitter tonic used in several cultures and because it has molecules in it that can mimic the hormones of insects and microbes it has a broad range of anti-pest applications. At least 400 million people consume Neem every single day!
Neem benefits parallel the actions of: bitters, tea tree, garlic, and aloe.

The name Neem possibly arises from Nibandha, meaning “attachment to” and possibly referring to the auspiciousness of being attached to Neem. Also possibly from Nimi meaning “an instant.” Azadirachta ndica is derived from the Persian name of this remarkable tree: Azad Dirakht Sindhu, which literally means the “noble tree of freedom from India.”
Neem leaves 3, soft twigs and flowers (Azadirachta indica) with polyphenol flavonoids like quercetin, sterols like nimbasterol and the very important terpanoid phytoecdysteroids like azadirachtin.
