The Neem is a tropical evergreen tree whose leaves have been not just utilised but worshipped as a medical marvel for thousands of years. Overlooked for so long by western medicine, maybe its time you finally gave this majestic elixir a chance.
The Neem tree has long stood out in the harsh, tropical environment of the Asian subcontinent like a pillar of hope. The fact that it can survive with so little water, so much sunlight and intense direct heat has been a source of fascination to its native people for so long. It is even repellant to local bugs and insects.
And it's not just a symbolic fascination either - Ayurvedic medicine has embraced all the healing powers of the tree for as long as they can remember. Its medicinal properties have been common knowledge for over 4000 years now. Even its name is a reference to its ability to cure.

And it is exactly that which it is truly considered - a curative panacea. The Mexicans have the Aloe Vera tree; the Australians have the Tea Tree, the Koreans have Ginseng but the Indians have this wonder tree, unique in its ability to cure so many problems. Swanson Neem Leaf could well be the cure you've been looking for but never knew existed.
One of the more suitable pieces of nomenclature for the Neem tree is 'nature's drugstore' and when you consider the range of different uses it has been employed for, it's perhaps not surprising.
Perhaps, as ever, its healing roots are found when we look inside the leaf and see that it is in possession of some particularly clever phytochemical compounds. Within these we find antioxidant flavonoids such as quercetin, catechin, carotene and ascorbic acid. Each of which play a crucial role in the battle against free radical cells. Slowing and even inhibiting them before they can pose real danger to our cellular structure.
