Every part of the tree contains some level of active compounds, which have been found to be useful in organic and natural cosmetics, medicine and agriculture. The Neem tree originates from India but is also found in parts of Africa and southeast Asia. Neem is part of traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Neem Oil is derived from the seeds of the Neem fruit. Neem Oil and Neem leaves are the most common forms in which Neem is used since they are renewable. Harvesting the Neem Oil and leaves does not harm the fast-growing tree.

Azadirachta indica - That's the botanical name for neem. Indica shows the tree's origin, India.The botanical name translates into: "The Free Tree Of India". It is often referred to as the "miracle tree". Another common name for neem is Margosa.

Neem belongs to the botanical family Meliaceae. That means it is related to the mahogany tree. Neem is a very attractive, fast growing and evergreen tree. It has a straight trunk and the tree can reach a height of 30 metres and more, though 15 to 20 metres is the average. The bark is hard, rough and scaly, fissured even in young trees. It's often brown, but in older trees it can be pale or greyish-black. Spreading branches with dark green leaves form a dense, rounded canopy, up to 20 metres across.

Leaves are alternate (not opposite each other along the branches) and consist of several leaflets with serrated edges. You can see the leaves in the banner of this site.The flowers are large clusters of up to 250 individual white blooms. The whole cluster can be quite large, but the individual flowers are very small and the aroma is just delicious. The olive like, edible fruit is oval to round and thin skinned with a very bitter taste. It is green initially and turns yellow when ripe. Every fruit contains 1-3 seeds.Neem is easy to grow in a wide range of temperatures and conditions, and the tree can live for 150 to 200 years.

All parts of the neem plant have been used for many centuries in India including the bark for oral care, the oil for skin care, pet care and as an insecticide, the leaves for blood pressure, blood sugar, etc...

If you have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. Neem is a very powerful substance. It has been widely used in India for several thousand years, without any side effects. Also, in traditional Ayurvedic medicine neem is often prescribed together with other herbs that neutralize neem's toxicity such as turmeric. Neem is as a powerful contraceptive. Pregnant women or women who wish to conceive should be very careful and seek medical advice before using neem in great quantities.

Neem has achieved high status in the US. It is often associated with claims that may prove to be false. Seek medical advice if you have a medical condition. Children and Neem While Zatural has very little evidence of extreme side effects documented, the University of Michigan Health System does suggest that neem oils should be kept away from children. According to the website, there is a documented report that suggests a few infants developed Reyes-Syndrome symptoms shortly after consuming neem oil in supplement form. These infants ingested more than 5ml of the oil, which eventually lead to the death of the patients.

As of 2010, however, no deaths in the adult population have been reported. Furthermore, the University website states that until more information is gathered on neem as a supplement, pregnant women should also stay away from the herb due to health risks to the fetus. Stomach Effects Ironically, while most supplement users take neem supplements for the treatment of stomach disorders, the University of Michigan Health System also states that some stomach symptoms may worsen in some users. In a few reported cases, patients who consumed neem oils were found to have an increased risk of diarrhea and stomach discomfort. As a result of these risks, the University recommends that patients stay within a dosage range of 10 to 20ml in order to limit the onset of adverse effects.

Other Risks While more research needs to be conducted in order to determine the consistency in onset of documented side effects to neem, does offer helpful suggestions in monitoring your intake of neem. According to the website, persons suffering from medical conditions that result in fatigue or physical "wasting" should not consume neem due to the risk of stomach complications. In addition, the website also recommends that patients with liver or kidney disease also steer clear of the supplement. As of 2010, no documented cases of drug interaction exist regarding neem and other medications.
