12 Important Ways Neem Helps Your Immune Health

Neem is a wonder herb for immune health. Neem has been used by the people of southeast Asia and India for thousands of years because of its benefits as an all-purpose support for the body.  Neem is a medicinal product derived from the neem tree which grows in hot climates.  In India, neem is considered a pharmacy unto itself.

Neem is a very important herb for highly sensitive people since HSPs are so physically challenged because of their sensitivity to stimulus and as a result their immune health can be compromised.  The tendency for their nervous systems to become overwhelmed and exhausted from stress means that highly sensitive people need all the help they can get.

  2. neem is good for the hair and also helps with head lice
  3. neem is wonderful for teeth and gums.  Gum disease is known to cause inflammation in the body and to be a factor in facilitating the development of cancer, a disease that HSPs have to be concerned about
  4. neem is antibacterial
  5. neem is antifungical
  6. neem is antiviral
  7. neem is antimicrobial and in some forms is used for wound cleaning

      Hi Jim, I use it daily in pill form. There are many reputable providers of neem. You can go to a local health food store or try online sources like: Banyan Botanicals, Lifespa and Vitamin Shoppe. I do not know more about alternative ways to take neem but you could search online to learn more.
