Neem Leaf aka Azadirachta Indica – Antimicrobial
Neem Leaf aka Azadirachta Indica aka melia azadirachta
Neem leaf by AMG Naturals is powdered azadirachta indica (aka melia azadirachta) put into vegetarian capsules with nothing else added (no fillers, binders, flowing agents, etc.)
Melia is an amazing plant that has been used therapeutically in India for at least 2,500 years. The word neem is reported to come from the Sanskrit language and roughly means “the healer and illness reliever”.
Neem Leaf is a great broad spectrum anti-microbial that has been shown to be effective in treating various microbes. Neem has been used for fungi, bacteria, parasites, virus (including herpes), and spirochetes. It also works against drug-resistant bacterial infections including both gram-positive (S. aureus) and gram negative (E. coli and P. aeruginosa) bacteria.
Research has demonstrated that even drug resistant candida forms were able to treated by taking neem. One of the major benefits also reported of neem is that opposed to antibiotics, it does not harm beneficial intestinal flora.
Neem has also been shown to be protective of the liver. It also stimulates immune T-cell production in times of infection, and can also act to block pro-inflammatory prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are one of the major sources of pain in chronic conditions.
Azadirachta Indica contains small amounts of catechin and quercetin, which both have an anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine effects.
Neem has been used to successfully treat malaria as well as vitiligo, and has been reported to increase brain serotonin levels and even have anti-anxiety properties. Melia has also been shown to be effective at lowering cholesterol.
One interesting effect is that without decreasing libido or sperm count, neem has been used effectively as a male contraceptive although I wouldn’t take bets on it. In parts of Africa women use it also for the same purpose (so you may not want to use it if you are trying to get pregnant).
Dr. Anderson mainly uses Neem Leaf as a broad spectrum anti-microbial (AK testing shows it to be much better than neem oil against most microbes and patients report it is much better tolerated).
It is contra-indicated during pregnancy, nursing, and in young children.
