What is neem leaf extract powder?
Neem (Azadirachta indica) is a type of evergreen tree native to India. In Ayurvedic medicine, neem extract has long been used for a variety of health-related purposes including asthma, constipation, cough, diabetes, gastric ulcers, indigestion, periodontal disease, and urinary tract infection.
Neem is also purported to reduce inflammation, improve liver health, alleviate pain, preserve eyesight, stimulate the immune system, and protect against heart disease.
Neem is sold in capsule, tincture, powder, oil, cream, and mouthwash forms. While neem oil is generally applied to the scalp or skin to treat conditions like dandruff and acne, the extract of the neem leaf is typically taken orally. In some cases, the bark, flowers, and fruit of the neem tree are also used medicinally.
Benefits of neem leaf extract powder
Neem may help fight plaque buildup and prevent gingivitis, several studies suggest.
In a 2017 study, 20 subjects were given mouthwash with either chlorhexidine gluconate, a substance commonly used to prevent gum disease, or neem. The researchers found neem mouthwash was as effective as the medication and suggested that neem may be a cost-effective alternative to chlorhexidine gluconate treatments.
In an earlier study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2004, 36 men were assigned to six weeks of treatment with either a gel containing neem extract or a mouthwash containing chlorhexidine gluconate. Study results showed that the neem-based gel was more effective in reducing plaque buildup than the mouthwash.
In addition, a study published in the Indian Journal of Dental Research in 1999 determined that the use of chewing sticks made with neem extract may help protect against the buildup of bacteria associated with cavity formation and periodontal disease.
Anecdotal evidence suggests neem oil helps relieve dandruff, but the precise mechanism of action is unclear. Dandruff can be caused by dry skin, a fungal infection, contact dermatitis, or other skin conditions.
Neem oil’s natural antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties may help treat the underlying cause of a flaking scalp and relieve symptoms.
In laboratory studies, a terpene found in neem called nimbidin was found to inhibit the inflammatory response. This may account for its potential success in treating inflammatory skin conditions that cause dandruff.
The topical application of neem oil may be helpful in the treatment of acne and other skin conditions due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
In laboratory studies, a proprietary preparation of neem oil using solid lipid nanoparticle technology was found to have an antibacterial effect on acne-causing microbes. The study authors noted that the oil may be used successfully as a long-term acne treatment.
Neem shows promise in the treatment of gastric ulcers, suggests a 2009 report from Phytotherapy Research. Analyzing findings from preliminary studies, scientists concluded that neem bark extract supplements may help aid in ulcer control possibly by inhibiting the secretion of gastric acids.
A 2011 research review published in Cancer Biology & Therapy indicates that neem may offer anti-cancer benefits, including immune-stimulating and tumor-suppressing properties.
However, there is currently a lack of clinical trials testing the effectiveness of neem in the prevention or treatment of any type of cancer.
