Since centuries, the benefits of this amazing plant have been exploited and used to achieve better health. While it does not only have healing properties, it is also known for the amazing preventive properties that it embodies. We take a look at why including neem in your life would be a good idea.

Anti-cancer benefits

Neem is known to have a host of medicinal benefits, one of the essential being, its ability to kill cancerous cells. All of our bodies have these cancerous cells. However, they tend to be disorganized; in case our body creates certain situations, they will get organized and could lead to causing a severe problem that could be damaging to one’s health.

If you make it a point to consume neem daily, it will help keep these cancerous cells to a certain number in the body and prevent them from ganging up together against the system.

Anti-bacterial benefits

There are bacteria all around you; in fact, there are many bacteria inside you as well. There are a large number of microorganisms living inside of you than you can imagine. When you do not have these, you cannot digest anything, and in fact, you may not even exist. While most of these bacteria are helpful, some of them can be detrimental to health.

The human body spends a large amount of energy to fight this bacteria, but if there are too much bacteria, your body will expend more energy than is required. When you use neem, both externally as well as internally, the bacteria will be contained, and you will not need too much energy to fight them. Consuming a certain amount of neem daily will help you fight this bacteria in the intestine, which will help keep your colon clean.

In case you find that your body is smelling in certain places, it means that you need to rub neem in those places and it will kill the bacteria that are lurking around in those regions. It is a great way to treat some skin issues as well.

Make a paste with neem, apply it to the troublesome region, let it dry and then you can wash it off when you bathe. Alternatively, soak some neem leaves in water overnight and bathe with it. Neem works excellent as an anti-bacterial cleanser.

A few things, however, that one must remember when it comes to not doing when it comes neem include, not consuming it in excess, as it could kill sperm cells. Pregnant women should not consume neem, that is in the first four to five months when the baby is developing. When a woman is trying to conceive, neem should not be consumed as well, as it creates heat in the body.
