Traditional Benefits and Use of Neem

Neem is a natural deterrent and its use in shampoo or spray is effective for deterring fleas, mosquitoes, and some ticks. Dehydrated Neem leaves are sometimes used orally, to prevent and treat intestinal parasites and improve the immune system. They also reduce bad breath and prevent periodontal disease.

Neem has been used in India for over two millennia for its medicinal properties. It helps to prevent hair loss, dry skin, dandruff, makes the coat shine. It has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial when addressing various skin problems, such as allergies, dermatitis, and skin cancer. Also, the Azadiractin is a tetranortriterpenoid constituent of neem that interrupts metamorphosis in insects which helps deter insects and skin parasites from attaching on to a host.

    I’ve put little neem extract in my cats food at times in the past. I have one that is 14 years old and seems to be getting bacterial infections lately. I really don’t want to have to put her on medicine if I can help it. Would it be safe to put a little neen extract in her food?

    1. Team NHV says:

      Hi Diane,

      Thank you for reaching out to us!

      We’re sorry to hear that your kitty is dealing with a bacterial infection. It must be uncomfortable for her but we’re so glad to know that she has an amazing furparent like you to support and love her.

      If you’re using neem extract on your little one, we would highly suggest doing it with the supervision of your veterinarian. Especially if the neem extract you have is not specifically formulated for pets. While neem can be very beneficial for pets, it’s important that it’s administered in a formulation that’s safe for pets.

      Our supplement, BK-Detox, contains neem. This all-natural supplement can help to encourage detoxification of the body, balance immune system function, and can help to support important organs in the body.

      Here’s more on BK-Detox for you:

    Bom dia, tenho 2 cães, o macho tome 2 vezes por dia gardenal (épiléptico) e a cadela toma incurin (continência urinaria). Eles pode tomar 1g de suplemento neem, sem perder o efeito da medicação??? O veterinário deles, não tem conhecimento sobre essa planta. Obrigada

    1. Team NHV says:

      Olá Isabelle, obrigado pela sua pergunta! Infelizmente, só podemos dar recomendações sobre suplementos de NHV, pois não sabemos de que fonte vem o seu suplemento de nim e qual processo está incluído na sua produção.
      Para o seu filhote epiléptico, podemos recomendar Yucca: potente antiinflamatório natural para problemas neuronais.
      Natures Immuno: Mistura de cogumelos valiosa para proteção do sistema neuro devido aos seus efeitos antioxidantes e antiinflamatórios.
      Old timer: tem ações anti-inflamatórias e restauradoras do sistema nervoso.

      Para a cadela com incontinência, podemos recomendar: Tripsy – nosso principal suporte urinário que auxilia no funcionamento normal do trato urinário.
      Turmeric – o nosso suplemento com propriedades anti-inflamatórias, que pode ajudar a aliviar o desconforto.

      Esperamos que isso ajude! Deixe-nos saber se você precisar de mais orientações! Estamos sempre aqui para ajudar!
