I have diabetes but I want to take Neem capsules, is it safe or beneficial to me? We strongly believe that Neem capsules can benefit everyone. It’s important to take special precaution when dealing with diagnosed medical conditions and it’s also important to remember that our recommendations should never replace the opinion/advice of a medical professional. Before stopping or adding any new supplements to your diet its important to consult your trusted medical professional.
Diabetes is a chronic, metabolic disease characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose (or blood sugar), which, if left untreated may also pose serious damage to the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Neem can help reverse the damage caused to these body systems and also improve bodily functions.
Neem capsules will help detox the buildup of chemicals in your liver from prescription medication use. Neem also helps naturally regulate blood sugar levels, which sometimes can interfere with insulin use. It is very, very important to test blood sugar at least daily when taking Neem capsules. You may see that your need for insulin decreases as you start detoxifying your body and your normal body functions regulate.
Neem leaves are loaded with flavonoids, triterpenoid, anti-viral compounds and glycosides, which may help manage blood sugar levels and ensure there is no surge in glucose.
"I forgot to put on sunblock and now I have a sunburn - What can I do?" The first thing you need to do is take a cool or lukewarm Neem Tub Tea bath and then treat your skin with a high quality moisturizer that will sooth, heal and protect. Our Beta Neem Cream contains all the essentials you need. Hemp oil, Jojoba oil, Zinc Oxide and Neem oil.
Hemp oil is rich in the fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, as well as amino acids that aid in collagen and elastin production. Hemp oil also has many phytonutrients that work in conjunction with our other healing essential oils to nurture and feed your skin!
Zinc Oxide creates a barrier on the skin and reflects the harmful UVA and UVB rays, protecting against future sunburn. Zinc Oxide is also a wonderful natural healing agent, and when applied topically on sunburn delivers the nutrients where your body needs it most.
Geranium oil is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic that is beneficial in this cream to prevent acne as well as regulate the oil production of the pores. Added bonus, it also has a sweet, uplifting smell that inspires relaxation!
Make sure to drink plenty of water and take Neem capsules to avoid dehydration and help your body heal from the inside out! The high vitamin E and antioxidant levels in Neem will help deeply moisturize and heal the skin
Neem contains anti-inflammatory and aspirin-like substances that can help reduce the pain and swelling associated with sunburn and rid the skin of bacteria. If blisters form, don’t break them! They contain your natural body fluid and are a protective layer. Instead, treat them with Neem oil. This will help to heal them faster and keep infectious bacteria away from open wounds.

Joan from Florida asked: What is the best bang for my buck? I am a busy mom and want to stay protected and keep my kids protected from all the parasites, bugs & mosquitoes? What a great question and one that I can fully relate to. There are so many uses of neem and being raised in Florida as well, we've searched for a natural bug spray to protect us. I have been a busy productive mom for almost 40 years, happily married for over 43 years, a grandmother for over 11 years a world traveler for way over 50 years and an entrepreneur way before the spelling & definition of this word was realized.
Four decades ago, I designed and created my first and LAST petite needle point boldly announcing a newly realized “mom” secret: “If mother isn’t HAPPY, nobody is HAPPY!” Now that I am 40 years older with much more life experience, I decided to edit that ole “truth”: If mother isn’t HEALTHY, nobody is HEALTHY."

Jill asks: I have toenail fungus. I used your neem cream on skin. It worked great and made my old ugly feet look and feel better. But, I'm using tea tree oil on the nail. Is there something better or stronger I could use? Thanks for any help. Good Morning Jill! You have a great question. We have had the opportunity to work directly with toe nail fungus so the suggestions that I will make are based upon our experience. Neem is anti fungal so there is a good start!
