The Neem tree has been used for centuries in India and well known as the village pharmacy. Neem is easy to grow in a wide range of temperatures and conditions, and the tree can live for 150 to 200 years. It has a straight trunk and the tree can reach a height of 30 meters and more, though 15 to 20 meters is the average. The bark is hard, rough and scaly, fissured even in young trees. It’s often brown, but in older trees it can be pale or grayish-black. The branches produce dark green leaves that form a dense, round canopy, up to 20 meters across. (It makes a very good shade tree). The flowers are large clusters of up to 250 individual white blooms producing a heavenly scent that you can smell from as much as a mile away. The olive like, edible fruit is oval to round, thin skin and contains seeds. ┬áThe fruit is green initially and turns yellow when ripe.

Abstract

Azadirachta indica, commonly known as neem, has attracted worldwide prominence in recent years, owing to its wide range of medicinal properties. Neem has been extensively used in Ayurveda, Unani and Homoeopathic medicine and has become a cynosure of modern medicine. Neem elaborates a vast array of biologically active compounds that are chemically diverse and structurally complex. More than 140 compounds have been isolated from different parts of neem. All parts of the neem tree- leaves, flowers, seeds, fruits, roots and bark have been used traditionally for the treatment of inflammation, infections, fever, skin diseases and dental disorders. The medicinal utilities have been described especially for neem leaf. Neem leaf and its constituents have been demonstrated to exhibit immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, antihyperglycaemic, antiulcer, antimalarial, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, antimutagenic and anticarcinogenic properties.
