Neem & Diabetes


    Neem is widely prescribed by contemporary Ayurvedic physicians for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Van der Nat etal. (1991a) give an extensive review of in vivo studies and a limited clinical trial supporting the hypothesis that leaf extracts, seed oil and nimbidin exert hypoglycaemic / antihyperglycaemic effects.

    The general impression is that maybe neem enhances insulin receptor sensitivity since it seems to work well on Type II diabetics.

    Neem tree has been used since time immemorial in treating large number of diseases. Its uses have been mentioned in the early vedic texts as a naturally occurring wonder drug curing diseases like blood pressure and diabetes. The traditional system of medicine such as ayurveda has been making use of this herb to cure the disease. In the modern times, diabetes is more of a life style disease rather than anything else; neem is being widely used by herbal medicine manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies as more and more people all across the globe fall victim to it. It is a cause of number of other diseases like heart disease, blindness etc.

Part of Neem Used in Diabetes

    Neem leaf extracts and seeds are used as an active ingredient as an effective cure for diabetes. It has been scientifically proven after a number of tests and research by leading medical institutes, that neem parts have high efficacy in treating the disease. Natural neem tablets are being manufactured and exported the world over for treating large number of patients. Neem leaf extracts improve the blood circulation by dilating the blood vessels and also helpful in reducing the need for hypo-glycaemic drugs. According to scientific research undertaken neem leaf extracts and seed oil help to reduce the insulin requirement. Neem tablets help to lower the blood glucose levels.

    Neem tablets can also be taken as a dietary supplement for prevention of the disease. The basis of the neem capsules can be traced to the early ayurvedic use of the herb, which is further strengthened due to research and clinical trails being undertaken by leading research organisations.

Reason for popularity of Neem in Diabetes Curing Drugs

    The popularity of neem based anti diabetes drugs is due to the fact that not only they are more effective in curing the disease but also have no side effects. There are no synthetic materials used in the production of the drugs. Neem is considered to be one of the safest medicinal herbs available; FDA's database does not include any references to neem having any adverse effects when used in medicines.


Important: There is some evidence that neem can lower blood sugar levels and might cause blood sugar to go too low. If you have diabetes and use neem, monitor your blood sugar carefully. It might be necessary to change the dose of your diabetes medication.

Organ transplant: There is a concern that neem might decrease the effectiveness of medications that are used to prevent organ rejection. Do not use neem if you have had an organ transplant.

Surgery: Because neem might lower blood sugar levels, there is a concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using neem at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.


References: Neem leaf is a traditional herb for treating diabetes (Alam, et al, 1989) and has been scientifically proven effective in treating and preventing diabetes; (Murty, 1978); (Chakrabartty, 1984a); (Chakrabartty, 1984b); (El-Harwary, 1990). Oral doses of neem leaf extracts significantly reduced insulin requirements for non-insulin dependent diabetes. (Pillai, 1981b); (Luscombe, 1974); (Murty, 1978) has also proven effective and has been able to inhibit increases in blood sugar levels by as much as 45% in test animals (Sharma, 1983).
