Most of us rely on Ayurveda to take care of all our health needs. It could be anything from chewing a variety of leaves to drinking juice — because the benefits they provide are like no other! If there’s one plant that has been talked about for generations, it is neem. Also called ‘panacea for all diseases’, it is consumed in various forms, but today we are going to speak about neem juice. As other parts of the neem plant, the juice is a powerhouse of antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.

We agree it’s bitter to taste, but as they say, ‘no pain, no gain’! So, get set to be blown away by the benefits of this juice. Ready to find out?

1.Helps with digestive issues

Drinking neem juice first thing every morning will help to relieve your digestive issues. Its astringent properties reduce the formation of gas, and thus help with bringing down bloating, flatulence and abdominal issues. This potent drink also helps to get rid of constipation and other problems.

There is no bigger buzzword today, especially in the covid era. That’s exactly why you shouldn’t miss out on the benefits of neem juice. It helps to treat various infections and also helps to fight all kinds of microbes. Thanks to its anti-fungal and antiviral properties, it works wonders to reduce the symptoms of fever, common cold, sore throat and more.

3. Reduces wounds and ulcers

Once again, the anti-inflammatory properties of neem juice help with all kinds of ulcers, including ulcerative colitis, peptic ulcers, sores and mouth ulcers. Moreover, the bioactive compounds in neem juice also enhance tissue regeneration, and promote wound healing. It is also sometimes used to dress wounds.

4. Purifies blood

Neem is replete with detoxifying properties, so how can this drink be devoid of that? Drink up a glass every morning to get rid of toxins from your body. And the best part is it cleanses the blood, and makes it more pure. Apart from that, it also improves blood circulation. It’s a win-win, we say!
