Bitter plants tend to be valuable for liver health and liver support. But don’t worry, that bitter neem taste doesn’t need to be something you directly taste to receive the benefits. More on that later.
Neem has been called “the first line of defense” for your immune system for a few reasons.
Neem is specifically beneficial for signaling the body to release macrophage and cytokine cells. These are specific immune cells that search, seek, missile and destroy dangerous microorganisms in the body. These are highly trained and targeted immune cells that travel in the blood and lymphatic system.
These cells all work directly with your lymphatic and immune system. The healthier the response of the macrophage and cytokine response in the body, the more able you will be to handle anything negative thrown at you, from a strong immune line of defense.

Neem is a source of Vitamin C, which is the most researched antioxidant in the world. Vitamin c has immune boosting and neuroprotective qualities.
Calcium is a bone building mineral, a mineral that regulates heart health. Calcium also regulates nerve and muscle health.
Phosphorus is an essential mineral for playing a role in the how the body uses carbohydrates and fats. It’s needed by the body to make protein, to repair muscle and all other protein dependent cells and tissues.
Carotene is a carotenoid antioxidant that helps to maintain kidney, heart and lung health.
Glutamic acid is an amino acid that is responsible for the biosynthesis of protein. This amino acid plays a pivotal role in quite literally building protein.
Beyond these nutrients neem actually has a really nice amino acid and fatty acid profile. These amino acids help to build proteins to repair the body, including the cells. The fatty acids work to lubricate your joints as well as to power the brain, and the body’s energy systems as a whole.
Neem Beautifies The Hair & Skin:
Neem oil has been used for centuries in India as a beautifying agent for the hair and skin. It helps to hydrate and moisturize the skin, including a dry scalp. It moisturizes and strengthens the he hair while promoting healthy hair growth. Neem also purifies the blood which means that it cleans it of anything that does not allow oxygen and nutrients to travel through your blood to your skin and scalp freely.
Neem Builds A Stronger Immune System:
Because neem has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties as well as blood purifying properties it travels through your blood to purify it and remove threats that could be dirtying up your blood. By doing this your blood is healthier, stronger and more immune to attacks of any kind.
Beyond cleaning the blood and pathogens in the blood neem also keeps the body cool. It has cooling properties to the body when it is too hot, it’s adaptive in this way. An internal cooling agent.
Neem being an anti-inflammatory agent pairs with that body cooling effect. Inflammation causes heat, swelling, pain or stiffness. That is all excess inflammation (heat) in the body that neem can help to release.
Beyond all of these benefits, this is a powerful antioxidant meaning that it copes with oxidative (oxygen related) damage and stress. This antioxidant activity helps to cope with stress, stressors and threats that cause suppression of your immune system by way of force from stress.
Neem has also been said to be good for the lungs, liver and kidneys. Helping to rejuvenate and keep balanced. That’s why we chose to put neem in our Radiate Immunity blend.

It tastes amazing and helps the lungs, immunity and contains a rich tree sap resin known as “sangre de grado” or “Dragons blood” which is a key sap in building collagen bonds in the body.
The best part about it is that neem is a bitter tasting herb, so we took that (which I don’t like to stomach personally, and I can stomach a lot) and mixed it with other delicious yet medicinal botanicals like lemongrass, mint, cinnamon so that it would mask the favor, yet you’d still get all the benefits.
