Neem tree

Medicinal uses of Neem tree

Azadirachtin, a complex tetranortriterpenoid limonoid from the Neem seed, is the main component responsible for both antifeedant and toxic effects in insects. Another limonoid and sulfur-containing compound with repellent, antiseptic, contraceptive, antipyretic, and antiparasitic properties are found elsewhere in the tree, e.g., leaves, flowers, bark, and roots (Mordue and Nisbet 2000)
