Neem is a magical tree.
With over 140 biologically-active compounds present in its various parts, which makes it effective against a wide host of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites, science is just catching up to what ancient Indians have always known about neem.
From root to leaves, every part of this tree has incredible health benefits.
And that's exactly what we are going to discuss today - the benefits of drinking boiled neem water every day.
Just stay tuned till the end to find out the correct way you should boil neem leaves at home to reap the benefits listed out below.
#1 Neem-Infused Tea: The Immunity Tonic
Neem-infused tea can be very bitter. But this herbal concoction is an excellent way to boost your immunity and keep you safe from all microbial infections as well as allergies.
And here's how you can make it:-
Step 1: Take 3 - 5 neem leaves, drop it into a cup of boiling water and allow this to steep for at least 5 minutes.
Step 2: Filter out the water and add a spoonful of honey to balance out the bitterness.
Alternatively, you can use this water to prepare black tea or green tea for a milder experience.
#2 Purifies Your Gut
From stomach ulcers to purifying your intestines, drinking neem water every day in the morning is an excellent way to stay healthy and strong.
After all, an unhealthy gut gives rise to myriad problems, including nutrient deficiency, indigestion, and diseases.
#3 Excellent For Diabetics
The compounds in neem take over the action of insulin in our body, which brings down our blood sugar level. Therefore, drinking neem water every day is a great way to control diabetes and get off the anti-diabetic medicines.
#4 Effective Against Gum Diseases and Toothache
Don't want to visit the dentist?
Add neem water to your daily oral hygiene routine.
This is because when you use neem water to rinse your mouth for at least 30 seconds to 1 minute every day, the medicinal compounds in the water fights off bacteria that cause gum diseases (both gingivitis and periodontitis), tooth decay, and bad breath.
Just make sure to use only slightly warm neem water for this purpose so it enhances the blood circulation in your mouth and gums (and does not burn your mouth).
#5 Reduces the Length of Menstrual Cycle
While drinking neem water when you are pregnant (or want to conceive) is strictly not recommended, if you are woman who suffers from painful menstrual cycles and anemia (induced by the excessive blood loss), you should start drinking neem water every day as it reduces the length of your period and its pain.
Easy Neem Water Recipe
Preparing neem water at home is very simple.
All you need are neem leaves collected fresh from a neighborhood tree and a pot of water.
Step 1: Add neem leaves to a pot of water (3 - 5 neem leaves for every cup of water), and bring it to boil.
Step 2: Keep boiling the leaves until the water turns slightly discolored and starts to give off a strong, pungent smell.
Step 3: Take off the pot from the flames and allow the water to cool to room temperature before consuming it.
Important Tip: Don't store the water. Make only enough for immediate consumption (or use).
