Indians worship neem, whereas turmeric, also known as haldi, is a natural and necessary ingredient for cooking and Indian rituals.
Ayurvedic scholars already knew the benefits of neem and turmeric. Modern science has also realized its uses and benefits in recent years.
Neem and turmeric have innumerous benefits; let us see the main ones:
Anti-inflammatory – The multiple chemical substances like curcumin in haldi and nimbolide in neem regulate the immune response, have antioxidant activity, and also reduce inflammation. Therefore, turmeric and neem reduce the risk of cancer, and also the effects of post-cancer, chemo, and radiotherapy treatments.
Purifier – Both are excellent cleansers for our skin, body, blood, and the energy system. Soak neem leaves overnight, and put some in bathing water with a pinch of haldi for clear, glowing skin with less itching, and leaving a refreshing feeling. They also take care of body odor gently.
Heart protective and hepato protective – They help in smooth the functioning of the liver, thus reducing the amount of cholesterol production and reducing heart diseases, as shown in the study below.
4. Anti- hyperglycemic – Both help in reducing blood sugar and thus in the control of diabetes.
5. Antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal – By improving the immunity of the body, the susceptibility of falling prey to different types of infections decreases. Because of these properties, they are very useful for the people who suffer from cold and cough, blocked nostrils, sinusitis, and recurrent illnesses with climate change.

How to take – You can make small, peanut-sized balls by mixing with water, or you can take one to two capsules of 100 mg each, on an empty stomach, with water.
Neem and turmeric offer protection from various diseases such as cardiovascular, cancer prevention, Alzheimer’s, inflammatory bowel diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, and cystic fibrosis.
