BioPure’s Neem SynergyTM is a potent combination of three of the most valued herbs in Ayurveda: Neem, Amla and Guduchi. 120 capsules per bottle.
Neem comes from a large tropical evergreen tree, commonly known as the “Margosa tree,” that is native to India. Its scientific name is Azadirachta indica and it is in the family Meliaceae. The Neem tree has played a key role in the lives of Indians for centuries, providing food and shelter, a variety of products used for hygiene and beauty aids, agricultural fertilizers, insecticides, and traditional medicines. Ayurvedic, Unani, and Homeopathic traditions have utilized various parts of the tree exhaustively, bringing Neem the nickname “Wonder Tree” among others. Over 135 bioactive compounds have been identified within the various parts of the Neem tree. A few of the more well known and highly studied are azadirachtin, quercitin, and liminoids such as nimbidin.
Research on Neem is showing a long list of potential health benefits, including supporting skin health, antioxidant processes and the digestive tract.* It is also commonly used in toothpastes, skin creams, soaps, and much more.
BioPure’s Neem Synergy capsules contain two other botanicals prevalent in Indian Ayurveda: Gudduchi and Amla. Gudduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) is a vine, often found climbing up Neem trees. Its most notable traditional uses are supporting the immune system, urinary health and mood. Amla (Emblica officinalis), commonly known as Indian Gooseberry, is a source of Vitamin C and polyphenols. Both Gudduchi and Amla, like Neem, have a broad spectrum of potential health benefits, many of them based upon their antioxidant properties. Together, these three beneficial herbs work synergistically to support the immune system.
A state-of-the-art process known as “supercritical extraction” is used to isolate the active ingredients in Neem Synergy. In this technique, carbon dioxide is heated and pressurized to a critical point and then mixed with the botanical, effectively separating out the active ingredients of the plant. When the pressure is released, the C02 evaporates off and can be recycled, making this a very clean and environmentally friendly process. The result is a highly concentrated, pure extract, undamaged by excessive heat and uncontaminated by harsh chemical residues, as is often the case with more conventional methods. The supercritical extracts (SC02) are then blended with water-soluble extracts (PSE) along with 400 mg of raw whole Neem powder in each serving. This combination of products provides you with an effective, full spectrum of the active constituents of each plant. The ingredients are so pure and potent, you can smell the essence of the fresh original herbs. In addition, our Neem is 100% organic, Kosher Certified, with no synthetic additives or animal ingredients, and is encapsulated in a vegetable cellulose (”K”) capsule.
