  • Abstract

    Neem (Azadirachta indica) has become important in the global context today because it offers solution to the major concerns faced by humankind. A. indica is a fast-growing widely distributed evergreen tree that is most commonly found commonly in India, Africa, and America. A. indica is perhaps the most useful traditional medicinal plant in India. Each part of the neem tree has some medicinal property and is thus commercially exploitable. It is now considered as a valuable source of unique natural products for the development of medicines against various diseases and also for the development of industrial products. It has its own properties which make it unique such as pesticidal, antiallergenic, antidermatic, antifeedant, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antipyorrheic, antiscabic, cardiac, diuretic, insecticidal, larvicidal, nematicidal, spermicidal, and other biological activities. Hence, it is also referred to as “one solution to thousand problems.”
