We combine the supercritical neem leaf and bark to take advantage of compounds found in each part of the neem tree since neem has hundreds of active ingredients.
Researchers know which compounds play a role in some issues, but they’re still working to determine what impact other compounds may have. Combining neem leaf and neem bark allows you to take advantage of the best of both products. (Learn more about the difference between neem leaf and neem bark here.)
And yes, you could combine powdered neem leaf and neem bark for a similar impact, but supercritical extracts have some key advantages. First, they’re super-concentrated so that just three drops is a full dose of neem. Perhaps more importantly, an extract is much more bioavailable than the raw material.
Think of it this way. Your tummy has to digest raw neem before it can begin to extract the active compounds. Supercritical extracts already have done that — and probably done it far more efficiently than your digestive system. That’s why our grandmothers made tea or alcohol extracts — of course, they called them tinctures — because they’re more effective than the raw material.
INGREDIENTS: Supercritical extracts of neem leaf and neem bark, sesame seed oil
