What’s the difference between leaf and bark supercritical extracts?

 In General, Neem in the News

We sell supercritical neem extracts in three versions — leaf, bark and a combination of leaf and bark — because both have some significant advantages.

Most of the research work being done around the world today focuses on neem leaf extract. It’s much easier to harvest and it’s the part of the tree most often used in traditional Ayurvedic medical. Neem bark is more difficult to harvest, although it can be done sustainably without harming the tree.

Although neem bark extract is very similar to neem leaf extract, it does have some critical differences depending upon your personal health goals.

We’ll assume you know the benefits of neem leaf if you’re reading this post, so we’ll concentrate on the specific benefits of neem bark:

Last but not least, if you’re taking an extract rather than a capsule, the bark tastes much better than the leaf!

While this post focuses on supercritical extract, the same holds true for water-based infusions that you can make at home. We don’t sell it because it would be so difficult to preserve, but it’s easy to do – just be sure to refrigerate any infusion you don’t use immediately. (Mix a scant ¼ teaspoon of neem bark in a cup of very hot water, stir well and allow to cool. The powder will settle to the bottom of the cup, so you can drink it or pour the dregs on your favorite plant.)
