1. How does Neem help diabetes: Scientific studies show Neem leaf and certain extracts of the leaf and seed oil are effective in reducing insulin requirements...See more.

Different studies show insulin requirement reductions of between 20- 50 % for those who take five grams of dried Neem leaf capsules daily. There are even anecdotal reports of diabetics chewing a single Neem leaf daily that have been able to eliminate hypoglycemic drugs completely.

Based on the many studies of Neem's effect on diabetes, the Indian government approved Neem-based tablets for sale by a pharmaceutical company as a treatment for diabetes. One study of the product published in The Journal of General Medicine showed the tablets alone significantly lowered blood glucose levels. Tests were also performed on the effect of taking the tablets along with standard hypoglycemic drugs. These tests showed that the Neem-based tablets significantly improved the effectiveness of standard hypoglycemic drugs when taken together.

Circulation problems are a frequent cause of amputations for diabetics. Neem leaf extracts cause the blood vessels to dilate, allowing for increased circulation to the extremities.

In one personal experience, a friend's diabetic brother was about to lose a foot because of poor circulation. After taking Neem leaf capsules three times a day and wrapping his foot in a poultice of Neem leaves for several days, the circulation returned to his foot and the amputation was cancelled.

There is no consensus as to the mechanism of the results observed. Some researchers believe it can work by either reserve insulin being released or by directing the reduction of blood glucose by metabolic factors. In either case, Neem can be extremely useful in treating both types of diabetes mellitus.
