Neem oil treats Covid as effectively as any drug

Reading time: 1 minute

Neem oil is a natural antiviral that can combat Covid and its variants, a new study has found.

The oil is a safe remedy that can treat, and reduce the spread, of the coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2 and variants that cause Covid-19.

Neem oil, an extract from the bark of the Neem tree, has previously been used to treat malaria, stomach and intestinal ulcers and skin diseases.

Now scientists from the University of Colorado School of Medicine have discovered that it can also combat the Covid viruses and reduce severe symptoms.  They tested it on virus samples taken from human lung cells and it was as effective as any drug on the market, the researchers said.  Neem also reduced viral spread and replication after infection.

Colleagues in India have also tested Neem oils on animals with similar results.
