There is currently very little information available about the most effective and safest neem dosage for any use. Most dosing recommendations (by natural medicine practitioners) are made based on practical experience with the supplement. Since the best neem doses have not been established, you should follow the dosing instructions on your particular neem product.
As with most herbal supplements, the best (most effective and safe) doses for neem have not been scientifically established yet. Therefore, most neem dosing recommendations are based on practical experience or traditional usage of neem.
Neem has been studied very little in humans. As a result, there is very little good information about the safest and most effective neem dosages for any use. Practitioners of natural medicine may recommend a neem dosage based on their practical experience with neem and traditional usage. It seems reasonable to follow such recommendations, since no other information is available. Similarly, it is probably reasonable to simply follow the dosing instructions on your particular neem product.
However, keep in mind that there is no guarantee that such recommended neem dosages are either safe or effective. Also, it is important to know that neem seems to be especially toxic in young children and infants (see Neem Side Effects), and it should probably be assumed that any neem dosage may be unsafe in children.
Some considerations for people taking neem include:
- Since the manufacturing of supplements (such as neem) is not closely regulated, it is important to choose a trustworthy manufacturer for neem supplements. Your pharmacist can help you choose a neem supplement from a reliable manufacturer.
- If you have any chronic health problems or take any prescription medications, it is probably a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before taking neem.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or neem dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider.
