Neem’s Role in Antibiotic Resistance

One of the most urgent threats facing humanity today is antibiotic resistance.

Antibiotic resistant bacteria, or superbugs, are germs that don’t respond to the drugs designed to kill them and they threaten to return humans to the time when simple infections would likely lead to a painful and torturous death. Today, antibiotic resistant bacteria annually cause more than 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths in the United States. But where do most superbugs get their start? See the infographic for the scary answer.


Neem cake is a byproduct of the neem tree that is created after the removal of neem oil from neem fruit. Neem cake has many valued uses because of its unique chemical properties, but one of the most important is its function as a natural antifungal and antiviral livestock feed. Neem could naturally replace the abuse of antibiotics and ultimately create a healthier farm and planet overall.
