Angad Yadav, Hemant Toshikhane, Harish Daga

Nimba (Azadirachta indica A. Juss, Meliaceae) has been used extensively in Ayurveda. In different ailments, all five sections of Nimba (root, bark, leaves, herb, fruit) were used separately or collectively in Panchanga. Except for an occasionally accessible component of Nimba, known as Nimba, which is sweet in taste and demands special care, all parts of Nimba are mainly bitter in taste. Nimba is a milky sweet liquid that naturally oozes from the Nimba tree's trunk, large leaves, and roots. Free sugars, amino acids and organic acids are found in Nimba. Nimba is one of Ayurveda's most effective and widely used herbal medicines. A herb with antibacterial, antifungal, anthelmintic, diuretic, hypotensive, analgesic, male contraception effects is readily available. Nimba stimulates the immune system. Complete medicinal applications include almost all aspects of the plant, which are flowers, leaves, bark, fruit, seeds and roots. Azadirachtin, Azadirachnol, Melianon, Nimocin, Nimbocetinetc are the chemical constituents of Nimba. Decoction from Nimba leaves is very effective in treating female disorders locally.
