Neem Active Toothpaste for Healthy Teeth and Gums
What is Neem Active Toothpaste?
Neem is a tree indigenous to South Asia and almost every part of the tree is used in Ayurvedic medicine (traditional Indian medicine) to cure a variety of different diseases and health issues. The neem tree is also consumed as food, in particular the flowers and young shoots which are eaten as a vegetable.
The Neem Active Toothpaste combines the antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties of neem along with the many benefits of modern toothpaste to provide complete oral hygiene.
In 2007, during the worldwide toothpaste incident involving use of DEG (Diethylene Glycol), the Neem Active Toothpaste, then owned and manufactured by Calcutta Chemical Co. Ltd in India, was deemed to pose health risks and was disapproved for sale in Canada. The brand was later sold to Henkel India, which in itself was acquired by Jyothy Laboratories Ltd, and no further reports have been forthcoming to suggest any problems with this product. It is also worth noting that Canada was the only country to issue this health advisory and the toothpastes found to contain DEG were largely products imitating popular brands originating from China.
Is Neem Active Toothpaste right for me?
If you have gum problems the Neem Active Toothpaste may be just the product you need. Many reviewers suggested that using this toothpaste reduced gum sensitivity or bleeding of the gums. Occasionally, some reviewers also suggested that using the Neem Active toothpaste had a whitening effect on their teeth.
If you are looking to replace your regular toothpaste with something new, the Neem Active Toothpaste is also great for everyday use. It has a fresh flavor that is alternately minty or citrusy according to reviewers although neem leaves are said to taste very bitter. This is likely due to the flavor and saccharin added in the toothpaste to make the taste more palatable.
The anti-bacterial properties of neem are likely the ones most likely to benefit the average user of this toothpaste. If you suffer from cavities, bleeding of the gums or sensitive gums, using the Neem Active Toothpaste is likely to reduce these problems. Daily use also helps in preventing these dental problems from arising in the first place.
The fresh herbal taste of this toothpaste is an excellent alternative to the minty menthol taste common to most brands. If you are sensitive to menthol or irritated by the minty taste, the Neem Active Toothpaste provides a suitable alternative.
Things to watch out for:
There are no issues that we can think of with regards to Neem Active Toothpaste. It contains fluoride but this is a common ingredient in most toothpaste brands and noted for its efficacy in preventing cavities.
Is the Neem Active Toothpaste worth a try?
We believe that you should definitely try out the Neem Active Toothpaste. This is an everyday product and priced very reasonably and you can substitute it for your regular brand when you run out. If, as suggested by most reviewers, it reduces bleeding of the gums and sensitivity then the reduced dental fees alone should make this a bargain. The taste and flavor is pleasant, while most reviewers approved of its fresh herbal taste.

Has a fresh minty taste and has mostly all natural ingredients which appeals to me but was disappointed to see that it does actually contain SLS. Having said that though I had a sore spot on my gum next to a tooth and that cleared up with 24 hrs.

I have an long time family friend who told me about Neem. She is 70 years old and looks like a million dollars. I tried Neem and game a tube to 6 others and we did a little experiment. We all religiously meet our 6 month Dental obligation, we all floss and brush at least twice a day. After 2-3 months of Neem each dentist wanted to know what we had done. There were comments like "has it been 6 months since your last visit?" or " Funny, I documented that we were going to do a deep cleaning this time but I see no need for that now". Since Feb 2013 I have bought 3 cases and have given them out as gifts.
