Is BITREEN safe for consumption?
Numerous of possible toxicity resulted in a determination that leaf and bark are very low in toxicity especially when
taken orally. Neem not only kills
some infective organisms directly but also boosts the immune response on several levels. This increases the body's ability to fight bacterial, viral and fungicidal infections itself.
BITREEN appears to be very safe to consume in reasonable quantities.
How BITREEN works the biochemical level?
When invaded by microbes (anything the body recognizes as foreign), the immune system releases antibodies that lock onto and neutralize the intruder. BITREEN not only enhances the liver but also produce antibody by which blood cells are unleashed to kill the invaders.
By enhancing the body's first line of defense, BITREEN helps the immune system respond quickly to infections that might otherwise gain a strong foothold that would then be more difficult to overcome.
