What Scientific Evidence Shows That Neem Oil Kills Fungus?

Like many homeopathic remedies for foot fungus, there have been no studies to date that draw a definitive link between Neem Oil and the curing of toenail fungus or athlete’s foot. However, in the desperate search for an effective and affordable cure, one may choose to apply the results of other studies done in a clinical setting and infer that Neem Oil most likely has antifungal properties.

– A 2009 study published in the journal Toxins found that “Neem extracts affected the growth rate and sporulation” of different types of fungi isolates. They reported that the Neem extracts had “fungitoxic activity.” Scientists are not entirely sure how the Neem oil works to kill fungi, but they suspect there are several different chemicals in Neem trees that repel fungi. More research is needed, they concluded.

A 2011 study published in the Brazilian Journal of Microbiology reported Neem extract to be effective at treating several different types of fungi when mixed with organic ethanol. Neem leaf extract had a toxic effect on 19 out of 22 human pathogenic molds, including: Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus terreus, Candida albicans, and Microsporum gypseum.
